Dr. Stevens is very careful to keep my anesthesia right on the edge. That does mean that many times I'm feeling quite a bit of pain. Its not the worst pain I've ever felt, but it does put some perspective on the Bible passages where the concuring army puts hooks in the jaws of the defeated and leads them along. Ow!
I'm dropping weight again. This years total so far is 11lbs. down. Thats a total of 79 lbs. I'm feeling weak and puny. I tried to eat things all day yesterday. They bounced back up like they were on a trampoline. Dealing with it was exhausting. In one hand I hold the glass or cup of eggnog (water, tea, etc) that I'm trying to get in. In the other hand, I have my spit cup. I take a sip and before I get the cup away from my mouth a couple of inches I'm regurgitating. I usually urp a couple of times, spewing not only what I swallowed but any accummulated saliva. It goes on all day, interspersed only with emptying the spit cup and refilling my glass or trying some other liquid. I'm feeling weak, starving and dehydrated.
I'm starting with herbal tea for the nutrients and hoping it will get better from here. :-}
