3 weeks after the surgery


Finally I had my second Gastric Bypass, or as they call it the Revision Surgery, whatever it is called it has been helping me to loose weight again, so far and since June 24th the surgery date, I've lost 12.4 lbs, pretty good ah?

It hasn't been easy, maybe even a little harder than the first time because my brain was used to big meals again and to all that yummy food, and to go from that to clear liquids again, it's been a pain, but this time I'll do it.

I stayed in the hospital for two nights, one more than the first time, the doctors wanted to be sure that there wasn't any liking from the stomach which could cause a mayor problem, he said it is dangerous because they staple on top of the staples, but I didn't have any problems, I was ready to go home the first night.

I have been weighting myself every day, sometimes the numbers go down, sometimes they don't and I know that I shouldn't be doing that because when I don't see it moving I get frustrated and I get anxiety and my day is harder, but you know how we women are, I love to see when it goes down a pound or two in a day.

I will try to post more often, stay tuned.

Thanks for reading, and if you are, please leave a comment, I would love to hear from you, also if you have questions or you are planning to have your surgery soon, I would love to hear from you.

My dear friend, I am aware of all you've been through and you shouldn't had, but wellll,.... I'm sure this time it will work!!!! You know that due to my work with plastic surgeons for years, I have witnessed hundreds of cases of ladies having that surgery done, and then some reconstructive, to get rid of the remaining skin. So I tell you that of course it is possible to become a size 5, after being wearing a 28 for years!!!!
You'll do great, because you want and deserve to look and feel better. But most important is having the right attitude. Enjoy every bite, go outside, bike, walk and live. BE happy during the whole process, and you'll get used to BEING happy all the time!!!

Pitty Dear

Thank you so much for your support, I wouldn't have done the revision surgery if it wasn't for you, you game me a great advice when you said to push the doctor to make it do it. I thank you and love you for that.

May God bless you!

Love you!
