Ended up getting discharged a little after 10am yesterday. I got home and was completely exhausted. Walked a couple of times, but slept the majority of the time until early this morning.

So now trying to figure out what I still like. Everything sweet flavored tastes like salt -- orange Jello, flavored greek yogurt -- can't really stand the taste. So working on a plain vanilla shake and hot tea this morning.

Haven't used any pain meds at all, but was having some burning reflux pain through the night. Hoping for improvements throughout the day as I increase intake.

I'm on proton for the next 3 months for potential reflux. I also bought a pillow backrest so I can sit up a little higher in bed, because I've heard that helps. I was so tired that I didn't even try a Protein Shake yesterday. I'm going to try today, though. I did try Powerade Zero yesterday and it was waaaaay too sweet. I even tried mixing it with Water and it still was overly sweet.

Day 3 post-op and finally feeling more human. Started on a PPI yesterday that's helped a lot with the heartburn. Was able to get my morning Protein Shake down without issues (11 oz in 1.75 hours). Extended my walk this morning without issue. And best of all ... I was able to take a shower ... felt fantastic.

EDIT ... and officially reached the 200's for the first time in a while ... weight at surgery 305.
