Surgery is done!

Well I had my TT on the 26th. It went well but I wasn't expecting there to be this much pain I only had to stay in the hospital overnight so that was good but the pain meds they gave me through my IV caused my vein to become inflamed and swollen so have to keep an eye on that. I am bruised down my chest and to my shoulders (Im a redhead so I tend to bruise easily). I started on 100mcg of synthroid the day after surgery so I am keeping an eye out for signs of hypo because it would be devistating for me to gain weight! I am supposed to take tums 4 times a day for my calcium levels but can't have sugar. Does anyone know of a calcium supplement that dosent have sugar?

Re: Surgery is done!

Glad to hear you are done with your surgery. I don't know about sugar free supplements but I'm sure your pharmacist can help with that. Here's to clear sailing for you from now on.
