1 month Post-Op & -29 Lbs

Jan 16, 2010

Has it been a month already?!  I can't believe how fast the days have come and gone but trust me I am NOT complaining. (LOL)   I can still remember my surgery day as if it was yesterday.  Ohhhh the terrible GAS!! The first week was thee hardest but then to add to the pain I cought the stinkin flu!!  I wanted to die but I'm so blessed to have so much family that helped me pull through.  It was hard learning how to eat, especially not drinking while eating...boy did I learn that one fast!  And another lesson learned was to SLOW DOWN, I never paid any attention to how fast I ate but that was another lesson I learned quickly.  I never thought I would say this but lately eating has become more of a chore, I'm running out of ideas of what to eat.  I'm so sick of eggs, the smell and even the very thought of eating an egg makes me queezy. 

Well as of today I'm down 29 lbs, not sure if this is normal or not but I have another follow-up with Dr. Rabkin on the 27th of this month so I'm sure they'll let me know if I'm on the wright track as far as my weight loss.  As for my energy level, well it's slowly getting better.  I've recently had my iron checked again, in the hospital I had to have 2 iron infusions because I'm anemic and my iron was really really low pre-op.  There's not to much for me to complain about, the only thing I miss it being able to drink while I eat.  But I'm sure eventually I'll get use to it. 

I don't know what I would've done without this website, it has been just as vital as my "Red Book"!  When ever I was experiencing something I wasn't sure was normal I'd have my hubby jump online and check, it's been a real lifesaver!  I think he really enjoys OH just as much as I do.
