I'm home and I can finally say I am a post op. My surgery went really well, no problems. I still feel sore and take pain meds every 3 hours. I was joking with my husband that I feel like a stabbing victim with 6 slits in my abdomen. For me it's been really easy getting to know my new stomach. (All that prep work helps) I haven't had any pouch problems, I've just taken it really slow with sipping water at first and can now eat about an ounce or so of tomato soup. I discovered I like my protein powder mixed in coffee. It seems too sweet when mixed with milk, but blended with coffee is really nice. Thanks everyone for all the words of support!! It means a lot to know I had you guys to look forward to checking back in with.
