Red face A very quick update post from Tammy

I'm home ladies. Thank you for all of the wonderful get well wishes from EVERYONE. I asked Jeff to post because I knew I'd be in for a while

So you know all of the gory details so I won't bore you. My levels came down to normal levels today and my pain is manageable so they sprung me. I'm going back for my surgery on tuesday. I'll find out the time on monday.

I'm on a clear fluids diet until surgery. I've gained like 7 lbs in water weight (about 30 bags of IV fluids later) but I'll know the real "damage" tomorrow. I can have diluted juice (for the first time in 10 months), clear broths, jello (yuck) and water. That's it. Bleck.

I feel like crap. I'll come back after some sleep and more fluids.

love you all
On my own personal journey I started on September 27, 2008
Starting weight 377, Weight in spring of 2010 198, Weight in August 2011? In the 240's.
Still plugging along on this weight loss highway!

Take care of yourself Tammy! I went through the same thing . . . two weeks in hospital on an IV and pumped full of drugs and antibiotics to reduce the infection and 'fix' the pancreatitis before surgery . . . you will feel SO much better post op. It was like a new lease on life with no gall bladder attacks. Hugs to you and wishing you a speedy recovery, x

Glad you're getting your surgery soon. I felt a lot better after my gallbladder removal, luckily I had surgery before any complications occured. Hope you feel a lot better soon!

I starting losing weight on January 13th, 2009. After losing 30 pounds, I gave up, and gained back all the weight I lost plus 20 pounds. Restarted March 29th, 2010.

I'm so glad the surgery is soon ---- you must be climbing the walls waiting! Get lots of rest between now and then, if that is at all possible. You are in all of our thoughts, Tammy.

Be well, Hotmana, be well !

Soon Tammy. It's almost over. This night mare is coming to a close soon and all of this will be behind you.

I wish you all the best before, during and after the surgery.
