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!

    am so glad to hear things went well for you!

    The crying thing is totally normal. Your emotions will be a wreck for a while. It will go back to normal.

    Best of luck!
