Surgeon is in no hurry. He said I have a lot of healing to do. Feeling down and tired of everything at the moment. Diarrhea went away so now I’m afraid to go the other way and am back to my regular high fiber diet.
Oncologist was worried about my constant weight loss. Surgeon said try to stay where I am and don’t try to put any back on. I’m not eating as much as I should as I’m still worried that whatever goes in must come out.
I’ve done a little walking but the blisters are making it difficult to want to move my legs. I haven’t worn my Fitbit or watch in months.
Hi! Checking in to see how you are doing.
Sure hope those blisters are getting better.
Thank goodness the incredibly inflamed area I had is prob 80 percent better.
Have been able to sit regular for awhile now. Actually feel normal at times.
Bathroom issues a little better, but can’t seem to shake the diarrhea and morning urgency.
Went for a check yesterday. Blood work was good, I’m glad about that.
Regarding weight... the whole eating thing is frustrating.
It’s like you develop a bad relationship with food.
I’ve lost about 25 pounds since dx last April.
My appetite is somewhat back, but still so limited in my food choices.
The nurse yesterday said introduce new foods one at a time.
And the naturopath I see recommended Orgain Protein shakes.
