My Surgery Has Been Canceled


So this is going to be the hardest post I have ever written and I am writing this to you with tears streaming out of my eyes. So Wednesday should of been my surgery date, but this morning I got a call from Chris the Nurse in my surgeon’s office saying the surgery was canceled. To say I was devastated was an understatement. But I promised you from the beginning of this blog that I would upfront and honest brutally at times. So I feel obligated to share with you everything.

Last week when I was going my pre-op testing there was a concern when they did my respiratory testing they made me do it two times without the aid of medication and the third time with albuterol to open my airways. Unfortunately adding the abuterol did not help open my airways and did not improve my respiratory tests. So I headed over to the hospital to meet with the anesthesiologist and he said he was really concerned because the low respiratory numbers to him showed I have a pulmonary disease. He told me he would meet with the pulmonary Doctor on Thursday and if everything was ok I would be called and approved for surgery. So Thursday they called and said start your liquid diet you are approved.

Fast forward to today, and I am in the car just got done with my water aerobics and Chris the Nurse calls me and says they are canceling my Doctor’s appointment that day and that I would need to see a Cardiologist and also a Pulmonary Doctor before I would approved for surgery. So upon further probing to find out what the issue was she told me I had a very enlarged heart which is one of the things my Mom died from a few years ago. On top of that I have fluids in my lungs and combine that with my poor respiratory numbers we need to get that checked out and cleared. So my day could not of gotten any worse. I am in a state of shock at this present moment and my emotions are swinging back and forth from being mad at myself for damaging my body to just crying out of sadness.

The thing that is effecting me so much at this present moment is that I did this to myself by smoking and eating unhealthy and I might be to late to make a difference So I apologize now if my blog post are few and far between for a few weeks or if I am absent on Facebook or Twitter. The real world has called and unfortunately I have to learn to deal with medical stuff. But I promise you from the bottom of my heart,I am a FIGHTER I will not give up no matter what. I will lose this weight on my own if I have to, I like the new ME and nothing and No one is going to take that away from me. Just will mean that I will have to fight a little harder, but that is OK!

  2. I am really sorry to hear that, but try to turn this into a positive. Sure your surgery was cancelled, but having to wait a little longer is worth it, especially when you consider that had no-one known about this problem and the surgery went ahead you may have ended up with major complications. You are a strong and determined woman and I know you will beat this challenge. Onwards and upwards.

  3. So sorry to hear that. I had to wait a year to get surgery because of Pulmonary issues. I hope everything turns out the way you want it.
