I know everybody calls it mushies, the word seems so emasculating - so I'll call it smashed.
I expected to go from clear liquids to full liquids, but the doc said that my progress has been good, I am not soar or in pain. How great is it to not have to eat a fruit-flavored something.
Because of the proximity, I was able to hook up with a friend after my follow up appointment today. Mashed potatoes and broccoli cheese soup, food with texture - nice!
Considering the pain factor, I'm at little to none. I feel the port from time to time, such as sitting forward, but it is not painful. Neither is coughing or laughing which was a bit painful in the first few days.
What is the key to the recovery? Check out the next post, I'm conducting a bit of a survey.
Thank you for the comments everybody.
