  1. Surgery Sunday, Nov 3, 2013. PreSurgery weight 104 kg/228.8 lbs. Found post surgery to be uncomfortable due to gas in stomach cavity area, but didn't feel in real pain and took no pain meds. Today is 10 days post surgery. Weight 95.6 kg/210.32 lbs. Loss so far 8.4 kg/18.48 lbs. Feel great. I have been showering since surgery per nurse's direction. Today 2 bandages fell off and I was told not to reapply. Feel great and wish I could swim and start weight lifting. Have been walking about 7500 steps a day- only due to time restraint and I find walking boring even with an mp3. Yesterday 9 days after surgery, feeling good I went back to work as a combat shooting and counter terror instructor on the range. Limiting the work yesterday to rangework with movement but not the martial arts part- felt fine, thank G-d. My surgery was performed at Shaarei Tzedek hospital where I received excellent care and by Dr Rami Shapira who did fine work. My only complaint is that it took so long. I began trying to get the surgery sometime in 2012. Happy to share my findings with others of my path and need help from others who are furthergone than I. Thanks. We are a special bunch. May we be successful and healthy thanks to the path we've taken. Blessings from the Holy Land.
