5 Days Post-Op

Hey everyone! Well, it's Friday, day 5 post-op and I am feeling pretty good. Still can't carry my baby a lot but slowly getting there. I will be glad when the staples come out on Monday because now I can feel them tugging. Yummy! I felt my first hunger pangs today at lunch time. I drank my protein shake and they went away. I feel something in my tummy now but can't figure out if it is hunger or gas. I will wait a little while before my next protein shake to be certain that it is hunger. I weighed myself today and it showed a 2 pound loss from the day of surgery. That sucks! I have been consuming 3 protein shakes and water daily and have only lost 2 pounds! WTF! My belly is still swollen so I am trying not to obsess about it. I hope the scale at the surgeon's office shows a loss on Monday. I want to see the weight start coming off so I know that I made the right decision by getting the Lap-Band!

  1. Glad to know there's a light at the end of the tunnel! I was banded yesterday and man is the gas pain killing me. I hardly feel the incisions but the gas...good lord. I've never had so much shoulder pain in my life!

    Congrats on your progress, 2 pounds in five days (that you'll more than likely NEVER see again) is really good! I have no intention of weighing myself until my follow up appointment - I just don't want to mentally freak myself out. Which I totally will! =)
