Hi woman cat, I also had my NFL on Tuesday. I also was pleased that I felt better than expected. Had clear liquids until Friday then started smoothies. Had mashed potatoes today with no problem. Have to remember small bites and eat slow
Take pain meds at night but not during the day. I tire easily but that is to be expected so I rest as needed. Have had some shoulder and neck pain but not too much.
Hope you recover quickly. Barb
