This is just a quick update to let you all know where I am health-wise 1 year after Lap Band.
Wednesday I went to see my PCP for something completely un-related to my band or really general health. She could not say enough good things about my weight loss.
In addition to being 100+ pounds down, my blood pressure was 100/76.
There were times I was afraid of being diagnosed with hypertension at age 23.
PCP asked me how my blood tests look after a year, and it occurred to me that I have not had ANY blood work since prior to surgery. We mutually decided it might be a good idea to check some things.
I am happy to report that her nurse called me yesterday and told me 'everything' was normal. I don't know what 'everything' consists of other than A1C (sugar), cholesterol, and Iron.
I love knowing that not only am I better on the outside, but the inside too!
