    Hope all is well, prayers for a great surgery and recovery! Welcome to your journey!
  4. Wow, well done! Sorry, one kid is sick and the other teething so I'm up to my eyeballs! You made it! Glad you're doing well and I've no doubt being home makes a world of difference. I've heard having warm water helps it go down better but who knows, it's all such an adjustment.

    I'm booked in for April 29th. Could've been earlier but I booked it for the school holidays so that my husband can look after the kids and do any driving (he's a teacher). Lost a couple of kgs already just from stopping the daily chocolate and cutting down on carbs a bit but going through a bit of a "food funeral" as the yanks call it. Did you get anything like that? I start my pre-op diet on 15th April and plan to make a serious effort from 1 April onwards. Think I've got too much time on my hands!

    Hope the storm's not battering you guys too badly :-)

    So I had my op on the 12th march. It all went well and recovery wasn't too bad. Had pain in back and shoulders from the gas pumped into your stomach during op. Lots of walking around hospital and burping fixed it after a couple of days. Came home today and glad to be back to comforts of home. �� I'm 4 days out and doing well. Fluids fluids and more fluids! Mission to get it all in but can only do the best I can. Just taking each days as it comes. Not looking too far ahead. Head hunger is there but I know its just a habit that will subside.
    Anyways when is your surgery date?
