I am so glad to hear that you're doing much better, but it sounds like you're still struggling a bit. I had appendix removal and a hernia repair also, so you're story really resonated with me. I'm sure that you're going to get stronger and stronger with each day, and I certainly hope that your eating issues resolve themselves sooner rather than later.
Take care, and keep me posted!
Good evening apw0,
Yes, I am doing much better. Thank you for asking. Within the last week or two my energy level is coming back. Trial and error with food, supplements, shakes. Blood pressure, potassium have been really low and go back in for re-check early next week.
I am down 32 lbs since surgery date 12/19/2017.
My second follow up with surgeon will be the first week of March.
I was just reading your post, and I was wondering how you were doing. I certainly hope that all of your issues have been resolved, and you're doing amazing!
I take several meds for depression and anxiety. I do think some make appetite more challenging. The worst med ( for me) is called Zopiclone, a sleep aid. It gives me the munchies! I hope you are ok. 50 pound gain is not the end of the story. You can get things moving again. You will, you will get better just like I will and anyone who is struggling. GOOD LUCK! -Michelle
Nice. Congrats. Limited experience early on with the main board. I read interesting things there but didn't think about posting too much not because I saw any issues I just thought most of the questions I had were DS specific.
