So, I went to the doctor yesterday for my 3 month check up. I entered the surgery knowing full well I hadn't lost anything since my last visit, waiting for the scales to acknowledge my shame...
Well, actually, I had lost a whole KG! Wow. The doctor wasn't upset (as I thought he would be) and made the comment that he was happy I wasn't putting weight on, and had in fact lost a kg. Hey, I'll take that KG thanks. According to his scales I am 90.8kg. Mine say 89kg, so I think I like them better! Whatever the case, at least it is a loss.
However, he was concerned because I had presented with almost constant reflux, which he said meant the band was too tight, and why didn't I go see him earlier? See, I just figured my hernia had returned! Anyway, he loosened the band a fraction and I have to go for a barium meal x-ray on Friday morning (oh joy), and back to see him on Tuesday next week to figure our next course of action. Hopefully I don't need further surgery to correct any problems.
Otherwise, it is back to the grindstone, started walking again yesterday but the weather is changeable this week so I may not be able to do much. We walk really fast when Walking Buddy and I go out, and after about 5 weeks of not walking (well, we did walk lots in New Zealand, so 2 weeks I guess...) I felt every one of those steps. The old hip joints didn't like the workout, and nor did the leg muscles. Geez, I hate being 40!
