Well, I've been back to work for a couple weeks now and feeling more normal. I'm eating regular food and enjoying that much better. Fresh veggies and fruit are some of my favorite things to eat. I tolerate them well and they taste really good. My infection is gone and the hematoma continues to shrink. I went to my surgeon's office and was told that I need to exercise more and they are correct--I do. I went to my nephew's college graduation this weekend and walked quite a bit and started using my ellipical machine for 10 minutes at a time. I've been on a plateau for the past 2 weeks which is still as frustrating as ever, but I have to be patient with my body. I still don't eat much bread and am kind of scared to even try it since the surgery. I have eaten pasta and tolerate that OK, but I don't go overboard on it. I went to my primary physician last week and he changed a few meds--I'm off my b/p meds, potassium, cholesterol meds, and GERD meds. I'll only be on the vitamins and my migraine meds. I'm so glad to get rid of more medications. I'm hoping to get rid of my migraine meds once I get closer to my weight goal. Everything seems to be improving overall. FYI: I have lost some hair due to the stress on my body after surgery. Thank God I have thick hair.
