    February Surgery ?

    Yes! For the first 2-3 weeks my feet and my whole body was freezing. It’s been almost a month and I have resumed a normal response to the temperature. Sounds like a natural response.

    They told me they were giving me Valium prior to surgery. I don’t even remember going to surgery. I just remember waking up. I’m not happy that they did that. I didn’t get to speak to the surgeon or anesthesiologists before the surgery.

    Hey Lisa. It is frustrating trying to find the balance between water intake and especially protein intake. I haven’t felt the confidence of doing both well. I just started my stage 2 with puréed foods and it’s easier to get the proteins in now. I too am setting a stop watch on my phone for 30 min increments. It is a lot of work but I try to remember that when much is given, much is required. So, I digress and try to focus on reaching my weight loss goals of being healthy, coming off these medications and looking cute in a bathing suit. Lol. I just can’t wait to get past the stages of food and be able to eat normally and reasonably. I understand that my stomach suffered a major transition and it has to make adaptations to heal and become 100% functional again. I wish you luck and everyone else in this new journey. Right now, the road is rocky but I look forward to it smoothing out soon.

    Yes. Crunch the pill before taking. Good luck.

    Congratulation! I would Error on the side of caution And indicate 3 weeks. That way if all is well, you can go back early but if there are complications, you have taken a proactive approach. Good luck!

    I went to a food dr appt the other day and Walmart to pick up a few things and it wipes me out. That false sense of well being took over but I had to remember I just had major surgery and my body is still healing. I too want to go to church tomorrow but think I will error in the side of caution and not push it. Good luck!

    I was sent home with hydracodone/acetaminophen liquid for pain. The pain was bad the first day, but thereafter, I was more sore than anything.

    @ Lisa. This one week difference seemed to go by so fast. I hope you’re fully recovered from the sickness and ready Tomm. I’m excited for you. Good luck in the am.

    I also heard that you should really take the time you have available not to overdo it because it was major surgery, you don’t want to sabotage the process ...major adjustments to a new journey with health and wellness. I personally think that if your incisions haven’t healed on the outside, there certainly are not healed in the inside. Good luck to everyone recovering. Protect your investment...and that is you ❤️
