Default I'm Home!!

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

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!

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.
