hi there! glad you're doing well. please remember - you've just had major surgery - it's gonna hurt for a bit. PLEASE talk to your doc about pain management. vicodin is good for some folks, but lots of people can't tolerate the opioids. and right now, you have to stay away from aspirin.
what did your doc tell you to consume for the first week or two? most of us were having an 'exciting' time on water, SF jello, SF popsicles, and maybe a little yogurt or something.
when's your next appt? should be coming up soon - sometime next week? make a list of all your Qs and concerns - DON'T LEAVE ANYTHING OUT - and talk with the doc and maybe the nurse. I promise you - NOTHING you say will surprise them.
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
