Dec 18, 2010Ok... here we go. It's Saturday, December 18, 2010. I'm going into the hospital this Monday afternoon for revision. Dr. Prickett is going to attempt an anastomosis of the stapled area... barring that, he will do an RNY Bypass. Strange that I don't feel much one way or another about the surgery. I'm nervous, for sure... but that's normal with any surgery. I dread the pain... it's has to be invasive since my last surgery was. Too much scar tissue in the way.
It's silly, but I think the worst part will be not eating or drinking ANYTHING from midnight on Sunday night. What... no Pepsi.. no juice, no water... they don't know me very well, do they?
I think I will take my computer with me so I can update how I'm feeling. Provided I feel well enough to even bother. I just hope I can make myself get up out of that bed and walk. I know how important that is... but I also know how bad the pain is going to be. And I know they will take away my morphine pump after the second day post-op... meanies.
So, hopefully and prayerfully, I will be back in a few days with an update. If you read this prior to my surgery date, please pray for me. Thanks.
God Bless to everyone of us going through with the WLS battle.
