T-5 days. Yikes!



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I haven't posted since I first started the approval process but, at long last, my surgery is just about here! So many emotions. I would love to hear first-hand accounts of what to expect the day of surgery or the days immediately after, it would be much appreciated. Looking frayed to being part of the losing club!

The day of surgery you will go into the Pre Op area and get checked and ready to go to the OR. You will meet your doc and the sleep doc and go over some things. A nurse will clean your stomach and you will be in a Rolling bed - Tell the sleep Doc you are nervous and he will give you a med to help you relax, Then into the OR you get rolled and that was the last thing i recall one wiff of the happy gas and its lights out.

For me i woke up in the recovery area with this nurse yelling at me to breath breath breath - This is my whole life of women yelling at me first thing when i wake up.

Then its off to the room and Rest.

As soon as you can and trust me on this Walk and move - The faster you get out of bed and move move move the better you will be, You need to get the air and gas moving out, So walk the halls as much as you can.

I stayed on the morphine cuz i love drugs, but the pain was not bad at all and i was out in of there in less then 28 hours and home,

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!
      I even created a new blog post today! https://sabrinagoddess.com/create-a-life-that-you-love
