It's cold enough outside that it's cold inside. We won't be doing walkies today because of it, but hopefully tomorrow will be less arctic-intrusion and we can walk more.

In the meantime I'm inside, and trying to have a vicodin-free day. So far, so good.

Okay, for a moment of weirdness: I don't know how to be hungry anymore.

Vicodin makes Dave puke blood. It's not pretty.

Re: sideways to topic and oversharing to boot!
I can't think of a time that "puking blood" and "oooh, pretty!" would go together in my mind... no, wait, I can.

So is Dave allergic, or is it a stomach thing?

Incidentally, this is a liquid hydrocodone that's easier on the stomach than the pill form, which is why I have it. Much better than the morphine.

Good question. I don't know tha answer; he had it for his wisdom teeth, and it was Not Good.

I know that in large doses it can cause nausea. I was allowed up to 30 MG at a shot, I started with 15 and brough it down to 10 to help avoid that, as vomiting for me would be a baaaad thing.

Wisdom teeth can be a bad time. I got pretty lucky myself.

*looks at your curiously*
It will happen.

But for now, your little tummy-pouch is small enough, that to have enough fuel, you have to constantly graze, I bet (umm... does drinking stuff count as grazing....? Perhaps.). Does the difference in food feel weird? How about how the rest of your body feels?

Re: *looks at your curiously*
I'm still tring to figure everything out. The constant drinking of water probably contributes a lot to the full feeling.
I'm also trying Special K Protein water.

I'm keeping the remainder of the liquid vicodin for emergencies and bad days, because I'm gnorf enough to know that progress rarely doesn't have setbacks.

Not a cruel lickin'.

My sex drive is pretty much at zero. I suspect it will be for a while.

I won;t promise a lickin', but if you don't start eating soon AND all the time, I'm gonna kick your ass!

Hope that helps.

I'm eating, but on a schedule. There isn't really hunger.

There is desire-- I could dig some gyros. Just can't eat 'em.

So, is the problem the food you are eating, you don't desire it?

Ask your doctor, I'm sure it's been seen before with that type of surgery.

It's more that I'm just not hungry anymore.

It will eventually come back, but it's gonna take weeks. And it's a different kind of hunger.

Hell, there was a time I could chow an entire pizza by myself. Now I think a single slice of pepperoni would probably make me gag (there is actually a name for it).

Then again, my stomach is currently smaller than a golf ball.
