Time for an update.

As I mentioned prior, my pre-op is scheduled for 27 Dec and surgery for 20 Jan. I've been working on my prerequisites and knocked out a biggie this morning. I've done the psych eval, the supervised weight loss program, and insurance is in place. Had a bit of trouble with the stress test (I do not do treadmills well.) so had to do a cardiac catherization. Did that last week and no blockage so the cardiac physician is thumbs up for surgery. Also had to do a EGD which I did this AM. The EGD showed a hiatal hernia and some Barrets. I knew about those so that was no surprise. My surgeon performed the EGD and said he wanted to be sure I understood the risks of a sleeve v. bypass wrt GERD but that he saw nothing that would prevent doing either.

Yes, I realize the bypass is superior to the sleeve for GERD but I much prefer the sleeve. The GERD has been well controlled for the past three years.

I have three things left.

I have to do a chest x-ray. (I've already told the physician that it will show a spot. That spot has been there for years so that shouldn't be a concern.)

I've got to do the pre-op.

The surgeon told me I need to lose 25 pounds at our initial consult. I've lost 15 and it's still over a month till surgery.

Had the sleeve done on Monday. Also corrected a hiatal hernia. Things went well. Only paid is when I set up or roll over. Well controlled with tylenol. Tuesday weight was up about nine pounds. Lost all that today. Must have been IV fluids.

Day 3 of my pre-surgery liquid diet. I probably shouldn’t have weighed myself but this chunky gal is down 5 pounds already doing just this. That means the sleeve is gonna be awesome!! 1/28 is surgery day and I’m so excited I can’t sleep.

I am post-OP day 6 with very little pain and I am feeling great. I haven't had many low energy moments even though I am only getting about 500 calories per day. The most amazing thing to me is I have zero hunger! I am only drinking Protein Shakes because I know I have to get my Protein in. This is the first time in my life I can say that I am eating to live rather than living to eat.

Second day in ICU. They had complications and had to cut off the top half of my larger stomach and I had a leak. I'm not having nausea or vomiting and the invitation sites are door but not unbearable. What's killing me is the drain and my shoulder. I hear shoulder pain and issues before surgery and being in the Jesus pose on the hard table for five hours just killed it. Having to stay at least one more night and keep the drain in for a week ugh.

Zero hunger sounds wonderful! Thanks for sharing. Glad to hear you are doing so well.
