    Yeah, it can be really tricky for sure. hope you get some answers Katrina

    Blood pressure tonight is 82/48. It's typically mid to low 80's over mid 50's. It's been this way at least since I had surgery. You know what my doctor told me to do for that? Go to McDonald's and get a large fry with extra salt. I have a low heartrate and blood sugar, too. I've been eating really healthy this week, and I've lost 4 pounds since Monday (112 this morning).
    No pre-op diet
