So I've been kind of busy with all sorts of appointments. But the morning of my surgery this past Tuesday, I was weighing in at 224.0. In total I lost 6 lbs. while on my pre-op diet. I'm okay with that. A loss is a loss.
So the day of surgery, I was scheduled to be there at 9:15am for surgery to start at 11:15am. Unfortunately my surgeon got behind with other revision surgeries, so I didn't go in until about 4ish or so. I stayed overnight in my own room and the staff was wonderful. I was weighed after the surgery and up to 229.2 but that was probably due to all the fluids they had pumped in me. So I figured I'd step on the scale this morning and I'm down to 222.4.
I will do my best not to become over obsessed with the scale... <<< Haha. So I'm working on getting 64 ounces of water in and protein. I do have to say that this surgery feels a little harder compared to the LapBand. Maybe its because I'm older, I don't know. But it feels like I did 1,000 crunches or something. And all the gas from it, seems to be stuck in my stomach... no where near my shoulder area. Thankfully, I have Gas-X strips. Thinking of it, need to take my prilosec. I actually feel a little better this evening. It is all about walking, sipping water, walking, sipping more water.
Overrall... I'm just resting. But figured I'd update on here.
