Well here is my update.
I feel like I'm about to explode. Literally. My tummy feels soooo tight. I think I have a 10 pounder in there - I'm only half kidding.
Putting on sock, especially nylons has become a major athletic event. Swim and track workouts are nothing compared to the ten minutes it takes me to do this task.
I am happy to say that I do have ankles. I didn't for a week or two. They puffed up like an elephant's feet. I would look down at them an have to remind myself that they really were my appendages. For some reason they are back to normal, well, almost normal.
But, as they say, onward and outward. Or maybe it's something slightly different ;)
