P.S. tomorrow will be one week without Pop. It hasn't been a problem. It is all the food and the continuous weight gain (ooops). My brain thinks that because I'm having surgery- I can eat what I want. Totally backwards I know- but it does. So this 6 month for insurance has really done nothing positive for me. Oh well :)

Waiting is the worst. Have to complete my third nut appt and wait for the advocate to file in early to mis september. Spending my time having food funerals for all the bad things that I love to eat, and will hopefully never eat again.

All this talk of Endoscopes and EKG's- I don't think I have to do any of that but if for some reason I'm mistaken- yet better have a hammer ready to hit me over the head becuse I won't go down quietly ;). Good luck to you both!

I didn't have to for approval, but since this is my first surgery in years, they just want to know I am heathy for the procedure.

I hear you about losing the weight. I saw the surgeon on 7/2 and he wants me to lose another 10 lbs before surgery on 9/5. I haven't lost a pound...if anything i gained 4lbs on vacation and am thankfully back to where i was before. Now i just need to get my exercising in and maybe get the 10lbs off..good luck to you!!

Off topic September peeps- but how on earth did I become an advanced member so quickly and some of of with titles even more intriguing?

Back to topic. I'm sick of waiting. Seriously- days go by so slow- and I don't and won't have a date yet until end of august and even that's not a guarantee with the games insurance companies play.

The end........ For now

Justine

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
