Welcome to my blog :)



I'm back and I'm banded!

So I made it through!  Yay!  I've been home since yesterday afternoon but I didn't feel like getting on the computer.

I am one that, unfortunately, is blessed to suffer with gas pains.  Ouch.  The first day I didn't have much and I thought I was gonna sail right through.  Then yesterday they started.  And it hurt.  A lot.  So far I haven't had too much since about 6am this morning but I can still feel it bubbling around in me.  Weird.  :p

Surgery itself wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, by far.  I was so worked up and scared that morning.  You always hear such horror stories about people waking up in the middle of surgery or feeling everything but are paralyzed... things like that.  But thank God nothing like that happened to me.  :D

So I'm still a little sore... okay, a lot sore.  But I'm trying to do everything I know I should.  Lots of water.  Lots of walking.  And lots of rest.  The rest part is where I'm failing on but I'll try and work on that tomorrow.  I wanna enjoy my time off work.  :D

When drinking my liquids, I don't know if I've ever felt full yet.  Since I've been suffering with gas pains from my gut to my mid-back, to my lower shoulders, I still don't know what that new fullness feels like... which is kind of a bummer but I'll get there.  

All right, enough of my rambling.  I'll be back to write when I'm a little less gassy.  :p

Gas-ex is your friend, trust me sister! I had it terrible for six days. It does pass (forgive the unintended joke) and you have an incredibly positive outlook and are really motivated. Its so good to hear you did well and are bubbly (sorry for the bad pun).
