So basically, I’m a failure at blogging. I had planned to explain all about my pre-op appointment, the pre-op diet, my concerns before going into surgery, getting a bunch of pre-op pictures, surgery day, my time in the hospital, recovery, and the post-op diet. Yeahhh, I didn’t do any of that.
I’m a day short of three weeks since surgery. I do have some pictures to share with you and will post videos on YouTube, but not today. This post is mostly just to check in and prove that I am alive.
The surgery itself did go well, I have had some complications since, and right now I wouldn’t do this again. I know I will feel better about it later and end up thankful for the whole thing, but right now I’m just totally not a fan of weight loss surgery. I have lost weight and stuff, but can’t help but wonder why I didn’t try harder to just do this without surgery. I don’t think I really thought this through. I don’t think I tried hard enough before.
To those of you reading this and are in the process of getting surgery or considering it – please don’t let me discourage you. Just PLEASE get used to drinking the goddamn protein. My life would be tons easier if I could choke that crap down. I mean, there have been other complications, but that part has been the worst. I feel like I’m dying all the time because I’m so malnourished. I mean, more so than I should be.
Anyway, yes – I am alive. I’m at least 30 pounds down. I weigh myself on Mondays, so I’ll know later today how much progress has been made.
