Note to Self: NEVER AGAIN



Recommended Posts

Tonight I did something very stupid! I made a Ham dinner with roasted vegetables. Which I ate my 3 oz portion and as many veggies as I could manage. After cleaning up My mom kept saying for weeks we never have drinks any more. So I made Pina Coladas. FROZEN I don't know if it was the alcohol, or the frozen part. Or the dinner and drink combo. Which I thought I waited long enough. But I was in agony, I couldn't be still the pain was so darn bad. My surgery was 6/30/16.

I went into my shower and found some relief in the hot Water. My heart was racing and my back felt like I was stabbed, I couldn't breath. So shower felt better. My husband was with me at that point. So I got him to plug in a heating pad and I laid down with the pad on my tummy with a pillow on top of it. IT WORKED THANK GOD! Spasms we're happening! Please learn from my stupid mistake.

P.S. I have had drinks before but never had this happen. Awful

That sounds like dumping syndrome to me. Pina colada (whether mix or from scratch) has tons of sugar. Dumping syndrome takes many forms, but the lack of sweating and drooling is not uncommon.

The other day I ate a tiny corner off of a fruit Slice (those jelly like/sugary candy). I didn't dump but felt pain for about 30 minutes after under my ribs. So no more pure sugar for me. learned my lesson!

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      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.
