I had my post-op follow-up with the doctor today. He took a look at my incisions and asked how I was doing. Everything is going GREAT! I am down thirty pounds already… Wow, amazing what all liquids can do for you. After meeting with the doctor the dietician came in for my week two thru [...]

gastric weight loss…
I’m Back… Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days. My awesome nurse/wife wouldn’t let me near any of my computers. Let me start by saying – I feel great! Yes, I had surgery four days ago and I feel great. I am home resting; taking my pain meds as needed and sipping on various [...]
Wow – what a nice room, and the bed was actually really comfortable! I had a lovely private room with basic hotel amenities. The nurses were very attentive and friendly. The hourly blood-pressure and temperature checks weren’t too annoying. Everything went good-and the drugs were great. Why didn’t anyone tell me about the heparin shots [...]
I walked into the hospital two hours prior to surgery at six in the morning. Since I had popped a Xanax an hour earlier I wasn’t feeling very nervous. I went to registration and then to the blood-lab for typing. After three painful pokes the not so lovely Phlebotomist finally got some blood. Not a [...]
Well tomorrow is the big day. I will be having my lap-band procedure at eight o’clock in the morning. I’m really not that nervous. I have my overnight bag packed and I think I am ready to go. Lord; please keep me in your arms. Guide the surgeons’ hands, and grace me with a speedy [...]
I went for my pre-op visit with the doctor today. I can’t believe how close I am… I am so excited. Before I met anyone I had to weigh-in. Damn, I have lost 25 pounds (OptiFast Day 12) !!! Damn, I didn’t think it was that much. That was a nice treat. I guess this [...]
Wow- what a difference a few days can make. I’m actually not starving and the drinks are becoming palatable. I gave up the bars… Just can’t even swallow them any more. Really, I’m not lying- they aren’t that bad. Okay they suck! But I can do this. Positive note- I have lost over 20 pounds [...]
Oh my God… I’m thinking about eating my hand! I’m frickin starving. I can’t do this awful stuff any more. I need some real food. If I eat one more of these OptiFast bars I am going to puke. That’s it- no more bars, I’m going all liquids. Why am I craving a salad?
I have been wondering how the upper GI would go since I found out I had to do it. I’m not the best when it comes to swallowing weird or nasty drinks. I only did a quick Google lookup to find out what the test involved. I didn’t want to know too much. I knew [...]
Yummmm… NOT… It’s OptiFast time. Two weeks of this shit! Are you kidding me? Please God give me the strength; this is going to be rough.
