    My surgery

    All,

    Had weight loss surgery on Thurs. Slowly getting better but feel really lousy. Was supposed to go home today but was delayed for a leak check. The drain they put in didn't drain a lot at first then did, necessitating a second look. Had to drink 400ml of juice with barium over several hours, followed by thick stuff right before getting a cat scan. Now waiting results. Hoping don't need 2nd surgery.

    Any thoughts and prayers would be appreciated.

    Did you have Gastric bypass?
    They make this sound like a walk in the park but it is not.

    Good luck either way.

    Prayers sent!

    Here's a few thoughts. I know several people who have had similar surgery and it has turned their lives around. One told me
    her diabetes disappeared almost immediately after the surgery (this is known to happen but the reason why is not known).
    One guy used to attend my martial arts class and though he was quite athletic, his size made working with him an unpleasant
    experience. He stopped attending and I didn't see him for about two years during which time he had the surgery. When I next ran into him I didn't recognize him at all. I'm told he retired and lives as a happy healthy ex-patriot near a nice beach in Mexico.

    So, hang in there now. Being in a hospital stinks. The process of recovering from surgery stinks. Nevertheless, you'll heal up one way or another, with or without additional surgery, and you will be much better off for the trouble.

    You're in my prayers, Noway. Get better soon! Before you know it you'll be on your way to health, awesomeness and possibly living on a beach in Mexico.
