goals: to GAIN weight, and strength

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

July of last year started a whole mess o hospitalizations and surgeries. I don't know how much time I actually manged to be home, but it wasn't a lot at all:( Finally, just when I thought I was doing ok again, in December I went in for the removal of a small. non-cancerous mass that was blocking one ureter - and internal mayhem ensued, worse than before. Because my system got so drained by all the previous stuff, I developed two fistulas and they tried a wound VAC on the bigger one which ended up getting infected. Then I was transferred to Lahey Clinic where the surgeon there washed out the wound, removing the VAC, and put in a pseudo-ileostomy.

Said surgeon released me on Sunday, on a soft foods diet, with instructions to gain weight and strengthen myself again so that hopefully the ostomy can be reversed. Any ideas about soft foods are welcome!
