i can tell an improvement in the pain today - mainly in the process of getting up out of a chair. it still hurts quite a bit but it isn't unbearable. i didn't take any pain medicine until bedtime. i am having difficulty getting in all the liquids and protein - should have 64 oz liquid and 60g protein. the WLS did the math and if i drink 1 ounce every 20 minutes i should get in enough during my waking hours. i was trying to keep track but really came short. all i drank was isopure and i probably got in a total of 17 ounces. i did have 2 ounces of coffee - YUM! didn't have any problems w my pouch and the coffee. i think if i could do more of the continual sipsipsipping i would do better than having to wait and drink every 20 minutes.
having a lot of gurgling in my intestines and passing some gas but haven't had a bowel movement yet.
i slept around 4 hours in bed then moved to the recliner - will be glad when it is comfortable to sleep on my side.
welcome to my blog. i wanted to chronicle the days and months leading up to my weight loss surgery (WLS) to give insight to friends and family as to why i am doing this and at the same time to share information to others who are either in the process of having WLS or considering surgery.
