Hi everyone!! I was banded this morning at 7:30 am. I came out of my anesthesia at 8:45, took my first sips at 9, started walking by 10:20ish, and discharged at 11 am. It's been a painful day around the port. I slept most of the evening but managed to walk every time I woke up. Hence why it's 11:45pm and I'm wide awake. I took some of the liquid medicine but it was too strong for me. I wanna try to endure the pain and avoid the drugs. If it gets too painful, I'll give in.
It's amazing how this works. I don't feel hungry, just thirsty. A sip each 5 minutes isn't enough!! Lol..but it'll have to do. I will add a few pictures tomorrow.
I still don't know how I want to keep track of my progress. Any ideas? I had thought a few shots every month would work. Do you think I should take them with the same clothes? Tight? Favorite top? Help!!
Thanks again for all the support. Those that knew of the surgery have been very supportive and caring. Can't wait to go back to work and feel useful again.
