Hi all here’s an update and follow on post from after my walk.

SW 310.2
WS 293.3
CW 279.8

GW 167.2

So the few days before my walk I started to get some heartburn with every sip I was taking and it was really painful. And feeling dizzy. That upset me greatly as I knew then I wasn’t drinking as much as I need to and just downright annoying. Each time I’d need to lay down.

I have my first post op appointment with the dr and dietician tomorrow so I’m going to discuss that with them.

Yay, I went for a walk for 25mins. (My knees are feeling it today, however it is more muscles that are tight making my knees hurt so I had already booked a physio appt before surgery, it is in a couple of days) And I need to do some fascia stretching - it’s painful but worth it.

My surgery wounds are healing well. 3 out of five have sealed right up. So I started to put a silicone scar gel on them all, it is also bacteria inhibiting.

I feel really great with the amount of weight that has gone, here’s some positive reasons so far...

Feel like I can actually go for a walk now.
Clothes are loose.
I feel just a little more agile than I was before.
I have the desire to want to do more now - a bit more positive.
Standing up from seated somewhere isn’t as hard.


I felt a bit nervous before my walk as I’d also been feeling dizzy the days before. Anyway, I blitzed it and it felt amazing to move and be outside. I’m hoping to keep a walk up each day, I’ll just do the same walk until I get fitter. So pats on the back to me! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

And I started to get a sore throat yesterday again, felt the same as the one I had before surgery 🙄 so I didn’t sleep well last night, only 3hours sleep. My ears are blocked so it’s all sinus swelling in my head - painful.

I realise this post is possibly long and boring. But an account of how it’s been for me.

I’m really looking forward to recovering more ie wounds healing internally and externally and being able to move more and not have so much heartburn, I want to see more dropping down on the scales.

I guess when I’ve had to lay down from the heart burn it was making me feel very lazy, like old habits of not moving from the couch.

Good luck to everyone having surgery that is still to come. You’ll be fine.

Also on the off chance anyone gets a rash from the surgical tape/bandaid things. Sudocream works wonders. High in zinc. And yes it’s also a nappy rash cream.

Big hugs all round to everyone, what we are doing is not easy but it’s the best thing long term. I’m excited about the future - that’s hard for me to say.

Have a wonderful day all. Be kind to yourself and others.

So last night my kids were eating ham and I thought I smelt really good. So I decided that a hotdog was soft food and I would try that. Well apparently my body disagreed and I had horrible stomach cramping and massive diarrhea. So I will be avoiding hotdogs for the foreseeable future. But on the plus side I dropped a pound and a half and I’m down to 216.4.

Hey everyone, thought I would check in. Had my RNY at Toronto Western hospital on April 8th, was released the next day. I seem to be doing pretty well. I'm tolerating most liquids. I've been pretty much sticking to Protein smoothies, smooth cream Soups, Premier Protein, V8, no sugar added pudding/jello/icecream. I sometimes change up the fruit or the Soup but at this point I just want to get past the liquids and start to incorporate more variety so I am keeping it simple until then. On Thursday I should be able to start pureed stage for two weeks then soft foods. I don't have any pain from my surgery. I get some discomfort if I am overdoing it a little and have to go rest. It takes me all day but I end up getting about 4 cups of liquids and 80-85g protein at this point. I've been taking an electrolyte supplement as my urine is still a bit dark and I think that helps. My steri strips haven't fallen off yet. I'm getting all my Vitamins in as well and doing some light walking everyday. My weight stalled a week after surgery but it seems to be moving again now. From my pre-op diet until now I've lost 25lbs in about 3-4 weeks.

Naiad Shoot at the hospital the day of my surgery I so tired that I told them to quickly knock me out with the anesthesia because I’m about to knock out because I’m so sleepy. Actually I’m pretty sure I was falling asleep as they started putting the anesthesia 😂. I didn’t fully wake up until about 12am. I was so tired that I was conscious when they moved me out of surgery bed. Well at least I think, all I remember is hearing okay we are done. . . Then I felt them lift my body and move it to another bed. Then I felt movement and again movement to another bed. I herd people around me, and I would slightly but just barely open my eyes. Because I didn’t want to wake up from the lights. And I remember in recovery room I was moving my legs and arms a lot 😂. My mother came to visit and she said I was I feeling I told her fine. . . But I’m really really still sleepy, so I knocked out. Woke up a few times when they took me to my room, just to make sure they gave me my glasses back. Then I knocked out again. I was so tired because I went to sleep at 12 something am, due to excitement for the surgery. I woke up at 5:30am for my surgery appointment that was at 11:30am but didn’t get into surgery until 5:30pm so I was getting really tired from being in that chair waiting for them to call me. You can say I did wake up a few time but the tiredness and sleepiness hit me hard. . . But not as hard as them gas pains from the surgery 😂 😬😅

You had so much time to wait! I would have gone insane! Just hurry up and wait! Thankfully my surgery and waiting before hand was quick but afterwards just interruption after interruption! I’m finally being told okay go to bed we will let you sleep until 6-7 when vitals are taken again! Uhhhh it is 1 am! 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".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
