julieburns Posted July 22, 2008 Report Share Posted July 22, 2008 Hi guys and gals: Just a quick post to update you on my 1st fill. Today is day 4 or 5 however you look at it since on last thursday and friday they checked and filled my port. Anyway I know I probably have swelling and was told to stay on liquids for 3 days or until after Sunday. Yesterday I tried to eat 1-2 bites of some soft chicken and it hurt all the way. Started to PB at work. YUK!! I waited for about 4 hours and then ate 3 cherries. Yes I chewed them up very well but again the Pbing started. Not radical but enough to not feel good and be in the bathroom for about 10-15 minutes. I havn't had much water the last few days and feel like I am getting dehydrated. I have a headache, my blood sugar is suprisingly HIGH (usually happens with illness, stress stec) and I have to go to work in an hour!! I am hoping its just some extra swelling and am going to say on liquids only today for sure. I've got to get more fluid in but it also hurts now going down. AAAAAGGGH! Just wanted to whine a little, now I feel better. It's so funny how we all want this "restriction" but then at first when we have it it's very difficult, at least for me, to be ok with it. Any Ideas or suggestions as to how to get the fluids in besides going in the bathroom at work and starting my own IV? Just kidding , there's no way I could hit my own tiny veins anyway if I tried!! I think I am still ok but just need to start sipping on the gatorade as much as I can. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
