Hi Doodah .. Am back at hospital today for the pre op tests .. Day 8 of the milk diet .. I have stuck to it like glue and its been fine .. Have had some arguments with myself over food lol but that’s just my brain retraining I think … Starting to feel dizzy a bit tho but then I had an extremely busy weekend with my daughter and grandson.
Once I get through the pre op tests today I will finally accept I am actually going to have an operation lol it has taken so long to get to this stage and I still can’t fully believe it is finally happening lol I keep waiting for something to go wrong !!! Me being an optimist too !!!
Hope you are well

Aw bless you Mands. I know that feeling only too well. I think it’s because as a super-morbidly obese person, most things didn’t go well for me so i always kind of expected the worst possible outcome all the time. I’m very different now. In fact, when I got an infection with my last lot of plastics, no-one was more shocked than me! I’m having my wisdom tooth out next week and I honestly don’t foresee any problems with it. Then, on 21 Feb, I have my second and final phase of plastics and I’m determined not to get an infection this time round haha!

In my life now, I always see the bright side of things and try to see a positive whenever possible. I lost two very dear uncles last year and it was almost impossible to see any positive in that other than they were not suffering anymore.

Anyway, like you say, once all the pre-op stuff is done, you can ‘allow’ yourself to become excited about the new life that awaits you. It’s so absolutely fantastic that I honestly can’t find the words. It’s something you have to experience yourself. I will just look forward to hearing all about it ;-))
