First full day home

on 5/10/13 8:18 am
Today is my first full day home. I feel like I have no energy at all. All I want to do is sleep. I think it is because I didn't sleep much in the hospital. I am forcing myself to at least walk up and down the hallway when I get up to use the bathroom. I got my protien in for the day. Still working on the rest of the fluids. Still have one more round of vitamins to take today. I know things will get better as time goes on.

I came home on Wed so today was my second day. Don't try to push yourself too much, keep taking your pain pills and try to get as much water and protein in as you can but don't pu**** Keep moving and doing your breathing exercises. You don't want to end up sick with pneumonia. Keep up the good work :)

Other than the fact that you need to make sure you are getting your water and protein, I think it's okay to sleep the day(s) away at first. If you don't have much gas pain right now then walking can wait until you are refreshed. You just had major surgery so give yourself a little break and sleep when you want to.
