OH I was same way drinking lots of liquids and up/down out of bed and I had a horrible time getting out of bed and I tried the rolling on side/pulling legs to the floor first and lifting with that arm under me. It still hurt no matter what, but it did finally pass. My surgery was Monday 3/29. I am finally doing much better and have been off pain meds almost 24 hours. I am just having a hard time feeling satisfied. I'm not really hungry, just trying to adapt to our new lifestyle and liquid diet. I'm not having any problems getting protein down anymore so hopefully that satisfied feeling will subside,whatever it is.
Glad you are doing bettter.
