A Minor Problem

Just an update on progress so far - well in a nutshell I'm feeling great! I just have a minor problem that I think that I have developed a small hernia where Bob used to be, just at the top of the scar but that was always a risk especially since in the early days of the reversal I did a fair amount of straining. Anyway I'm seeing the Consultant in the middle of July so they can take a look.
Things have settled down with my loo habits provided I take my regular dose of Fybogel and I'm not taking my Loperomide unless I have a really important and long day where I'll be away from a loo. Fitness wise I have walked to work and back most days for the last couple of months which is 2.5 miles there and 3.5 miles back by the scenic route. The best thing is that last week I did my first run since February and banged in a 5 miler straight away and without feeling tired so I must have kept myself pretty fit. last night I did another just to make sure it wasn't a fluke and did it with ease, almost sprinting on the return leg - So is the Worksop Half Marathon and option in October - well yes if my body holds out.
