It's been four days now, since I was able to make a #2. I am eating fiber chews twice a day, taking EFAs once a day and drinking a ridiculous amount of water. I pee 500 million times a day, but any #2 is stuck. I have called my weight loss doctor to see what I else I can do to help this, because it is getting ridiculous. Even the poopy I had on Thursday was like birthing a baby or what I imagine having a baby is like. There was cussing, sweating and lamaze breathing involved.
Eating (or not eating) has been hard, hard, hard. I am still on pureed food until Wed, when I hopefully get my first fill. And believe me, I NEED that fill. I am supposed to only eat 1/2c of food at a time and I am doing my best to stay there, but I am sure I am eating more than that at least half the time. I am also snacking, I don't stay full very long if I even feel it at all. I am still making good choices, my snacks are applesauce or sting cheese. I just want the restriction back that I felt the first couple weeks!! I noticed that I have one little stitch sticking out of my port incision that I hope my doc will take care of while I am in there. Peaches just wants to pull on it really hard, I am worried that I will come 'unzipped' and all my guts will fall out or something!
I will also get cleared for exercise other than walking on Wed, I hope. I want to get my personal trainer party started! I am really anxious to get in the gym and get my sweat on. This weekend I picked up a pair of New Balance shoes for the gym, they do not allow outside shoes in there.
This weekend I had some really strange pains in my band area when I woke up in the mornings. It would go away after two or three hours, but felt like a cramp. Anyone else have this problem?
Thanks for all your advice with the family next door, I have not made any choices on what to do about them. I am really worried that if I complain to anyone about it they will try and hurt my animals again.
