I'm home

Hey all, I'm back from the hospital! Overall the surgery went well. I had one complication--there was bleeding where the pouch was attached to the intestine, but a couple small metal clamps took care of that. I'm very tired still and quite sore. My pain meds---horrid stuff, tastes like rubbing alcohol smells--helps immensely. I'll update with weight loss when I know, as I went in about 248 and after the IV fluids and gas to expand my abdomen, I am 262. While the pain and sleepiness kinda suck (ok so the pain sucks a whole lot!), it feels great to be on the losers bench! :D:D

Thanks Ali and Tabitha. Feeling a little better today, which is a trend I'm anticipating to continue.

I went in Mon at 340 and came out Weds almost 352. Today (Fri) I am at 341. I'm still so tired. Drinking is interfering with my napping!

Hang in there Jennifer! We'll heal together!

Welcome home!! Give yourself some time before rushing over to the scale. For me, it's a lot of added stress when there's added weight from the IVs, etc so I am going to do what I'm supposed to and worry about all that at my first post op appt. on the 19th. But I went thru all this to get healthy, not lose the most amount of weight first. My pain meds are really taking over, so I may not make much sense... I'll probably have to come back and edit at some point lol :) I hope you have a quick recovery!

Hey Serena and Trisha, I'm glad to hear you're doing well. I'm still in a bit of pain. I thought for sure I'd be done with the prescription pain meds by now, but I'm not. Time will get me there. For now, I'm sleepy (again!) so I think I'm gonna head to bed. Hope you're all doing well!
