Ugly Bruises

So day 5... here come the bruises. That I do remember. With my gallbladder the bruising was instant here its not 5 days after surgery the bruising starts? that's pretty much my pain now and a little where my port is. I haven't used any pain meds at all today... i'm pretty sure the swelling has gone down as I can eat a whole pudding cup and not feel full... i'm down 11 lbs though.. I go back to work on Thursday and not looking forward to it!!!

Day 3 post opt

Good afternoon everyone. Surprisingly today i feel great. I got up and took a shower and got to take all of the bandages off! pretty exciting. I had my gall bladder out in May of 2012 which was laproscopic and the surgeon sealed my incisions with glue and they never healed right. I asked if Dr Nirmul could go in and fix it and he did. I am very happy he actually listened to what MY needs were. I am very pleased with him. I am 100% better than my last laproscopic surgery. I am impressed with how everything was handled. I also went through true results in Phoenix and they have been wonderful! My hubby and i decided once i'm healed we are going to join a rec center near by. I have always wanted to join just never had the motivation. Well all my excuses are out the door!. I know it says no strenuous exercise for 4 weeks do you really think 4 weeks is a good time. For me i think it would take longer. I assume it would just depend on how you are healing and what you yourself are able to achieve! Oh and i'm down another 3 LBS.. Weird i think it just may be the C02 leaving! anyways 3 lbs is 3 lbs you got to start somewhere!

Steps 1,2,3 and recovery

Hey everyone. My name is Kelly and I wans to share my journey with you. Please free to question, comment, and give advise.Step One: to have surgery or not to have surgery. I did a lot of research about the lap band before I had it done. I listed my pros and cons of why I would want it and why I wouldn't. The saddest part is that my biggest cons were no buffets or pigging out on junk food! I decided right then and there I loved my life before any buffets. Step Two the consultation. I went to have my consultation done and to my surprise I found out that I had a hiatal hernia which actually was in my favor for insurance wise. I had been complaining to my husband about how much heartburn/acid reflux I had been having and popping tums like no tomorrow. My decision was made I am having the surgery. Step three the surgery. I set up the surgery for 3/21/13 at 5:45 am. Right after the surgery I was uncomfortable obviously but I was able to get some pain medicine. I was able to go home. Day one I got to walk around a little bit and slept for most of the time took my meds as needed. Today Day two. I woke up this morning feeling great I could already tell the pressure in my abdomen was going down later on in the day my incision areas were getting a bit soar. I was able to go grocery shopping today. What would usually take me 30 min to do took me about 2 hours but I got my walking in. I am ready to start my journey to become ME again so I think the best way to get there is by blogging! Anyone else recently had surgery?
