Pre-surgery Nightmares



Recommended Posts

I just had my first, and hopefully last, pre-surgery nightmare. In it, I had my surgery, but it didn't work. I was eating everything in sight, but was starving. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what was behind it, but it really rattled me. It reminded of all of those bad dreams I would have when I was dieting. Breaking my diet and eating non-stop. Has anyone else had bad dreams prior to surgery?

Yeah most of them dealt with my sense of unworthiness. I would dream I woke up and for various reasons I had not had a successful one.
internal malformation
liver too big
My stomach was funny-looking
I had 3 kidneys, well I really do, but that is no bar to surgery
My intestines were too small? hnnh?
My intestine lay funny
But my all-time crazy weird pre-surg nightmare?
My intestine ran the wrong direction and Dr Needleman refused,to stand on his head. That one even woke me up, I'm laying in bed saying What did I JUST dream?
No big problems encountered, had my RNY bypass September 5 2018, and Dr Needleman had no complaints, normal amount of time, and he must have appreciated the downsizing of my liver, the 4+ weeks of liver-shrinking worked, as well as paring of 15 pounds from my too too flabby flesh! And I have achieved my 1st mini-goal, I am now UNDER 300 pounds, 298,6 yesterday! Now to feel better and look less bashed up, but maybe I just want it all!🐵🙈🙉🙊

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
