Already 10 days post-op? Yay! I’m thrilled about that. I am down about 13 pounds so far and starting to feel a little stronger. Last night I finally got my bicycle out for a ride but really only got up the road and back. I still have a lot of cramping/pain in my lower/left abdominal area where the Doc says a lot of bruising tends to happen inside. (I try not to think about how my organs have been rearranged!!) 🙂
I am doing really well with food. I have no issues getting things down – am loving being able to have soup again (I love soups!). I am getting in about 700 to 750 cals per day and trying to keep my protein about 90g per day to be on the safe side for me.
My favorite is the Unjury protein powder – I would highly recommend it. And I am really enjoying the hot drinks and puddings from Bariatric Advantage (wonderlife line). Lemon pudding for dessert – YUM! I’m happy that there are so many products available so I can have flavors I enjoy without getting fat or sugar in. Eventually I will start cooking myself, but right now, where this is all so new, I’m definitely going for convenience. I love to cook, but I definitely don’t trust myself just yet.
Wishing everyone a blessed day.
