This is for the hundreds of people who e-mail asking about me. First, I am soooo sorry I only can have 100 invites to the private site per blogger. I am making this un-private for a small time so I can update everyone. I can never express how much it means to me that perfect strangers care about me! What a joy and a blessing. All your words, prayers and concerns have warmed my heart. I love knowing that there are good people out there especially after being cyber bullied. I have a renewed faith in people. :)
Reminder.. I did NOT have the bypass or the band. I had the VSG. My update: I can now go potty by myself. lol I can get out of a chair by myself, but after a while it hurts to much to keep going. I am still in lots of pain, but it is getting a little better each day. I am on 2-3oz of broth and/or liquid protein only for the next month. I am supposed to drink about 60oz of water per day but that is very hard right now because I can only take small sips every 10 minutes or so. I was in the hospital for two nights and 3 days. I have been trapped at home since I left the hosp. I am stir crazy. My days consist of taking meds, vitamins, walking laps around my kitchen and resting. I feel useless. I am VERY sad and resentful that I cant eat. It hurts to watch my family eat around me. I have to stress that this is a huge life change and should not be done to your body for vanity purposes. I would NOT have done this if I and my dr/s didn't feel like my life was in danger. If you can walk, don't have heart problems etc, PLEASE try to commit yourself to a healthy life change without surgery or doing something to your body you can never take back. I was able to stay on a 1200 calorie diet for quite some time leading up to this surgery so I know it is possible, but the decision I made was for my life only. For those who say you are not hungry after surgery, don't count on that being true for everyone. I am starving. I cry for food. This is going to be a HARD journey. One I may hate most of the time. I wish I could share this with everyone, but I can't deal with bullying during such a hard time in my life. I appreciate everyone sooooo much for asking about me and hope to make this public again in the future when I feel it is safe to talk about my life without hate and ugliness being thrown my way. Again, I am NOT an expert on surgery and don't recommend it to others. I do recommend that everyone ask their dr. before doing ANY WL program in order to make an informed decision. I did this and moved forward the way I thought was best. I pray I made the right choice. Only time will tell.
