Hey friends! I am one week post 360 L4-5 fusion ~WOOHOO, I had a lot of medical complications~pneumonia, plurasey, 3 blood transfusions. my blood work showed; anemia,low calcium, magnesium,(that's all I can remember). This was all post op so I really want to do all I can to get my healthy again. I eat very healthy~low fat/sugar, whole grains, no meat, organic produce, etc.
My problem is, I have NO appetite. In the hospital, I stayed on the bland/liquid diet for several days (my choice) chicken broth, jello (yuck) pudding, but ate very little, I tried so hard, by the end I enjoyed scrambled egg whites, a bit of pasta,
Now that I am home, I get hungry and I really do want to eat, but I just can't eat very much. Like a fourth of a severing.
Has this happened to anyone one else? I know I need to eat and eat well, I really am trying so hard, but I'm struggling! Open to any ideas! Thanks "spineys" ya'll are the best!
