    Thanks muffin!

    Well done glad to hear all went well. The suppositories not too bad! I preferred them to the Fragmin injections. But going through all this will be worth it for a better life. Keep us posted.

    Congratulations Keith,

    It’s all been worth it, the milk diet may have been hell but 13kg pre op is fantastic. You have to forget about the voltarol suppositories thats just a minor thing, like the milk diet well I am unable to take any NSAID’s so missed that bit as well!

    Think of those letters you can now burn and all those times when you worried about what could happen, it’s past. Look forward to planning your future and don’t forget to eat and drink it’s easy to forget! Are you still on fluids or have you progrested to something sloppy yet? Everyone is worried before the op but when you wake up afterwards you can’t believe it.

    Well done and good luck.

    Happy-go-lucky

    Thanks all, sitting and waiting for purée porridge this am as first food after soups yesterday, then yoghurts and soups at home…. Only issue so far is dressings coming off, all other things good!

    Keith you haven’t said if your bypass was open or laprascopic? I had a laproscopic bypass the dressings were changed the day I left hospital 5 tiny neat scars, no problems having the dressings taken off, they were re-dressed and I was given more to take home to do. The only problem I couldn’t see properly to do them myself, didn’t trust my husband so I took the dressings to doctors surgery and a nurse did them for me although 6 days post op only 2 of the 5 scars needed re-dressing.

    I’m quiet used to pureed food now and can actually taste more than I did pre-op, I just don’t make eye contact with my husbands plate. The biggest problem is remembering to eat!

    All the best

    Claire, it was laparoscopic and have 5 scars, the dressings did not stick because my hair 🙂 will shave it myself if needs be.
    No issue really, given the thoroughly outstanding experience I have just had.
    At home, stockings on, injection given!

    Hi Keith

    How are you feeling now all that is over, no where near as bad as you contemplated! It is fear of the unknown we all suffer it and wonder why afterwards. So pleased your home and that your behaving yourself. It’s 2 weeks today I came home it seems absolutely ages. Now just have to remember to eat I seem to be going out too much and forget as well as remembering to keep well hydrated.

    It’s hard to think about home before your op it is almost alien.

    All the best for a healthy recovery and just watch that weight fall off..
