2012 - I had Vertical Sleeve Gastric Surgery in October 2012, and this is my journey to push the fat girl aside and start living life without fear of lawn chairs, the middle seat, clothing shops and high heels. Among other things.

2017 - I'm preop for the Duodenal Switch procedure for my sleeve to help me get to goal weight....and to fix another hiatal hernia.

Weekend Work

Lots to report on in my WLS learning scale.

Friday night was the anniversary and we went out for the most Canadian (me) and American (hubby) food that we could find.  Poutine and fried pig ears.  In retrospect, that's silly and ....even though these were both just appy's, it was TOO much grease.  Plus I had a little bit of beer. 

I suffered for it as well. I had something like a stuck episode that night, bloating, vomiting, pain and gas.... I'm starting to think it might be gallstones.  (Another f**king thing to add to the list of getting older. Arg. ).

Anyway, that night I wandered around suffering, took some gasex and finally puking until I felt better.  Fun anniversary.

The next morning I got up, ate 3 spoonfuls of greek yogurt and promptly felt exactly the same. 


That was it.  Husband went out and get me some mint tea and I spent the rest of the day laying on the sofa and reconsidering my eating habits.  Either its gallstones or its inflamed stomach from there days of abuse.

I'm thinking its more the abuse.  I had tea, soft peaches, and soup.  Sunday I took it easy as well.  Smaller portions and gentle foods and this week is going to be more of the same.

Ensure for breakfast, lots more slow eating and better chewing. More water, more care, more thought.

Three days of bent over the toilette was enough I guess!! 


  1. I hope you're feeling better! :D

  2. Oh my gosh that sounds horrible. I had gallstones for years before they were identified, and one of the most clear symptoms is pain in your upper abdomen on the right side, and also pain in your back. I didn't usually have nausea or bloating, just the horrible pain attacks that would come & go.

    Whatever it is, I hope your stomach has calmed down by now.
