November 2 2007 ~~Im home from my surgery.... everything went very well, not much pain, mostly just my throat from the anesthesia. Im sipping chicken broth, and have had water, sf jello and thats about it. I got to UCLA med at 4 am, a little early, and ready for my 5 am appt. I was taken in to the prep area at about 5:30 am and was there til almost 7 am, The rest of the day I dont remember much of, I woke briefly in my hospital room and slept most of the afternoon, and around 8:30 pm, they told me to get up and walk, I had trouble with dizziness and one horrible headache! The next day was halloween and a quiet day, between walking and sleeping, I had water and walked. The first IV pole I had was the hardest thing to walk with... it just refused to roll smoothly, and one of my terrific nurses, LaTanya found me a smooth roller ... I was happy!
I came home Thursday evening and today is friday, Im just resting, Im hungry and I'd love a protein shake, but they say clear liquids til tomorrow! OK I'll behave.
I dont know how to add the little ticker that counts my weight down but, I was 254 entering the hospital and 262 when I left, Im stayin off the scales til monday and then I'll enter weight!
Im feeling good, as soon as I had protein shakes added in my diet.. I didnt feel hungry, Ive had creamy soups since saturday and everything has gone down good! I weighed 249 tonight yayyyy! Im surprised how well Im feeling, no real pain, and no trouble eatting anything... full liquids still. On day 15, I can have soft foods and Im sure counting the days til then
