5 Days Post-Op and Back to Work

I'm starting to think that I should have taken another day off. I'm more nauseous today then I have been this entire time and I'm suppose to start "Stage 2" today. Stage 1 is all clear liquids and and Stage 2 is all liquid and pureed fruits. I was really excited to eat the soup that I made last night, but now I'm not so sure that it's going to happen. I might be a tad dehydrated, so I'm sipping some G2 Gatorade to see if that helps. It also hurts to bend over and I have a weird pain in my neck on the left side towards the back, feels like a sore muscle. The waist band of my jeans is making my stomach hurt (where the holes from surgery are) when I sit and I sit at a desk all day. So I rigged the button on my jeans with a hair tie to keep them closed but kind of loose.

So last night I accidently ate a piece of raw broccoli..... How did that happen??? My child is in this horrible screeching phase and we were trying to ignore him. I was also trying to make broccoli cheddar soup and the screeching child is quite a distraction..... After I finished cutting up the broccoli, I reached down and grabbed a small piece of the bushy top and ate it..... and then waited and it went down.... It didn't get stuck!  After the broccoli, I had a few spoonfuls of yogurt.

I'm thinking that I might leave work early today and go home and take a nap.


  1. My first day back to work was really hard and I left early. My pants were rubbing right on my port and it was sore, sore, sore!!

    Glad to hear that your broccoli experience was a good one!

  2. I went home at 12:15.... I'll have to work a little bit this weekend. I feel better now after a long nap and some pain meds.

  3. I am going back to work Thursday, but only 1/2 day and same on Friday. I am just sore in the port area too and bending over like to put shoes on hurts ouchie!

  4. Had my first day back and was there for 10+ hours.... Bad idea... I'm in bed with a heating pad now!
