1st Post-Op Appointment Shiz – 02/04/2016

AKA needless information..?

Doctors Appointment Information:

  • Initial wake up weight: 129.4# (132.6# at MD)
  • Need Dr. Linderman to call in my Effexor refill, because Amy is cray and she needs her OCD pills..
  • Ask Dr. Linderman about my sleep deprivation and that my brains doesn’t “turn off” at night – it is just not normal to wake up at230to write “hot dog buns” on my next day grocery list…. #NotNormal. Call Dr. Linderman to see about Lorazepam, if necessary.
  • Weigh myself daily and if uncomfortable in my abdomen and carrying too much fluid, call. But MyChart Monday about my abdomen drain.. Yes drain? No draining? Schedule before Thursday’s ultrasound if I feel I’ll need a tap… A day/or diuretics adjustments…
  • Go take next Blood Panel Wednesday in Hillcrest
