Home today, it's been busy. No pain meds at all today, there are twinges but nothing too serious. Been dealing with drain management and Lovenox injections. Not a big deal, but a nuisance I wasn't expecting. Kids did actually did some work around the house, so that's a bonus. Finding it tough to get enough Water and Protein in, but doing my best.

So glad to hear ur healing well. My fist week or so was kinda rough, and I only had the intestinal portion done. I element now though that the body does adapt to all the changes over time, so things do seem to kinda magically get better. Keep up the good work!

Concentrate on the fluids. They're most important. The Protein can wait.

Today was my first post-op weight check. I gained two pounds. I was braced for that: edema, Fluid retention, etc. but I am looking forward to making progress again.

You're absolutely right. Unfortunately, it isn't uncommon once you're out of the hospital.

Swelling is down, drain has nearly stopped. Took advantage of feeling better to get a solid nap. :) Also did better with intake today.

Skipped a day, because nothing new happened on Thursday. Today had a couple of milestones: the drain was removed, which was an unusual experience. Also hit 50 total pounds lost, which is 25% of my primary goal.

Two mile walk today. Could not have done that three months ago.

Not much changing except I am very tired of Protein shakes and the like. They were ok when I could chug them down, but sipping on them for hours is really wearing on me. Only a few more days to soft foods, so I'll deal with it. Weigh-in was 369 for a net loss of 56 lbs. It is encouraging to see that middle digit change. :)

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.
