Today was a trip to the store, though, to get some glucosamine-chondroitin to help me with my aching knees. That's the only thing that might mess me up.
And now about yesterday's fill... I'm STILL pretty tight. Drinking my protein shake was almost torture. I was burping all through class as it seemed to drip-drip-drip from my stoma into my stomach. It was misery. My water went down a bit better, but wow... this is tight. OH, and my reflux came back last night. Nice. About 5:30 this morning I was waking up coughing and sputtering. Not large amounts of acid, but still...
So another bandster who is also a nurse recommended taking liquid ibuprofen for the swelling; and I think tonight I will take one of my antacids before going to bed. The liquid Mylanta didn't do a damn thing for me last night. :(
If there's a silver lining in all of this, it's that I'm not hungry again. YAY!
