So let me fill you in on how myself and Phylis (lap band) have been. My end of pregnancy weight was 293lbs...YIKES!! Well I am now at 271lbs So far 22lbs lost post par tum and a total of 80lbs lost from my highest weight of 350. I work out 6 days a week for at least a half hour and I am counting calories again.
Yesterday I had my first official band appt since April 2012. I had seen the band doctor here during my pregnancy after the move but they would only do an unfil until they could get in there and take a look at her after I had my baby.
Let me introduce you all to Phylis:
Phylis might look like she is being a good girl...but she is not. I had my first look at her in 2 1/2years. Before and during the beginning of my pregnancy she was working great and I hit my 100lb mark and life was great. Yesterday I found out that due to the fact that everything compressed during the pregnancy she has slipped her mark. So now I am playing a waiting game. I am waiting for more in depth records from my old surgeon to make it to my new surgeon so we can discuss the next step. Right now he left what fluid I have in my band where it is and I am just crossing my fingers that the further out from my pregnancy I get the more things will shift back into place on there own and I wont have to go through surgery of any kind. If I do have to go under the knife Phylis will be removed and repair of any possible holes from placement fixed and I will be given an option to pursue a different type of bariatric surgery if desired. That's all I have for now.
I have been reading up on people here and there but have not left comments due to not having the time. I love reading all the support that goes around out there! keep it up my lovelies!
