Any Surgery twins for May 21st ?



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. So as some of you may already know, I was scheduled for surgery May 14th but that was a dubbb my team had to cancel my RNY and now I’m scheduled for Monday the 21st so I lost all my tweensies. I’d really like some new ones to compare my progress with. And yes I’m totally stalking everyone for May 21st but In a good way [emoji28]

Definitely! I’ll for sure be in my room trying to text y’all all the details no matter how woozy I feel from my anesthesia [emoji23][emoji23] Everyone else who went into surgery the past two weeks just left me hanging [emoji30]

How’s your liquid diet going?

My doctor didn’t require a liquid diet. He put me on a high Protein, low carb diet that I started Saturday. However, I’ve been nervous about just liquids after surgery so I’m doing 2 meals liquid and a small dinner. I’ve lost 6 pounds so far. Will probably try to do all liquid the last few days. I’m scared it will be really hard after surgery if I don’t. How’s yours going?

You are so lucky! I’m doing horrible I keep eating Protein. I had plain eggs for Breakfast and I want a slice of salmon for dinner. I know it has no carbs and low in cal & fat but I feel bad because that’s not what my doctor instructed. The extra week was what killed me after I had been doing well for 6 days on my liquid diet then suddenly the call that it was pushed. I sure as hell wasn’t doing a 3 week liquid so I broke it and came back on it but the hunger and cravings are back like day one. I’m thinking of doing a laxative and a diuretic the day before see if I can cleanse myself and get rid of excess Water but I’m afraid of being dehydrated [emoji30]

You’re doing better than me.. I totally gave myself permission to eat Protein. I’ve lost 10lbs so far so I deff have some progress to show for but if my surgeon knew how I been tweaking my diet he’ll prob cut my head off [emoji87]

      Uh oh! Something happened to Matty this week. I was in a local Wawa (think east coast convenience store) and a gorgeous girl ran smack into me while I was grabbing a grape Propel - just couldn't deal with anymore water today. She was texting and walking ... okay, yeah, this missed me as Gen X'er. Well she looked up at me and flashed me one helluva smile. I was feeling pretty good that day so it was time to bring out some game, "So you know I can't let a gorgeous girl who crashes into me go without getting her phone number." LOL! She turned beet red, asked for my phone and sent herself a text message from mine. She said, "Because you men never call ..." I don't know quite what I was thinking but figured it would be one heck of a ride. What is it with me and short girls? I seem to attract them and I don't honestly care about height. She's all of 5'4". I knew she was young but it didn't occur to me how young. What did I just get myself into?
      I told myself no dating until the scale reads 190 but this new me is feeling sexually driven like I have never been before. Well, she's right I wasn't really planning on calling her so she called me. So I told her my age (41) and was shocked to hear that she generally goes for men older than 35. We must've talked on the phone close to 3 hours. You're going to think I am lying when I tell you she's a 3rd year med student and is interested in training to be a bariatric surgeon. The stars might've just aligned but I want to go slow and told her that I had weight loss surgery. She's totally my type - the professional, highly educated, and ambitious woman. That's what frightens me, because in the past, this has lead to unhealthy relationships. Well, I've got a date lined up for Saturday and I just want to have some fun. I needed money in order to make this happen so I sold a bunch of old computer equipment and managed to raise some capital for this adventure. I know I won't be drinking alcohol but that's okay.

        This is an awesome story Matty! I'm so happy for you. I hope you have a blast :)

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        I'm delighted for you! Have fun!

      3. Mattymatt

        Thank you! It's all a little too surreal because all of my relationships have been people I've met online.

      It's more successfully minded to ask questions like.... When can I begin working out.... Or when can I return to work as opposed to when can I eat that or this again.....

      Down another three pounds and had my one-month post-surgery follow-up (although its actually be 7 weeks tomorrow, their scheduling sucks). The nurse practitioner was pleased with my weight loss (36 pounds in 7 weeks) and told me I was cleared to go back to water aerobics and whatever else I would like to pursue exercise wise. Now to find a new pair of tennis shoes
