I had my first visit with Dr. Woodman since I had my surgery on Aug. 21st. I have lost another 2.5 lbs since last week when I had to see his nurse due to one of my incision bleeding. He did a fill but it was too tight so he had to remove some of the fluid. I now know what it means to be too tight. I couldn't even get water down. Thank goodness I didn't go home and the discover the problem.
17 down 150 to go

I had to make an emergency trip to see Dr. Woodman. I woke up on Wednesday Morning with on of my incision bleeding. I was concern because I had my surgery over a month ago. It seems that I popped a stich and it broke one of incision open. At least it wasn't infected. I go back to Dr. Woodman on Thursday, 10-04 to have my first fill. I am looking forward to it. I need some restricition. Since Aug. 21st I have lost a total of 17 lbs. WAY TO GO!!!

After giving the doctor's office all the documentation to send to the insurance company, I was approved within a month. I went from my first pre-op testing in the middle of Nov. and had the last on the second week in Dec. I thought I would have trouble with getting approval but I have to admit I was surprised at how quickly it went thru. It took me approx. 18 months to comlete the requested diet, dr. approval etc before I submitted the paperwork for approval. I am just happy that now the ball has started to roll.
