My journey: The Pain of Starting Over

You are two days ahead of me (lap band to RNY) and you are right--it's worse than you expect but I now feel I have turned the corner and just might live...😁

But dang, your surgeon is really aggressive on your post op diet. I'm one week out and overjoyed that I get to eat cottage cheese and watered down mashed taters. I can add meat at week three, but since I'm a vegetarian that's no help. I can eat 1/2 an egg at three weeks, though...and I'm so happy I'm cackling!

Lol, I'm living too. Each day is getting better and better. I have noticed that the more I walk, the better I feel.

I know that's right. I was prepared to do the same as far as eating cottage cheese and other simple foods in that category. I was shocked when he told me all that. I was so happy because I really wanted to try a taste of Thanksgiving dinner. Now, I can. Happy Thanksgiving to you. :)

Having my Band to Sleeve on 12/2. Had my band since 2012. Ready to be done with things getting stuck and constantly wondering if it’s still ok in there or slipped or eroding. Have always struggled with the fact of knowing that there’s something in there that shouldn’t be in there and what could go wrong. I’ve lost 40 pounds in eight years that I have kept off just ready to move onto the next step and get the rest off.

So I'm two weeks postop and I'm still experiencing some pain where my sleeve is. It's not bad, but it's still sore nonetheless. It truly amazes and mind boggles me that some individuals have posted saying they are having minimal pain. I know all our bodies are different, but we all just had MAJOR SURGERY; therefore, I know some of you have to be experiencing some type of pain unless you're just not completely human. smh lol

Today I'm three weeks postop and I'm still having pain and discomfort where the sleeve was done. I am barely eating and my weight is still the same. Last week I started drinking Karma Water so that I could have some extra Vitamins and minerals in my system. I actually drank a couple of Vitamin waters last Sunday and Monday which really gave me some extra energy, but I stopped drinking them because it's too much sugar and too sweet for my taste. I love drinking water not sugar. Yesterday I had a headache all day for some reason and this morning it's hurting again. Not as bad as yesterday, but it's a slight pain nonetheless. I have also noticed that even though I'm drinking water it's not enough because my lips are very dry. Today I will try to get more water in.

I started weight watchers and a membership with 24 hour fitness for the new year. It has taken a week but I am finally seeing results. I am so happy the scale is finally moving because I am not eating a lot at all and since my surgery, my tastes for certain foods have changed. My first goal weight is 190 and I can't believe I'm almost there. I just wish this arthritis wasn't so bad because I would love to do more. For now I ride a bicycle, and then I sit in the steam room. Then I finish by relaxing in the whirl pool. So far so good.😀

I can totally tell. Look at your chin and how much larger your eyes look! Your face shaped has definitely changed.

You look great! Congratulations

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
