    The surgery does actually effect hormones, so that could be it. But have no fear the journey gets easier/better with each day that passes.

    Its an emotional time, my support group said that many have feelings of overwhelming emotion after the surgery, your not alone, and soon enough you will be better, its a daily walk for a life time of change, stay strong and you will be fine. I have cried about three times since the surgery, the first being the feeling of completion, second was a feeling of loss in losing a part of myself I couldn't control, and the third was the joy of seeing myself get stronger each day. I am 16 days out and I went to the gym for the first time since surgery today, I felt like I was lazing off... only to be sent home by my sleeve buddy who had her surgery last year, as she told me this morning "you have had a major surgery, let your body heal at its own rate" "when its time, then you can do all the things you want without fear of complications." So, I say the same to you.. let your body heal and let your hubby help you, everyday you will be better and better

    I started a 'secret' May 2012 Sleevers group on Facebook, if anyone wants to join me on there. Figure we can all keep in touch & chat with each other!
    It is secret group, which means that nobody can see the group, nobody can see the members & nobody can see the posts.
    I know some of us haven't told all our facebook friends & may want to keep it that way for now. So made it secret.
    Now to add you, you have to be my friend, so if you want to friend me then look up Sharon Ivanauskas, also send me a message saying you want to joint he May 2012 sleevers group, so I know who you are!

    With all the crap in them......why would you want to drink a soda? Plenty of healthy choices on things to drink. Use your surgery as a chance to get a clean break from that stuff.
