I havent been very good the last little while as I found it a hopeless task to write about losing weight when I wasn’t. So after 3 years with a lap band that has failed to work for me, I decided to go thru further surgery.. So it began in October 1013, I contacted a surgeon in Qld to see if I could have a band to bypass operation. I had a skype consult and all was good. Then we had to see if our super fund would release the cash to pay for it. So we did all the paper work and waited. 3 weeks later we were cashed up and I started to pay for all the necessary things. I was given june as my surgery date, but someone cancelled and I got March 3rd. So off I went to Brisbane and on Monday 3rd March I had my bypass done. Surgeon said it was tricky because of the damage done from the band, but I have been staying with a good friend in west Qld 4 hrs from Brisbane for last 5 days, to recover properly before flying home. The first day after the 4 hr drive here I took some pain meds the doc gave me and I thought I was going to die!!! I was so dizzy and sweaty, and it didnt matter whether I stood, sat or layed down I felt like I was falling off a cliff. I was horible. “what have I done to myself”was all I could think. Happily tho, I came good later that day when the meds wore off. Since then its been good. I have lost 2 kg’s and although I am worn out quickly I feel as tho I am over the worst. I have an appointment with the surgeon on Wednesday afternnon back in brisbane, then hopefuly home to Tasmania on Thursday. This is my last resort, so will keep updating every week with my progress. Have a great day peeps.
