Hi Everyone.... sorry for the delay in my post, but I have been sleeping/healing most of the time.

My day started at 3am to drink the presurgery ClearFast... then off to the hospital for arrival by 6am. Surgery time at 7:30. Every thing ran very smoothly. They gave me another recap of what the surgery would entail. I arrived in the OR at 7:38 and that is the last thing I remember before waking up in the recovery room. My surgeon said that it only took him 45 minutes to do his job... then off to tell my husband how it went. I was in my room at about 10am and feeling pretty well. I was up and walking about an hour after that.

My pain never went above 4... but that could be because of the anesthesia still in my system. For me, the worst part at this stage was the heartburn. My belly was very tender, but nothing that a few ice packs couldn't help. I actually stole the reusable ice pack and am still icing. Hoping to get the swelling down.

I had 5 incisions... the largest one was where they removed my stomach through. According to my surgeon, I had a very large stomach. Normal is 7 inches.... mine was 12. So, needless to say, the largest incision is showing more bruising than the other 4.

I am very happy that it is over... Now onto recovery. It is a little weird being excited that I can finish a Protein Shake (even tho it took 3 hours to finish!!)

No the protocol here is to stay two nights as standard. Which suits me as I was in no shape to go anywhere this morning.

Still cant believe how much better I am today. Gas pain is no joke. Also had a litte gas out the back end which is also kind of a victory.. tmi I know but there yah go. :)

One step at a time... literally. Keep walking and use ice packs to help with the swelling. Congrats to you!! I already feel that everything I had to do to get here was worth it. I am 4 days post op and feeling better each day.

Keep on top of the liquids! I’m 5 days liquid still have 10 to go. Day 3 I got fuzzy and confused called the doctor I was behind on the shakes and Water they said it was dehydration. Got busy at work and didn’t think about it. Good luck!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
