They have finally set my surgery date for Jan. 28, 2008. I thought it would be sooner but when going thru testing I found out that I had 2 VERY LARGE gall stones so I had to have my gall bladder taken out. Becuase my immune system is already compromised because of Lupus my surgeon wouldn't take out my gall bladder and do the bypass at the same time because he said it would be too difficult for me to recuperate from the bypass. I now have to wait 90 days (insurance reasons) and will now be going thru the holidays. I hope I don't put on tons of extra weight over Thanksgiving and Christmas. Any suggestions??? I feel like I could have the "Last Supper syndrome" for the next 2 months!!! HELP!! Also, any recommendations as to what I can start stacking up on for post-op necessities. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
