Surgery - Check

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Well I had my surgery three weeks ago and I feel great. I just have to get moving. I have no desire to work out. I am so tired of the same thing every night. I try and switch it up but it all tastes the same. I did have meatloaf tonight and it was AWESOME. Loved it. I don't know if I would do it again if I could have this willpower to stick to the list of food that I can eat but the thought of getting really sick is a motivator to not any that isn't on the list.

    My surgery was about 3 weeks ago, too. I'm not so much tired, matter of fact, I keep over doing things! My only problem is the left side of the abdomen where they did all the work! I keep getting sharp, shooting, pains there, that stick around for hours as a stinging ache. Especially when I move wrong. Now THAT tires me out!
    As for eating? I'm loving each new food I add! I found out this week I can handle tiny chunks of white meat chicken. Well, so long as it's not dried out. My daughter cooked me some, and it was a tiny bit dry, so I soaked it in chicken broth, and then I could eat it.

    Enjoy! Things are going to get better, for both of us! Take the chance to rest as much as you can, because when your energy levels catch up to you, there will be no stopping!

    This is the time to be extra kind to yourself!

    My lesson-learned is to do a bit less than I felt like doing. Whenever I got that burst of energy and went with it, I paid dearly for the next few days- exhausted, wrung out and had to build back up again

    Though I do not know about the diet you have to follow after surgery, I do know you need a bit of time to recuperate, and then you will feel like moving. I do not have faith in doctors to do surgery on me, but glad you are feeling good! Since you are eating less I'm sure you are losing weight even before you get to your exercise plan or walking.

    Honestly, you aren't going to feel like working out for a while. Your body has just been thought a major thing! You are going to be tired a lot quicker for a few more weeks. Don't worry though, in a while, you will be back to "normal"
