Okay, well, I went to the doctor yesterday. The nurse came in to remove the sutures. Luckily, I am someone who heals well and quickly. I have 5 puncture wounds, which have closed and there is no drainage. Part of the healing process is the itching, so that I will just have to deal with for a while. It is a good, thing, a sign that I am healing.

 

I was weighed, my weight when I came home on 10/16 was 275, yesterday at the MD office I was 257. I should be really happy about that, of course, but my crazy mind tells me I should have lost 25 pounds! I am going to have to get my head together with that. I mean 18 pounds in 8 days is awesome! But, my brain tells me it is not that great. One thing I have not been doing, which I need to start is to drink the 64 oz of water and step up my excercise. I love to walk, but I am not pushing myself as hard, but I do think I needed at least some time to heal and rest.

 

Another thing that has started this week are hunger pangs! :tt2: I did not think I would experience them quite so soon. I will have to look on the forum to see if anyone else has them. I am going to start eating mushies on 11/04, which I cannot wait for!

I also have been dreaming about food, it is so weird. I dream I have eaten a ginormous meal and I wake up feeling so guilty, only to realize it was a dream! :confused:

 

So, there are several things I need to work on. I am definately going to go to the local support group on Monday and find out some more information.

I am itchy too...any suggestions? I have a bad habit of scratching until I bleed when I have bug bites...I definitely don't want to do that now!

I was hungry today for the first time. I just sipped on something almost all day. I also added back in the SF pudding which helped me feel full.

Eighteen pounds is awesome!

I'm going through the same thing with the itching, especially when I'm trying to sleep at night, what i have been doing is putting vaseline around the outside of the incision which I found to ease the itching.
