2 Weeks today!
May 17, 2010Well, I am two week out today from surgery and about 18 pounds down. I feel really good. I get an occasional pain in my left side, but the nurse says that it is likely nerves healing and nothing to worry about.
The first week was tough. There were a couple of times I said to myself "What have I done?"
Now I am feeling great, eating my 2 oz. meals 3 times a day and trying to get as much protein in as possible. my best so far is 54 grams in a day.
I have also been telling friends as I run into them or talk to them. I was surprised that a couple of family members were upset even hurt that I didn't tell them before the surgery. That was a litle hard to deal with but I wanted this experience to be about me. I didn't want a lot of fuss. I guess I was also a little embarrased that this is the only way I felt I could get some control back which is hard to explain to people.
I am excited to see where the next few weeks, months, years will take me1
