Day 7 post op

29.5 is my weight lost to date.  I jumped on it, didn't like what I saw, went to pee and jumped right back on Bessie. Only then did she give me a number I felt would sufficiently please me. The day of surgery I was ???, and when I started my preop diet I was at least ???+20 because my magic any-weight-at-all-pants weren't working anymore. I'd broken The Pants!!!!!

I've been feeling really good with hardly any pain at all. I've still been lying around taking it easy though while my parents are here. I haven't really needed to take my pain medicine since Tuesday. The pain is manageable enough without it and honestly, I've never really been a big fan of las drogas. Anything that's going to alter my reality or perception I take as minimally as possible. Liquid codeine is not quite the same as taking a BC powder. The first night that I took it, it felt like my body was sinking into the mattress. I had these crazy ideas that I was sinking to Hades, but that if I was there wasn't really much that I could do about it. I just closed my eyes and enjoyed the ride. I was a wee bit elated to wake up in my own casa.

Anyway, I did an H. pylori test a month before surgery and it came out negative. Yesterday, I got a call from to doc saying that my path report had detected H. pylori so I had to send my husband to the pharmacy to pick up 140.00 dollars worth of freaking meds. One of three is a giant horsepill. This would have been SOOO much easier with my old 40 gallon, cast iron stomach. I tried crushing it, but the bittter taste persisted in my mouth for hours, and then it went from bitter to salty which kinda grossed me the hell out. Anyway, I get to test Sleevie Wonder's ability to process horse pills today.
