I feel that I am doing good considering I am 13 days post op. I am getting tired of liquids though. I am so ready for a scrambled egg and pureed foods starting this Saturday. I am feel tired when I get up in the mornings to get ready to come to work. I have worked full days everyday this week except Monday. As far as being hungry, I have done well with that. I make sure that I do my protein shake in the morning, plenty of water during the day and I have been having egg drop soup or tomato soup for lunch and supper. I got on the scales this morning and it looks like I have lost another pound. This makes 18 lbs so far since I had my surgery on 3/25. I know pureed does not sound good to a lot of people, but at least I can pureed some chicken and add some herbs and spices to it. There is not a lot that I feel I can do with liquids. I am still glad that I had the surgery and would not turn the clock back. I did not think that I had lost it in my face like my Durable Medical Equipment Provider told me when I had to switch out my CPAP mask, but I have. I look in the mirror and I can truly see in in my face around my cheek areas. I go today after work, because I am having problems with the pressure on my CPAP. The DME and my sleep doctor seems to think it is too much for me, so they are going to try me on an auto CPAP for two weeks. I guess this is to track what my breathing is and what kind of pressure I need now since I have had my surgery. I hope it will help, because as of right now, my CPAP is not helping me. I feel like I am pushing against a wall of air when I breathe. I did not feel like that before my surgery. I never thought I would experience things changing so rapidly after my surgery. I knew the surgery would help my health, but I did not know I would see results this quick.
My Fibromyalgia is doing really well. I have only had one episode since my surgery and because I could not take my medicine, I took the liquid pain medicine, the spasm went away. I have been so much better with my Fibromyalgia ever since I started using my CPAP. I just never knew that Fibromyalgia could be tied to my sleep apnea, but I do know that it is now. I hope eventually I can come off all my Fibromyalgia medicine.
