THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR THOUGHTSA ND PRAYERS--THEY ARE SO GREATLY APPRECIATED.
THE SURGERY WENT WEKK--THERE WERE ALOT OF ADHESIONS ON MY INTESTINES THAT TOOK A LONG WHILE TO CLEAN UP BEFORE THE SURGEON COULD DO MY ACTUAL GASTRECTOMY--SO I WAS ON THE OPERATING TABLE FOR ABOUT 5 HOURS--BUT I CAME OUT OF THE ANESTHESIA WELL AND THE FIRST 2 DAYS AFTER WERE REALLY HARD ON ME--BUT ONCE I STARTED TO PROGRESS I MOVED ON FAST.. HAVE ALOT OF PAIN AND THE DRAIN IS STILL IN AND THAT IS IRRITATING.. I GO ON WED 12/14 FOR A CHECKUP AND TO HOPEFULLY GET THE DRAIN OUT--PROBABLY HAVE TO WAIT A MONTH TO GET THE STAPLES OUT-- MY INCISION IS ABOUT 10 INCHES LONG A8D IT IS GLUED AND STAPLED--NOT SURE HOW MANY STAPLES EITHER --SEEMS LIKE A ALOT--THEN THE JERRY STRIPS ON TOP..I HAVE SMALL BURSTS OF ENERGY AND I CAN WALK AROUND AND DO A FEW THINGS--BUT IT IS SUCH A TASK TO EMPTY THE DRAIN AND MEASURE IT AND RECORD IT AND CUT OR CRUSH MY PILLS-ETC.. MY HUBBY HELPS ME THANK GOD--BUT TOMORROW I WILL BE ON MY OWN AS HE GOES BACK TO WORK..BUT I WILL BE OK.. I AM GETTING ALOT OF SLEEP WHICH HELPS ALOT.. I AM GLAD THE SURGERY IS OVER AND I AM TAKING THINGS ONE DAY AT TIME IN MY HEALING PROCESS.. THIS IS MY TH SURGERY THAT I HAVE HAD ON MY ABDOMEN IN THE PAST 11 YRS AND EVERYTIME THEY OPENED ME I HAD ALOT OF ADHESIONS THAT HAD TO CLEAN UP BEFORE THE SURGERY.. OOOOH I PRAY I DO NOT NEED ANY MORE SURGERY!!!!!! AGAIN THANKS AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL..AND I HOPE THAT U ALL MEET YOUR WEIGHT LOSS GOALS..
MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!! SUSIE SMITH FROM NEPA
