Yes! Thanks for asking. I definitely passed the kidney stone 2 weeks post-op and pulled a muscle during the agony. Two weeks later the muscle was healed and I had no more signs of kidney issues. Wahoo! I'm trying to keep up on liquids as much as possible.
I ended up in the hospital with a stone a couple weeks ago. It was one they saw on my CT when I had my last one in May. Thankfully the other small stones have all been flushed out. Hopefully keeping the fluids up will keep them cleared out.

Hey surgery twin! My Dr only does a special diet for the first 3 weeks. I've been able to eat whatever I can tolerate for about a month. That doesn't mean candy and chips. It has to be healthy and Protein first. I had a couple green grapes today and they were fantastic. Haven't tried many raw veggies yet.

Yippee!!! I’m so excited for you. I can’t wait to see you on the post side of things. Mine was a long time coming. 9 years getting here. So I know how you feel. I’m praying for you all the way.

Awesome I have not seen anyone other than one other who had surgery on my day. Yay!

My nutritionist says my program is ultra conservative compared to most. So I asked about absolutely no no’s.

So I have been exploring things on my own little by little. Like I added canned veggies and thin sliced deli meat.

I have noticed some strange things though. Like I could do scrambled eggs just fine on the third week but now I cannot tolerate them.

And I also noticed my inability to tolerate sweet as gotten stronger. First week I could at least tolerate Powerade but now I cannot stand it that it’s too sweet.

Just a lot of odd things like that.

Ugh. I am SO sorry you had one too! They are no fun and seriously worse than labor pains. Poor thing. So glad to hear it's passed and the others have flushed out too. Always a good reminder to keep on drinking our fluids.

Thank you New Challenge! It’s a journey but glad to know I’m pursuing the right foods as well. I travel for a living so eating out is a challenge but at least my hunger is still non existent.
