Haven't told anyone



Recommended Posts

Thank you for responding with some positive information I can consider instead of name calling. There's always one in the crowd who really does need a net which is part of the reason I'm not even telling people. I only posted looking for suggestions on the best way to get home without telling anybody I had surgery. I am a responsible person and have no intention of driving down the road high on painkillers. I'm glad to hear things went well for you and you were able to get yourself home safely and uneventfully. I am earnestly praying the same for myself.

I was told that we had to have an actual person take us home, no Uber, lyft, bus, cab, etc. Can you confirm with the hospital?

Maybe you could make friends with a local Uber and have them act like your friend who is taking you home.

Also, they pretty much made me take a pain pill before I was released. I didn't need it and I didn't want it, but I didn't really feel like I had much of a choice.

Thanks for the info. I kinda been thinking of those same things. I've also been giving Uber a second look. I'm just not sure right now exactly what I am going to do, but for now I'm going keep my secret.

Wow, I didn't know they would actually kinda force that stuff on you. Maybe as long as it's non narcotic that would be okay. I guess I'll have to have several options ready and available to me whenever I get ready to cross that bridge which I hope will be soon. Thanks everyone for all the advice.

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
