It only took about two minutes after leaving the hospital after my gastric sleeve surgery for me to want Chinese food. Can you really blame me though? I mean that stuff is amazing. The amount of oil left on your chin after your first bite is miraculous. I should back up though.
I decided that I wanted to get weight loss surgery in October of 2013 and after several months of pretending I was dieting and then REALLY making life changes I was finally ready. I had my sleeve gastrectomy on March 4th 2014 at Newton Wellesley Hospital and spent the next 3 days recovering there. The pain meds were great but the nurses and my family's support were better. I returned home in pretty good shape minus the 6 holes I now have in my stomach which make it quite painful to walk. I haven't showered in 3 days but who really needs it anyway. Thats what deodorant is for right? At least I can pee on my own! Poop is a different story but we won't go there now.
As I rest at home being both waited on and nagged by the mother about the amount of water I have failed to drink today, I have decided to write this blog. My decision to get surgery was very heavily weighed (no pun intended) on others bloggers journeys through this experience. I hope to be writing often as I am only on day 3 at home and have already finished all episodes of Say Yes to the Dress and am only 3 episodes away from finishing What Not to Wear.
If any of you ever have topics you want me to touch upon as I share this journey please comment and let me know. For now I will leave you with my before picture.. good luck
