First post surgery visit

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.
