Hello Everyone!! I am new to the site, although I have to admit for about a week now I have been lurking in the shadows. I have found you guys to be extremely supportive of eachother and offer such great advice! I get on everyday to see what's new and decided I wanted to be part of it! I am just 3 weeks post-op and for the most part doing very well. The only food I haven't been able to tolerate was the sugar free pudding. The thing I notice the most is, well how emotional I have been the last couple of weeks. I felt extremely prepared and my process took almost a year. I felt good about my choice and the reasons for doing it....But yet I still find myself emotional. I don't regret the surgery, I think maybe I am just overwhelmed. And for my supporters who have never gone through any of this, it's very hard to explain to them. I am just looking for some warm words and support.
