I remember back,thinking those months would never end, was I ready? was there anything I could have done better? Can I really do this thing?
But stay faithful,do your testing, watch,your diet, follow every rule,your doctor hsd, he or she has been doing this business longer than you.
And then the day will finally come. , you will be less 3 days to go. And that old bugaboo, Father Time,that,you felt wasn't cooperating,all the sudden you are riding that runaway freight train to surgery, did you pack everything you wanted to take? What are you going wear there? And have you got food stuffs ready for when you get home or are you making an emergency run to Target or another store? Do you have your laundry caught up? Nothing worse,than coming home to 3 baskets and you can't lift 10 pounds. Are the animals taken. care of, how about your spouse and kids? one thing, that I still gotta do, change out the,litter in the cat box, won't be wanting to bend over there soon
Do you have a living will,or power of attorney paperwork. Did you remember to have your insurance cards and med list? Do,you,have a charger for you cell phone. All the sudden these small,stuff worries pop up, and you kill them all. And you put a smile on your face, a song on your lips,hope in your heart, and you go check in. You're ready. you go peacefully to sleep,knowing your are safe with,the best team possible,,while you are asleep, magic will be performed , and when you wake your new life begins, and it will be,good, a little more good healing and you can utilize the changes for good.

Must be so exciting that the day will be here shortly. Can't wait to hear about your journey after surgery

I just got scheduled for November 21, the day before Thanksgiving! I'm bummed that I have to wait that much longer, but I'm actually sort of relieved that I won't have to face the rest of the family in a house full of food while on a liquid diet. My mother in law still would've expected me to bring a side dish even though I couldn't eat it! She is trying to be supportive but she really doesn't get it yet.

I'm set for Nov. 15th for surgery- I've started panicking a bit thinking about the liquid diet, etc. I've been reading as much information as I can trying to prepare!!

      Going through a lot of personal issues...came to visit my mom to try and figure out what I need to do. I'm really experiencing that head hunger I keep hearing about. In my lowest moments I feel most hungry. My stomach hurts like I'm starving. Trying to get in and see a therapist ASAP. Just really struggling to keep it all together. It's really weird to feel like this and not have food...I feel lost. SOunds so ridiculous. Sorry to be a downer, just been a hell of a day. 😕

      Today I decided  along with grilled salmon I would eat yogurt. Not mixed together but bite for bite. Things are getting weird at Chateau GreenTealael

      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)

      Scheduled 11/05/2018 for the second time to get a gastric sleeve. woke up from surgery with the nurses telling me. They were unable to do surgery .unable to introduce Laparoscopy when it needed to be. had to abort it. Too dangerous for me. I was so Very Depressed. I'm doing better with the depression. I must believe My Doctor Aborted surgery to Protect me .But I wanted this surgery so bad. Well I'm suppose to see him on 11/16/18 to discuss alternative methods. Hopefully I can Reschedule it for the third time

      5 days Post op Update:
      Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!
