I’m a little behind! Post Op days 4,5,6,7

Jan 29, 2019

Dont worry, you havent missed much....other than my sleeping. Man, this is my biggest issue right now; I cant seem to get more than 4 hours in a row now. I need to get back on track for work. Sigh. 

We are still on clear liquids. Jell-O is my best friend. I slacked a little on my water on Sunday and i could feel it immediately. I grabbed some pedialite and focused on that for like an hour and felt better again. Please dont stop drinking water between meals. The dehydration headache sucks....dont be me! 

My energy is coming back! On day 7 I actually felt good enough to do some errands. It may seem silly, but I actually feel accomplished to say I completed, laundry (washing AND putting away.....who does that on the same day, really??), going to GNC and Sally Beauty, running into the mall for a quick purchase, cleaning the kitchen, all without feeling winded or needing a rest. So I’m looking forward to getting back to work (ew did i really say that?) and see if I can last all night. Ive already promised myself that I’m not going to push it. If i need to go home, so be it. 

SO other than that you haven’t missed much. I sip soup all day and nibble on jello, play lots of video games, rest and rest some more, shower and change my drain-hole bandage(still wigging me out). Please dont hesitate to ask any questions. I’ll call this a wrap until maybe I experience some new feelings when we make it to the next couple phases.

Much love to you all. For those considering the surgery, I hope i have offered you some clarity or calmed some fears. I’m here if you have any questions, I’ll do my best. This website has been a huge help to me and I hope for you too.

Have a great day!
