Fitness Tip of the Day

In all of the places?

Friday was surgery day and I was just expecting to go in and get out and back home with little drama. I arrived early so I could check in and calm my nerves which went well. As with all surgeries you have the Doctor come by the nurses and the anesthesia tech (also a Doctor) they were all asking me questions and telling me all will be fine. All that is normal but when the Doctor (anesthesia tech) came by he asked me a bunch of questions then noticed on my chart I had lost weight and that I am very active. I wish you all could have seen his face - it was priceless. As you all know when you are over weight most people judge you first before they even know your story and this happen to be one of those cases. He asked me what I did (gym, cardio, kick boxing etc....) and he said since I was so active he was putting me in a new category. WOW I have to say I was so happy (weird right) that I was not part of the obese category anymore (just on the line lol). He went on to say that since I was so active I really have helped myself out for this surgery and what ever the future holds. I have to say to impress a Doctor made me feel pretty good (also I had to go to the potty right when he got done and he offered to help me and a nurse came up and said I can help her sir and he said thanks and left when the nurse and I were in the bathroom she said he offered to help you? And I smiled and said yes surprise).

I am really sore today and all weekend was rough the anesthesia really took a toll on me I was in a lot of pain all weekend (laughing, coughing not so good) so I am hoping that the next few days will be better. Thanks for all the well wishes much appreciated!

Hope you all have a Happy Monday!

That is SO cool about the doctor! And yes, you have most definitely improved the quality of your life, health-wise, and it's only going to continue to get better! Be gentle with yourself as you continue to recover, but know that probably each day will be a little better, and you'll be feeling much better by the weekend! Hang in there! :D

Glad everything went well! When my husband had his gallbladder surgery last year, most of his pain was from the anesthesia, too.

That's pretty cool about the anesthesiologist!
