I hit onederland today. :thumbup1:

 

I went to my doctors apt yesterday to do a follow up on the clots. Last time I was in they also did an array of blood work to see if I had any other issues (like clotting problems) etc. I'm not really sure how to take the results. The doctor said several areas showed borderline issues, but yet she couldn't really say there is a problem because they are borderline. Not sure what that's suppose to mean!! In the past they had run blood work and said that I had some elevated SED levels that could indicate issues, but they still haven't a clue. I've often wondered if I have Lupus or Fibro as I've had so many issues with joint pain etc. Hopefully all will resolve itself. Back to the blood clots...they are still there. :crying: She was a bit surprised and thought they would have disolved by now. She was also concerned as that arm has a spotty look to it, almost like leopard spots. They are faint and just red around the edges of the spots. I'm scheduled for another Ultra sound at the hospital this week. She wants to compare the ultra sound from 7 weeks ago to see if there is any change. If not, we will need to take a different approach as the aspirin doesn't seem to be having much effect.

 

It's so discouraging because One, it's painful and two I want to start lifting weights and building up some muscles and I can't until the clots are gone. I have been doing 4 miles 3 to 4 times a week. Either bike riding or walking fast paced. So I'll continue doing that until I get clearance from the doc to do strength training.

 

Things overall are going well. I'm getting so accustomed to my sleeve it's almost second nature anymore. It's easy to forget you have one, and take a gulp of something and then spit it out because "oh yeah you can't do that"!!! lol

 

I have had no real food issues. I've been very slow to introduce new things and have tried my very best to avoid bad choices. For the most part I've done really well. Food just doesn't have the same appeal to me anymore. It's not the main focus anymore. How blessed am I? I did try popeyes chicken nuggets as I used to love those preop. Nah....didn't care for them at all. I ate two and tossed them. I won't be trying those again. :sad0:

 

Wishing everyone a fantastic week!

:biggrin0:

Thank you so much DeeDee. Once those are cleared up I'll be feeling like a million dollars. I've only lost 36 lbs and I can't tell you in words how much better I am already feeling. My joints, my temperment, every area. Hope you are doing ok as well, Have you been able to Maintain your weight?

Yep, my goal is to try to maintain between 140-148. When I hit 140, I upped my carbs (not really the best way) and have been maintaining between 143-144 pounds.

Thanks so much Rob. Not to many more days you'll be here in Colorado. This week the weather has been in the 60's. I hope it's just as nice when you get here.
