Basic Information

About clepak
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
Was a single parent that raised 2 daughters. Working a more than full time job I really didn't have time to pay attention to nutrition although I have never been a big fan of fast food joints. Typically my lunches were sub sandwiches or sandwiches from home.. Dinners were usually late night just before bed. I think working 20+ years at 60 to 70 hours a week and the stress of being a single parent finally wore me down. Lately it seems all my bodies internal systems seem to be breaking down. So this is what I have chosen to get my life back under control. Especially now that the kids are grown and out of the house now. I've been in the automotive industry in one way or another ever since I discharged from the military at the age of 20

As of today it has been 2 weeks since my surgery. The pain is almost 100% gone now. I tend to get more heartburn again, haven't had that in over 10 years. I have not had any episodes where what I have been eating has come back up. But I have been getting what I believe are hunger pains. It seems the more I heal the stronger they become. I was under the understanding the hunger would be gone after surgery. The first follow up with my surgeon is in 2 days so I guess I have a couple questions for him.

Ready for the Journey

I am 9 days out from my Gastric Sleeve surgery, had my final "pre-op class" yesterday. It has been a tough road to this point. 2 days ago I had a series of radiology tests and today I had a Colonoscopy. 2 years ago I had been diagnosed with Fatty Live Disease, last year the surgeon who performed hernia surgery on me said it was one of the worst he has seen that was not yet failing. Today I was told it has grown even further as well as my spleen has doubled in size and now I am in a middle
