I am feeling really good. It has been 10 days since my surgery, and I feel like I am getting back to myself. There is still some pain (feels like I am being stung by a bee) on my right side, but upon research, my mom found that is the spot where the majority of the surgery took place. It would stand to reason that spot is still sore. I underwent major surgery. While I don't have the large incisions that a major surgery carries, that doesn't mean my procedure wasn't a big thing. When you think about it, I was essentially gutted.
I only take my pain meds at night. I don't really need them for pain, but they do help me sleep. Since I am still restricted to sleeping on my back, it helps.
I finally went out of the house today. It has been the first time I have been in a car since I came home from the hospital. We went to Walmart. I know, that is lame, but I was really excited to go.
I have finally had it with the Carnation Instant Breakfast... I just can't drink it anymore. I know that is what my RD wants, but I just can't. I am going to the Sports Nutrition store tomorrow and buying a new protein powder. I gave it an honest effort, and I just can't do it. They say once I reach stage III of my diet, they don't want me taking any supplements, but I still think I am going to need to.
When I go back to meet with my RD she wants me to bring a three day food log so she can calculate how much protein I am eating. I really wish she wouldn't treat me like I am stupid. I have a pretty good knowledge of nutrition. I am also very proficient at tracking food... calories, carbs and protein. I understand that a lot of people go into this without the knowledge that I have, but, once she knows I posses it, why treat me like I am stupid?
I think that is all for now
