I can't believe it! Of course I'm going to be the only one who is banded and hungry. :lol::blink: Just had some broth and a popsicle, and that worked for about 20 minutes, and now my stomach is growling.

Oh my. This is going to be interesting.

Smokey! You are so right. I'm amazed that Texasmama got anything at all. I was like you so...some 36 hours before anything to eat or drink. In hour 32, the barium...OMG, THE BARIUM! I pictured some chalky stuff. This was REPULSIVE. I will never forget looking the other three banders that more... all lined up in wheelchairs, waiting for barium...then the look of nauseaa on each of our faces afterwards. I had to get anti nausea meds in my IV when I got back to my room...it was that repulsive.

I wanna go back and be Texasmama...she was typing a few hours after surgery! Texasmama, you don't worry! You will do fine! You still feeling as good as you were? All kidding aside, maybe the growlies are from the surgery and you are confusing them with hunger. Maybe the head hunger is working on you?

I'm NOT WORTHY! I was a hot mess for three days. My stomach right now looks like Mike Tyson used it as a punching bag.

LOL@ both of you!!! :lol: I seem to have a quick recovery time from the anesthesia. I was like this for my past three surgeries (two cerclages and a gallbladder removal). I am in some pain still, and swollen, but I am working on trying to get up and moving.

I don't really have any desire to eat per se, I mean, I can't see me eating a hamburger or anything. I just wish I could have something more substantial like yogurt or oatmeal. Alas, I will have to wait.

I think that the "stomach growling" I am feeling is actually intestinal sounds and I am getting them confused. It's hard to tell when your entire abdomen is sore!

The only advice I have for anyone is don't let any time lapse between doses of pain meds, if you're supposed to take your meds every 4-6 hours, don't wait 7 or 8.

I am hoping I won't need the Lortab after the weekend and will be on straight Motrin or Tylenol or combination.

Taking a nap now. Will chat later!! :P
