just got home from surgery on tuesday



Recommended Posts

I had no pain med since tuesday am. I had a lot of nausea probably due to morphine and anesthesia. Getting two oz Protein in every two hours. 4.5 oz liquids on the odd hours. Left side feels like bad pulled muscle. Walking as much as i can. also fighting diahrea and bad breath. I feel better each day. B3lching alot and some passed gas .

So glad to hear that you are doing well and are home. That bad pain on the right side finally went away for me 4 days post op. Then it is a full time job just getting in all the Protein and liquids. Please drink as much as possible. It was very hard for me but now I am 2 weeks out and can drink almost like I did before surgery. Protein is another thing for me. Having a hard time with that. I barely get 300 calories a day and a little shy of 60 protein. Getting in over 48 oz of Water. On the plus side I am down 29 lbs since pre-op diet.

You will do just great. You are a male and that is another thing on your side. Best of luck.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
