Welcome to the losers bench , as far as post-op diet goes every hospital is different in its dietary rules, you really should call them to get more information and definitely get to the bottom of what procedure you had done, the discharge sheet is often copied and pasted so it’s easy for them to forget to change something (mine had someone else’s post op weight on it!) until you find out what post-op diet you are to follow just concentrate on keeping your fluids up, sip sip sip it’s a full time job at the beginning, try to get as much protein in as possible too: milk, protein powder shakes are great for protein but at this early stage don’t get too hung up on the protein. feeling tearful is perfectly natural, our bodies have been through a lot and the anaesthetic doesn’t help, I also think that maybe subconsciously we begin to mourn our old dietary lifestyle but that’s only my opinion. XxThanks for the encouraging messages above, sorry i was really busy and didnt get to go on here to reply.....
Well after the turn down for the op in may this year at last been done, thank you kindly to my lovely surgeon. went down for op as 2.30pm Friday, but didnt come out of recovery till 8.15pm i'm not sure why i never really got anyone to answer my questions as i never saw my surgeon yesterday (most probably her day off) i asked in recovery what i had done and she said sleeve ( i was going in for bypass) but depended on scar tissue from a previous op.
A doctor that did come round the ward yesterday he didnt say much but just before he went i said did i have the sleeve he just said yes, didnt look and any paperwork and went (i know they are busy) I should of said what procedure did i have in the end then he might of checked paperwork.
I was reading my discharge sheet and it has the medical procedures you had done and it says bypass.. so not sure what i had.
They said i was well enough to go home yesterday morning, I just had to wait for med's, asked a few times if they were ready. anyway long and short of it i was allowed how without any meds but someone has to go up today to collect them between 4-5 bit annoying as well over hour journey to get there but hey ho I am home....
After all said and done they are all very busy people do a amazing job..
so at the moment i am sipping slimfast, have some peppermint tea, water and oxo cube drink. (havent had it all but thats what choice i have) can i add squash in the water as long as sugar free. am is missing anything... I am crushing other tablets i have to take, did people do this for the 2-3 week's, i have all dissolvable stitches just wondering also when i can have a shower.... i'm sorry for all the questions but i cant find any of my info at the moment i think someone has put it away somewhere..
why did i feel so down this morning i has a proper meltdown just because hubby hadn't done a few things i asked him to to keep things ticking over... fine now but still teary, things dont usually get to me like that....."take a grip carol"
is it normal to get, all i can explain it as is a uncomfortable tightening right in the middle between your boob's i have a incision there (white tape) so i gather its something to do with the op..
im so excited to see how the weight loss goes...
