Pointless post about retaining water.

So im on some pretty heavy duty pain meds after my surgery and ive noticed how bloated and swolen I am. Lol I have cankles, and for whatever ungodly reason ive gained 4 pounds since monday.

Does anyone know how I can try to "release" the fluids ive been retaining? I only pee maybe twice a day, even tho I drink at least 9 cups of water a day.

Im on the meds until the pain subsides, which could be awhile since it has only decreased from a 10 to an 8 since monday... Dh has been awesome and massages my legs, ankles and feet when they get overly swollen.... Other than pregnancy, ive never had this much swelling!

I hadnt mentioned this in pp's, but im pretty sure i'll be able to quit smoking, too. Im not allowed to smoke at all for 3 weeks, and so far havent touched one. When I sit outside with dh, the smell of his make me nauseous! Yay!

So anyways, this is my pointless post for the day...gotta go get ds ready for.school, so i'll be checking periodically. :o)

Hope everyone is having a beautimous friday!
