So the past few posts I've focused on swelling going down, but unfortunately it's at a standstill, despite my best efforts. Also, I can't close my mouth. My surgeon says when the swelling goes down, I'll be able to close it fine, but I'm skeptical because I don't see anyone else on the blogs with this problem.
I've been having lots of trouble eating. Partly because of my congestion. As a result I've also had trouble keeping food down. I basically spent the whole day throwing up.....sucks. My mom called my surgeon's office but they said this is common and not to worry, but I am worried! If I keep throwing up everything I eat I'm never going to heal! I've been averaging maybeee 1000 calories a day but probably more like 700. As a result my stomach has been super upset. I've basically had an upset stomach for a week now....I would also like that to go away.
I don't go in to see my surgeon/ortho until Monday so I am trying to hold off until then. Needless to say the past few days haven't been that pleasant.
I've been trying to walk, but due to lack of calories I'm so tired! I take a nap every day, yet still having trouble sleeping through the night!....even with the Ambien.
Sorry to make this such a depressing post! Any words of wisdom, encouragement...... I'll take whatever I can get!
