    Default Day one post-op

    Well it was a rough night of course. I am home now but I can barely get water to go down due to swelling. I will be happy to sleep in my own bed. Lots of pain and nausea at this point but I do realize that is part of the process. Hoping tomorrow will be better in all aspects.

    Every day gets better. Sip the smallest sips possible as often as possible. Feel better!! Actually, sleep is my #1 recommendation for the first week. I basically slept all week. I kept a journal to track my liquids and protein drinks. (And the protein drinks count toward both goals).

    Every day will be better and better.
    Rest (sleep) and sip as much water as you can.

    You'll be surprised how much better you feel in a couple of days. :-)

    I am 8 days post op and I already feel much better. I had my first Greek yogurt today, and it went down with no problems albeit it took me 2 hours to eat a small cup. Sleep and drink very small sips, you will be surprised how fast you will improve.

    Yay for you, I'm so happy everything went smoothly. The first 48-72 can be mentally and physically overwhelming, but as many have said, it really does get better each day. Sip, walk, rest, repeat.

    I can’t really add anything to what the others have said. The first couple of days were challenging, but not overwhelming. Like others, I slept a LOT the first couple of weeks. Walk as much as you can, sip, sleep. You’ll feel much better in a few days. You got this!

    Thanks so much! The worst for me is actually the phlebitis I have in my arm from the IV.
