I'm alive...and sleeved

it was a hell night. I dry heaved and that was terrifying. I'm having passing waves of remorse, but honestly, there's no going back... Just forward. I'm in medium pain... But all in all ok. Walking hasn't paid off yes, nothing has passed north or south. I wasn't allowed anything, no water or ice chips. Maybe when that's allowed it will get better...

Hang in there - this will pass. Ask for some anti-nausea med's. Those will help a lot. also, be nice to yourself during this phase. You just had major surgery. Relax, keep your feet up and if you're watching TV keep the remote handy. Food commercials are brutal.
You can't take care of them, if you don't take care of you!!

Congrats!! My PO day 1 was rough but it did get better. Laying on my left helped pass gas easier. And sugar free Popsicles have been my lifesaver. I'm 3 weeks+ out and still eat a ton.
