I’m on the other side now



Recommended Posts

My RNY surgery was yesterday around. 10 am EST. So far I’m doing pretty well. I have had little to no nausea, and I am doing fine keeping liquids down. I had a hard time coming out on anesthesia and my blood pressure dropped pretty low, but everything is back to normal now. My incisions are by far the most painful part, and getting in and out of bed is really not fun. I’ll be more glad I did this in a few weeks when I’m not as exhausted and in pain.

Apparently there was a problem with my liver when they did surgery. It was very fatty still and bled more than it should have. They almost had to give me a blood infusion. So scary, I’m glad I didn’t know that until today. I must not be in too bad of shape though bc they sent me home this evening.

Today I’m just very sore at my incision sites. I am envious of anyone who went through this with little to no pain. That hasn’t been my experience. I’m not having any problems with eating or drinking, though.

I had mine yesterday, had a little pain after I woke up and that’s it, don’t have any pain at all the only complaints I have a left shoulder pain hurts could be an air coughs up in my shoulder , been walking ever since I’m home already and feel great! Drinking liquids it’s ok but I really thought It would be really bad hearing a lot of people here I was a bit scared. Thank God I feel awesome!!

Today was definitely better than yesterday, and I assume tomorrow will be better than today. The incision pain is th biggest problem I’ve had, I’m doing fine with eating and drinking and have had no nausea.

      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.  💪
