3 Weeks Post Op
Tuesday, November 30, 2010
I can't believe that it's been 3 weeks already! The surgery went well. Had a hard time controlling the pain but I survived! Let me tell you, it wasn't an easy thing to go through. Am I glad I did it? Well...let me just say that I'm waiting for the day that I can say YES!
I'm getting better and stronger as the days go by but I'm dealing with an injured back (from the car accident) which makes things harder all around. I'm not allowed to bend, twist, or lift anything heavier than 5 lbs. Now throw in the bad back and you can only imagine how I'm doing. I've been working with PT and OT for the past 2 weeks which helps.
Spent 2 weeks on clear liquids and 1 week on pureed foods. I have 1 more week on pureed foods and then I can move onto soft foods. Taking things 1 day at a time.
When I went in for my 10 day post op appointment I found out that I had already lost 8lbs so that was a good thing. Healing is going slow which is due to me being diabetic but they are please at how things are looking. I go back again on Dec 17th for my next check up.
Until next time.....take care and thanks for reading!
