Anticipation...

Sunday, March 01, 2009

Did *almost* a grand today...am trying to ramp up my workouts in anticipation of my surgery.

*Soon* I am hoping to really ramp DOWN my food...but have to admit to enjoying some of the higher fat foods a bit more than I should right now...you know, cheese, peanut butter, etc...as I'm guessing without my gall bladder I won't be able to tolerate those much afterwards.

Don't know if I have it in me, but would truly like to attempt vegetarian foods at least while I'm recuperating not only as a means of limiting my calories, but for other reasons which have been philosophically nagging at me for a while also...re: better for the ecology, global warming, etc. And hey! One can grow dinner in the back yard! How local (and COOL) is THAT?!? :-)

Off to see the doc tomorrow...stay tuned...

    After your GB is removed, you will have to stay away from fatty foods for a short period of time but it is not a life sentence. The liver continues to make bile and the bile continues to flow down the common bile duct to the intestines to help in the digestion of fatty foods, etc. It just takes your body a bit to readjust to not having a pouch of stored bile and the common bile duct does dilate up a bit and tends to pouch a bit to store a bit for reserve so there is a slight chance that people that have had their GB removed can still form stones even though they no longer have a GB... just an FYI.

    I couldn't be a vegetarian as it just isn't for me. I grew up on a farm and we had lots of meat and potatoes. emoticon emoticon
Don, hope the doctor's appt is good tomorrow.
