    April 2019 Surgeries!

    Today was weigh in day and woohoo 199.4. I have not weighed this for over 7 years!!! I am so excited (if you can't tell) Food is getting easier, I still am having a problem with chicken and eggs. I keep trying chicken but it just tastes off. I bought those little street taco shells and they are great, I can almost eat a whole one (corn) so I feel like I am actually eating a full meal. I still am struggling with eating slow. I have to remind myself to take breaks. I hope everyone else is doing well.

    April 2019 Surgeries!

    Just a quick update, I am 19 days out from surgery and yesterday and today are the first days I don’t have any pain. The only pain I was experiencing was under my left rib like a pulling sensation, dr said it was my pouch healing. Tuesday I start regular food, I have been on soft food for this week so no more puréed!! I’ve had shrimp, salmon and ham with a pickle no skin. Omg it tasted awesome lol. I am looking forward to the 9th when I can start exercising. Water has been fine and so has taking the vitamins. Good luck to anyone who is next in line!! HW 251 SW 238 CW 220

    April surgeries?

    Sorry yes everything went great had surgery on April 9th I was terrified about being put under, when I was ready to be brought back they gave me something to relax me and I was out lol. Woke up in some pain, I had the morphine pump which was the only thing that did not agree with me, it made me nauseous and very out of it, I stopped that at 2am and switched to norco. After that it was sooo much better, drinking was fine, I spent two nights in the hospital, came home and day 3 post op I started puréed food, everything has been good not much pain only when I turn a certain way I feel it in my left side where the dr said he did most of the work. I did not experience any gas pains. For anyone like me who was afraid of being put under it is like everyone says your asleep and then you wake up and it’s over lol not as terrifying as I thought. Good luck to the rest of you that have upcoming surgeries! HW 251 SW 238 CW 238 I weighed myself when I got home from the hospital I will weigh myself again on Tuesday.

    Fears wls

    I was terrified of being under, on the day of surgery I knew this was what I wanted so i touched it out, the anesthesiologist gave me something to relax me and i fell asleep when I woke up I was in recovery. It’s been fairly easy so far no gas pains so far I just walk walk and walk. I’m only taking pain meds at night, sorry surgery was on April 9th. And as far as 20 years out, my mother and mother-in-law had the bypass in 2001 and 2003, both have maintained they’re weight and are healthy. One of the reasons I had the bypass, I watched my grandmother die at 69 from obesity related diseases and I did not want my children or grandchildren to endure the same pain. Everyone’s path is different just don’t do something because you are afraid of the unknown good luck in your journey! HW 251 SW 238 CW 238

    Doing well today finally peeing ok, no bm and I have not passed gas yet but I am walking laps. I have eaten some broth the jello was too sweet. I’m taking hydrocodone for pain it’s not bad. All of you who have the preop diet follow it, that was the first thing they told my husband, he could tell I followed my diet and had no problems because I did. I was so scared for surgery but honestly it was as everyone else said not bad. Good luck to everyone who’s surgery is coming up!

    And we can’t have baby food either, but the mush will be just like baby food! I bought some frozen cauliflower there’s a couple recipes for mashed cauliflower and chicken and avocado. I just hope I can get past the texture.

    I know right and I have never heard of one of those blenders. I’m assuming it purées? I’m wondering how well my blender will purée chicken and I did get chicken In a can which I have never tried before. I’m sure I will be tired of baby food in no time though lol!!
