In my early days post op just before and during treatment I lived on my couch. It was closest to the bathroom, kitchen, door, and phone charger and I liked being alone at night so I wouldn't bother anyone when I couldn't sleep. I spent a lot of time on Google but, for me, it was a useful tool. I found this blog and an old girlfriend from high school who was a nurse and cancer survivor who would message me all night if I needed it.
I researched and had enough knowledge to have Input in the choice of chemo drugs. In this country, the US, oncologists get paid by big Pharma to choose extra drugs like Taxol that take a long time and are expensive to administer and, in my case was not even effective.
I also found out about pelvic floor physical therapy. My surgeon, a man with no bedside manner, refused to give me a prescription but my GP, a woman who had never heard of it, thought it was a great idea. When all those organs are removed and muscles are cut you have nothing to hold up your bladder and incontinence is highly likely. Also the eight inch vertical scar in my belly could have caused scar tissue formation and adhesions. I am happy to say that the magic works. Not only do I have control of my pelvic floor but massage, which I was also taught, got rid of scar tissue and pain I had developed as a result of the interior scarring. Now we are rebuilding my abdominal muscles and at 66 years of age I am starting to look buff.
I encourage you to push for this option or at least look to Google for Kegel exercises and scar massage.
