5/7 update

May 07, 2012 09:06PM
I was advanced to a "post esophagectomy diet" today. It is basically softer food but in greatly reduced portions. This is going to be my biggest challenge- I was completely full after only a couple of bites, which means I will not be able to get anywhere near the level of calories for the volume of food I can tolerate. This will get better but I am going to have to subside on liquids, Ensure and smoothies, for a while.

The sensation of fullness is odd. I no longer feel it in my belly as before, but in my chest..almost as if I had to let go a big belch. I will always have to be careful not to eat within 3 hours of going to bed, so no more late night dinners.

I am still hoping they let me go home tomorrow..a good night's sleep would do me wonders.

Outstanding! My guess is that even though he's still recovering, "home" never felt better. * Nolehoops May 08, 2012 07:35PM
