They asked me how much Protein, Fluid, and exercise I was getting. Most of my incisions were glued, but I did have staples out of one site. They took my vitals, asked if I had any trouble pooping, and just kind of went through the things that people probably most commonly have trouble with post-op. They also helped me with what I needed out of my post-op Vitamin regimen so I could get all that stuff while I was there. I was expecting bloodwork, but they didn't run anything. They asked if I had any questions, said everything looked good and that was about it. I hope your appointment goes great!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
