    New bandit and really regretting it :(

    first of all, im sorry to hear of your recent losses. I too was thinking to myself as I was waiting to go in for surgery "what the freakn hell am I doing" and as soon as I woke up in recovery I was like "o my freakn god, I have totally messed up". Even early days after my op I was still in a weird and scared mind frame. Mind you, im only 10 days post op and I still think "wtf". Its still early days my friend and we have a long journey to go. We have to expect ups & downs. Nothing is ever perfect now is it. Take a chill pill and just go with it. Take care luv
  8. How long in general has it taken everyone to recover post-op in particular, the main cut where the port is?

      It took me at least a good week before the discomfort started to go away. After that it was another 6-8 weeks before it had healed up.

    11 days post op - disappointed

    Im hearing, feeling and agreeing with everyones opinions. The notes i was given said i could eat anything as long as it was the consistancy of being able to get it through a mcdonalds straw. This is meant to be my eating regime for two weeks then i can start on mashed type foods. All this info was written in handouts given to me by my dietitian. In saying this though, i started watching the dvd last night which was also made & given to me by my dietition and she stated that you need to be on the puree phase up until about six weeks when u get ur first fill. Im like wtf!!! Now, im only 9 days post op and i was really naughty tonight!!! I had a little munch on some chinese food. It was a slow process but it all went down like a treat with no issues and god damn it was freakn delish!!! At the same time though i am a little worried that maybe i shouldnt have but I also kind of agree with what Teegz91 said about listening to ur body. And jess, I have that same little stitch in the same spot as you. Its not iritating me so i guess I will just let it go on its own.
  10. Im very curious to ask if anyone has been naughty while still in their liquid phase post op???

      I have to confess that I have been a little naughty. I had some chinese the other night and it went down a treat. in saying this though, I was very careful not to put myself in a position where anything could possibly get stuck.
