6 Month Surgiversary
Sep 16, 2010I hit my 6 months yesterday 9/16 and I feel great. I started at 267 and am down to 190, from a size 20/22 to a size 14 haven't been this size in years. I never regret doing this only wish I had done it sooner. My knees don't hurt anymore, my back is feeling great - have arthritis in both knees and my back. I can walk up stairs without losing my breath and my heart not pounding in my chest. I feel like a totally different person, still have problems getting all my fluids and protein in daily but I am working on it.
Unfortunately, I did receive a bit of bad news the other day my breast cancer has returned and is now in my left breast. I had breast cancer in my right breast and was in remission for 4 years. But, my head is still on straight and I know I just have to do what I need to do. I will have to discuss this with my wls surgeon and find out if I need to change my eating habits.
But all in all it's been great and I love my sleeve!!!
