2 Week Post-op Follow Up

on 8/18/14 6:31 am

Just had to share - I had my first follow up appointment following my 8/5 RNY.  I'm down 21lbs (from their scale, I'm down 26lbs according to mine!) and my blood pressure was 127/83!!! It hasn't been that low in YEARS (and I'm on meds for it!) YAY!!!! I also got moved to stage four foods - anything I can puree with my teeth. LOL.  

I'm so excited I can't stand it - it will be nice to give up the shakes for a bit (or at least cut down on them) and if I don't see yogurt for awhile, I'll be okay.  I went grocery shopping after I left the doctors and may have went a little crazy - it's hard to remember that I'm no longer feeding my old stomach but my new one. Thankfully, I had Eggface's blog up while I was in the store so I could grab stuff for her recipes. I'm most excited to the ricotta bake right now. 

Thanks for reading my little victory!

Congratulations you two!  I'm headed in for revision surgery on the 25th.  Can't wait.  Pre-op diet is difficult but to be on the other side safely - all worth it!

Best of luck to you! Hang in there with the pre-op diet!! It's tough, but as you said, so worth it when you're on the other side!!
