surgery date soon
Feb 28, 2009hello everyone, well it's less than 48hrs till my surgery on monday march 1st. on clear liquids and starving. getting nervous now,hoping everything goes well and that they will be able to due rny laparoscopically,with no complications. doctor says i should be able to return to work in three weeks,which i need to do because i have tons of bills piling up.have missed alot of work last two years due to health,especially back problems.need to hook up printer so i can post before picture,to follow my progress.i've had lots of surgeries,but not quite sure what to expect post op with this one,i usually tolerate pain well,but have heard quite painful. i've had blood clots twice before,so doctor placed a filter in my large vein,going through my groin,to catch any if i get and they try to travel to lungs,and heart. watched rerun of this week's biggest loser tonite,had second thoughts that i could try to lose weight on my own again. however,with all this weight, makes it impossible to exercise much,due to back and foot pain. so, i guess on monday i start my new life's journey.
