I had my first post surgery appointment today. My respiration, blood pressure and heart rate were all great. They also removed my surgical tape and checked my incisions.
I also drank a barium drink so they could check my band. I was able to watch the liquid filter through my band, which was cool. Everything checked out ok and I was given a list of reminders. This week I am on pureed foods. Next week I move to mechanical soft foods.
Time is flying by. I have lost 15 pounds since my first visit to the center on January 21st. I weighed in at 344 today. January 7th, at my doctors office in Manhattan, I weighed 381.
