Two Weeks Post Op -- 252lbs
Jan 28, 2010Hey OH Fam ... I have completed my two week post op term, and alot has gone on this week. I returned back to work this past Monday, so far ... so good. I began my workout sessions last night at LA Fitness and will meet with a personal trainer on Friday evening. I visited my surgeon's office today for my 2 week post op eval, and it went very well -- my BMI is below 50% (whoo hoo) I am definately moving in the right direction. I was so pleased when I got on their scale and it showed how my last visit on December 17, 2009 I weighed 278.5 and today I was at 252.1. I truly thank Dr. Duncan and Dr. Jean-Pierre for handling my surgery -- so far I LOVE MY RNY!!! To date I have not suffered any pain or complications, only the soreness in my stomach muscles for about 4 days -- but I guess that tenderness comes with the surgery.
For anyone that is contemplating the surgery -- do not let anyone stand in your way, or try to frighten you. Having a better life is more than any of us can ask for. I am even down almost two pant sizes, I will post some pictures by the weekend.
I also found out today that I can upgrade to Pureed Foods, so I can now add blended meats, veggies and mashed potatoes to my meals. Also I can drink my protein shakes again (for breakfast and lunch), and I can add a scrambled egg to my menu too. You would think that I would be ready to jump on the meal wagon and begin enjoying food again, but actually I am going to take it slow, try one added food at a time to make sure that my system will allow it.
So take care everybody and talk with you soon!
