Queen of TMI.

Everything has been easier recovering from this latest surgery.  No doubt it has to do with a scheduled surgery rather than the emergency of five months ago.

Getting out of bed by myself, Tweeting incoherently, walking the hospital floor, being released from the hospital, sleeping in my own bed rather than a recliner or a couch, ending pain medication, shaving my legs, helping with household chores – these are all things that happened sooner than last time.

Except one thing.

One very important thing.

Discharge papers dictate that I should be taking colace and/or senna for this problem.  HA, they’ve barely worked this time around.

I did find another solution yesterday.  Who knew?

Coffee provides me with poop relief.

(Did I mention I was back to drinking coffee earlier this time?)

  1. Well, I’ll join you in TMI and admit that coffee keeps me regular every morning. Like clockwork. So I’m not surprised at all. :)

  2. I have a one-word recommendation for you: Miralax.

    I would not be surviving pregnancy without it :)

  3. Coffee is the elixir of the the Gods -And it’s CRAPTACULAR!

    I’m so gqad that you’re healing quickly, and that coffee is, um, helping. :-)

  5. I started drinking coffee pretty regularly after my colonoscopy results, partly because they said no soda. But I feel like it helps, for sure. Never was much of a coffee drinker before, but now I am!

  6. So glad you got that out of the way so you could be discharged. Gotta love coffee! LOL! (Would love to follow you on Twitter too. You can find me @selenamki.)

  7. I’m with Nici: Miralax! Coffee doesn’t have that kind of effect on me, but I do mix my miralax into my coffee. Hope the coffee keeps on working for you!
