Surgery date 11/16



Recommended Posts

My surgery was 11/16 I was very nauseous after but didn't throw up. I slept most of the afternoon. I woke up at 2am and went for a lap around the ward. At 7am they took me for my leak test. Everything came out fine so I was sent home by noon. I'm not in a lot of pain However it is painful when I drink. I am on clear liquid until Tuesday when I can start adding Protein. broth and Water go down pretty good but Jello and popsicles burn my stomach. I've been pretty active today. Went for a little walk around the block, started a load of laundry and washed dishes. When hubby gets home, we will do two laps around the block.

I had surgery on the same day! My Clear Liquids are for 7 days and I’m already fantasizing about the yoghurt I’m going to have Friday morning. My surgery was at 7:30 and by 9:30 I was back in my room. At noon I went for my first walk around the ward which was tiring but I made it. My Dr requires that you walk every 2 hours for about 10mins. The only thing really bugging me is the pain just above my belly button incision. The pain isn’t on the site, just a bit higher up, I hope that it will pass soon because I want to start walking on the treadmill on Friday.
I also did some laundry yesterday which I pretty much avoid doing, seems like the surgery is turning me into a good partner, lol.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
