ok, Day 4 post op - feeling hungry

May 14, 2009

Well, got home from the hospital yesterday afternoon and am feeling really good.  Just a little pain on my left side abdomen.  other than that feeling great.  The drugs are what kicked my but, but once i got them out of my system, felt like myself.  Everyone is telling me I don't look or sound like i just had major surgery done.  Anyway, i continue to sip sip sip.  I never have sipped so much.  my stomache and intestines are gurgling.  I guess it's a good thing since things are moving along.  I woke up today from a nap starving.  I sat here all day and watched tv and all of the yummy commercials....i have head hunger for sure.  I'm not physically hungry, but my head wants chicken parm and lime tostitos in the worse way.  I won't give in.  I pulled out my doc info and i can start on soft protein on week 3.  I already have planned ground chicken with ricotta and some garlic salt.  That sounds soooo good to me right now.  Refried beans sound like HEAVEN.  Anyway, doing rather well.  I hope to report some weight loss next week after my post op appointment on Thursday.

Anxiously Waiting

Ok, so i'm anxiously awaiting my last weight appointment next Thursday....I guess that will make or break me.  A few obstacles left....1, sending my paperwork for approval.....and actually deciding which surgery....I was dead set to get rny, but at my last weigh in in March, they gave me a hard surgery date of May 13 with bootcamp on May 7....All of a sudden I was terrified and started having doubts.  I started looking back at the band....but i can say at this moment, i am pretty much set to get rny.  I am still scared that something is going to go wrong and I am thinking what in the hell am i doing??? But then again, my life long feeling takes over and I know why I'm doing what I'm doing.....
