Doctor visit today

I saw Dr. M today for my first post-op follow up.  My official weight on his scale was 323.  That’s a 27 lb loss since my last appointment on 2/20.  He was very happy with my weight loss so far.  He checked my incisions and said that everything looks great.  I can have puree/baby food consistency foods, then in about 7-10 days I can start soft foods.  I go back in 3 weeks on April 2.  He said at that time we will discuss a fill, but I might not need one right away because the band was tight when he put it in and I already have some restriction.  It will depend on my continued weight loss and how much food I am able to eat at that point.

 My mom took me to the doctor and she hadn’t seen me since surgery.  She said that she can tell I’ve lost weight.  I went back to work and my co-worker said the same.  That, plus the scale, makes this whole thing worthwhile.
