I only know of 1 person who said they regretted having the surgery! She was mad because she did not think that she had to do anything. She thought the surgery would take care of the obesity. Not sure how she passed her psych eval!
I continue to work harder than I ever have in the past. It takes hard work and having to really address your food issues and learn new ways! But I donot regret having done it at all!
I am grateful for this surgery.

Well, it is back to work on Tuesday night. It actually will be good to get back into my routine again. Bored at home-even though I have been getting acquanted with my pouchie.
I wear my fitbit zip at work and that keeps track of all my walking steps at work-and we do alot there. I am going to keep a little notepad in my lunch kit at work to keep track of my protein at work, etc.

Carol, Try to prop a pillow behind your back and have one in front for your arm to rest on. It will support you and you will be able to better sleep on your side. I too am a side sleeper.

I had Gastric Bypass on 12/17/12 and was discharged from the hospital on 12/21.
Right now I could pretty much mug for some refried beans!

Jan 3rd is my first post-op visit with both surgeon and dietician and so my diet will be upped then. Yay!

I hope all had a great Merry Christmas!

I had the sleeve on 12/07. I had this initial craving and was asking my husband to stop at every restaurant we passed. It stopped as I realized I could still eventually eat. The cream soups in phase 2 made a big difference.

Congratulations!
Which surgery did you have? I had the Sleeve Gastrectomy 17 months ago. The pain will go away soon. You are on a great journey and I am so excited for you.

Happy Holidays!

I had my surgery and I got home that Friday. They took out my Gall Bladder as well due to the stones they found on the Ultrasound.

I am sore especially when I get in and out of bed. Can't lay on my favorite side to go to sleep-have to sleep on my back.

Sip, sip, sipping.
