    3 of the 4 drains were removed today and I feel awesome! I love not having the excess skin and my smaller boobs!

    After having PS w/4 drains, I have something to add to this list that I wish I had when I did my VSG...buy a PT resistance band (similar to these http://www.amazon.com/Aylio-Exercise...E3YK267K2XZRVJ) to pin your JP drain to while showering. WOW! It was awesome not to have to deal with the drains or worry about them while showering.

    Skin removal is 2 weeks away. . . waiting for this surgery has been worse than the sleeve! I think that I am more nervous this time too.

    Bought my Halloween costume for this year. Typically, they run small but this year I order what I thought was "my" normal size. It turns out that it was too big! I needed to order a size smaller than I thought. One day, my mind and my body will be on the same page.

    Medical leave was approved by HR! I am so excited! That was the largest hurdle to get over, pre-op. Now, I don't have to worry about how I am going to get take off work for 2 weeks.

    I am now completely off all NEXIUM! I drink a glass of cold water every morning w/1 drop YL Lemon essential oil in it. No nexium since February! It's awesome!!

    You left out the best part of recovery... the in room massage! That really helped me work out some of those gas bubbles.
