so glad you are feeling better and can do things, that's so great. hope you get the surgery you need.
Yes, he did see some gall stones in my gall bladder, if its easily gotten to he intends to remove it. He didn't mention the appendix at all.This sounds mostly pretty good. My thoughts:
May 22 will be here any minute!
- 24 DSs would not be enough for me, but if it's enough for you, go for it (I would have more options, financially - and I understand that's likely not possible for you.)
- He may say he does "all revisions" but I wouldn't let him touch me for an RNY to DS revision with a 10 foot pole. That is pure arrogance to think he could do one after only 24 DSs.
- I would fight him for a 100 cm common channel. I'm dead serious about that. Ask Keshishian about his opinion on that one.
- Does he take out the appendix and gall bladder too? I sure hope so.
Nah, it's not your bowels they are concerned with...it's about ridding the surface of your liver of the excess fatty slime that makes it all slippery and large and hard to maneuver. They have to move it or lift it or whatever they do to work in the area they need to work on.That's actually my question newanatomy? Is there a real reason to do a full liquid diet before the surgery...does it really need to be 2 full weeks? In my mind they need me to do this in order to clear my bowels before the surgery...but if my bowels only take roughly 53-57 hours to completely evacuate why do they ask you to do a 2 full weeks on 3 protein shakes a day and clear liquids pre surgery? I ask this because on my other diet I have been consistently losing between 4-5 pounds a week, and I was satisfied, if they absolutely need me to do this I will do this, I'm simply questioning why, and of course complaining because "I'M HUNGRY"
