October 27th 1 month post op
Oct 27, 2010
This past month has been a very interesting ride. First of all my daughter informed me the day of surgery she was getting married on November 6th 2010. Then, I went back into the hospital with an infection called Cellulitis. I finally talked the doctors into allowing me to go home and come back every day for IV antibiotic. We think we’re done with the antibiotic but we’re doing blood work for a while to make sure.
I’m doing well on the diet. I am having trouble with some of the proteins and getting in enough water. I have been taking Pro Slam protein shots and they seam to help. I just think the fluid thing is so hard. If I’m not thinking about fluid and meals all the time, I forget about it. Then I’m in trouble. So forget about weddings, cleaning, laundry, or shopping if it does not fit into the schedule of fluids and meals.
Even with everything that is going on, I would do the surgery over again. I have lost 32lbs since the surgery and I’m feeling much better. I’m not even thinking about shopping for a dress for the wedding until November 3rd.
