Doctor Visit – 6/24/09

I can say this visit was much better than my last visit. (read it here)  Lori went with me and that help me to stay calm.  Usually when I get nervous I crack jokes, so I was crackin’ them like crazy.  Lori and I were dying laughing in the office.

My doctor came and and started checking my stomach and scar area.  “Everything is looking good,” he told me.  “Roll over on your side,” was his next statement.

I knew what that meant.  Gulp!  Here we go, some finger checking good time ahead.  I can say it was MUCH better than last time.  I didn’t feel as much pressure and I just tried to relax and breath while he checked me.  He said that I was still dilated and my opening was nothing like last time, so there was no need for any further stretching.  This was good news for me.

He told me it would be good for me to self dilate from time to time to keep the anus stretched.  I told him that I had tried twice over the past few days, but I wasn’t very successful.  He asked me if I felt the staples up in there?  I told him that I had not.  I didn’t realize that I will have staples in there for the rest of my life.  Where the J-pouch and the anus connect there is a ring of staples that, apparently I can feel when I dilate properly.

My Doctor gave me some pointers to help in my dilation process.  First, it is better if I don’t have anything in my pouch.  I made that mistake the other night.  I put my finger in and my butt popped like a balloon and I pooped/sprayed all over my hand. 😮  Thank God I had a glove on!!  So having an empty pouch can prevent that.  Second, I don’t have to dig around up there, just get my finger up to my knuckle to stretch that area where the pouch and the anus meet.  Third, wear gloves, use lubricant, and RELAX.  The last part is the hardest.  How do you relax during this?  People have told me that you learn to relax and it becomes easier.  I’m just glad that I don’t have to do it every day.

All in all it was a great day.  I am seeing so much success and improvement every day.  I am so thankful for my doctor and the surgery.  It really has been a blessing and really has given me my life back.  Thank You Jesus!!!

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
