Yes... Too small 😒

i almost would have agreed with you on Saturday. I had the most amazing Italian Meatball dish and it nearly brought me to tears when i could only eat one. It tasted so dam amazing. It is days like that when i am most grateful for the restriction and oddly most disappointed. I really like to play the mind games on myself obviously.

I just got back from my follow up and my Dr. said they used a 34 but they don't staple extremely close to the bougie.

Mine used a 36. I asked him if he would use a 34 and he said no. Said he thought 36 was the safest size and had the most success without complications. For him, not all doctors. I’ve had no complications and still have pretty good restriction.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
