Hey everyone,
Just wanted to let you all know, I had my Gastric Bypass Op on Staturday and I came home yesterday afternoon.
I'm doing ok and no longer on Painkillers, so I must be getting better,
Its weird cos I haven't felt hungry at all and I am finding it hard to get all my liquids down. But the nurse called me today and said, just drink as much as i can and not to rush it. so Here I am on my way over to the losers bench hopefully soon.
Thankyou to everyone who sent me well wishes!! XXX:hug:

and the nurse is right - be sure to drink up! one sip at a time. and you won't be hungry for quite awhile!!!

rest up!!! YAY!!!!!!!

hope you heal well, good luck

which hospital did you use? i had surgery with the hospital group last year (breast augmentation) and i know they specialise in weight loss surgery.

anyway hope you feel better from a fellow englishwoman!

Hey Thanks Girls.
Paula, I had my Op at The Alexandra Hospital in Manchester and My surgeon was Mr.Ammori, He is really nice and I had no problems at all.
Thanks for wishing me well, I really can't wait to start and lose the weight now!! X

Glad it went well & that you’re on the mend.

As the others said, "Sip, sip, sip." Oh, and, "Walk, walk, walk."

Hurray!!!! Glad to hear you're home and doing well, honey! :hug:

Manchester eh? My best friend and her husband are from Birmingham...not walking distance but closer then I am! LOL

sip slowly and all day long...I kept a frozen water bottle next to me and sipped it as it melted that way you can measure how much you've had.
