One Year Out from Surgery!
Apr 24, 2010Hello folks, it has been a year since my surgery on April 14th, 2010. By that one year date, I was down 150 pounds. It seems this year has gone by really fast, maybe because I hit the big 40 in two months. I see on the board the big question is...do you regret having the surgery? My only regret is that I did not do it when I turned 30! I am glad the procedure is so streamlined now, but I know my thirties could have been so much more productive.
So about my progress. I am doing very well in both mine and my doctor's opinion. I just had my one year with the surgeon and nut on Thursday, and all of my numbers were spot-on. I am so happy about this, as I often forget to take all the vitamins I need sometimes. A few days before the one year surgaversary, I had lost 150 pounds.....yea me! My doctor took me off my last blood pressure medication, which resulted in an eight pound gain in one week :( It is now coming off as my body adjusts. I would so LOVE to be under two hundred on my birthday in June.
My hernia is getting worse, and the Doc is sending me to see a plastics guy now. We really wanted to wait until I had lost more weight, but he is not sure I can wait any longer. I asked if they could give me rock hard abs, lol. My arms are a sagging mess, and well as the breasts, but I am still healthier in this state. I have become a clothes whore, and I love new outfits that I can FINALLY wear.
Any particular questions.....just ask! :)
