One Week Post Op Check up...

This first week has flown by.  While the first days were very very tough, the weekend started looking up and today I feel great.  I now take 20 minute walks 4x a day.  I am having no problems with gas or nausea.  I still have some tenderness as my body heal.  I am getting 80g protein each day.

My appt today was with my NP.  She removed the tape that was still on my incisions.  She said my lungs sounded clear.  She added iron supplements to my multivitamins & calcium.  I hope to find my nutrition from food once I am cleared to eat regular food.

This week I am able to add full protein shakes and creamed soups,  which would be a awesome break from the clear liquids I have been on .  On Thursday I will be able to try some yogurt.

Oh and and I can try my morning cup of JOE tomorrow....how I've missed him!

  1. Here's a soup that I enjoyed when I was on the liquid phase... I just added some unflavored protein powder to it. Pea with Mint soup. Yum!
