I DID IT!!!!! AND MADE IT OUT OKAY. Feb. 1, 2012 I had the RNY gastric bypass, I was really nervous at first, but once I got into the O.R and heard everyone talking and all the action going on around me, I for some reason calmed down and said to myself " you made it this far, now there's no turning back." My doctor performed the surgery, i woke up in terrible, terrible pain!!! gives me chills just thinking about it. Immediately after I woke up I had to pee, no, i didn't have a catheter in....I had to go sooo freaking bad, and to top it off, I was in a hell of pain!! they wouldn't allow me to get up, because I was just put under general anesthesia, they said I would fall and hurt myself. So I began freaking out on them because they took sooo long to bring me a bed pan, and to top it off, my nurse and another nurse were sitting right in front of me conversing and laughing.(now i'm realy pissed)
So eventually I went to the bathroom!!! lol then I was brought upstairs to my room, up there, I experienced horrible gas pains, that night and 4 nights after. They told me that there was nothing they could give me for the gas, and the only thing that would get rid of it, is by me walking. As soon as they told me that, I jumped up, (sore stomach and all!) and began to walk, I walked so much that i was in more pain when I finished then i was when I begun. At this point I though I had made the biggest mistake of my life!!!! I cried, and cried again.
Today is Feb. 7th, 6 days post op, and I already lost 10 pounds since my surgery!!! And i'm feeling soooo much better. so after all it is so worth it!!! best decision i've made thus far. So those of you who are considering having WLS GO AHEAD, YOU WONT REGRET IT IN THE LONG RUN. Yes, you'll have your days where you think you've made a mistake, but just hold on, believe in yourself, and you'll soon see that you've made the RIGHT decision.
