I'm happy for you! Mine was last Thursday and I'm already feeling much better. It's been a chore getting all my fluids down but it's a work in progress.

Hi Lisa. I’m laying here in bed after having surgery today. No pain breathing fine. Have swallow test tomorrow. Hope I pass with flying colors. Look forward to sipping on water! Keep up the good work and let’s keep in touch!

Thanks. Waiting to go down for my swallow study. Once that goes well I’ll be out on clears and then if tolerating will go home. Pain is it as bad as I thought. I feel really good.

Pain pumps are awesome! I was hospitalized and had abdominal surgery last May and they had me on Fentanyl through the pain pump. Every 8 minutes I was pressing the button. It was wonderful!

When I had my another abdominal surgery in August of last year, they had me on morphine through the pain pump. This did not work for me and I itched all over while taking it. They think I may be allergic to morphine. It was all better when they switched me to Dilaudid. Much stronger so I received it less often, but it worked with no itching. I stayed on that until I could take oral pain meds again.

Keep it up!

Thanks for the post. Yes I am a little itchy today. Have to tell nurse. I have Tylenol IV going which seems to be taking the edge off.

      Milestone date for me on this journey. I now weigh the same as the day i got out of boot camp in 1984 and is the least i have ever weighed as an adult.

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

        Drink a protein drink right after your workout, or get more fluids - dizziness can be from dehydration. Push liquids at all times. Good luck.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.
