4 days post op

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Today I am feeling ok. I think the introduction of protein to my clear liquids has helped with my energy level. I don't feel as dizzy as I have in the past few days. Yesterday I had a protein shake and my pouch tolerated it well. Today I had a protein shake and also this afternoon tried some V8 juice and that went down well. Also I have had a couple of ounces of cranberry apple juice which I watered down 75%.

I walked (slowly) for a half hour today around the neighborhood. It was such a beautiful day I just wanted to feel the sun on my face.

My pain level is low. I haven't taken any pain killers today but I may later on as it seems to soothe my pouch somewhat. My staples around my incisions are starting to itch mildly. I am guessing that is just the healing process happening.

I am finally starting to lose some of the water weight I gained from the hospital. I was 5lbs heavier when I got home from surgery. I'm now back down again and have lost a couple pounds on top of the water weight. Looking forward to my weigh in on Monday. Also my 1 week post op appointment is on Tuesday.

    So glad that you are feeling/doing great! The first week is tough but it will get easier, I promise. I'm 19 days out from surgery and my biggest issue now is that the scabs over my incision are itching like crazy! LOL. Keep positive! Congrats!
