I had a bit of a scare last night. About midnight, or a bit after, I started to get really strong pain in my stomach & started to feel cold & clammy. I thought I was going to be sick. I spent some time in the bathroom at the sink, running cold water over my wrists & splashing water onto my face. Thankfully, it subsided without my actually being sick. I hate it when that happens. Not the not throwing up, but the feeling that I am about to do so.
I have been very tired the last two days. Maybe that’s why I have been tired. Hopefully things will get better from here. On the final stretch now. Three more days of the liquid diet to go. I have my pre admission clinic at the hospital in the morning. Thankfully, the cough appears to have finally gone. Touch wood. I haven’t coughed at all today. The weight loss was another small one today. Just 200gms. But I am edging ever closer towards 10kg since I started. I know weigh 136.4kg, for a total loss of 9.3kg. Will see what happens tomorrow. I presume that I may be weighed tomorrow. Will be interesting toxomapre thatwithhow much the surgeon’s scales said ten days earlier. He wanted me to lose between 5-7kg. On my scales, I have done that & even more.
As the surgery gets closer, I can start thinking about what will be happening on the other side. Thinking about being able to exercise. Walking distances. Not sure when I will be given permission to start exercising. It might be a couple of weeks, or maybe longer. Not sure yet. Don’t want to get too far ahead of myself.
I realised today, that when I started this, I should have taken my measurements, so I could track how things were going even if the scales don’t move. I’ll do it tomorrow.
Again, not a lot of insights today. But at the start if this, I committed to report (even if no one else reads thsi) every day. So far, I have kept that committment. Report again tomorrow.
