I'm a week out from surgery and feeling pretty good. The surgeon said he took close to a pound off each side. Which is a little crazy when you think about it. I'm sore and I've had bouts of nausea, light-headedness, dizzy spells but for the most part I've been surprised by how easy recovery has been. I go back to the see the surgeon today to get the dressing and bandaging off. I'm excited to see the results. I was so pleased with the outpatient care center where I had the surgery. I had to stay over night and I was the only patient that night. The nurses were so sweet and took great care of me (and Patrick). I was sick from the anesthesia but that was really the only bad thing. I expected to be in a lot more pain. I was expecting to feel pain more like after my csections and it wasn't that bad at all. I've felt so lazy because I pretty much rested and laid around until Sunday. The kids came back home Sunday so we've been trying to get back to a somewhat normal day. Yesterday was the Thanksgiving Feast at Barrett's school. It was the first day I've put on real clothes. I was so tired when we got home. It's going to take some time to get back to normal, I'm going to try not to rush it but it's hard. I did weigh in today and I'm pleased with the number.
-1.8lbs this week. I'm guessing that's pretty much all surgically removed. Ha!
Moving right along. So close to my end goal! I've been so relaxed lately with my diet and I need to get back on track and buckle down to get these last 17lbs off.
