Rest. Lots of Rest

I'm feeling better and better lately, the incisions on my abdomen are healing up nicely. I still have swelling right around my belly button, but it takes a long time for swelling to go down.

The main 'symptom' affecting me is fatigue. The slightest activity exhausts me. Going out to a friend's house leaves me utterly wiped out by the end of the evening. However my surgeon warned me of this so I'm trying to take it easy and not push myself too hard.

The other thing going on is my ravenous appetite. It's like I've been freed from 5 years of food prison and am suddenly on a food-gone-wild binge. Fruit, Subway, tomato sauce, juice, freezies, yogurt, cookies, you name it. Though I'm not sure how well I'm tolerating these things, because I've had mr. D constantly since the surgery. I think I need to take it a bit easier and just introduce new foods one at a time. I also need to gain weight. I'm still way under what I should be. Ensure Plus is helping with this.

All in all I can say that so far, I'm glad I had the surgery.
