Today is my post op follow up appt

So today I am off to see my incredibly good looking surgeon for a post op follow up. Hoping to discuss his findings at my band removal and discuss the next step. Nervous much ? Mm yes !

Feeling pretty good 2 weeks today since the surgery I'd be lying if I said it was easier then I thought ! Turns out it was a lot more intense. My stomach still thinks there's a band there I can only eat a small portion and get stabbing pain if I eat anything too hard.

Will post later about the date I am given

Day 6 post band removal

Today is day 6 post op... I am feeling much better needing less medication only late in the afternoon and at night. I drove today for the 1st time since the OP. Only a very short drive but it felt good to get out Cabin fever certainly set in yesterday and continued today with some very grumpy behaviour !  Tonight the top wound was so itchy that I could not stop scratching it I had a small reaction to the tape so I pulled it off... hmmm it looks rather raw and the itch is worse... hoping I have something to cover it in the first aid kit ekkk

Doing lots of reading and preparing myself for my post op appointment Wednesday week.

Day 3 post op Band removal

Ticking along at home post op... Last night my first night at home was painful, I had  the drug mix all wrong so ended up  having to wait up in pain till midnight to get it sorted. The tablets lasted 4hours and 15mins and I was awake again ready for more! I had to prop myself up on pillows as being too flat was painful. I don't remember getting the band in being this painful... I am on fluids and small amounts of soft foods, I tried some firmer food but the pain was awful. Small amounts of fluid often also happening, Apparently it will be puffy for a few days yet. Still pondering the choice and what lays ahead ...
