3 months post-op....Already?

Has it really been almost 3 months since my revision?  Time flies!

Today I have my 3 month nutrition follow up.  The nutrition appointments have felt kind of pointless to me in the past, maybe because I've been doing this for so long and everyone else in the classes have been new, but now that everyone is 3 months out, maybe I'll be able to get more out of it.

Wednesday I have an ultrasound scheduled to check out my gallbladder to see if that's what's been causing my pain.  I'll update you all.

Next week I will have the follow-up with my surgeon's PA.  I am curious what she'll have to say.  I don't know if I'm where they expected me to be.  I'm definitely not as far along in the weight loss as I expected.  But I happily don't have all of my lap band problems, so that's great.
-No more stuck episodes.
-No more PB episodes.  (Do you all remember that time I PB'd down my shirt to hide it from a date?!)
-No more fear of food.
-No more fear of just drinking WATER!
-No more painful port.

I do have acid reflux, but I manage it pretty well.

In other news, can you all believe that BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD is now trying to deny paying for my surgery?  Truthfully, as difficult as the approval process was, I'm not shocked or surprised, but I'm just disappointed.  I will never by choice have them as an insurance company again.  They are horrible!


  1. UGH! I hate insurance companies. Unfortunately that is my insurance company as well so I'm not looking forward to the fight I'm going to have getting them to approve the band removal and revision. I'm debating a revision at all...seems like none of them offer the results they promise.
