I can't believe that I'm 2 month out already!
You're not going to believe this but my incision is STILL draining. However, I consider myself lucky that it's nothing more serious.
I've been doing great with food. No issues at all. I am very careful about what I eat though. I've never thrown up (hate that) and never dumped.
I believe I've lost about 40 pounds. I bought a couple of sweaters to wear back to work. I had been wearing a 3X when I had surgery but now I bought mostly 2x'S. I had posted about a dressing room disaster on the Mass board and someone replied that they had some clothes that were too big and I could have them if I wanted. Thank you Laurie. So, Laurie and I met at a local book store and she gave me some clothes. I wish more people were doing this. It's so expensive to buy new clothes that you will only wear for a couple of months. So yes, I'd meet anyone, anywhere to be able to do this. I think we should also do it at our support group meetings.
My energy is slowly starting to return. That was the hardest part.
I returned to work on Feb. 26th. The first couple of weeks were hard as I was so tired when I got home but that's been getting better too.
When I look in the mirror I don't notice my weight loss. Others do though so I'm happy about that.
That's all for now...........
