Thanks! If I live, I've got important goals that need to be addressed!

You are too funny, you sound like my husband. I don't want the state to get custody of my dogs either. My husband thinks I am nuts that I am not worried about the procedure, I am worried about leaving my dogs. I have to travel 5 hours so my husband will not be home at night.

BTW the important question to ask the surgeon is if they will perform the operation in its entirety. I was not open to being a teaching case with this, though I did let students check out the results during rounds.

Good point. I always tell the surgeons when I have surgery that residents may watch but no touch. My doc will be doing the surgery herself since I have severe gastroparesis and I have a gastric stimulator. I also have a lot of adhesions due to open abdominal surgeries. Hopefully this surgery will take care of the gastroparesis for good.

      My life is 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.
      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

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
