Well the wheels are in motion for me to get bariactric surgery. I gained back every pound i had lost after mom passed away. The way i see it there was nothing stopping me from reverting. With this surgery I can't revert, I will make myself sick if i do. It is what i need to keep myself focused! I have a few friends at work that have done this and they look amazing. I can do this! I have to!
Monday I go to my doctor for clearance from him, which i know i will cuz he recommended it. Also on Monday i have my first of 2 pysch evaluations and then a stress test and I get my date for surgery.
I know it's going to be hard and it's going to be alot of sacrifice. No pop ever, no red meats. No rice or pasta for awhile. I will be on multi vitamins and calcium for the rest of my life...but if it gets me off of insulin and all the other drugs, it's worth it! The hard part is getting enough protein in me so that i don't get sick. Gotta eat 60 to 80 grams a day...In fish, chicken, turkey yogurt. Later i can have some pork. But I guess there is some kind of protein shake that i can buy to help me get what i need. I will miss hamburger and steak!!!! But maybe with time i can have a little.
The surgery my doctor and the surgeon picked out for me and think will work the best for me is called the Sleeve.
Well i will let ya know how it goes.
