hello everyone im new here
how s everyone doing?
i have never in my life reached out for support on a website before.
i admit i need the support!
its funny because ive been looking at alot of your posting from my andriod phone for about a week now.
i wasnt able to sign in tho to make a profile until now thank god.
you all's post helped me so much even when i was going to crack and cry.
so my surgery day was april 30th 2012 the day of surgery i weighed 384
and now im 365 i feel good and happy.
so im 12 days out of surgery, that monday morning the day of my surgery i arrived at the hospital at 730 am
with my husband next thing i know 5 minutes to nine the doctors were preparing to put me to sleep for surgery.
its crazy because me and my mom had previously argued and we havent spoke for a couple of weeks before my surgery date
i remember her saying to me be brave and thats what i did exactly that day and im still doing that today being brave.
i had my hubbie call her that morning to let my mom know i was going under anesthesia despite our arguement because it was the right thing to do.
so they discharged me wednesday night around 8pm i wanted to go home so bad. i had no complcations no blod clots no leaking thank god
the only thing that the nurses bugged me about was eating. i couldnt eat in the hospital i could only drink liquids geez that was incredibly hard for me i could eat soft gels also thats jello but they call it soft gels and i loved the powerade but i could only sips stuff.
so the told me to just stay hydrated and thats what im doing. i dont wanna write to much so ill post again and i wont be a stranger hug to everyone
on this site say hi dont be a stranger and thank you for listening to me love deeppurplequeen
