2.5 weeks post op

Well It had been a few weeks since I have posted. On Friday it will be three weeks since my surgery and it am doing great. Feel fantastic, eating healthy, no problems with nausea or eating. I'm down a total of 31lbs and counting. I hit a 3 day plateau at 28 lbs but then it started again.
I am almost not able to wear a few pairs of my jeans and the rest of my clothes are starting to fit loose.

I am eating 60+ grams of protein a day and I eat every 2 hours on the dot usually. My stomach tells me when it is time :-)

Hello puréed diet!

Well I'm only able to eat about a 1/4 cup of anything at a time right now. I think that's mainly because of gas, air and swelling. The crazy thing is I have no cravings, no hunger pains, no growling in my stomach. I am drinking the pre mixed 100% designer whey protein drink and having some apple sauce for lunch and so far tolerating both well. Tonight I plan on having scrambled eggs puréed with a veggie. I never thought I would be so excited to have puréed food haha

4days post op

Well I am 4 days post op. The gas is almost gone and I'm actually pretty comfortable, just get tired easy. Keeping up in my zofran and Pepcid but only using pain meds when needed and I haven't really needed them. I have been doing my walking and have been drinking my clear liquids. I can eat about a half f a jello cup in one sitting but i think that's probably mostly because my stomach is swollen. 

I haven't been hungry at all, so I keep a sheet of paper and I have been writing daily when I am taking my meds and when I eat. Drinking lots of water, and 100% juice and for dinner I have a warm veggie broth.

Feeling pretty good today, just some gas pains but other than that no pain just keep walking and sleeping. In waiting on the doctor to come and see me and hopefully release me. I can't wait to sleep in my own bed.
