Day 3

For some reason I feel a little worse today than I did yesterday. Maybe it's because I haven't taken any pain medicine. Maybe it's because I was up every effing 30 minutes to go pee last night. Maybe it's just because I am being a whiny butt baby today.

I am not having any trouble tolerating liquids, but I know I am not taking in enough. I just can't deal with the protein powders...they are all nasty to me. I am only taking in about 500 calories...at most. I will try to do better today. My doctor doesn't require a long liquid diet...he said I can move to puree/mushies today if I feel like it. I'm not sure I feel like it though.

For the good news (and don't be a hater)...I have had no gas pains what so ever. I also think my incisions look pretty damn good. Here is a pic...sorry it's a little blurry.

Glad you're doing so well. I didn't worry too much about protien drinks, I just made sure I was hydrated. Trust me, you'll be hungry soon enough, enjoy it while you can! Hope you continue to feel better!

Glad you have no gas pain. That was the worst part. Majorly jealous of your incisions. 4 months out mine still look awful, especially the port one!!!

Allow yourself a whiny day!! It is a big procedure :)

I did not have gas pain either. I have always heard the the third day after surgery is the worst and I do not know why.

Your scars look great!

Sip and Sip and you must do the protein!

Your incisions look fabulous! Day 3 is always the hardest whether its surgery or a car accident. Have you tried any of the p remade protein drinks? I lived off of EAS myoplex vanilla and chocolate shakes. Just an idea...

It really sounds like things are going good. And you know, I've always heard with any surgery that the 3rd stay is the hardest.

Unjury unflavored protein powder - mix with water and 1 package of Crystal Light on the go - VERY tolerable!!

Beth said...

Wow looks like you are doing great! So glad to hear, and each day will get better. I'm jealous of your scars, a little over a month out and I still have Frankenbelly as I like to call it.

I couldn't deal with the protein stuff either. Instead, I put low fat Fage yofurt and skim milk in a blender with a little mango. It was high in protein, very liquidy and super tasty. Glad you are feeling OK.

There are some good protein shake recipes on Eggface's blog, I've actually been trying some of them out! :) You should look into them... great ways to get protein and they're tasty.
