Well I currently live on Maui. I grew up in Kahuku on Oahu then moved back and forth between California and Hawaii after my parents got divorced. Anyhow I've been married to my Robert for 5 years now and I know it will be another 50!!! I cannot wait to have WLS I absoulutely cannot wait I am so excited I have been big all my life. Well in 6th grade I wore a size 7 pants and had a D chest so I think that was my best!! hehe!! I am ready to run around in a bathing suit!! If it kills me damnit!!! I am willing to take any suggestions, comments , or anything you have to tell me about the surgery!! I am almost done with all my appt. and classes, I have 1 nutrition class, 2 webstiles, and 1 more visit with my BMC. And thats it!!! Oh and 1 more blood work to make sure my Folic Acid levels are higher. Thats all!! I am gonna go crazy waiting!! just kidding it's worth the wait, I would rather do all this than go in blind, Kaiser is wonderful!!!!!!!!!!
Well I have been home for 2 months now and I finally return to work on Sunday. I can only pray I am strong enough now to make it through my shifts. we will see. The Doctor didn't want to give me my release but I told her I cannot stay home anymore or I am gonna go nuts, not to mention I am SOOOOOOOOO broke its not even funny. But since I have been home lets see~~~~ I had to chop all my hair off as you can see because it wasn't taken care of and I had a huge dreadlock in the back of my head. My hair was down to my ass and I was really bummed. Then I couldn't barely sleep I got addicted to the crazy liquid Oxycodone they gave me. First of all tey told me to take it every 3 hours regardless of if I hurt because it works better if you take it that way. Then I was never told that you had to wean off of it so I just stopped taking it when I ran out and OH MY FUCKING GOD it was awful. I went thru withdraw like a heroin addict I had the restless leg syndromme for 3 days straight, felt like I had been in a fist fight with the stomach flu then ran over by a truck. Couldnt eat or sleep prettty much a sick awful experience. I ended up taking Methadone I got from an unknown souce LOL and immediately was better. That lasted about 6-7 days. Even though I had asked my Dr what I could take to ease some of the pain she said there wasnt anything and represcribed me the pain meds again. JEEEZZ. I have lost about 60 pounds in 2 and a half months, about 80 for the year I love the way I am starting to look but I feel like crap all of the time. I am having major back problems there is this wierd mark the shape and almost size of a boomerang on my back and ther is some kind of fluid in it, my shoulder is numb as well as my thigh and my DR just says I was in bed along time and that is what its from~~ BULLSHIT. I have been home for 2 months and even when I was in the hospital I was on one of the wierd air beds that move so I wouldnt get any bedsores. So my surgeon said it is not from being in bed and I am being referred to a surgeon to look at my back as well as a physiatrist for the numbness. This surgery has caused ALOT of problems for me. I already have BAD scoliosis that w thought would get better with the weight loss and we are now figuring out that the weight was actually cushioning my spine and I am in worse pain than I ever have been in. So I take Oxycdone daily, and it sucks but whatever. The eating is not bad I got lucky and not alot of foods make me sick I can pretty much eat anything just not very much like a baby portion LOL. But I am not hungry so it works. I am just so FUCKING sick of going to the DR and I got lucky I have GOOD health insurance saying my hospital bill was $$181,000 that is alot of fucking money its 4,000 dollars a day to be in Crital care and thats just for the room. Then my 1 surgery turned to three didn't help. My portion was a whomping $800.00 and that was for blood transfusions. Anyhoo I guess its time to stop bitching and be happy about geting sexy hehe.
Well work is not bad I actually prefer going to work I am finally gettting strong again. I feel so much better now! Its so wierd how different I look. I catch myself in a window or something and don't even recognize its me sometimes. Double take!! Thank goodness a friend who also had the surgry had given me so many CUTE girly clothes. I have never worn pink until now lol. Well off to work I go!!
