I went for my 9 month check up. I am happy to be down 101 pounds. I have been busting my butt in the gym. Only downfall is that I found out I have to have surgery in 6 months to repair my hernia. Its really big.

I got the G-tube out today. Im so relieved. I told the doctor if he didnt take it out, I was going to take it out myself. Lost 6 more pounds. Seems like a pound every 2 days. I am happy with that.

So I went to the doctor on Thursday. Down 30 pounds...yay...BUT!!!!! He will not take this G-Tube out until the 17th. Can you believe that? I cant. I have to have this thing hanging out of my body for that much longer. The doctor will be on vacation next week so I have to wait until he gets back. Still sick to my stomach every day. I read some posts on the message boards. Some people were sick for 2 months...Man! I am so ready to feel back to normal. Im stressing because I do not get barely any protein in and Im scared about hair loss. Its is so hard to eat anything. I have medicine for nausea but it doesnt work that good. Im going to call the doctor and see if he can prescribe something different. Im anxious to tell people that this was worth it. Right now I cant.
1 month out....not so great

So I am back to work....This sucks....I didnt have a smooth surgery. Never smooth sailing for me...I ended up staying in the hospital for 9 DAYS!!!!!!!! Terrible...I had the surgery on Monday and afterwards the doctor tells me that I have a hernia. He didnt do anything to it during the surgery. So Tuesday im not feeling so good. Im spitting up bile then started throwing up bile. Not fun. Wednesday comes emergency surgery to clear up the obstructions. Seems like the doctor should have done something with the hernia the first time. The surgery was to temporarily repair the hernia and clear up the obstructions due to the hernia. So I woke up to an extra 3inch incision.
So now 4 weeks later, I am still having problems. I have to get another CT scan to make sure there is no fluid build up and I STILL have a g-tube hanging out of my stomach. It should come out Thursday. I keep telling myself it will get better. I have a hard time sleeping, eating and drinking. 40g of protein? YEAH RIGHT...I dont get the recommended anything in. All I can do at this point is hope that it will get better. I made the mistake of drinking regular lemonade!!! No sugar for me at all...The dumping syndrome is the worst feeling. I have had it a few times. As of last Thursday I was down 27 pounds. I dont have a scale at home. I need to get one. I will get weighed again this Thursday. I dont think I will be happy until I lose another 30 pounds. Why did I let myself get this big...

So I have less then 2 weeks to go until my surgery. I gained ALOT of weight since I began my journey. I tell myself, these are the last times I can eat like this but I dont want to gain anymore weight. I have to stop eating so much...Geez...Im real excited to get this done. Im beyond tired of the extra weight.
