Well you don’t say! I am more than honored to be have been recognized for telling my ‘crazy’ truths. It’s truly been a humbling experience. I’ve put all of my good, bad, and the uglies all up on front street! So thank you for thinking of me! If anyone wants to read the ‘letter’ posted to me, it’s located under my Who I Am tab.
Well, I have an update from my fall. I have a torn MCL looks like; however, I need to do a MRI to see if I have torn my ACL. If i have, then it will require surgery. I am scared of pain meds, other than Tylenol or ibuprofen. I was given some to take yesterday, but just took it for the first time tonight. Now, I wish I had taken it last night. LOLOLOL I get hard head like that sometimes.
Next Thursday, I have my 4 weight loss visit. With only 2 more to go, I am not sure how I am going to start to act. I am starting to think more about my future, and the good this surgery will give me. I am looking forward to doing Disney with my baby in December, because I know that SHE will get so much more from me. I’ll be able to keep up with her. I’ll be able to do things that I know I can’t do now, with her. I know that this will pretty guarantee her a swift, high energy, smaller mommy that she do deserves, god willing!
I’ve been reading a lot about the hardships and expected changes. that comes with the weight loss surgery. The thing that is scary is the clumps of hair I’ve seen on people’s profile or story line; malnutrition; dehydration; healing time; and how I am going to feel afterwards. When I look at the totality of the posts, you realize there are fewer with bad issues than those that have had just an amazing experience. I don’t want to be part of that few. The senses that I get that you must drink your liquids, take your vitamins, and exercise. Apparently, I am going to have this swoosh of energy that will begin to materialize OVERNIGHT! Seriously? Sounds impossible huh?
For anyone that is thinking about the weight loss surgery, what isn’t always advertised is these secret weight loss groups online, once you’ve committed, where you really get into the heads of pre/post surgery patients. My group is hosted by my actually surgery center, with access to your doctors. That’s has been fantastic! I have found out that my initial opinion of weight loss surgery was from a very highly ignorant opinion! If you do the surgery, you will work for it. It’s not the easy way out, at all. You have got to be mentally prepared. I am getting there.
To be continued! 🙂
