The only reason I use the jar is for being able to mt while my co-driver ( I drive team with another driver in the truck, namely my mother) is driving and can't stop at a rest stop or a truck stop all the time. But when I'm driving then it's to the restroom to take care of business.
I don't tire as much as I would have expected to but it took me a short couple of days to get back into the routine of driving a truck. After that I think I can drive my usual hours like I use to before the surgery. As for the diet, well I can eat pretty much anything I use to but I try not to eat those foods near as often. I have not eaten beef near as much as I did and I have eaten more fish and chicken. They don't smell as bad as beef does!!!
I thank you all for all the kind words and don't worry, I will be safe out here. I have too!!!
