    January 2020 Surgery Folks

    My surgery was on January 21st. Since starting the program I've lost 122.2 lbs. That averages about 3.3lbs a week and 15.27 lbs a month. I'm not sure what the average loss is supposed to be like. I had the RNY and started at 344. I'm 221.8 now. What shocked me the most is how much it improved my breathing!! I had such horrible lungs before and was always coughing and hacking up a lung, complete with having to run to the bathroom to throw mucus up. I don't think I've coughed more than a dozen times since surgery though. That enough would have made the surgery worth it! When did you guys who have been through this already think about getting plastic surgery? Do you think it's wise to wait until you hit your goal weight or does there come a point where it's common to go ahead and have it removed before then? Just curious.........
  2. I started at 330 first consultation (highest weight was 380). Just before surgery (I had rny on January 21st), I weighed in at 307. All of that lost on the pre-op liquid diet. There is a small part of me that wonders if they really gave me a tiny pouch tummy, because it's still very surreal. First Dr visit is this Thursday when hopefully I'll be down some and can get this hateful jp drain out!! Sent from my moto g(6) (XT1925DL) using BariatricPal mobile app

    January 2020 Surgery Date

    Well it's been 6 days since surgery. I finally got a real shower Sunday which was great, but it irritated the Dickens out of my drain hole. Now sore again and the two incisions/sutures where the hole is is so ITCHY. driving me bonkers. I can't get it it because of the gauze and dressings ugh. In other news, I'm a little behind where I should be getting fluids and protein in. I hope I can get up to higher amounts soon. I know I'm probably already dehydrated, but I'm doing the best I can and just haven't been able to drink more yet without getting chest pressure.

    Non Scale Victories

    2. I went hiking for the first time since my surgery on a Mountain I have hiked a few times before. This isn’t a huge climb, but has about 2000ft of elevation gain over about 2 miles with a few very steep sections. In the past this mountain has wooped my butt and taken me about 2 hours to reach the top of. I am usually soaked from sweat by the time I reach the top due to the effort of dragging my big butt up there. It also has always left me soar for days afterward due to the weight putting pressure on my joints when coming back down. This time however I was able to reach the top of the mountain in just over an hour while hardly breaking a sweat the whole time. Then coming back down I could immediately feel the difference on my legs. The lack of pressure on my knees and the softer foot falls were an amazing difference over before. Yes!!!!!! This is one of the biggest goaIs I have. I want to go hiking so bad. When I was a bit younger I used to love being outdoors and just walking in the woods, even though I was still fat and couldn't do much. As I got older though even that was a hard thing to do. I cannot wait to get back out there and walk some trails or just pay in the woods. Such a country girl. Lol. Sent from my moto g(6) (XT1925DL) using BariatricPal mobile app

    Haven't noticed anything but my eye Dr did tell me that your vision changes as your a1c changes. He wouldn't give me a new prescription for this very reason. Sent from my moto g(6) (XT1925DL) using BariatricPal mobile app

    Support Garments

    I got my Spanx like support wear from Catherine's. They are a tiny bit pricey but the quality is great. Sent from my moto g(6) (XT1925DL) using BariatricPal mobile app

    Just saying hello.

    Congrats. I'm home after two nights in ICU. We had a few complications during surgery. All in all though it turns out if I hadn't had surgery I would've most likely been dead within the next few years. My liver was massive and well into fatty liver disease and I was borderline kidney disease. Luckily both are reversible with weight loss. So turned out to be necessary in more than one way.

    Had rny Tuesday morning. I had my first little poo today but I'm still feeling constipated. Didn't realize that could happen in a liquid diet but yep. A lot of pressure went away after the little poo so that was great. I'm still unbelievable sore where the drain is and in my shoulder. Belly incisions not that bad. I think I'd feel pretty much alright if it wasn't for the dang jp drain. I haven't been able to get all my protein in but honestly I'm still just working on walking every hour which is getting better. Sent from my moto g(6) (XT1925DL) using BariatricPal mobile app

    Second day in ICU. They had complications and had to cut off the top half of my larger stomach and I had a leak. I'm not having nausea or vomiting and the invitation sites are door but not unbearable. What's killing me is the drain and my shoulder. I hear shoulder pain and issues before surgery and being in the Jesus pose on the hard table for five hours just killed it. Having to stay at least one more night and keep the drain in for a week ugh. Sent from my moto g(6) (XT1925DL) using BariatricPal mobile app
