Hi everyone, I'm new here and would like to introduce myself. I'm a 47yr old wife and a mom of 3 (27yrs, 10yrs & 9yrs) I'm addicted to food and an over eater. Nothing dark or sinister in my childhood to make me like this, just...I LOVE FOOD lol. So, I'm lurking around.

Well @skm1971 it's a fantabulous Friday I sure hope it is good for you. I have a presurgical meeting with an amrsthesia person, a Dr Patel. Did you,know,Patel is as common as Smith or Jones,is here. Most common one in India.
My hospital, Ohio State University has a weird sequence of doing things . Apparently you meet with someone from Anesthesia to go over a final checklist 11 days before surgery. So I have an appointment at 11:45 to do that. I'll do it , I'll do it if. if it's part of the final countdown. September 5th , here I come!
So,how did,your own surgery go? A lot of people say the third day post- surgery can be rough. I sure hope yours goes smooth instead. I wish everybody could have uneventful ones, but this is the real world and things don't always work out that way. But I try to stay upbeat through it all.🍀🍀😛

Hi all...had surgery tuesday and got home thursday evening. Everything went well and the doctor even fixed a hiatal hernia that I didn't know I had. Surgery was about 2hrs long. I have 5 incisions and 1 is really sore because they worked it a lot. It feels like alcohol being poured on an open wound so, I'm taking my Percocet routinely. I had 1/4 cup pudding and 1/4 cup cream of wheats today and it's hard getting my Water in. It's after 8pm and I still need another 20 ounces to drink. I'm thinking I'll go with Protein Shakes tomorrow so I can get some nutrition with my liquids.
