All right folks, now you have me freaked out. The last few discussions have all been about problems people have had. This is such a tough decision for me. I know that I need to have this surgery to become a healthier me. I don't seem to be able to lose the weight any other way, yet I am so worried about post-op. How will my body react to food, will I be vomiting all the time, (I say I have vomit phobia because there is nothing I hate more in this than to vomit) will I be tired all the time, and on and on goes the list. With my family schedule (always running someone somewhere) and my families lack of help around here I'm worried about how my household will run if it takes me a long time to recover. I had surgery about 4 years back to repair a torn tendon on my arm and could not use that arm for 10 days Then had limited use after that and my house went from being spotless to being an absolute mess. At that time my kidlets were 5, 8, 9, and 10. Old enough to do some things but not the harder tasks. My husband wasn't much help either. They were all good for about four days and then they seemed to forget that mom needed to take it easy. That has become my biggest fear. I am kind of a control freak, (no not kind of, I am,) and like to think I can do anything and have to do everything. You notice my picture, that is "Super Mom" in case you were wondering. I guess I need to not worry about everybody else and worry about myself. If I don't take this time to do for myself I know I might not be around as long as I would like to. But again there's that old fear, whose going to do it if I can't. Always has been a problem for me.
