- HEALTH TRACKER
Just this past week (Monday night) I went to the ER for pain in my abdomin and ended up having surgery (Tuesday early morning). Apparently scar tissue from radiation treatment I had eight years ago for cancer had wrapped itself around my intestines and was causing a blockage and they had to go in laparoscopically and clean the adhesions out. I was in soooo much pain before and now feel 100% better. I couldn't eat before and was vomiting. I wasn't sure what was going on but I knew something wasn't right. Fortunately my WLS surgeon was able to do this surgery too so I knew I was in good hands. I am feeling soooo good now I can't believe. It must have been building for a while because I hadn't been feeling well for a couple of weeks but could never pinpont why.
That's all that's been going on with me. Holding steady at 108 lbs lost...seem to have stopped losing once I hit the one year mark. I hope to lose another 25 lbs but am giving myself a year to do it. My surgeon told me that I had probably lost all that I would lose due to my bypass and that if I wanted to lose anymore that it would have to be through my own efforts. So, wish me luck on that last 25 lbs. I am wearing a some size 10s now (depends on the cut/brand name), which is nice. Hanging onto those 12s for now though.
Love to all and have a happy Easter!
