Congrats, just let your body heal from the surgery and don't worry about losing weight for a few weeks (my surgeon said 6 weeks).

Good luck.

Is it practical to look at another weight loss surgery such as the gastric sleeve. I would think you would be a good candidate for one of these. Don't take no for an answer and keep pursuing all options. Good luck to both you and your husband.
