    Worried about taking care of baby post op

    My son is three and thankfully can get in and out of the tub and bed on his own. My husband stayed home 2 weeks with me thank God for that. I still am not allowed to lift more than 10 pounds at 3 weeks out. I don't think I could lift him now but he is almost 50 pounds so that's a lot of kid to be picking up lol.

    Refried beans and cheese

    I add a drop or two of hot sauce so it's not but adds a little flavor. After about 4 small bites I feel like I've ate a huge thanksgiving dinner so I've been stopping at three. And I add fat free cheese.

    My doctor said whenever I felt up to it so my surgery was on a Monday, got home late Wednesday night had sex Friday morning. It wasn't painful you just have to be extra careful. I did find that we're more active since my surgery.
  4. My doctor said "Carbonation will ruin this surgery" so I haven't had any but I'm only a few weeks out. We'll see how I feel in a year or so I hope I stay strong.

    6 days post op... no fun

    I was in really bad shape at first and wanted to cry but I didn't because I was worried id puke again! I held my husband and said "oh God why did I do this to myself!" I feel better now outside of pain. It's one of those things you'll probably enjoy it eventually you just have to get over this big hump! The only thing I can recommend is what I did which was sucking on ice and taking all of my nausea meds whether I needed them at the time or not. Good luck

    That's true I remember telling my husband a few weeks before surgery "I shouldn't be in too much pain I'll probably be back to my old self in no time" I ended up being super sick and in pain. Not intolerable pain so I won't complain! I can't wait for next year at this time!! Thank you everyone for your responses.

    Awesome! I actually just had mine on Monday. So not too long before you'll have yours! I've lost 12 pounds this week I'm VERY excited about that!!

    You're already this far so you'll do great! The month heading up to surgery goes slow at first then next thing you know you're putting on your gown and fighting back the tears!!

    It's such a scary step! I'm really hoping we all get where we need to be. I was so scared the night before and so upset when I woke up, now I'm just determined.

    Mine gets a little better each day thankfully. The big thing for me is either standing or if I try to roll over at night and it "hangs" (that's what it feels like) I'll be so glad to lay on my sides without problems!

    Well the gas-x strips helped with a full feeling I was having, thank God! But the side pain was still there. The binder helped then I got a burning rib pain and if anything touched it I was miserable. So now the rib pain is gone and I only have to apply pressure when I'm standing. thank you all for all your help! I'm actually feeling a lot better. I never thought last Monday at this time that I'd be feeling so well now!

    Awesome!!! I'm so glad you're approved!

    Good luck! Well everything went well during the surgery. I woke up in a lot of pain and sick but it didn't last long. By Tuesday evening I quit getting sick and now the main pain I have is my back since I can't roll around as I wish at night. I hope everyone gets their approvals and surgeries and does well! I had problem after problem with getting this surgery approved I was ready to throw in the towel but overall I'm happy it's done and I'm in control of my progress now
