Had My Follow Up Appointment.
Twelve pounds! Twelve Pounds in six days!?!?!? HOLY COW!! WOOOO HOOOO!!!
So everything looks good. My incisions look fine, glue is holding well, no leaking. Still have some swelling. My lack of burping is normal. And no more eggs until Friday. BUMMER! He just explained the whole liquid diet is important, blah, blah, blah. Good that it went down okay but let's hold off on solider foods for the next few days. Easy for him to say since he's going to go eat a burger and fries for dinner! :)
I'm confused by this silly post-op diet. So two weeks of liquids...that I understand. But liquids includes cream soups which are thicker. Then I move onto two weeks pureed. And the mushies. Okay...isn't pureed and mushy kind of the same thing? I'm trying to think about it like baby food stages. I just don't know if I'm on bottles or rice cereal right now?
