Woo-hoo! Two books I have ordered over the internet from "The Book Depository" have arrived! "Weight Loss Surgery Cookbook for Dummies" and "The Complete Weight-Loss Surgery Guide & Diet Program Includes 150 Delicious and Nutritious Recipes" Happy reading!
Well! Today i am 5 days post-op. So far i've lost 6.5kgs in total. I had my surgery tuesday afternoon with Dr Ian Michell and his team at Essendon Private. The hospital was lovely, my night nurse was absolutely fantastic, and i left wednesday afternoon with no complications. I haven't really had any issues so far. I'm eating soup recipes from the Knife, Fork, Band book which are great, really satisfying for savory and meaty flavours without being disgusting. Pain wise, i haven't really had much of an issue. I had my tonsils out at the beginning of the year and that was much worse than the pain levels i've had with the band. They gave me anti-inflams and endone when i left the hosp, but i haven't needed the endone, and ive just been taking panadol as my team suggested. The worst pain i've been in was due to gas or overeating. Its taken a while to learn that at this point, even tea counts as a meal, so you cant have a tea ontop of soup!!! Showering, driving, sitting are all fine, the only thing that im still not ok with is sleeping on my side (which is unfortunate as im a side sleeper!) and this is ok if i prop myself up with pillows and such now. Well thats it for now, ill update again when i get back to work next week! Any questions please let me know. - Jess
