Yesterday, they had me up at 6am to sit back in the chair and start drinking protein shake and water every hour. Along with doing breathing treatments and walking around. No rest for the weary. Around 2, they came in to start discharge stuff and took my IV out with the 3 very sticky pieces of tape. They also took out my drainage tube which felt really weird and uncomfortable. Definitely not something I want to experience again. Once I got home, I continued on my hourly protein/water regiment. I decided to sleep on the couch last night because I knew I'd probably be up and down a bit.
Today, I still feel a lot of pressure in my chest and I really hope that part goes away. Otherwise I seem to be pretty good considering I had pretty major surgery and they took out 80% of my stomach.
I'm not going to weigh until I go to my post-op appointment next week because they said I'd probably gain due to all the fluid they pumped me with. But the morning of the surgery, I had lost 12 lbs since starting the low-carb diet which was only like 2 or 3 weeks ago. So that's good!
