I am at over 6 weeks, and I have been eating quite a bit. I don't eat bread or meat, but I have been eating some cookies, and crackers with lobster spread. I can't drink much (a couple glasses of wine, no more than that, with food). I'd say I'm still eating less than what "normal people" eat, but it's about as much. And my stomach (at the wrap site) hurts for a while after. I feel a bit nauseous. I had a couple cups of coffee this morning, with two small poached eggs and some crackers, and I am still full and feel a bit nauseous, even after the zofran anti-nausea pill. But it is getting better.
I felt a little tiny bit of reflux in my breathing afterwards, but I know the wrap site is holding strong.
I think I just need to not eat too much. I've been getting too comfortable with eating more (I ate some pistachio ice cream last night -- delicious!!!!)
Any thoughts on the below that I posted before:
"I'm going to hold off on the weights for another month and a half, and then start small, only to work my way up to about 200 lbs benchpresses and flyes, which will probably take a while since I haven't lifted in many months and now I'm looking almost skeletal. My surgeon says that will be fine at that time. Thoughts? Agree? Disagree?
How about swimming? I reallly want to get into swimming now that I'm skin and bones. I hear that it's the best kind of exercise someone can get. Anything bad about it at this stage of the game (6 weeks)?"
