It’s almost been a week since I had my surgery

I’ve just been amazed how good that I am feeling.

The only problem is my shoulder hurts, which I hear is common.  I’m going to have to ask my surgeon about it when I see him on Thursday.

I’m not quite sure that I’m actually eating enough, but I’m not hungry.

I have yet to take pain medication.  I actually considered it last night because of the shoulder pain, but I was able to fall asleep and it was a little better this morning when I wake up.

I’m still not sure that I’m eating quite the right things.  I don’t see the nutritionist until the 24th of November since that was the only day they could get me in to see both the nurse and nutritionist at the Heart and Wellness center.   I think I’m going to call tomorrow and see if I can get seperate appointments and get into see the nutritionist earlier.

The good news is I’m down 6lbs since last Monday and 21lbs total since I started my presurgery diet.

I go back to work tomorrow and I think this week I’m going to concentrate on trying to eat 3 scheduled meals and 2 snacks per day.  At least the 3 scheduled meals.  Being home, my schedule is so off and I’m eating at odd times.
