What a trip this is turning out to be!
My surgery was more complicated than expected...once they had me on the table they discovered I NASM or fatty liver disease. My liver is twice the normal size which made my surgery much more difficult...a 1-2 hour surgery turned into 5 hours!
I am so thankful for my surgeon as he was determined to complete the surgery even with my enlarged liver so I could begin a new healthy life.
My hospital stay did confirm that I am not a very good patient...I am grumpy and cannot handle pain. I cried and yelled at many nurses...my poor family was just exhausted with me.
My healing is going well except for my back. I still have numbness and stiffness from being on the table for 5 hours, but it is getting better each day.
The best news is that I have lost a total of 42 pounds so far!!!!
I am looking forward to more weight melting away and getting healthier each day!
