I'm new to this team, not to SP.

I am just recovering from several surgeries (5) on my knee after a knee replacement. I, too, had infection -- and just like Beth -- managed to function, but when the doctor actually took the knee out (4th surgery), it seemed that the infection had gone into the bone. This was serious, but it could have been worse if I hadn't had such a great surgeon.

I weighed about 334 pounds when I had the initial surgery. Doctors don't like to perform such surgeries on very obese patients. My doctor never said a word, only that the knee replacement should occur when the quality of life is so hampered by pain.

But because I asked him, he said the reason doctors hesitate to do the surgery -- some refuse -- is that it is more likely that overweight people are more likely to get infections -- cellulitis -- in such surgeries.

Many people might argue this, but I believe it may be true. Like I said, my doctor never said a word until asked, but when asked that was his answer. And I am only a layman and have probably not done justice to his explanation.

I do hope Beth improves. I had quite a fight on my hands. Infusions for two hours a day, twice a day for several months.

But I have a knee now and we're working really hard to make sure we monitor it so that I won't have the problem again.

What a long and boring way to get started with a new group. Please excuse my windiness. I do go on. emoticon emoticon

Good Morning Everyone,
Looks like we may get some substantial rain today. I took down the umbrellas, flag, and chairs just in case. Now watch, it won't even sprinkle here......

Sparkle, I hope you really enjoyed your vacation..... and I still wish I had just an ounce of your energy!

UPDATE ON BETH:
Beth had an infection set up in her surgical incisions and had to be placed on antibiotics. The doctor re-opened the wounds and cleaned them out and re-stitched them again. As soon as I hear anything new or she starts to post, I will try to keep you all up to date.

FRECKLE10 ..... That's fantastic! Your doing very well too. My doctor only wants me losing 1 - 1.5 pounds each week. Apparently the pounds stay off better

Jeanne ..... Thank you for your concern and caring. Mom is getting better but very slowly. At 93, things just do not spring back like they should.
Shingles..... UGH! I hate this disease! I thank the good Lord for allowing me to have such a small outbreak! If mine had been the size of a fist I would have been in bed the whole time. I think the worst part is staying away from everyone and the bone deep tired feeling that seeps in whenever I try to get up and move. Going outside in the heat is NOT something I can get away with either. I have gained back 4 of the 10 pounds I lost this month because I can't get up and walk AND because I am having on and off pity parties :(

UPDATE on Beth....

Beth is out of recovery and not doing very well.
The doctor went in and cleaned out her knew area but found that the damage there is going to require a complete knee replacement. Unfortunately when Beth went to shower yesterday she found infection setting in to the surgical area.
Needless to say she is on antibiotics and is going in for a follow up this morning. I will keep you posted as much as possible until she can get back to the team.....

Thanks for the update on Beth that you gave us Deb! I'm sorry you had the shingles outbreak! I had one once and OH MY talk about painful. My spot was just the size of a large fist and I cried my eyes out! I hope and pray your momma gets the wind back beneath her wings so she can recover fully!

Have a Terrific Thursday all!

Beth (INDYGIRL) is out of surgery and recovering well. It didn't go well when they got inside the knee, the damage was worst than expected but that's her story to tell.
Just know she is recovering and should be back on soon.

I was off my WIFI all day yesterday and that drove me crazy! I apologize yet again for my inability to get on like I would like too.....

I'm glad you and DH get to go and enjoy life!

TY everyone for the special prayers sent for me and the family..... Mom is out of sergury, staples have been removed, and she is very week. At 93, I fear that she has given up on a difficult recovery and that makes us all sad..... She is just so tired emoticon

I am on the down hill side of the Shingles outbreak and doctor said that another week or week and a half should get me out of isolation and then I can go see mom emoticon

I pray each of you have been well and going strong n my absence......

If you had a bad day at work, you wouldn't quit your job or take off for a few days at a time. So why do we do that with our healthy plans? At work, if we did that- absolutely nothing would get done and business would grind to a halt because EVERYONE has bad days. The trick is to not say "tomorrow I'll..." Or even next week. Think in terms of a GPS that tells you when you get off track to proceed to the next legal u turn and get back on track. Why? The further you drive in the wrong direction, the longer it takes to get where you are going.

Well, at the hospital this whole week for internal bleeding in the colon. They put a clamp in on a blood vessel that had broken and I still lost a lot of blood. Still weak and cramping. Had to move my knee surgery to the end of next month to build back my blood and strength.

Gained weight from the saline drip they had me on and the FULL calorie diet with no restrictions. I had no will power, as the food was so good. You would have thought I had never seen cookies or pancakes before. I'm transitioning down instead of going cold turkey down by lowering my calories closer to my range each day. I'm not a cold turkey kind of girl because it makes me feel trapped and unsuccessful, like I can't do this thing.

Everything I do is in moderation and slow. You need to love the journey of becoming who you are meant to be... discovering what it is about a fitter lifestyle that you enjoy. Just because your friends enjoy it or a star recommends it, doesn't mean it will work for you in your lifestyle. What works is what you have to uncover. I always say to read 100 diet books and take what you like and leave the rest. That's how you get your custom plan. Take time to discover YOUR fit life.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now. ~Indygirl

(peeking out from behind a bush....) emoticon I know I have been very quiet lately but I am struggling a bit and while I'm doing okay with the eating, I'm having a bit of a tussle with my bipolar. I tend to kind of pull back a bit because it takes most of my concentration to battle with that. I am still here and still fighting the good fight with both my weight and the bipolar!

Have a spectacular day all!

8 is my stress level today. (I KNOW this is not really a BIG deal, but it is to me!) I'm stressing over the fact that I may NOT fit into the skirt I want to wear to an upcoming wedding, Aug. 9. I've GAINED weight from trying to get down. It's not good for my emotions. I may just have to give it up & wear something else. I can't let it out, 2" in hips. It fit when I am at low goal... that is 11 #'s away. Today on SP was an article "Are your skinny jeans good for you?" It helped me ALLOT!!!! Also, looking at photos of myself, 51 pounds heavier! I'm doing GREAT, now!

emoticon

7-12-15 I'm realizing I need to rehearse my marionettes, as I'm not performing, weekly. 1 day I will wake up & someone will say, "Can you perform, tomorrow? " I NEED to ALWAYS be performance ready! Goal, 3X a week. See blog dated 7-12-15 for more on this incite, if you have time!

Deb - you're going to need a waterproof sunscreen...... maybe the water baby sunscreen?

I'm finally getting a handle on working out and trying hard with the eating. I'm tracking everything but some days are better than others. My one year anniversary and my 46th birthday are tomorrow and in that year I have dropped 70 pounds and that is a great gift to give myself so I am not beating myself over the head for my minor screw ups!

Good Morning Everyone!

Michele, They are a great bunch of friends!

I am having an issue this week.....
I have wanted to get back into swimming and doing my water exercises but every time I get into the pool now I burn. I am on a bunch of meds I take each day that am positive are the issue.

The question is...... What kind of sunscreen can I use to stop this?

I am burning across my shoulders and across my chest. I expected those areas to get some sun but I am also burning behind my knees and on my upper calves below my knees. It makes no since to me except that I must be getting some sunrays slipping through the water to the back of my legs.......

I am dark skinned by nature and sunburns are not something I have had issues with much in the past......
