Went to the Docs today for my check up after Surgery. Everything is looking good and I don't have to go back until November for my 6 month checkup from the Bypass Surgery.

Weight loss is good and blood levels are looking good. Vit D still really low but that's nothing new.

So not much to report for once. It was a good visit.

To date I have lost 168 pounds

5 Days Out

It's been 5 days since my Gall Bladder removal. I have to say this surgery was like a walk in the park compared to other surgeries I have had.

Other than being a bit tired and feeling a bit of pinching/burning at the puncture sites, it hasn't been too terribly bad.

I went out shopping yesterday to Target and felt ok ... I was tired when I got home but I did it.

My Doctor said the surgery went great. He did mention that I had built up all the scar tissue he cut out last surgery .. so he cut it all out again lol ... I do like to heal quickly.

Other than that he said things went smooth as silk and I only spent 2 hours in recovery and about one more hour just walking around and getting my feet back under me and then getting discharged.

I tried to lay on my side Saturday night ... that was a mistake .. owie! But, last night I was able to lay on my side fine.

Lets just hope this is it for a while..... the only thing I have left hanging over my head is having to have the thyroid biopsies redone ... but I am holding off on that for a little bit.

BTW speaking of that ... I saw one of the other Doctors I had seen a while back and he walked right by me didn't even recognize me until I said hello to him then he did a double take ... I've lost so much weight and with the short hair ... no one recognizes me anymore lol

Here is a pic I took of myself yesterday before going to Target .... who is this person with the skinny neck? Cause it sure isn't me lol!

Red Kittie Kat

I notice I am wearing a lot more Pink now too. I never used to wear pink. I always thought people would associate it with Pink Elephants ... Now I just wear it because I love the color. I don't even think about that anymore. It is amazing what the brain will retain and let go of when you start feeling better about yourself.

I still have a long way to go ... but as of today I am 172 pounds down and I am feeling stronger and have more stamina every single day.
