So today makes my 3rd day post-op. My pain is subsiding a little each day. I have tried weaning myself off of the percocet during the day and only taking it at night because it makes me so tired. I have gone to the store with my mom and ran a few errands, which went well.
The only negative I'm having right now is severe diarrhea. I have had no appetite for any protein supplements, but know that I am supposed to be getting 60 gms a day in so I try to get them down. Every time I drink though I end up in the bathroom. I called the hospital today and talked to the nurse practitioner, she said that maybe I had developed an intolerance to whey protein and to try a soy based protein. So off to GNC I went to get a soy based mix. I just drank 8 oz of that and within 5 minutes I was in the bathroom. What the hell is going on with my body?? I'm worried about this and don't feel its normal. Oh well I will keep trying and hopefully it gets better, if not I will be calling the hospital again tomorrow!
