  1. Well this has been an interesting experience to say the least, 3 weeks post op, still trying to get use to the whole feel of eating and "fullness" feeling. Kinda hard not to take normal bites if food ! But figuring it out!
  2. Getting on an airplane.... No regrets ... Right?

    It was a different experience than what I am used to in the US. I am glad it is over and I know you will do well. He does thousands of these surgeries and I am confident he knows what he is doing. If you can brush up on your Spanish I would do that too. There are people who do not speak any English so communication was tough. I am feeling better each day. I am excited for you. It is a real life changing event and a lot of work but I am hopeful the rewards will out weigh the struggles. Let me know how you do.

    Still haven't told anyone, I had my Gallbladder removed and thats all they think. For dinner I have been preparing crockpot type things. I just consume the juice or broth, while my family eats the meat that was cooked along with a side item. They all know I want to clean up my eating so they assume the change is just a diet. I went back to work today. Had soup from subway for lunch. No one even noticed.

    I went solo. I met some of the most vibrant people there. We all shared the same struggles. we all had the same fears, hopes and dreams. You will do great!!! he is a great surgeon. Bring your own pain meds if you have them. But if you have a high tolerance you will do just fine with out any.
    The broth is awesome, especially after the surgery!
  8. So I've got surgery date set for August 9!!!!! So excited!
