Wow, CajunSam, it's done! You did it! We're all so happy and proud for you... you watched and were so kind to all of us as our dates came and went... and now you've had yours at last! Great report by the way. I had six incisions for some reason! And coming out of anesthesia was the most painful part of it. I'm amazed you were able to walk so easily so soon... I'm only catching up walking NOW, lol!

PS what little hunger you're feeling is going to get lots, lots less ;)

Thank you so so much! The anesthesia was hard for me to come out of initially, as well. I woke up too early and my breathing tube was still in. Very scary! I am trying to keep moving around today and drinking lots of Water. As of now I don't feel any type of hunger. I did make myself eat some sugar free Jello earlier and around 1 ish Ill heat up some broth. This no hunger thing is so weird and so new to me! When I had my sleeve surgery I was full fledged hungry just days after surgery. I am hoping it stays this way, LOL!

Thank you for the kind words!

I brought a small sling bag of items, but the only things I used were chapstick, phone, and phone charger. I would have done some reading, but my brother was there to keep me company...or I was sleeping. Lol. The nurse seemed impressed with my light packing.

Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using BariatricPal mobile app

I second this, LOL. The only other thing I used was my tablet but I could have done all that on my phone. Bring chapstick! I didnt and my lips stayed so dry!

That’s no fun. This should help with some issues until they can find out what is going on for you.

I know this may sound cliche, but did you try running Water? I couldn't pee after surgery, though the urgency was present. My sister-in-law came to check on me and I told her what was wrong. She turned on the water, stated it helped my brother after gastric bypass, and ta-da, I immediately peed.

Sorry to read about the cath.

They put a nausea patch behind my ear. They told me they’d remove it if I had trouble urinating. Supposedly it can cause Water retention. If you have that you might want to remove it. Hope you’re feeling better! I’m still trying to get my water in for the day. Never realized how big the bottle was, lol.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.
