6 week follow up post op---what happens during

5 posts in this topic

this appt? Does the Dr. request more labs and go over your current daily menu?

 

I am a slow loser ...I have lost more inches than pounds...I was wearing a 3x shirt and 24w pants and now.... I can wear size 18 pants and 1x shirts ....but the scale is not showing drastic pounds being lost....

 

Inches lost is still a wonderful thing too...I am happy with that....

 

and my follow up appt is Aug 14th.....

 

I have Kaiser insurance and so far everything has been pretty good.

With my surgical follow-ups, they look at the scars, ask questions and assuming all is AOK, you're outa there. 5 minutes, tops...

Yup me too, in to the office, looked at my scars, weighed me, asked if all was well, then out the door - painless!

 

As for the inches rather than scale movement, I am always in awe of how the sleeve works. I have been stalled for 4 weeks in terms of my weight. Although I am being patient, I have upped my Protein and fluids to give my body a bit of a kick. scales haven't moved but yesterday I tried on a top I bought a month ago that was too small when I bought it but I loved it (I looked as if I had been stuffed in it, lol) and knew I would fit it eventually. Well "eventually" came yesterday - the scales read the same but I have gone down almost a whole size in the last month and I look great in the top, with room to spare!!!!

 

So inches or llbs, it's all working for me - hope it keeps working for you, the scales will move but inches matter just as much :-))))

Yes, I agree.....It's stll hard to see the differences in my body even though the scale doesnt show too much change...my family and friends tell me I look great...my waist is getting smaller..cool huh!

They made a comment on how I have freakishly narrow hips. (Gee thanks. Now I feel like I'm a whale built like Gru. Whale comment refers to one if my threads on the rant & race board)

They asked how I was doing. Asked about food and Water. Told me good job and sent me on my way.

Oh and they solicited me for the panel at one of their seminars.
