I have lost 82 pounds! Went from a size 20/22 to a 10/12. This is an amazing journey.

2 Weeks Post Op

Nov 08, 2006

First Post OP Appointment: Weight Loss = 21 pounds. Blood Pressure 108/70 (I think I did that right).  Puree diet for 2 more mores. Able to eat tuna fish, scallops, cheese, turkey, soup). 

So here I am two weeks post op. Wow! I meant to start writing when I got home from the hospital, but time just got away from me. My surgery was on Monday Oct. 23rd at 7:30 AM(they took me to OR at 7:15). The worst part of it was getting the IV. I hate needles. I remember going into the operating room. I don't remember going to sleep. I remember waking up in recovery - my eyes were very blurry and I heard the nurse. I was in some pain and VERY HOT. I kicked off the blankets and she gave me pain meds. I was in my hospital room around 11:30 a.m. I was up walking by 6 PM Monday night. I was ready to walk. It wasn't bad at all. 

I woke up during the first night and walked again. 

When I got home, I was able to sleep in my bed with lots of pillows all around me. I only took 1/2 of a pain pill on Wednesday and Thursday. I walked my dog each morning with my husband for a good 20 minutes. 

Today is my first day back to work.
