This thread had me laughing so hard, I was crying! Thing is, my car is being serviced & Iโ€™m in the waiting area. Iโ€™m getting lots of strange looks, what with all the chuckling, snorting, and tear wiping going on!

My surgery was pretty drama-free but I did pass out from low blood sugar once at about four months out. I thought that Tramadol had given me a seizure or that I had had a panic attack, so I was kind of relieved when I figured out why I had fainted.

Yessss! I just spent the last half hour going through this thread and I couldn't stop laughing :D

Im a pretty chill person in general... Ive been told Im too relaxed, even in intense situations. I wonder if this surgery will spark a dramatic moment for me. I just hope its not poop. I've been on the other side of it, having to help friends who accidentally had an accident... pretty crazy lol

Wow this thread is a real gem!
Iโ€™ve laughed for the last 10 minutes. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

I really donโ€™t have much drama, unless you want to call throwing all of your loving family members out of the hospital room about 5 minutes after I got there post-op drama.

You see, the surgery schedule got delayed 4 hours due to computer issues and an emergency surgery and then the bariatric floor was full and I didnโ€™t get to my room til 6pm (my surgery had been originally scheduled for 10am that day).

I was so freaking pissed when I discovered that they had held all 3 of us in the recovery room, keeping us drugged up for several extra hours and still expected us to have our 64 ounces Water drank by morning rounds at 7am.

When I realized what the time on the clock in my room said, I kicked EVERYONE out and was so angry I actually got dressed by myself and started walking and drinking Water ASAP

Lol, I vaguely remember telling hubs and mom that โ€œthey would only be a distractionโ€ and that because of the hospital disorganization I was behind schedule and needed to catch up!

I set the timer on my phone to go off every 45 minutes and I would drink,pee, walk, walk, walk some more,drink, and lie back down. Didnโ€™t sleep a wink the entire night and at one time one of the nurses aides had to follow me around (not difficult as I was moving slow.... but moving) to get me in one place so they could check my blood sugar.

Every time my nurse came in to measure my intake and output, I would ask if I was ahead of or behind the other 2 surgery people from that day and would crack him up when I fist-pumped upon learning I was progressing the fastest. Oh and because Iโ€™m a pharmacist I had down pat the timing of all nausea meds. I was making the poor man rotate through meds every 2 hours so I could walk walk walk and drink drink drink.



I managed to get released by 11am, and yes....... I was first out !

I'm certain that I will have many many many more dramatic moments to come now that my impending RNY conversion surgery is just a few days away but here's the latest:

+Buying personalized engraved name bracelets/necklaces for each of my children (with the correct spelling of their names on them) before surgery not so they can be stylish Kings & Queens of 1995 ๐Ÿ˜‚ but just in case someone thought they were gonna try to abduct my youths, I (or anyone) would know at least one thing they are always wearing... #thankslifetime

+Actively going to the bank just to create a Totten trust to leave my shekels to my children ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜’

I really need to stop Adulting for this week

I didnโ€™t realise that you were having a revision. Good luck, hope it all goes well and that it solves the reflux issue

      Ok...so keeping my dailyย weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3ย lbs fluctuations. ย Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)
