    Default 6 Months/26 Weeks Postop VSG

    Okay, so first off....I don't know how to calculate. Do we go by months, i.e. I had surgery on 5/7 so today is 11/7 so that means I'm 6 Months postop? But if I count by weeks, i.e. it's been 26 weeks (and 2 days). Either way....I have lost EIGHTY-FOUR pounds since my surgery on 5/7/18.

    Wowza!

    I have an appointment next week on 11/13 for my 6-month check up with my surgeon. His goal, last time I saw him, was for me to be under 200 pounds. Check!


    I am feeling FANTASTIC....down a total of 120 pounds from my highest weight! I have gone off medications for pre-diabetes and have just dosed down again on my blood pressure meds as I've been running too low. The health I have gained in these last 6 months has been great. With a poor family history of diabetes and heart disease, I know I have lengthened my life in taking the step to have surgery. This is very important to me as my father, whom I love & miss dearly, died too young from obesity-related illness.


    Just wanted to share my excitement at another milestone. Thanks to you all for your encouragement along the way.
