Dealing With Surgery after WLS

My weight is holding steady.  I don’t actually know what I weigh right now, since my immobilizer is still on and I can’t get a sufficient weight.  I know I haven’t gained weight, and I don’t think I’ve lost, but I don’t know how much I actually weigh.

The worst thing is not being able to move around to sufficiently rid myself of gas.  Gas post WLS sucks.  It hurts.  A lot.  And the only way to get rid of it is to walk it off.  Can’t walk if off if you can’t walk.

Exercise is nil.  I can’t.   Using my crutches does burn some calories, and it is a great ab workout (who would have thought?).  But my arms get sore, and I can’t go too far or do too much.  My knee gets sore when I move around too much, and I’m not able to put weight on it at all.  Sigh.  Without exercise, I stall out.  STALL OUT.

I’m thinking of maybe going back to weight watchers (with an altered program for WLS) after I get out of the immobilizer so I can lost the last 30 or so pounds I need to.  Never has my goal been so cloase but SOOOOOO far off.  Sigh. 

Dealing with surgery after WLS is no fun.  No fun at all.
