3 weeks and 1 day till surgery
So quite a bit has happened since my last post.
Last Friday (19/9/14) I had an appt with the dietitian and the exercise physiologist.
The exercise physiologist just took my history of exercise and injuries ie: arthritis in knees, bad back cant stand longer than 10 mins if that and jelly legs when standing. She said this will get better the more weight I lose and wants me to start walking on the treadmill me for 5 mins a day
I have yet to do this but hopefully I can try this week.
The dietitian was very helpful. i told him how sick the shakes make me and he was helpful and worried that i was dehydrated.
So he put me on a meal based diet to try and shrink my liver and lose weight but the fact that I could come off the shakes and eat real food sent me on a binge….not a bad binge but a couple of days of KFC and pizza.,.. my weight went up and it took a good 4 days to get back on track
So yesterday I decided I only have 3 weeks till the op and 1 week till see surgeon and he wants me to lose between 10-15kg I had only lost about 7.5kg and so I decided to have 3 shakes a day as sick as they make me.
Well to my surprise overnight I dropped 2.8kg and that makes my total to 10kg
I have one week exactly till I see surgeon and I am hoping I make the 15kg mark and he will allow the op to go ahead
I am hoping by only having shakes 3 times a day and nothing else but water and the odd cup of tea that I will be able to shrink my liver enough.,
I am so nervous but am leaving it in Gods hands
I still really crave and miss my KFC and pizza and garlic bread..,..,,. I pray I can do this.
The dietitian is due to call me today so I will tell him what I have done.
I wish the 10kg was noticeable….even in my face but it isnt guess its going to take a while
the numb feeling I get in my feet I have in the tops of my fingers I pray this will pass with weight loss.
Seeing the surgeon (Dr Durmush) next Friday so if I dont update before then I will update after I see him….
Hope you are all well
