17 days until my 1st consultation.
I am going to my first support group meeting on Wednesday evening. It’s a great start and a great way for me to get accustomed to the specifics of the surgery through my health plan. I feel like I am waiting in line at Disneyland and it seems like it is taking FOOOOOREEEEEEVER. Before I know it I will be on the ride and it will be over faster than I know. I will look back and the wait won’t even be an issue.
I have started trying to incorporate post-op behaviors into my daily life. This way the transition won’t seem so severe. I have been using smaller plates and bowls, and making sure I am getting enough water in. When I remember, I try to eat my proteins first then the rest.
As much as I want to, I am holding off on buying any post-op supplies as I have heard over and over again that your tastes change. I don’t want to have a bunch of useless protein.
My posts feel sort of boring to me right now… they will get more exciting once I have a surgery date I hope J
