Dec 20 Banding!



Recommended Posts

I heard back from the doctor today and I get banded on December 20! Anybody else too?

I am excited and nervous- I start my pre-op diet tomorrow. I'm going out with my boyfriend for dinner tonight :(

... never mind. :rolleyes:

My date got canceled last minute. They called me at 10:30 last night to tell me not to come in at 6:00 am like they had planned

I feel like crap. It's because my father had a bad reaction to anesthetic and nearly died. Now I might have to wait up to a month more for my banding. :(

What a horrible let down! I think I would have been too upset to even get out of bed today! We're here for you if you need to talk/vent/scream. Let us know about a rescheduled time.

Oh- I haven't.

The doctor said he would call at 8:00 am this morning to discuss planning another, but no call yet ...:faint:

:clap2:had surgery thursday.. Got to see the band this morning as they did contrast x-rays before they would let me drink anything...It was very different to see that wrapped around my stomach.

I am uncomfortable and getting up and down isn't much fun but other than that I am doing oK. But then again I am sure the morphine they were pumping into me helped out quite a bit.

I have gas-x and peppermint tea to help out with the pressure..

My shoulder hurts but from reading on here- it is just gas.

WIsh me luck ladies and I will catch up later this week when I am little better.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
