Katierays Get Well Tree - be strong like bull!

Cheektowaga, NY


Well, on 2.06 I went in for surgery at the Cleveland IBD Clinic, it was a 6hr process but according to my Dr yesterday and her looking at everything with the 6inches removed and many biopsies of lymphnodes they believe they've gotten all the active disease. This has left me currently with an ileostomy bag and instructions to keep hydration and nutrition up. The salt in my drinks is ..oyvey.. the Metamucil is ..blah... but I gotta do what I gotta do. The salt in drinks was too much at the beginning, so Dr's said I could use extra salt on my food, so that's what I've been doing. Anyone have any tips or tricks for gulping down the 8ozs of fluid with Metamucil? It's so hard for me to drink a straight 8ozs sometimes especially of a colder liquid. I'll get there.. I guess in other words, I can go on and on, but man, this has been 1 of the toughest times I've had with this disease.

Special Notes

Diet - at times my body craves vinegar / probably due to the dehydration and needing salt. chicken has been ok so far, haven't tried too much besides hard boiled eggs and air fried potatoes.
