Also lost seven pounds this morning (10 total since surgery/one week). The drug I'm on for the rash does increase your appetite, so that might be why I had been feeling hunger in the last week.
I didn't mention in last night's post, but the surgeon took me off two of my three diabetes meds off the bat, with the last one to be taken "if my blood sugar isn't too low". My sugar has been in the low-normal(-for-diabetes) range, so I've been taking it, but the drug for the rash raises your blood sugar, so maybe once I'm done with that I'll be off all diabetes drugs.
Life is much, much better when it doesn't feel like you want to claw off more than 90% of your skin!
