Well here I am 3 weeks post op. My main incision got infected. Bad infected like pus and stuff that the Dr. had to suction out. I now have a hole in me I have to have packed 2 times a day. My mom and husband have been helping me with that. I am also on 2 antibiotics. The antibiotics seem to make me super sick to my stomach. Nothing tastes good but pineapple yogurt. I have an appt with my Surgeon tomorrow.  Hopefully he does somethinhg about this hole and moves me to the next food stage. I am so ready for some more options.
Getting my liquids in has been a challenge  as even plain water tastes bad.
on the good side, I have lost 40 pounds. I wish I  could see it.
