I am 3 weeks post bmx. I am off the painkillers but still on the antibiotics. The drains are gone and the holes have healed. I still am nauseous every day. I have no appetite at all. Before this, I had a normal, healthy appetite. Now I can't bear to think of food much less eat any. Has anyone else had this? I didn't have this issue with the lumpectomy. Does anyone have suggestions for feeling better?
I had to ask my partner to help me with suppositories, because I couldn't reach anywhere. I quit the pain pills after the first week because of the "lack thereof." Dr. Oz says you have to poop! :-)
Also get some fiber so you keep regular. A fiber bar is helpful or maybe oatmeal with raisins.
It is probably the side effects from the anesthesia. Eat a clean diet meaning mostly vegetables and fruits. Read about alkaline diet.
I am finally off everything and am starting to feel hungry again. Thank goodness! And thank you all for the information. It was helpful to hear I wasn't alone and get suggestions from you all..hugs.
I felt the same way too.For a while I only depend on Ensure for my nutrition,but after 3 months after my chermo treatment I had my appetite back.I'm now on the Letrozolne pills &I have put back all the 15lbs. that I've lost back & I'm putting on some weight.Hope you're feeling better.
