As of Wednesday I was all clear. However, the pulmonologist read my sleep study which shows I have severe sleep apnea. He is going to try and get connected w my own machine before my surgery on the 11th- I told him that I don't want to delay my surgery. Its been scheduled for 6 mos. Anyone hear about this being an issue? Cant they just have a cpap and adjust at the time of the surgery? The dr’s office had my report.

Has anyone in early January had a pre op appointment yet, where they tell you what your pre op diet will be ? I havent had it yet and I am 1/11. I read the guidelines and its not totally liquids. That surprised me.


I've had mine however my Dr told me I only needed 1 day liquid anything else was my choice. Shocking based on everyone's story but I belive it depends on your body type and lab work. I still started liquid 12/26 to prepare myself mentally for what's to come I follow step 2 for pre op

My program requires it of everyone across the board, 2 weeks Clear Liquids, with 4-5 Protein Shakes a day. It's just their protocol. I dislike it but I learned a new thing, I can do liquids for 2 weeks. I've been very rigid about it and these past few days it's been harder cravings wise, but the days are going by.

      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.
