I've debated adding a thread but my googlefu is weak (and my medication strong.) Just had a septoplasty and a tonsillectomy one week ago today. Tomorrow the nasal splints come out and I'll be allowed to breathe again. No strenuous activity til week two.
Did my very best to stay hydrated and eat everything that I could, but I have lost a LOT of weight. 225 on sunday, 207 yesterday. (For other clydes out there, double face hole disaster catastrophe surgery is a great way to shed a few pounds!) I was riding about 70-100 miles a week before the surgery. Hard efforts when I could. I like to swim. I hate running. I would imagine a focus on stomach friendly light carb replenishment is ok when I can start eating hard foods more frequently. So far living on applesauce and electrolytes.
I assume these things: I am dehydrated. My metabolism is probably wrecked and I assume I've lost 15lbs of hard earned muscle, since I'm still fat as a week full of days.
Biggest concern, I want to eat healthy to replenish my body without stuffing 4590lbs of food right back into me and bloating up and being worthless again. I'm going to try and do some stretching and eating, and maybe swim in the next few days. I'll try some time on the trainer before I hit the streets. I really want the meds out of my system before I run into cars.
Please help me?
