I got on the scale today and was surprised to learn that I had lost nearly 13 pounds since my surgery. I knew from the pictures I saw of myself at Easter that my face looked a lot thinner but didn't realize it was that much. Granted I'm 5'6" and weighed 135 pounds before and now weight 122, but that just seemed like a lot. I thought back to it and I hadn't eaten anything substantial for almost 10 days. I'm just shy of 3 weeks post surgery and my appetite is still not back to what it was but I'm getting there each and every day. It's amazing the turmoil that surgery can put your body through.
I'm feeling better all the time and energy level is improving too.
