Sounds like you are doing great! Like you, I was pretty swollen and weighed more after surgery. I think it was about 4 days and then BOOM it just went away. Hopefully you experience the same.

also, after about 7 days I was able to side sleep...Now...rolling back over and getting out of the bed was uh...interesting...I just went slow. 11 days out, very minimal discomfort when I roll over.

keep it up, your doing fantastic!

Just an update, I am quite amazed I have not experienced any nausea at all. It does take me almost 45 minutes to finish one Premier Protein drink. I’m not sure if I’m still holding fluids or not. I did weigh myself today (almost 7 days post op) and from the day before surgery, I’ve only lost 3 lbs which is very discouraging.
I am starting to get my energy back and actually grocery shopped today.
I am able to sleep on my stomach now which is a blessing. My stomach is still sore but not as bad as it first was. I still have some gas pain but that is going away. I started taking a chewable probiotic and I’ve been able to use the bathroom finally!
