Surgery is scheduled for June 2. In one week I will be having my revision surgery. Hopefully all in one surgery they will remove my Adjustable Gastric Band (AGB) and do the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG). AGB to VSG in TJ MX.

It is a little tougher recovery (well, I had hernia repair also) but worth it all!

I am also a band to sleeve revision and have not once ever regretted. It is such a totally different experience from the band, you will love it. Good luck and let us know how things go.

POSTED this on band2sleeve.com today

1 week surgiversary!

Just been doing that resting & recovering thing. Some walking, I need to do more. Instead I spend most of my time working on computers or cell phones. The tech junkie was not removed apparently.

Today for the first time the scale read something lower than my day of surgery weight. Or what the forums call SW (Surgery Weight). I'm down like 2 pounds. 2 freaking pounds after only liquids for a week! ok ok ok - no panic - just a process.

So in the things I SHOULD be doing column is walking frequently. No checkmark there.

and in the things I SHOULD NOT be doing column is weighing myself every day. Big ole checkmark there.

So for the "should" points, I'm not doing that great. But hey, I'm not a big "should" person. I guess I NEED to reframe that a bit so I don't start lumping my positive uplifting behaviors into a guilt basket.

ok, enough pop psych for today. Back to raw fact reporting.

Most pain is gone at this point. This is good, because the pain medicine is also gone at this point. The remaining discomfort is a huge continuous headache. I'm going to blame a combination of surgery effects/dehydration/low blood sugar for that.

So it is WWW for me - Water, Walking, and .. and... Without computers? I really wanted to get a cool 3W acronym going - a bit of a stretch. Any suggestions?
