Guess id fill anyone interested in on a little of my recovery thus far.. and also hopefully some reassurance from the 'long wrappers' that everything is I'm feeling is not out of the spectrum.
So I'm still on the puree diet and struggling with keeping any weight on.. Currently I've lost 6.5kg and energy levels aren't the greatest but do come and go in spurts. The 'heartburn sensation feeling' that is highly unlikely to be heartburn as per my surgeon is slowly getting shorter in length and severity.. Even down to a few days without the pain at all.. I'm putting that down to just wrap irritation.
Probably the thing I'm struggling with the most is appetite due to nausea.. I do take anti nausea tablets before every meal and find if I don't - I suffer from that sickly feeling majority of the day. It is very draining.
One other not so pleasant symptom I hope goes away soon is the upset stomach when I need to go toilet.. Can't seem to get any consistency in that department lol.. The gas part doesn't worry me all that much - bothers my wife much more lol..
Anyways, anyone that's familiar or has gone/going through the same as above please drop a line.. I'm probably feeling around the 60% to 70% of my normal self at this stage.. Looking forward and a little nervous about starting the soft diet next week as per my schedule.. As it does open a few more options up.
