Monday, April 26th, marked some slow improvement. I’m able to eat more at a sitting than before, and I think I’m getting better at relieving gas pressure in the upper GI tract. I was able to sit at the computer for an hour or so at a time.
I think I’ll note here my weight as I remember it over this crisis.
Pre-flareup: 205 lbs.
Emergency room weight: 199 lbs.
Post-surgery weight (April 14th): 188 lbs.
Discharge weight (April 24th): 182 lbs.
April 27th weight: 180.5 lbs.
I think I need to gain another three to five pounds and work on restoring lost muscle mass.
