Got a call from my dad last night. He hasn't wanted me to have the lap band, much less the revision. Generally, he shares his concerns, but supports my decision. He called to tell me that a church member's daughter had similar surgery that I am planning to have on Tues. and has had many complications, additional surgery and hospitalization. He doesn't have any specifics that we can discuss. But he is scared. I don't blame him. But no surgery is without risks. This is something I feel that I have to do.
I feel like I have done everything right this time. I have worked hard to lose half the weight ahead of time. I have been going to the gym and walking and am in good physical health. I am no longer on ANY medication. I am hoping that my efforts will make recovery go quicker. I cannot wait to get back to the gym, but know that I will have to be patient and take it one day at a time.
