I had my surgery on July 3, and it went perfectly. I was textbook case. No more morphine within 8 hours after surgery, I walked the halls every two hours after surgery, I only took four doses of the Tylenol/Vicodin liquid. I had almost no pain, I had no difficulty getting my fluids in. Absolutely no problems moving through the pureed, soft food and regular food stages. .
I started back to the gym two weeks after surgery, with the doctor’s permission. No problem with my exercise goals. I am losing weight- just not as fast as I would like and not as fast as some people, which is soooooo depressing.
But I haven’t been writing, the one thing I swore to keep up with. I’m stealing a few moments now on my daughter’s computer as I babysit three kids. I have no access to any of my photos while here, so I have nothing to show you. I just wanted to let you all know I’m alive, I’m doing okay. I did have the surgery and I’ve lost 28 pounds in the 58 days since. I’ve lost a lot of inches and have gone down a few sizes. Overall a success.
I’m mobile, no wheelchair, no handicap cart- I’m functioning on my own.
I will post more and I will add pics.
I am so sorry for dropping the ball on this one.
