Heating pad and liquid loratab...

I get drowsy pretty quick, so this will be short. My incisions are pretty painful and the swelling around my port is hurting. I think the gas in my shoulders has worked is way out. I've actually passed gas which makes me feel great but hurts like hell to push out! Sorry if that's too much info but it does hurt!

I've eaten 1 whole jello cup today, not l in one sitting of course but that's been my diet. Ice cubes and teeny, tiny bites of jello. Oh and I had some chick broth...not a lot, maybe a quarter of a cup.

The heating pad has been my best friend. I turn it on and the off and then on and then off. I take my pain meds, switch on the heating pad, get comfy and fall asleep.

I hope I feel better tomorrow. I get to move to full liquids tomorrow...I'm looking forward to pudding and a protein shake. I think i'm hungry but it's hard tell. People around me eat and I'd love to have some but I know it'd hurt like hell and I'm not really hungry. I guess I will be fighting head hunger sooner than I thought.

Pain meds are starting to kick in and I'm getting droopy. Have a good night...


  1. Congrats to you on your surgery. Welcome to the other side. I hope you are feeling better soon.

  2. Welcome to the "Sisterhood of the Bandster's"!! Hope your pain goes away quickly!

    I had no gas pains at all, but then again, I let it out as needed (sorry, TMI)!! My biggest pain was the Port site. It hurt me for at least a month, but then slowly died away.

    You will be great! The head hunger is the worst!

  3. Hey there,
    What you're going through is all normal.. if normal is feeling like crap.. Hang in there, it WILL get better day by day! Truly it will. So fantastic that you are now here with us.. on the 'dark side!!' lol.
