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.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
