Hello Everyone, I have just returned from my 1 week visit with my surgeon. My surgery was on 8/28 at CMC, Nashville, TN. Dr. Olsen was my Dr. He is absolutely wonderful. He has been so helpful and so supporttive, answering all questions, and even calling to check on me after I had to make a visit to the ER, (all my fault, I didn't take pain meds) Anyway, when I went today my first visit, I had lost 20 lbs. overall I feel good, still have a little pain in the incission sites. I am now on my week two liquids I do not like the Advant shake, believe it or not, I had no problem with the Iso Pure, but the shake, is difficult for me.
Please continue to keep me in your prayers. This is going to be a great journey.
~~~~~~CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR UPCOMING SURGERY~~~~~~ (Everything in our lives happens for a purpose and that purpose is to prepare us) May God give you courage, strength and guidance throughout your new journey.
