6 weeks post op
I'm doing fine at 15 mg. in the AM. I feel good on it. I got past the pukey feeling days, and now feel pretty good! I just finished the antibiotic, and I still have some sinus infection. I have an appt. with the ENT, but that won't be until the 15th. They couldn't get me in sooner. Turns out my doc retired, and I get a new one there. He's not new, just new to me.
I'm still seeing changes in the right direction. I can't remember if I posted it last time, but I've lost 5 lbs. now, and around 20 inches. My watch was snug when I bought it right before surgery. It is my medical alert watch. I could barely get it clasped. Now it slops everywhere. I have a picture to show how loose it is now. I also have a picture of my nice nails! They haven't been this long for ages!
I'm also posting some pics of the morning of surgery, and now, in the same dress. You can see that my sleeves were stretched to the hilt before, and now they are loose. You can also see that my stomach is much smaller than it was. It's still a long road to go, but I am seeing improvements! Yay! Even though it will take a long time to get back to normal, it still seems amazing that things can change so fast after surgery! I'm loving every minute of it!
