- HEALTH TRACKER
For all of you who are newly post opt or getting ready for surgery I have to say I feel so much better than I thought. I definitely have soreness at the lap sights, but after everything I read on these boards, I was prepared for the worst and it really has not been so bad.
One bit of advice if your date is coming up is when talking to your anesthesiologist is to be prepared for nausea and be proactive. My Dr gave me a patch to wear behind my ear and anti nausea medicine as soon as I came out and I never got that horrible nausea feeling.
I just keep sipping all day long and luckily I seem to be ok with protein shakes. Will start vitamins tomorrow. So I will keep my fingers crossed that I tolerate those ok.
One questions is my Dr sent me home with oxi-codiene for pain, I made the mistake of crushing the pill and that was horrible but I was afraid of swallowing the pill, has anyone tried swallowing any pills yet?
How are other newbies doing so far?
I was shocked that after 3 days with hardly no food I gained 4 lb's in the hospital, is this common?
