This is what im hoping for @milliemollymandi1234 but obviously noone can tell, im hoping ill be so ecstatic at just waking up that ill be ok ive spoken to my 12 year old and asked her would it bother her more seeing me really sleepy or waiting til the next day and she said she would rather see me no matter what so depending on where I am in the list ill go with her lead I think, thank you for the positive reply xSee I was really different from above. I felt great after husband was there and home next day to the little one.
Sore but not as painful as expected
Well I had soup and sandwiches for tea evening before as no LRd in hospital for me and had not eaten all day due to traveling and worried I would not get there in time despite being 3 hrs early lol! I wish I hadn't eaten to give my stomach the Chance to be as small as possible being pulled out as surgeon said it was huge eek! Died of embarrassment but the pain of that wound may have been less if smaller. Only other thing is less risk of sickness maybe after surgery? One thing I am glad of is that I was not sick the retching would hurt like hell I imagine.Anyone any tips on what may make things better dietwise today, im obviously still on the LRD, but have read fluids only 24 hours before (milk/shakes) can make things easier? Im certainly not thinking like a nurse today, im definately a patient!!
Asked surgeon on Thursday and he said before could fill me up and not allow enough room for protein and after could make what food i ate swell before it was digested.
Thanks SAM55 I will contact dietician tomorrow re protein. However I should be starting purée on Wednesday I can blitz chicken then.Mine was clear and nutritious liquids Want2B3. The nutritious ones all include milk or yoghurt, even the smooth thin soup. It is very important you get the protein in so if you have stopped milk all together and not found a substitute then i would suggest you speak to your dietitian asap as it is a vital ingredient of healing. I did eat NAS jelly without too much trouble but it only added slightly to my fluid content, and a change of taste, due to the amount, but added no nutrition whatsover.
