4 Days Post Op

I am home and my parents have come into town to be with me during this first week of recovery.  I was able to go home the day after surgery, but they did not let me leave until like 7:30p that evening.  

I still have a bit of gas, which can hurt like the dickens when it is in my chest.  I know I am getting all of my fluids in that I need and I am getting 42g of protein, though only about 200 cals.  Today I was able to add some protein drinks so I was able to get some more calories.

It still hurts to take deep breaths, but I know that will just take time to get better.  And last night I kept coughing and that hurt a whole lot.

I will be so happy when the healing part is done...


  1. I am so happy that you got through it okay and you are on the mend!! Hugs!

  2. Oh, I'm so glad to hear that you're home and have started the healing process. Been praying! (it's just what I DO!)
    Good deal.
    Okay......not so easy of a deal, but it'll happen. It already is.

    Easy does it, one foot in front of the other and you'll be up and about in no time.
    In the meantime......LET PEOPLE HELP.

    (felt a need to shout that one...LOL)

    *hugs* Thinkin' of ya!
