Surgery Date: 11/05/2017
Its been a whirlwind two days for me. I had an apt yesterday afternoon with the Bariatric pre-op nurse and then the standard pre-op nurse. I was feeling pretty calm about it, thinking my surgery was likely still a few months away. Much to my surprise I was offered a date of the 11 of May due to a cancellation. I hesitated at first because I was so shocked. But then I was like well yeah lets go for it! I'm not sure if I am excited or nervous. More like a little numb.
This means today I started the two week liver shrinking diet. It has actually been easier then I thought It would be. But I imagine it will be worse tomorrow. I read some advice on the boards that says you just got to white knuckle it. My knuckles are so frikkin white.
Work has been really cool about the time off which is a relief. I was told I could be off for 4-6 weeks after for recovery. Management was find with that and is being super supportive.
Weighed myself this morning and I was at 268. Looking forward to seeing that number coming down.
