Heading Into Surgery

I’m going in for surgery this morning, and the procedure should last about an hour. It still doesn’t feel real, but it’ll be over in a few hours.

If all goes well, as I assume it will, I should be home tomorrow or the next day. (I’m hoping for tomorrow,) and I’ll begin the recovery process at home. Based on what I’ve learned from the doctors and people I know personally the recovery isn’t too bad. Most people I know didn’t even take pain pills, which is awesome. (Don’t worry, I’ll take them if I need them, but I’m hopeful that it won’t be too terrible.)

Right now I feel as though I can do anything. I’m down 20 pounds, and successfully completing two weeks of only liquids prior to surgery makes me feel like a rock star. I’m ready, and I know that God is going to carry me through this part too. It’s almost time.

Let’s do this…

    Hi Kenlie,

    Good luck with your surgery I am pretty sure you will get over soon, and God will help you through the surgery and during the recovery period.

    Wishing you the best in your surgery

    Best of luck to you! I’m a 7 year post-op from gastric bypass, which was converted to gastric sleeve this past May. I’ve had some rare complications and subsequent planned and emergency surgeries, but I still don’t regret the decision to have WLS, and yes, I would do it all over again.

    Anyway, don’t let me jinx you. GOOD LUCK!!!
