  1. Thank you so much for your response. It’s what I needed to move forward. Now if my mom an stay stable this week, i think I’ll be fine. One more question, did you tell extended family members about your surgery? I told my daughter and son and both think I should try harder to loose weight on my own. I have not said anything to any of my siblings as I really don’t want their advice and options. My husband is very supportive and feels it important that I get the weight off. We have so many future travel plans as we move into retirement.
  2. I am scheduled December 12th to have my lap band removed and revision to RNY. I leave in May for Europe for wine cruise in Bordeaux France and then an additional 3 weeks in Spain and Portugal. I would like to enjoy some wine and tastes of on the various foods we will be served. I will be traveling with 2 other couples. I need help understanding where I will be in 6 months. Can I eat and drink just about anything within the small servings guidelines? Being able to keep up with the other couples and being sick and tired of being so heavy and out of shape is my driving me to do this now. The other issue I have is that my mom is being referred to hospice. She is 95 and not sure if she has days or weeks left. How long will it take me to recover from surgery so I can get back to visiting her. She lives near me. Thanks in advance for any comments.
