3 and a half weeks later, 5 enemas, a nasal/gastric tube, being fed through a drip for 2 weeks, finally having bowel surgery and I am now about an hour away from going home. Just waiting for them to take the staples out and then I am out of here - I can't wait. Even when I had my major debulking surgery 2 years ago I was only in hospital for 10 days. Can't wait to get back to my family and Max the dog!!!
