I was heading back to work today, that was my plan when I saw the APN last Thursday. My surgeon was stuck in surgery and did not see him, and she thought it would be a good time for me to return as well. Well forget that, I have not had a "poop" since last Wednesday, I am completely stopped up. Gotta love pain pills. I had to take them since my pain was awful. Now I am paying the price, the pain at my port site is awful once again because of the pressure in there I am assuming.
I am off to get a perscription of Magnesium Citrite and that should do the trick they hope. I am planning on heading back to work on Wednesday now.
All I can say is I am so ready to feel better, and be able to have enough energy to get back to the gym. I want to work out. I have not been on the scale since last Monday. I had gained 10 pounds. I am scared to weight while all this is going on, because with swelling and now impaction who knows what the scale will say. I am just trying to remain calm.
I see my internal med doc on Thursday and she is going to give me a new drug to try that will help my hunger. I am hoping that it works. I have not been hungry since surgery though. Which is good, I have not been eating much but what I have been eating has been mostly healthy. I am trying to make healthy choices and just heal. I think that is most important right now.
I know that I will not be going under the knife again anytime soon. I have no desire to feel this way again anytime soon. I feel like they went in there and just ripped my band out. I know that is NOT what happened. But this has been so different than what I imagined it would be. I figured it would be no worse than having the band implanted. I was so wrong.
I have been reading the blogs, but have not written much. I will do better. I have just not felt much like posting, or doing anything. I am glad that the weather is warming up, it is a huge incentive for me to get out of the house.
