Hi I'm day 6 post op today ,I slept 7 hours last night,yesterday I felt water and drink backing up.today I've had a cup of tea and it went down well.
First time today no shoulder pain,lets hope that stays.
I can still only manage quarter a cup of food but my surgeon said its not a race I just worry bout losing to much weight I've lost 6 pound already .i was thinking of getting some ensure or boost but I am eating lots of veg mash blended up with gravy ,full fat custard ,jelly ,I just discovered dairy lea cheese goes down well.
I haven't got any pain as such just sore when I lay down and first get up.
My stomach is making noises today but maybe my bowel is getting into gear that is slow.
I have suffered no reflux as yet and I'm really pleased I am asthmatic I have only taken my blue inhaler once since surgery I would normally take it at least three times a day.
I'm hoping to reduce my steroid inhaler in time.
How are you doing ?
Thank you kitt
Bill and Denise are great,I did get a diet sheet will more a small book when I left hospital but I didn't get told much else or what to expect .so to have these two who have gone through it more than once ,I come on here and it's like having our own consultants.I am so grateful to them both and to Denise as I to have asthma.
All I can say is I wish I got to see this consultant two years ago as I was under another consultant but got a second opinion best days work I ever did.
Thank you so much kitt
