Ugh, I was so right, I should have avoided the scale right now. This morning it read 223--up 5 pounds! I know that is a side effect of surgery, but oh my it sounds awful. Constipation, fluids added during surgery, inflammation and inactivity are a few causes, but golly I hate seeing that number.
Today is day 2 post-op. I managed to shower this morning and eat some yogurt for breakfast. I am also trying to get lots of liquids in today. Still hurting a bit so I am continuing my Vicodin--my pain relief friend. I think it may also cause some constipation issues. I am hoping to take a little walk later and get some much needed movement.
