I gues this is more or less a vent/ramble but any advice or input would be greatly appreciated. I am currently 3 weeks post op. The first two weeks were fairly simple (1st whole week was in hosp and was on IV whole time, no fluids beyond water/ice) 2nd week clear liquids, gagged down as much of the proteing supplement (GNC Pure Liquid Protein fruit punch flavored NASTY NASTY NASTY) as I could and took my other multi vites. Week 3 back to work, on pureed diet for next 8 weeks. Not doing well at all, cant stand anything I have pureed thus far, tried baby food GAG!, gave up a couple times and ate "normal food" but chewed a million times before swallow PAIN! I am no where near getting enough protein or liquids, no matter how hard I try... and to make things worse I have not lost one pound in a week! this is really making me doubt my decisions and myself. I am really trying hard to do what I need to do and follow doctor instructions. And I have even started to work out despite the continued pain. No progress. I have only lost 20 lbs (10 pre-op and 10 post op). I am so frustrated and discouraged. Anyone else gone through or is going through this? I know I must be doing something wrong, any ideas?
