i'm back

I'm hoooome!  Just flew in this morning.

Tired & sore, but otherwise feeling good.  My stomach hurts here and there but the waves of nausea are becoming more infrequent.

Thanks for all of your well wishes a few days ago.  I'll give more details later...but here's my brief thoughts so far.

I'm so amazed at how full I feel ALL the time.  Here's a rundown of what I've eaten after passing my "leak test" on Tuesday morning.

Tuesday:  20 oz of water.  It took me ALL DAY to sip a 20 oz bottle.
Wednesday:  8 oz of a protein drink plus 12 oz of water.  1 oz of French Onion Soup from Panera (just broth).
Thursday (today):  16 oz bottle of water, 8 oz protein drink x 2.

I still can't imagine being able to get in my surgeon's goal:  64 oz of water plus 2 protein drinks.  For the next three weeks, I'm supposed to stick to a liquid diet.  Prior to surgery, I couldn't imagine feeling full from liquids, but now I can't imagine eating anything solid ever again.  :)

My husband fixed grilled corn and fish for dinner with a side of sauteed onions & cabbage.  All of the produce is from our farm share.  That was the first thing all week I regretted not being able to taste.  It smelled delicious but there's no way my tummy could handle it, so I wasn't tempted.

I'll get to eat good food again eventually.  :)

  14. Glad you're home and doing well! You'll be able to fit a little more in as time goes by and your stomach stops swelling. I'm at a little over 4 weeks post op and am getting all my protein but struggling to get all my water/liquid in. But it will happen. Congrats to you!
