I should have knocked on that wood a little harder when I mentioned that I didn't get the dreaded gas pain. My left shoulder is so sore, I wish I could go get a massage! I've been sitting here with a hot pack on it most of the day.
In happier news (again, TMI) I finally had a small bowel movement and some gas escape today which has taken some pressure off my innards. I am feeling hungry but eating very cautiously. I am terrified of throwing up at this phase of recovery. Yesterday I had:
Breakfast: Chobani Greek Yogurt - 14 g. protein
Lunch: Muscle Milk Light protein drink - 20 g. protein
Dinner: Cream of Tomato Soup made with skim milk - 7 g. protein
plus my multi, calcium and pain killers - oh, yeah and water, water water
Today I've had:
Lunch: 1/2 C, cottage cheese (13 g protein) and left over tomato soup (7 g protein)
I see a pattern developing here. Not a lot of variety because I am not enamored of the idea of eating "pureed meat". And I have another week and a half of this. Soft foods will feel like a luxury when I finally get there.
So, here is my question. I am being really good. Staying on my doctors orders and working hard to eat enough protein every day. My birthday is on Saturday. I am thinking of splurging and getting some frozen yogurt. It is definitely smooth but it is also most definitely not on the list of approved foods. Should I be bad and splurge? Thoughts?
