I woke up so hungry this morning and anxious because my partner has gone back to work now until the weekend so I am left to look after the kids on my own. Not only this, it is my first day back at work and I am kicking myself for not taking another week off.
I really do not feel ready to go back to work, it's tiring enough as it is let alone working full time and being a mum but oh well, I'm sure I'll manage, I don't really have a choice but to manage!
Today has been one stressful, tiring and extremely hungry day. I'm not sure I have a band in me now as I am so hungry now, it seems as the days go on I'm becoming more and more hungry?
I have booked my first fill in with my aftercare nurse Sally! Oh my god she is as mad as a box of frogs and so bonkers, I can't wait to meet her in person she is hilarious!
I can't fault Healthier Weight I really can't. Sally text's me every day without fail, she seems like she genuinely cares about me it's so lovely, I feel like I have known her forever and I can go to her with any worry.
Speaking of worry, she sent me to the doctors this afternoon because my legs are absolutely killing me. I slept awful last night and was crying with pain. It feels like it's restless legs but they hurt so bad and have shooting pains in them.
Sally wanted me to go to my GP to check for DVT (blood clots or something) to be on the safe side so I did.
Doctor was slightly baffled and started reading books and stuff off the internet which I found bizarre?! She couldn't work out what the pain was, she said my legs look fine and I'm a good girl for wearing my special hospital socks at night still but she was none the wiser as to what this mysterious pain was.
I told her that when I kept googling my symptoms Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) kept coming up but she brushed it off. I then said well doesn't that (RLS) tend to happen when we are lacking salt or something specific in our diet, it was then that she realised what I was getting at. I told her that before my surgery I led a very high salt intake diet I literally would cover my food in it, she said it is likely to be why I have the leg pain as I have gone from lots to none so quickly, she also said it could be circulation because I am breathing from my chest at the minute since I had my op and not my lungs so it could be a little bit of hyperventilation also. She showed me some breathing technics, told me to drink more Bovril and sent me on my way! So random!
I have found that wearing my socks at night really help my legs so I'm hoping the pain passes.
