    Losing the weight is easier. Changing your entire life and way of eating - very hard.

    WildcatGirl71 got a reaction from Sosewsue61 in Surgery tomorrow, what to bring or not...   
    I used my Biotene mouth spray the most. I wasn’t allowed mints or crystal light or anything like that in the hospital. Took headphones and an eye mask and didn’t use either.

    Same thing happened to me when I had to go to the ER to get fluids for dehydration. The ER doctor said “why did you choose something so drastic? You’re not that big.” It was very awkward and all I could think to say (mainly because I was shocked it was coming from a medical doctor) was, “well because I qualified for it medically and it was my choice.” I didn’t feel any need to explain any choice I made about my future health and self beyond that point.

    Was no big deal. I held a pillow to my belly just in case but it didn’t hurt.

    Thank you. It’s been really rough these few days without him but I’m staying busy and trying very hard to stay focused so I can avoid the emotional eating. He was my best secret keeper for almost 16 years. [emoji173]️

    Your boss has no right to dictate when you should have your surgery. It may be elective but it’s still medically necessary. If you needed heart bypass surgery, would he tell you to put it off until the fall when it would be easier on him? I agree with your mom. When you and your surgeon have a date, I would submit your time off to HR and make sure all correspondence with your boss has HR copied for your protection. Good luck!
