Band Appointment

I saw my surgeon today.
I thought I had not lost a pound since November, as it turns out I have lost 11!

I really need to keep track of my dates better. It was a nice ego booster to know that even though my weight loss has slowed it has not stopped.

He reassured me that the pain I have been having on and off is not really anything to worry about. I don't have any symptoms that he is worried about. He did tell me to try some zantac or prilosec for a couple of weeks to see if it gets better. He thinks I just might have some irritation of the stomach lining along with my poop issues. This is the first time going in that I did not get a fill. He offered but I don't think I am anywhere needing one.

That being said I think I will get a second opinion once I get to California about my pain. My surgeon has never really instilled to much confidence in me. The only reason I went with him was because my insurance gave me 2 options and the other one is an hour and a half drive north. That was just not going to work with work. I am looking forward to a better doc in the future.

I hope you all have had a good week. This post is very one topic today. I have to go take a shower and go to bed because some how I can't seem to get there before ten at night in the last couple weeks. I'm draggin! Amen for coffee (i know I am back on the coffee wagon, ugg!)

Love you guys....till next time :)


  1. Yay for 11 lbs. Let us know what doc #2 says. Always a good idea to get a second opinion. :)

  2. 11 pounds is amazing. I am curious to see what another doctor says.
