11 Days Post Surgery

Recommended Posts

This is my first post. i am 11 days out and down 21 lbs. since surgery. Very happy about that. Overall I would say I feel good, but I do not have much ptience with myself. At my post-op visit I had to be reminded that Not only did I have an extensive bariatric surgery, but I also had an extrnsive hernia repair. So I need to give myself a break. My biggest issue is the drain. Hopefully it will be removed in 3 days.

Congrats on your surgery and your pounds loss.

I had a fairly easy time healing after surgery and in some ways this can hard because we tend to forget we just had major surgery. I am guilty of over doing it a little during the first week post-op.

I wish you continued success! I hoe the drain comes out soon!

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
