Congratulations! We have a couple of things in common: the beautiful Pacific NW, being in our 50's, and a complication free and virtually pain free surgery! Take good care of yourself now. It's time to put YOU first! Sip, walk, rest, be optimistic about the future!

Glad to hear you are doing well!! Make sure to take the time you need and if you can, stay an extra day in the hospital. Day three was the roughest for me but, I am home now and feel a lot better. Each day gets better! :001_wub:

Congrats! Here's hoping things continue to go well for you.

Since we're kind of neighbors, if you don't mind, where did you have your surgery done?

I am thrilled to hear that your recovery is going so smoothly! This is such an exciting phase to start out in. Enjoy every little victory and if it helps right them down. They are all amazing. For example, last night I was walking in the mall with my boyfriend and we walked by a clothing store for jr's and regular sized women. Tom said to me, "I bet you love that store." I have NEVER been able to shop in a store like that and my boyfriend of almost three years didn't even bat an eye at the fact that I could shop there. It was thrilling!!!! There are so many cool little victories and changes. Enjoy them all.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
