Huston we have a blockage....

Well here's to a first... blegh! this is what i get for rushing through lunch however in my defense my boss was riding my ass to hurry up... GRRR well I spent about 20 minutes in the bathroom regurgitating my lunch which I must admit was probably not edible worthy I am day 6 semi solids which has been great so far. I bought some cheap chinese rice and chicken didn't have time to go get a decent lunch well boy did I pay for it.. the rice was dry and over cooked so was the chicken stringy and hard recipe for a block really! wasn't chewing properly and eating far too fast... LESSON LEARNT! felt like a foot rammed down my throat... really uncomfortable kind of awkward feeling just relief to have it OUT! now back to mushies for 24 hrs... One of my work mates thought I was pregnant.. she's like if you and bub aren't feeling well you can go home... bless her heart LOL!

First day back at work

Oh so it's my first day back at work and I was perky and bright this morning come 1pm I am dead dozing off on my computer I believe it might be because my sleeping pattern is all wacked out from being on pain medication for about a week straight then on and off during the last week No more pain yay! which is so good, I woke up this morning there was no odd feelings or strange sensations in my tummy I will say this I do have some slight incision pain my largest incision above the port gets a lil ouchie but then again I am a baby when it comes to the slightest of pains... give me the drugs any day please! Well it's home time now I managed to survive my first day back... 10% to my goal this morning feeling like a million bucks.. bye bye fat ass.. and hello sexy ladeh.. *does the gangnam style*

banded and so far so good

So here I am 6 days post op. Let's go back to the beginning 5th of March checking in at Saint George Private Hospital 6:00am in the morning I was nervous, scared for someone who is a major control freak I was at my breaking point once we checked in I waited in the lobby a nurse came out and ushered us to another part of the hospital she told me I was lucky number 1! Great I was nervous anxious during the short wait and the 21 questions from every nurse I got dressed into my gown and measured for the pressure socks at this point I was waiting with my fiancé for about 20minutes 8 began getting emotional crying because I was happy, excited and scared a lot of 'what ifs' were rushing through my mind I remember telling my fiancé how much I loved him and finally once we said our final prayers and kissed each other one last time I was wheeled off into the waiting bay - there I met with my anaesthesiologist and given a mild cocktail sedative to calm my nerves and BOY did it calm me I felt like I'd drank half a bottle of vodka I may have said some pretty silly things.... Then boom the last thing I remember was the bright halo light above me then I was awake not in pain but disgruntled I had oxygen tubes up my nose I was on an IV drip I was being told I need to wake up I kept saying all I wanted to see was my fiancé to know that I wasn't in limbo but that I was out safe needless to say I became fairly nasty I was swearing and very angry.... The nurse may have had to arrange some sedatives for me after the warm fuzzy feeling came back I was out I remember opening my eyes and being wheeled to my room I caught a glance of my fiancé and I knew finally I was alright. At this point I was told it was 10am I spent most of the day sleeping and on oxygen I was pretty drugged out- unlike my room mate who was talking and fine...I suppose the drugs affect everyone differently I recieved pain medication quite regularly and I fuzzily remember saying my pain was about an 8 no shoulder pain just abdomen pain I felt tight like I'd been stabbed Finally I woke up at 4pm feeling so much better I ripped the oxygen tubes off and buzzed for the nurse went to the bathroom got changed feeling a lot better still sore but at least I was alert, in the bathroom I looked and the incision sights 5 in total no bigger then my pinky fingers in length I did get emotional I actually did it! The night went on pretty casually For dinner I took a few sips of the soup which was pretty good but after a while I was not having it, had some jello yea didn't like that much either OMG the apple juice was heaven that I don't know but apple juice it was perfect enough it was cool and crisp my mouth tasted arid I slept through the night and woke up only once for some more pain medication next day I was discharged, I've spent most of the past couple days recovering the pain has gotten better mostly gas pain I've noticed my incisions have been itchy but I just rub them gently I'm on paradime forte and it knocks me out pretty well ive been having some fluids - liquid meals and soups but not my 3 a day like I was told less maybe 1 mostly I've been drinking Gatorade to keep hydrated and Luke warm water ahhh heaven I had some peppermint tea to help with gas it did a bit but not much I've been rubbing efficasent oil to relieve gas an old Filipino remedy it's been working perfectly I rub and push downwards and am usually relieved after - been walking a bit but I get dizzy when I do. so far I am pleased no hunger cravings if anything the idea of 'eating' grosses me out and freaks me out... Well we shall see. On wards and upwards

Shakes, Pills and veggies Oh My!

Well Hello! Welcome to day one optislim! Woke up this morning feeling like I had dejavu, Optislim... just a horrible tasting version of Tony Fergerson, I feel I bit apprehensive like I'm once again going down the dreaded path of Yo-Yo dieting, bring on the extra ballooning KGs.. makes me nervous. To top it all off Optislim tastes so artificial makes my teeth chalk! gross to top it all off I've been burping and tooting all day ahh.. TMI TMI!! Typing this up munching on my 'allowable' carrot sticks, at this point I kind of feel like a rabbit. Let's truck on soldier For someone who isn't used to having their first meal of the day till 1ish in the afternoon sometimes even 5pm at night! yes I am bad I've been notorious for starving my self.. years of insecurity at highschool not being able to eat in front of friends just a force of habit so trying to down a 250ml Optislim shake.. I really struggled. I think I can, I think I can! I will and can do this! two weeks till the band! the countdown is on! mind of matter and all that motivational jibber jabber. - Boop, Out. Starting - 163kgs
