I limited myself to an hour outside, yet the fresh air and the good friends made it all worth it. I feel good!!!
Never thought that plain chicken soup could be so tasty.
So for those of you that have joined my blog a few days ago here is quick rundown of what my last week has been like.
I had the (VSG) Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy on Wednesday. I was pretty much out of it on Thursday although I made sure to get up and walk around as much as possible. The hardest part was trying to take a leak. Took me three takes over three hours. I guess it was after the nurse said that he would insert a catheter that I made a break for it. A day later I opted for morphene to hide the pain. The morphene meant no pain but I was barely awake to see all of my visitors. I was discharged yesterday and today I am feeling great. I have been carrying on with the walking and I have been sipping a lot. I have started eating simple liquidized yoghurts and soups. Gotta be careful not to gulp like I used to eat. Bad habits are hard to change and will take time.
So now I am back home and I made a list of things to do after the op. One of them was to invest a lot of time with my family which I intend to do. The other things can wait. Believe it or not I have a two week vacation (I planned it that way) and I intend to do just that. Have a relax, learn my new body and get on with the rest of my live.
