I had a Nutrition appt today..

Today I had my first post op nutrition appt.Well surprise surprise I am not getting in enough protein.. Well DUHH.. I havent been having my shakes. The first time I tried I got so gassy I could only get in a few sips. But she told me I could add strawberries today. So the second I got home I had me a protein shake. So today I got in about 30g I am still 30g short but I am working at it.. She also told me on Thursday I can start my soft food diet. YiPpEe.. Although I am a jerk and decided to move myself up today. I had Shepard's Pie for dinner. I only ate the potatoes and ground beef. No corn. Oh I also added beef gravy. it was pretty good. So far so good. But usually it takes a little while before it hurts. Ill be able to tell if I am in pain tonight. So far I have only dry heaved once and it was over quick. Thank god because it was the day after I got home from surgery and it hurt like a mother trucker.

I also had my first post op surgeon appt yesterday. Everything went ok. He gave me a little more pain med to help me get comfy to be able to sleep and also for these back pains I keep getting. I think it might be gas but I'm not to sure. Everyday seems to be a better day but then I have a bad day and I cry and wish I would have never done this. I have felt that way a couple times since surgery. When I sit and think I never even really truly thought this whole thing through. But I wont get into that now. Thats a whole other blog entry. I'll get into that one of these days..

I am so excited I have 1 FOLLOWER.. YiPpPee. Thank you .. I will try to keep my boring life fun and entertaining for you.. lol

  1. How long has it been since your surgery? I'm concerned about gettting in enough protein and fluid immediately post-op. Have you tried Gas-X? Not sure if it works, but I saw it in some of the literature from my weight loss clinic. Good luck. I'm right behind you and hoping to get my date later today. :-D
