Had Emergency Surgery Just Now



Recommended Posts

Update today: 7.16.19

I weighed in at 135.8lbs. Morning of surgery I was 133lbs and went up to my highest weight after surgery (from D5LR IV) was 141lbs.

Obscenely relieved to see the scale going in the right direction!!!

Obsessed much?

It's all good. Just a small hiccup, that I probably went Drama Llama on. :) Ha! It happens!

Oh, and back to 133.4lbs this morning. What a difference a week makes, right? Am I right? And I "ralked" (ran-walked at 3mph) this morning for 30 minutes.

I'm sorry this has happened to you, but glad your surgeon fixed it quickly.

It may have happened to you whether you'd had a VSG or not. Imagine how much more difficult your recovery would be if you were still obese!

Sending you positive healing vibes through the ether. 😉🙂

Well, I'm back to my low weight! Am 133.4lbs this morning. :D But my azz may always be big (relatively) and my tum is still puffy and swollen, so I'm thinking I may have 3-4lbs of extra weight on me right now. :D Waiting breathlessly and impatiently for this to happen. :) (Even so, I kinda feel like I cheated on the final leg of the weight loss.) Cuz hells, a blind squirrel can find a nut now and then and that's kinda how I think of this surgery. I found a blind nut. Coulda been bad, but turned into a boon to keep my yap shut and not eating!

((Note to @Sosewsue61 *snort* I read this as "Glad you are almost back to you SMALL azz self." and all I can add is that reading comprehension is a highly underrated skill. ;) The struggle is real. LOLOLOLOL!)

How I’m doing is great and maybe not so much lol. I’ll start with the great part? I’m down to a new low of 131.6 this morning.

Notsogreat is that it almost certainly won’t stick the landing cuz l got here by “foul” means lol. Apparently SOMEONES prayers to the Poo Fairy in this ESTABLISHMENT were too fervent and it’s backfired cuz I can’t turn the spigot off and nothin is stayin put. So it’s dehydration weight loss. 😏😲🥴

Did some tests yesterday and have “homework” to turn in Monday and we’ll know if it’s serious or not next week.

Meanwhile I’m back here hangin with potassium pills and Kaopectate. 🍾🎉🥳 hoping I’m not in a beginning stage of a little infection . My temp is starting to come up a little.

Yes! It’s really nbd!! Lol but you should see the shopping list: rice, Idaho potato, bananas , apples, sourdough bread, lololol! That’s why I don’t see the 131 “sticking” hahaha!! (But I was extremely grateful to the Poo Fairy for sparing me from the whole RB post surgery experience! 😘

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, 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".
