5 Days Post-Op

Jul 15, 2008

Well, as of today I am 5 days post op! Everything went well. My biggest complaint is that I am a little sore from the hiatal hernia repair that had to be done. Other than that I'm great! I walk everyday and try to drink and eat all that I am suppose to. Sometimes it is hard to get all the liquids in because I just feel so darn full! My doctor was amazing! If your in GA I definatley recommend you go to Dr. Paul Macik! Not only did he ease my fears he was very good with the whole process! I go to him on the 24th for my post-op and I will keep everyone posted on my progress! Thanks to everyone for all of your prayers and well wishes! Love ya all!

Today put me a step closer to the BIG day! I met with my surgeon for my pre-op and found out that I have lost 15 pounds!! 15 pounds gone forever! I also found out that I have a hiatal hernia that he is going to have to repair while he is doing my RNY. (Thank God for all of the tests that are performed prior to surgery.) I never expected this but I guess this is a good thing. He also started me on Previcid for my acid reflux.

I have also decided it is finally time for a change in my employment. I discussed this with my husband and was given the go ahead to make any changes that will make me happy! Of course I have to think of my financial role in our household that my job provides.

Anyhow, wish me luck tomorrow I have my pre-op with the bariatric clinic and the hospital. (The final stages before I'm a new woman!)

Pre-Surgery Diet

Jun 22, 2008

Well, today I am starting my diet required by my surgeon. I can have only eggs, cheese, any meat and green vegetables. 

I went for my last good dinner last night with the family and it was soooo good! But I know that I will be much healthy and beautiful when I have met my goal!

My husband started taking pics yesterday of me so I could do a diary of my weight lose. I've always been camera shy but I have told him to go crazy with the pics so we could see the progress!

I'll keep every posted as my journey continues!
