Hey guys how's everyone from October surgery doing?

I'm going well actually 8 days post op besides major pain first few days I'm adjusting to my new life and new stomach which likes to rumble randomly lol

Still got my bandages over the incisions

I'm just on Protein Shakes and Water and sugar free cordial for now but will be nice to get something with texture soon.

Surgeon said minimum 2 weeks liquids then I'll be trying different things like hummus and yoghurt or puree veggies :)

I'm drinking plenty of water and shakes with ease just take my time.

one thing I have noticed Is water fills my bladder much quicker going to the toilet often.lol

I understand may still have gas and Fluid from surgery inside and it will take time to empty..

I'll be tracking my intake and my weight loss again now I'm home :D

I gained a lot of Water weight while in the hospital, my belly was as tight as a drum. I did notice the bladder thing also, but after I got rid of the water weight it stopped.

I had my surgery 10/24 and am doing pretty well! I had the same thing with the bladder, but it seems to have evened itself out now, so hopefully it will for you too!

I am on pureed foods already, but I've been having problems with my heart rate elevating, so I've been advised to stick mostly with fluids, which I have.

It's been a pretty easy journey so far, but I've slowed down in weight loss now. It was fun watching the first 11 pounds just slide off though!

      Just cleaned out my fridge of old/unwanted food. Next is cabinets and pantry!

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
