It's been one week since I was sleeved. And it has been an interesting journey. Pain has been very minimal. I stopped the pain pills around day 3 or 4. So far meals have consisted of protein shakes, diluted juices, and other clear liquids along water. It's been a little rough just because I would like a texture change, but I have not been hungry. I am tracking my water and protein intake and am successfully up to about 10 ounces of fluid each hour.
Today I also added in nonfat re-fried beans and pudding with protein powder mixed in. It was a nice change up.
My scale this morning showed 260! Which Means I am down 17 lbs since my preop visit on 10/19. I am so excited to see the scale moving!
Activity wise I have been walking around the house. My energy level has dropped a bit since I stopped taking pain meds. This mornings shower wore me out a bit. I think one more week of recoup and I will be moving much better.
Anywho, If there is anyone left out there in blogland, I hope you are well. I hope your turkey day is full of blessings and yummy food! My kids are home from college this week! Exciting stuff is happening!
