My new birthday. Nov. 30, 2010
As you can see by the name of my blog, I just had my weight loss surgery. This has been a year in coming. Excited, scared, to say the least. But very determined to be successful. To that end I am sure I will need all the help and support I can get. I know this is not entirely a journey of one.
I guess right now my hardest hurdle has been the meal replacement shakes I am eating. The product my surgeon has me on is so sickening sweet it makes me sick to my stomach. I am having a very hard time getting it all down, so I am having trouble getting all my protein.
I guess I should tell you I live in Missouri, but had my surgery in Oklahoma. I have a very good doctor. I was very surprised that just a few hours after my surgery I was eating, of course just 30cc every 30 min. I did very good the first day. The second day was pretty good, and I was pleased that I had hardly any pain at all. I also got to get out of the hospital that afternoon.
Since I live 4 hours from the hospital, I went to a motel for the night. The next day was travel day. I was very tired, and not feeling real good, but made it home. Yeah!! Since being home every day I feel better and better, but just dread my shakes!
I look forward to hopefully having communication with many other lap-band patients. I know I can learn a lot from those of you who have been at this for awhile.
Till next time.
