My surgery was on March 15-2012 I had the weight loss surgery as well as an umbilical hernia and a Hyiatel (sp?) surgery repair. When I went into surgery I had by my side my sister and my husband. My middle daughter called from out of town to wish me well. After recovery I was taken to my room where my sister and husband awaited.
It was requested by the hospital that someone stay with me so my husband said he would stay the first two days and my sister the last two. Well, it is a long story but after the first night I was alone until discharge.
It has now been 3 weeks since the surgery, I am not as sore anymore but I know struggle daily with trying to get in my daily amount of protein grams as well as all my medicine which I must still take for awhile longer. I am fortunate on the one habd that the hunger gland was removed. I no longer experience hunger. On the other hand because I do not feel hunger, I forget to eat! In the evening when I do force myself to eat I can barely get a very small amount in me and then I often experience 'Dumping'
My family all have told me I am loosing weight, where I wonder to myself, I still look like the Goodyear Blimp! When I look in the mirror I do not see any changes yet although my boobs feel smaller!
