Good luck today! I think you have a good idea updating this thread and keeping yourself accountable. I am blogging in a different app about my daily Vitamins intake and have a main goal to take my Vitamins continuously for 30 days and shorter goals for 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, and 4 weeks. Hope your surgery goes well and you recover without any complications.

@@Vombatidae I am excited to see how things go for you. I saw my surgeon for my initial consult this week, intending to go for GB, but he suggested a DS instead, so I am intent on learning as much as I can!

In recovery. A little hard to focus on tasks. Pain is under control. Feel like I need to pee, but can't.

Don't worry it will come. The anesthesia can create brain fog. They had to catheterize me for the first day and then I wasn't until later on the second day that I could pee on my own. Your whole body is trying to wake up slowly. I'm glad you are doing well. Tomorrow should be better.

Radiology did the barium leak test about an hour ago, things looked fine. They insisted I drink more Fluid than my new stomach capacity. Major cramping. This is when the nurse decides to distract me by talking about Italian food. Sigh. But I am now allowed to sip tiny cups of Water. After 37 hours of not being allowed to even rinse and spit, this is wonderfull.

Lots of walking yesterday and today.About 300 yds, x8. Had some minor issues w/cramping, so keeping me another night. Did have a runny BM; that helped. I was dreading that, glad to have it behind me, as it were. (TMI? too bad, you are in the wrong thread.)

I stayed 5 days instead of 4. Had a slight fever. It's better they're being safe than sorry with you. Good on them.

Discharged, now staying in hotel across the street. Only 35 miles to home, but this gives me a little more rest before I take on the kids.

Standing, sitting, etc. Are m uch easier today.

Home today, it's been busy. No pain meds at all today, there are twinges but nothing too serious. Been dealing with drain management and Lovenox injections. Not a big deal, but a nuisance I wasn't expecting. Kids did actually did some work around the house, so that's a bonus. Finding it tough to get enough Water and Protein in, but doing my best.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.

      Well yesterday I went bra shopping. Again. I could put pleats in the cups of the new ones I’d bought just three months ago so it was back to the department store. Foolishly I wore a dress so spent an hour in the fitting room wearing only my knickers as two fitters (yes it took two of them) ran back & forth with different bras to try. Those full length mirrors & fluorescent lights are super unflattering on the loose skin. Yikes! 
      Of course I’m between cup sizes & deflated at the top so only two of the most expensive brands around would fit me. At least a couple I bought were on sale.  Sigh. 
      So I’ve gone from a 18F to a 14F to now a 10FF/G.  At least I’m in two hook bras again and not the clumsy three & four hook ones. They are soooo much prettier (all lacy & fine mesh - ooh la la). 
      I really need to buy new knickers too - those old size 16 boy legs are like loose legged shorts now - but I’m just not sure what size. Plus after buying the new bras I can’t afford to buy knickers yet lol!
