Surgery Went Well!
Friday, October 18, 2013
I went in for surgery on Tuesday at 11am and was released from the hospital on Wednesday at 1:30pm. I did everything they said. I walked, walked, walked and used the spirometer.
It was very hard to get food in on Thursday. I could only eat a couple of bites of scrambled egg mixed with cheese and lowfat mayo. Then around dinner I tried cottage cheese.
I did try popsicles and Ensure but they were way to sweet for me.
Thursday night I did have a emotional incident. I cried for about 15 minutes. Tired, hormonal, relieved. I told everyone I was not in pain but I just had to cry. After I settled down, I slept for 6 hours!
I woke up today feeling very good!
Today I had the scrambled egg again with some unflavored protein powder added. Only a couple of bites. Lunch time I at 1/2 cup of greek yogurt with protein powder added. I got the entire 1/2 cup down!
Crystal Light Peach tea is tasting really good also. I cm increasing my liquid intake.
I cannot believe I am not hungry! I know I am still swollen and a hunger sensation will come back eventually but it is such a great thing not thinking about eating and being hungry every second of the day!
