14 days post op & COVID positive



Recommended Posts

I had a feeling this would happen!

Somehow made it the entire pandemic without covid and tested positive while in recovery from surgery.

I had no idea I had it the first 2 days bc I thought i was dealing with symptoms of dehydration and struggling with hitting my Protein goals for a couple days.

Turns out it’s covid. anybody gone through the same? have any tips on getting through this when you already feel a bit tired and weak?

I’ve already called my doctor and got advised on which medicines/relief I may take that won’t interfere with my post-op medicine regime

Boy talk about bad timing. Did you talk to your family doctor or just your surgeon? I ask cause they have a medicine now that lessens the severity of covid if you take it early enough. It’s mostly for people who are in the high risk category but I wonder if you would qualify because you are recovering from surgery as well as being overweight. Your doctor may not think it’s necessary but you may want to ask. I THINK they said you have five days to start it or it doesn’t help.

I feel for you. sleep and do the smallest amount you can get away with. I have just received my Autumn Covid booster and oh boy is my arm on fire, it sure is working with my immune system.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
