2 weeks post op

Sign in to follow this  


Excited but a little exhausted at the same time!!! Had surgery on December 20th and the first week was smooth sailing. Wasnt until about 12 days post op did I realize I had not had a bowel movement. I was in an all out panic and my surgeon was too. He ended up having me take some Miralax and Colace and this morning had my firt BM since surgery.. Glad that's over with! Stepped on the scale last night and was 235.6lbs!! Not much of a loss like in the first week, but I'll take every single pound.


Starting Weight: 256

Day of Surgery: 247

Day Left Surgery: 258

1 Week Post Op: 241

2 Weeks Post Op: 235

total loss thus far: 21 pounds


Not bad. Won't complain. But I think in this week I will begin taking my vitamins (and boy there are a lot!) and doing some cardio at the gym. So blessed to have gone through this process with little to no complications and even more blessed that I am on my way to a healthy new me! Happy losing all!

Any pounds lost is a plus in my book. So, how are you feeling overall? Any pain or discomfort still?
