    No drain or catheter when I woke up. Just my IV.

    Jump away! I LOVED HUMC! No complaints about them whatsoever. My room was a double, but I was alone in it most of the time. I think it's actually a gastro flooor, but most of the other patients I encountered were there for weight loss surgery. As far as what I brought, "Lil Miss Diva" has a great little checklist posted that you can print, was really helpful. Chapstick, my phone & charger was all I really used though. The gown was decent, I didn't need a robe. The slipper socks were nice, didn't need to bring out my slippers either. I brought a heating pad for pain, but I forgot all about it. Their pillow was kind of flat, I might have brought one from home had I known. That was it, reallly. Your not there long enough to really need much, especially if you have someone there with you, they can always grab anything you might need. I didn't ask to shower, although there was one in the bathroom. Good luck, you're gonna do great! I would def do it again.

    Yes, that doesn't surprise me! Just stay on top of her, who cares if she gets annoyed, she needs to do her job! I kept ringing her extension all day until she picked up. I don't think she ever once actually called me back when I left her a voicemail. I feel pretty good, thanks for asking! No nausea, no vomiting at all since the surgery. I started phase 2 this past Friday. Haven't been hungry at all. My biggest problem was getting used to not swallowing air when I eat & drink. The air kind of gurgles around & is uncomfortable. That is much better now though. already down 25 lbs as of Friday.

    Disgusted By Others Eating

    The reason I feel disgusted over this is because people don't get help for what is such an obvious problem for some. If you're unhappy, and most fat people are, take steps to change it! Whether it's a diet change, or WLS, you have to do SOMETHING to make changes for the better. I have little sympathy for those who won't take steps to help themselves. Life is too short.

    Serious Question?

    I'm on day 12 and nothing but liquid so far. Also, NEVER trust a fart.
  9. So far, so good! Seems to be going a little better. Thanks!
