How is everyone doing this morning? I had my sleeve surgery on Monday. Thought I would give an update this morning. First is I can only sleep about 6.5 hours in the bed. (6.5 hours is heaven for me) It just becomes uncomfortable but with little pain. I have been fortunate to not need any pain medicine at all. I have walked every time I even thought I felt a pain possibly coming on so everything you read about walking is so true. I have not been hungry at all. Not even a little bit. Yesterday, I was able to get in 45 grams of Protein and 48 ounces of liquid and it was a struggle. Later last night around 9pm, I had chicken broth (not much protein) but it was different than "protein" shake so it tasted delicious to me. I am sharing my story because so many others before me shared theirs and it helped me have the courage to go through with the surgery. For the second morning in a row, I have started this day with Gatorade 2. It seems like a good base before diving into protein and liquid (even though it is a liquid). No medical reason so maybe its just better to say, I like the soothing taste in the morning, Best advice so far is follow exactly what your dr/dietician gave you as your plan. 2nd best advice is baby yourself because how the house looks or what you look like doesn't matter. This was major surgery so treat it as such. Yesterday, I reported a major face rash which did begin to go down my arms. The dr isn't 100% sure but I either am allergic to the antibiotic they gave me while in the hospital OR it could be the one shot they gave me as blood thinner. Either way, the steroids the dr called in yesterday have already cleared it up. Again, an example of how important it is to communicate with your dr with any questions. Wishing you all a great happy healing day! How is everyone else doing from this weeks surgery?
