Wow, how time flies - I'm 1 week post-op today and am feeling really well. I think I've been one of the fortunate ones as I've had little pain, just some bad hearburn (which has eased now), I'm able to carry on as normal, get a slight twinge when I bend down to tie my laces, but thats all. My incisions are healing nicely, jut some purple/yellow bruising now - so all's good! Back to work next week.
Have decided that Friday will be my official weigh-in day:
since starting my preop diet on 6 May I have lost: 7.4kg / 16.2lb / 1st 2lb - yeah - happy with that!
So I have done 1 week of the post-op liquid diet.... and am sooooo over soup and optifast - just another week of it to go, how exciting not! before starting the 2 week mushies stage. Am so looking forward to eating something solid and chewing.
The downside of healing so nicely is that the surgery swelling will have subsided and the hunger will return - currently have no fluid in my band and won't have until 17 June, so am expecting the "bandster hell" that everyone talks about to hit me full on in the face!
Have a good weekend all...x
