UPDATE: November 28, 2000. Well I'm down to 260 lbs.. By the way, I am size 44. You know life is full of new experiences as my new body is taking shape. Not more than 3 months ago the largest size for me was size 52. And I had to squeeze in some styles. I've shopped in Marshall's and Ross and looked in the big man's sizes.

UPDATE: November 9, 2001 Well I'm back, as you know I had my other surgery (Abdominoplasty) on October 11, 2001. I was scheduled at 7:30 am on Thursday morning. I arrived at the hospital at 6:30 a.m. As soon as I arrived, I was asked to strip and then was given a gown. The nurse started an IV drip then around 6:55 a.m. I was wheeled in to the operating room and moved on the operating table. After that I don't remember anything else until I was moved to my room at 3:00 p.m.
When I started preparing for the surgery. I was approximately 205 pounds.

The next day (Friday) I got up to sit in a chair and I was a weak. It was difficult getting up, however, I did it. Everyday after that was much easier. On Saturday morning my surgeons came in to see how I was doing, I asked questions like how much weight did you remove? He told me that they measure in ml but they removed somewhere between 6-7 pounds. WOW.
On Sunday morning I got up and walked around the unit and then sat in a chair for 5 hours. My Dr. come in and removed one of the drains and said I would be able to go home on Monday, October 15th and needed to come back on Friday, October 19th to remove the other drain. He also wanted to know when the drain stops draining before Friday. Well it did on Wednesday, October 17th so I had it removed.
I had another office visit with one of the surgeons on Monday, October 29, 2001 she was very pleased with the surgery. The scars looked good. So she set up another office visit for December 17, 2001.
Today date is October 30, 2001 everything is looking great. Swelling has subsided and I'm very pleased with the results. No serious complications and I can say this was all worth it. I wear an abdominal binder during the day, it keeps the swelling to a minimum and supports the incisions for another month or so. I'm trying to wear the binder at night, I'm not quite used to it. As you can see my recovery is going very smooth, thank God. Until next time, God Bless.
Hey everybody!! Ok, I lost all of my up to date information. So it looks like I'll be starting over again from today.
