    Minor delay

    I have surgery scheduled for Wednesday May 21 to fix my port. Seems the little devil flipped over and is now upside down. I guess, it freaked out when it saw the needle coming for the last fill. Oh well, only a delay, not the end. Have lost 21 pounds so far and only 84 more to go. I have set small goals and have already attained my first. This is something only an overweight person would recognize. I used to have to get someone to tie my shoes for me and now not only can I tie them myself, the bow ends up in the middle of the shoe and not nestled to the inside of the tongue. On to bigger and more substantial goals. As they say in AA... it works if you work it and it is worth it.:thumbup:

    Exercise...post surgery

    I am slow to figure out this site so if I am slow to reply to anyone...please be patient...I love the thought of having a buddy. My best friend close to home is everything I am not. She is 6' tall with curly hair and thin as a pencil. I am undertall, overweight with hair as straight as a pencil. Thanks to everyone, maybe we can exchange emails and check in with each other daily.
  4. Where does everyone get these cool little tickers to record their loss so far???

    Upside down port

    Just came from the doctor who confirmed (by xray) that my port indeed has "flipped" over. I am now waiting on the surgery center to call me back with a date that hopefully be early next week... The doctor said he will go on and do a fill a the time of the surgery (which is not protocol) but since it is not the actual surgery but a repair, he will do it... Anyone else have a port problem??? At least my insurance will cover this, I hope:confused2::confused2::confused2:
