Post Op Day 2

First of all, is it horrible that I got on the scale this morning?? The disappointing part is that I'm exactly the same weight as I was the morning of surgery. I know I should have waited at least a week to jump on that thing. I guess I just figured that after 2 days of eating barely anything I would have lost SOMETHING! Oh well, I won't take it to heart.

Doing a lot better than yesterday I must say! I can actually bend over and put my own pants on without my husband helping me, bless his heart!! I seriously don't know what I'd do without that man! I'm still sore of course, but just as everyone is telling me, it IS getting more tolerable. Thank goodness, because for awhile I was thinking to myself "Is this really worth it?!?"
Still quite a bit of gas. I think maybe I'll have my hubby pick up some GasX strips for me after he gets off work. My arm is still achy.


  1. Don't look at your weight yet silly! You are still pumped full of fluids! The fact that you weighed the same as before surgery is good!!

  2. Glad it's going well. The gas will gradually disappear over the next couple of weeks. I found bending over really helped (made me burp!)

  3. It's not horrible. I get on the scale constantly (well, not more than once a day), so I understand. Give it a week, you'll see some changes!

  4. Ha- I got on the scale a couple times a day while I was home recovering from surgery. Isn't that what it is all about?
    I am sure you have actually lost some weight but it won't show until come of the bloating goes away.
