    I couldn't pee til hours after surgery but the next day I was going more normal, just with a bit of discomfort from the cath. that I had in during surgery. I'm 2 day post op and my left side is killing me but it's definitely still some gas stuck in there and also (tmi) I haven't had a bowel movement so I'm assuming that all plays a part in this discomfort. I havent had one either. I've been assuming that mine is gas pain too.

    How long did it take everyone to pee after surgery? I pee'd once right after surgery but now I'm having a hard time peeing. Dehydration maybe? I've managed 9 oz of water since 12. I know I need more but ugh. And the left side of my body hurts so bad but honestly, this wasn't near as scary as I thought it would be.

    Good luck today!!!! Prayers for a speedy recovery! Thank you honey. Things went good. I'm in a lot of pain from the gas but other than that I'm doing good. I've attempted to walk the halls twice so far because I've been sleeping lol.

    My Hospital Bag..??

    So surgery is in 30 hours and I just got most of my bag packed and ready to go. I have these things: *CPap *chapstick *deodorant *travel sized toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, my biotene, and soap) *eye mask, small Dove lotion tin *A change of panties *hairbrush and pony tail holders I plan on leaving in the clothes I come in with. All in all, i have a small Supernatural backpack that I've fit everything in surprisingly lol except the CPAP lol some of the stuff I'm taking is the same stuff I leave in there anyway lol. I use it as a purse so it can serve 2 purposes. Anything I need, I need to fit in it. Way less **** to keep up with. Oh and my travel pillow will be waiting for me in the car anyone else got anything to add to this?

    To all of our family that recently had surgery, I hope you all are having good recoveries and to those with surgery coming up, you got this!!! All of the fear and doubt with dissipate. I'm finally to a point of acceptance of what is to come.

    Social Events and Eating Out: Advice?

    So I'm still preop until Wednesday but my aunt did this years ago. I noticed that certain places we ate at would have healthy options (grilled chicken and broccoli/green beans. Etc) she would pick something healthy and would indulge in conversations as she ate to keep from eating too fast or too much. Weddings could be a bit trickier though because I know that's an occasion where cake is a centerpiece. Omg btw Chik fil a has grilled chicken nugget meals that you can get veggies with. That's my fav thing lol
