Default weightloss surgery part 2

since I am now going into the diet and surgery aspect I thought I would continue here.

I have started the liquid diet yesterday... this is harder than I thought. I broke down 3 times just at the thought of having a meal. now I am up at 0324 just finished having some broth and a fudgecicle. sometimes I wanna quit but thats dumb I have come so far jumping thru all the hoops and needing this done for health benefits.

Once surgery is done I keep the liquid diet for 2 more weeks before I can add a few things in like eggs and cottage cheese.

Thanks for listening

We just had a relatively young, obese patient drop dead over-night. It really shocked us all, and drove home how important it is to take care of ourselves. We have to do it for ourselves. This is your step in the right direction. It takes one step at a time. Remember, the first bite of something that is bad for you, is the only one you have to resist.

today is the day.... surgery at 12 noon central. I have to be there at 1030. I am hungry and thirsty I cant have anything to eat or drink I would have slept longer but my brain will not let me. I can have one more sip of water but thats for taking my xanax later I dont wanna take it too soon tho I am feeling more antsy by the min so it might be sooner than Id like

I will post again after surgery

Surgery is done. Pain level was thru the roof, took three doses of morphine and one dilaudid to bring it under control. Walked three laps around the halls so far. Will keep you updated.
