My husband brought me home from my mother-in-laws today, I have mixed feelings, and I enjoyed her company but missed my kids and hubby. My surgery went off without a hitch and they released me on the Friday after my surgery. The nurses at the hospital treated me really well and thank god for the morphine pump. I have been off my liquid pain meds since Sunday. I am getting in all my water but am working on the protein, the protein powders so fare have been pretty discussing. The ones that I can tolerate are the cappuccino ones. I am really looking forward to the pureed foods which I can have as of the 14th, My follow Dr. appointment is Thursday the 10th. I hope they take the stitches out and don't make me wear the binder anymore. I am definitely not a corset girl.
My dr appointment went well yesterday, I am 17 pounds down from pre surgery weight (doesn't include the water weight gained in hospital). I'm feeling pretty good, trying to get my protein in and walking in. Today is the first day I am spending alone.
All the stir strips came off last night, it is a little red and bumpy in some places but all in all it looks pretty good, its pretty thin and about 8 inches long. Today I came out of the bathroom to find a shirt to put on, my husband couldn't even look at me uncovered that hurt. If he can't look at it, how is going to react to when we can be intimate again?
One more day until I start back to work and soft foods. Yea! about the food, mixed feelings about work. I is hard to believe that I haven't had really food in over a month. It is hard to believe that my knees and back feel better with just this little weight loss.
