I'm June 26th. Started my pre-op diet today. While I'm sure there will be many times I'll be happy I can have some foods... fruits, veggies, lean meat, 1/2 potato, yogurt... prepping is a pain in the butt. There might be something to be said for the convenience of just grabbing a shake and going.

Got home yesterday afternoon. Sent me home with a drain. Anybody heard of that? It's kind of awkward and starting to bother. Otherwise just trying to walk and drink my Protein.

Yay! Nice to hear you're in the comfort of your home! I'm not sure about the drain but I've had 2 drains for another surgery before. They are a little annoying but they come out easy and help collect Fluid. I'm sure you'll only have until your first follow up or so.

I have my pre-op appointment tomorrow and am not quite certain what all to ask.

I stopped at the grocery store and purchased some goodies today on my way home for my pre-op diet. I start 10 days before surgery but am thinking about making it an even 2 weeks just to get in the groove.

This is all going so fast. I had my first appointment with my surgeon on May 22nd and am scheduled for surgery on June 25th. Fast track for self-pay I guess. Yikes. Excited!

Good luck on your diet I’m glad you get some food it’s easier that away

I am scheduled for my RNY on June 13th. Scripps Memorial Hospital in San Diego. Today is my last day of work at my job in Illinois before I take short term disability and I fly out on Monday. I am looking forward to the surgery and look forward to the positive impact this tool should afford me.

        That really is a compliment! You must be glowing with health!

      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.

        That's pretty damn epic man... Congrats! It's crazy with some liberally applied confidence can do!

      2. MN_Meg770

        Wow! Way to go Matt! You sound out of my league ;)

      3. okayestmom

        It sounds like you are already have fun even before the date. Relax and enjoy.

        This post was just what I needed, I am tired of medical stuff today.

      4. Mattymatt

        No @MN_Meg770, you're not out of my league. You're just too far away :-( I like you very much and if you lived in my area, you'd be totally dateable. As I wrote before, having a type is not really healthy a thing and I am hesitant to get into a relationship with someone whom might not be very understanding of a disability.

      5. MN_Meg770

        I was just teasing you silly :) It is all good.

      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
