Day 5 Post Op

Today I got back to the gym for a bit of a work out. I could only do 10 mins on the treadmill at 4.5km/hr and 20mins on the bike at Level 2. So 30 mins all up.. pretty good I think! I'll definitely go to the gym for the rest of the week now and see if I can improve each day.

The steri-strips on my wounds are starting to come off a little now, and the wounds are pretty much pain free. I can press on them with no pain! Have started eating things that are a little thicker now, Yoghurt, pureed baked beans and vege soup. Good news, I've done my first proper bowel movement today (like I'm sure you wanted to hear about that). !! My movements have been squishy and very gassy so far, but today was a "good" movement. *lol*

Really missing just eating in general. You know, chewing something solid, the feeling of fullness, crunchy foods, chewy bready foods etc. At the moment, I am still feeling full, but it's a different type of full. Weird!

Still can't lie on my tummy, but I have been managing to sleep on my side if my tummy is supported by a pillow. My fiancee asked me last night when we can "resume activities" in his words!! *lol* I said when I felt comfortable.. which he was happy with. hehehe

The bruises on my legs from where they jabbed me with Heparin are turning a nice shade of greeny yellow, which is very attractive let me tell you.

Finally, I jumped on the scales to see how I was doing 5 days post op and I am pleased to report that I am now -2.5kg down from Friday!!!

Weight Pre-Op: 107.7kg
Weight day 5 post-op: 105.2kg

Yay! Speak soon!

Try chewing on some gum or pieces of ice... that way at least you get to chew something!
Worked for me :)

Thanks for the Advice J! Just looking for ways to spice up my diet plan at the moment. Went shopping today and have more of a range in my fridge!
