How much weight did you have off at 4 months?

by Tamara01 on 02-06-2013 at 06:20 PM
Yes, I know each person is different and we all lose at different speeds, I am just curious. I am at 4 months, and with the pre-op diet, I have lost 78 pounds. I just feel that isn't a lot, since only 45 of that is post surgery. I know it is still good and it is a loss, but I feel like I am losing very slow I am just curious what you have lost.

I had my surgery on Friday, everything went fine. Except my blood pressure went a little low during surgery and my kidney numbers jumped. They think the kidney numbers are high because of the blood pressure issue. But, I still had to stay an extra night in the hospital and got pumped full of fluids. I am going to see a kidney specialist just to be safe.

My biggest problem is after 3 1/2 days of being pumped full of liquids via IV, I gained 17pounds. How frustrating. I know
