    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    It's been about 2 months since I went MIA

    My surgery for my ileostomy was on July 10th, I had a few complications and it took longer than expected but I am doing good.

    I still have a lot of my back/neck issues but with trigger point injection I have been okay.

    My lung disease is getting worse So I am now using a percussion vest/machine to help with my lungs, I do walk daily as that is all I can do for exercise.

    My pelvic floor dysfunction is still present the surgery did not correct that - but at least my small intestines work and I do not have any more bowel problems that surgery was a success.

    Anyway just thought I'd stop bye and say hi, Deb.
