Post-Op Week 1
April 17, 2011 8:44 pm
Well this is week one of my journey...so far so good.  The only complaint I really have at this point is that I am growing very sick and tired of broth and jello! UGH! But I do like watching my weight drop every day.  I find myself growing more hungry every day tho as my stomache heals and I can take in more liquids.  I am really hoping that I will feel full when I start the full liquids because I am not getting full from broth...this does not surpise me! 

So far down about 5 pounds in week one. Not bad.

My Story

My name is Sarah, I am 31, married to the love of my life Paul, and we currently reside in Stillwater, MN.  I have been overweight my ENTIRE life.  I have never known what it's like to be thin or skinny.  On April 12th, 2011 I had the VSG done at the University of MN.  This was a very difficult decision for me to make....even though I have always been overweight I wasn't sure I wanted to put my body through this and take the risks that go along with bariatric surgery.  I currently work as a RN in a surgical ICU, I have seen bariatric surgery gone bad....the thought of putting myself in that position scared the hell out of me.  However, after turning 30, and beating cancer, I had decided I have had enough of living this life as an overweight person.  Beating cancer was a huge part of my decision...in September of 2008 I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, one of the most curable forms of cancer you can get.  I had no fear going through chemo and radiation that I was going to die...my doctors were all very optimistic as was I.  But in the end I had a new outlook on life....That it's way too short and you never know when your time is up...so enjoy it.  I had decided at that point that as a fat person, I was not enjoying my life....I want kids, I want to be active, run, exercise, and have fun! Not sit on the sidelines and in the shade.  So here I am...post-op day 3, and happy as can be to start a new life.
