I actually prefer not to die



Recommended Posts

Since you are getting closer to your surgery date, I thought it might be fitting to pass on a little advice.

After surgery remember to WALK, WALK, WALK. Around the clock every 2 hours. Most of the pain from surgery is really gas pain and walking relieves that. After surgery I felt so little pain that I refused all pain medicine. It was because I WALKED, WALKED, WALKED.

I had surgery in 2013 and this article summarizes my perception.

I am 71 years old now and still kicking. Having the surgery was a major part of my continued living. Well off to the YMCA to swim a mile.

Great advice. This should also help with my diabetes related leg pain. Walking, and maybe some time on my stationary bike.

Walking is great advice. My neighbor who had RNY surgery said walk 1000 steps every 2 hours. For the same reason, to greatly reduce gas pain. He also suggested bringing anti-gas pills with you to the hospital.

I didn't add the ** in my reply. It must have been automatic. I assume the audience here is composed mostly of tender snowflakes, and the last thing I want to do is intrude on someone's safe space. Oh, Motherfacker!

I think the forum computer does that. I typed s--h--i--t once, and it added the same asterisk. I guess our virginal eyes will explode if we read cuss words.👰

Brian,

Your post caught my attention. I can relate - 46 yo female and I finally decided I wanted to live long enough to see grandchildren, great-grandchildren, etc.

Well I'm 59, never married, and have an abnormally high sex drive. I'm going to lose 100 lbs and get my old job back in the adult film industry.

Don't judge me. I bring happiness to many.

This is probably my last post. The moderator put me on double-secret internet probation. I just got back, and I fear my salty language is going to get me a permanent kick in the taint. I just gotta be me, but I tend to melt a lot of snowflakes. Surgery postponed until this Wednesday because blood sugar too high. I'd ask for advice, but I'm about to get banned for life.

Well if you do go, I will miss you. You have made me laugh out loud many times. I don’t have any advice for the blood sugar issue though. I hope it all goes well.

Oh no, don't go.... please change your entire personality to please a bunch of cyber strangers!! Seriously, I wish you could stay for the journey, and for the laughs. Re blood sugar, I have a friend who swears by 10 minutes brisk walk after she eats anything. Best of luck!

Also, trying to get my doctor to increase my medication before surgery Wednesday. a*****e only works until noon, then he apparently drops acid and enjoys a round or two of ass sex and can't be reached. Until I'm almost f**king dead, that is.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this post...so I'll do both. Seriously, good luck. I don't know why they won't go ahead and do your surgery...it'll fix your sugar problem quickly.
