Today I saw my surgeon for my six month update. I had blood taken last week so that they could test my vitamin/protein levels in my system to make sure that I am receiving the proper nutrients.
Everything looked good. I still weigh 196. My total weight loss to date is 102 pounds. He cleared me to kick up the exercise. I am going to join a gym, do yoga, and I have been meditating. The surgeon then wants to see me in three months. In between, I will have my annual physical with my primary care doctor.
So far, health-wise, I’m doing pretty good. I know I feel great, so much better than I did before. Just the fact that I can walk as much as I like and not struggle to breathe or stand is a miracle to me.
