I went for my post – surgical follow up today and everything looks good! (Back story HERE and HERE)
He said my incisions are healing nicely and all the pain and discomfort I’m still experiencing is normal and should go away within a few weeks/months. He reminded me that even though it was laproscopic surgery, he still rearranged my anatomy…which is MAJOR surgery. He originally wanted me to take a full two weeks off from work to recover, but I didn’t feel like I could (that’s a sad story for another time). He also warned me that I would be very tired and lethargic for a while because my body is using all its energy to heal itself, but I should start to feel better in a couple more weeks. It’s just going to be a very slow recovery.
As far as my diet goes…still on liquids, but I can add in some soft foods. Fortunately, I’m okay with the fluids I’ve been ingesting. In fact, the Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup I made last night is even creamier and more delicious the second day!
The most exciting thing from my follow up appointment is the fact that I no longer have to take my acid reflux medication…WooHoo!!
