  1. Thank you for your replies. I'm very aware of everyone's journey and recovery being different. I was trying to get an idea on average of how everyone felt and the capabilities. I'm excited about the surgery but very nervous and apprehensive about all the possible complications that I have read about from others. I'm sure it's just "do the best I possibly can, prepare for the best and/or worst and wait and see" at this point. Thank you again.
  2. Hi everyone. Long time lurker, first time posting. Question - how were you feeling 1 week out from RNY? I'm having surgery next Weds the 16th. My mother-in-law just passed away Friday and they scheduled her service and funeral for Weds the 23rd. They know I'm having surgery but I just told them for a hernia from my appendix that ruptured last year. My hubby is the only one that knows the truth. We are also going to a restaurant after for a luncheon and I'll be on purees then, so I'm going to be bringing my water bottles, protein and food in a lunch bag with me. Thank you in advance.
