Dear Derin, CONGRATULATIONS on being tubeless!!! If you are starting to run around a little more perhaps it will help take care of any extra poundage. In the meantime ENJOY! Gain a little poundage cause your out of bondage!
Forgot to post, got the PICC line out the 29th of December. Tube free for a couple of weeks now! It’s allowed me to start running (and by running, I mean jogging slowly and plodding along since I’m so out of cardio shape) and get back to pushups and exercising. If only I could figure out how to control what I eat……
Great news Derin, thanks for sharing! Loving your attitude as well with the whole leaking rather than having the tube in too! Hopefully things go as plan and tube number 2 will be out according to the plan!
YIPPEE, Derin, YIPPEE! What a great Chanukah gift! Say, I used to get bags to just put over the hole that was left from the tube. You can get them at a Med Supply store. Just put it right over the hole with a little adhesive, works like a charm! Change it as needed. Have a great Chinese dinner tonight! You know, this is the night for Jewish peeps to out for Chinese!!!
Well, blood work from Monday showed everything OK so they pulled out the biliary drain! Officially passed the 2 week ‘capping trial’ so I have 1 of 2 tubes out of me at long last! PICC line still in, going to continue the IV antibiotics until Monday evening and see the doctor Tuesday and the last tube should be out!
Probably should have backed off of the bile thinner for a couple of days prior to the tube coming out… I’m leaking like a sieve right now, but hey, better than a tube in you, right?
