Well, I got all prepped for surgery, went under and they cut me open and moved stuff around, then found my liver was 2 ½ times the normal size, so they could not safely do the surgery and they closed me up.
I have 5 incisions/stitches and they took a liver biopsy.
He is going to have me on another 6 weeks of a liquid diet and then they will try again, so I will have to reschedule the surgery.
I am sooooo disappointed and not looking forward to another 6 wks of liquid. I had been to the grocery store and stocked up on what I needed post-op.
I was perfect on my diet and lost 24 lbs during the 2 weeks, but I'm a big girl and need more time for my liver to shrink. He also mentioned that in another 6 weeks, if it is still not down enough that he may go ahead and do the sleeve(with my permission of course). Congrats to all my other Sept 11th bandsters that had success.
