  1. Actually I think two weeks was perfect for me. That's all I took. Just enough time for stiches to heel enough to shower well. I started by walking to the stop sign and back, then around the corner, and ultimately further. I would do the short walks every hour or two the first few days just because I was by myself and didn't want to go too far and have trouble. But really, I didn't feel much pain after second day. No dizziness at all. I had my son come and drive me to the store but i had bought everything I needed before hand. Not much to buy really since not much fits after surgery.
  2. Me 2. I remember shedding a tear as I was being transfered to the bed in the operating room. It was a thankful tear and i was thanking those around me. I was quite emotional in a grateful way. I thought it was nice that two there said they had the sleeve too a few years back.
  3. by the way ... you look awesome. Good for you and your loss
  4. I got dropped off and picked up so.... The first hours i was feeling bad that I was alone but as the pain grew strong and the nurses came in hour after hour and I was tired, practically naked, and walking stupid laps I had an 'aha moment'.... Amen that I'm alone cuz I could barely handle myself. I think the alone time with ME actually helped me grip the reality of my decision. I got myself into this mess and I would have to get myself out. Of course my problem was that I chose not to tell many people and my insurance made me go to a hospital and doctor 3 hours away. If all was closer maybe I would have welcomed some visitors but overall I think my decision made me stronger.
