I’ve read so many posts recently asking if particular experience, symptoms, feelings were normal. I thought we could have an area where you can know you are not alone! I know there’s a lot of lurkers that may have questions also but don’t ask
I’ll start:
1) Yes! It is totally normal to have second thoughts and feelings of anxiousness prior to surgery. It is major surgery that is going to affect the way you live for the rest of your life. I would question it if you DIDN’T experience a little of both
2) I also think it’s normal to have the feeling afterwards of “what have I done to myself ?” You are not only a hormonal mess afterwards but you’ve mostly likely just lost your source of comfort. It make takes weeks or months to come to grips with it. Or you may experience the complete opposite and have total elation!! That’s ok too !

It does get better 👍🏻 Hang in there 😎

Its normal to have erratic bathroom habits after surgery, but it doesn't have to stay that way forever.

Find what works to help:

More/less Fiber, varying types of fiber, laxatives (as directed by your Team), avoid/embrace certain foods, Probiotics, more fluids, different Protein sources, etc.

Don't stay impacted/loose if you dont have to!

Interesting, mine stopped after a couple of months. Of course, everything I ate was a slider. Maybe that's why. Actually, I still eat mostly sliders 😳

It's normal to feel c-c-c-c-old after surgery and have the need to wear sweaters/socks/blankets All. The. Time.

Side note: I am the only one in my hot yoga class who wears socks and long sleeves to class. Sometimes I even keep my yoga jacket on for the first half of it.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂

        Your progress with weight loss is awesome and so is your garden! I think you should've became a horticulturist. We've really gotten into gardening this year and it's darn good exercise. Keep up the good work and I'll keep watching. :D

      this one is a bit of a slog to get thru but it is important to see the differences they are trying to define.
