I am still in the hospital. My doctor gave me the a-ok to drink some clear fluids and wow, I wanted to guzzle the ginger ale, but I showed self control and only drank a couple of ounces. I slept okay, but still felt waves of severe cramping and nausea.
This morning, I drank an ounce of ginger ale and dozed off and on. I then drank a couple of sips of apple juice and continued to feel nauseas. I got up and walked, but hurried back to my room because I felt so nauseas. I threw up the apple juice.
The nurse also removed the epidural and placed me on a pain pump since I can't swallow pills yet.
I am waiting on my doctor to come in and see what he has to say about this. Does this mean some of my intestines are awake and some of them are alseep? I have no appetite and can't imagine even sipping some chicken broth. EWWWW
The nurses said I walk more than anybody in here and I am definitely doing my part trying to heal as quickly as possible.
