Had my one week check-up today.........removed that annoying drain -- I'm totally unencumbered now! Also was given the go-ahead to start full liquids. I'm a bit behind due to some surgeons' schedules and a mix-up. Living on 20 calories a day for a week was NOT fun, but I had my first protein shake this afternoon and I feel like a new girl!
I can't believe how easy this was. The hernia repair is a bit tender and twingy at times, but the sleeve portion was unbelievably pain-free. Yes, I know I'm very lucky and I wish for every pre-sleever to have the same easy time of it when they have surgery.
My only issue is the weight gain in the hospital -- but I know that's all fluids and will go away soon.
I'm just happy and wanted to share my good news!
