I'm three weeks out from my Posterior Wrap. A couple of things I wanted to ask/mention from your posts.
I asked specifically if there would be any scheduled follow up procedures/tests to see how things are going and my surgeon said absolutely not, why rock an undisturbed boat, assuming things are going well.
I saw my doc yesterday. He asked me to stay on the soft side of food for the foreseeable future. So long as I'm eating high protein, softer foods then I'm to eat at my leisure, which right now is about every 3 hours. Sometimes it's because I'm a little hungry, sometimes because I know it's been long enough. I drink a lot of milk/chocolate milk (YES chocolate, my surgeon waved that off as a concern) cottage cheese, cheese, eggs in any palatable form, egg salad, tuna salad, saltine crackers, triscuit crackers, anything dry and crispy that will chew to mush. I even braved a little super soft and tender dark meat chicken.
I think the MOST important thing, which I don't see talked about too often is HYDRATION. I sip all day long, it became a habit after my gastric surgery in 2005. I probably drink 60-80 oz of fluids a day in the form of water or crystal light iced tea really watered down. Keeping hydrated is critical on so many levels but one plus of it is it means I NEVER get really hungry and I eat on schedule because it's time, nothing more. Sometimes I'm too full from drinking to really eat at all. I know it's not the norm, but it works for me, so glean from it what works for you! =)
The two requests my Surgeon made of me moving forward for the next 6 weeks is: Continue to sleep at an angle of no less than 30 degrees. I try not to lay flat at all. That's so that the scar tissue that forms will always be pulling downward as it forms. Secondly, he just emphasized: DO NOT OVEREAT, do not push the limits of your new tummy, do not risk rupturing/stretching things out and undoing all I've been through.
So those are my thoughts! Long eh?
