Sorry that I didn't update before but it's been a very hard time for me... up to this point I wouldn't recommend this surgery to ANYBODY!!!!!!! this has been the worst desition of my life!!! they don't tell half of what we will go through after surgery... at the time of the surgery my liver was rupture and I was in a coma for two days... they did another surgery two days later after the gastric bypass surgery to fix my liver.... I lost all my blood and almost die!!! since the day of my surgery on Jan/31/03 I have lost almost 50 pounds and still.... this surgery is not worth it!!!! I was such a happy person before this... now I'm sad all the time because I don't feel good, I don't have any energy what so ever, I feel weak... everything that I used to do by myself before, I can no longer do it... I need help almost for everything... there is no way in this world that can prepare anybody for this surgery... I was treated like a cattle in the hospital too... I will never have the right words to describe how I really feel and how this surgery has affected my life and that of my family... the only thing I could say is... "IS NOT WORTH IT"!!!!!!!

Good luck on your coming surgery. My prayers are with you, and hoping for an uneventful surgery, and a speedy, painfree recovery. Keep your focus on healing. Make sure you walk, and keep up your breathing exercise. YOU CAN DO THIS! See you on the other side.
