Well the deed is done. Do I feel better? Oh yea!! I can stand better and my upper back has not hurt since thursday morning. I went to the doctor today and he told me he removed 3 lbs rt side and 2 lbs lt side. I almost fainted. I thought it would be 800 grams each side but once he started there was more weight then even he thought. Now I know why my back and shoulders hurt so bad. 5 lbs of weight hanging around my neck. I know it is hard for men to grasp but take a five pound weight and walk around with it for a day and you will see. They most definitely are smaller.
Now to the Bummer part. I got home the next day and that night I weighed myself. Big mistake!! I knew I was retaining fluid in the hospital, But You take off the 5 lbs for lost breast tissue and the 7 lbs the scale said I gained and that is 12 lbs. It is slowly going down ,so I 'm not really worried. It is just a little freaky when you have to look at it. Loose your breasts and gain 7 lbs on the scale. Oh well I'll weigh next week and maybe it will be a truer weight.
I'm not planning on putting it on my tracker coz I don't consider it a fair or true weight loss. It maybe painful and take a while , but it nothing compared to what we all go thru everyday in our struggled to grasp and maintain a new way of life and the weight loss that goes with it. There is no comparison.
I would like to thank the friends who talked me through this because they had experienced it and had the insight I need. They know who they are and I will thank them again later. I would also like to thank my teams old and new for all their support on all the issues that we face daily. You are all my friends and have made my life so much more fun and full. To all the Bright Sparks that are in my world Thank You.
