Part 4: Food. Finally!

Ahhh food.  After passing the leak test, food & water were all I could think of.

I was so excited to finally get something in my mouth after going so long without water.

My nurse brought me a small cup of jello, a 20 oz bottle of water, and a Bluebell Popsicle.

After working hard ALL DAY LONG, I managed to eat about 1/4 of the popsicle and all of the water.  Never touched the green jello.

Drinking too fast caused waves of nausea to roll over me.  Several times I started salivating in my mouth and my stomach would churn.  I'd grab a bucket and spit in it.....and then it would pass.

But let me be clear---I was not drinking fast.  I was just barely sipping.  Like for instance, my nurse brought me a teaspoon of liquid pain medicine.  I sipped the the teaspoon amount very slowly and spent about FIVE MINUTES swallowing it.  And that was too fast.  I made myself sick.

My nurse told me I couldn't leave the hospital until I stopped getting nauseated.


  1. You should e-mail Stacey (Time to Get Real) or maybe she has her post-op experience up on her blog, she's another sleever. I bet she'd have some great advice or suggestions for you at this stage in the game. :)

  2. Ahhh, I wish things were going just a smidge better for you. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day!

  3. My doc gave me some meds for the nausea...I only needed them once when I got home. When are you getting out of hosp?
