Well, today I have my appointment with my surgeon to follow up. I told him about the tenderness and soreness I'm having on my left side, he confirmed, it's from the port, and is mostly normal and most likely pretty bruised. He then took a look and yes I could have told him I am all bruised up over there. He said it should go away in a couple of weeks. Pretty simple visit - he looked over the incisions, asked me a few questions and was on his way. I have my first fill appointment set for March 21st. They may or may not actually do a fill, but I'm on the calendar at least. We'll determine that day if I'm ready or not. If so, they'll send me down to radiology and take care of the first fill there to make sure they can easily find the port. On the bright side of this visit, they of course had me step on TANITA, their scale. My prior visit was on 1/24 the day I started my pre-op diet and they showed me at 246.5 lbs, with a BMI of 44.4 and a Fat % of 49.1%. Drum roll please, today - just 9 days after surgery I'm at 226.5 lbs, with a BMI of 40.8 and a Fat % of 48.4!!! Yay!! 20 lbs gone and it's NOT coming back!! :) I like this, cause it's pretty equal to my home scale. My home scale, I was 242 on 1/24 and this morning was 222, so still 20 lbs. I like my home scale better! ;)
Had some yummy refried beans for lunch. Delicious!!
