I am trying to become the best me I can and shed the weight that's protected me forever. I'm a single mother to a beautiful son. I was banded on 9/8/10 and my band is named Sasha...Ms. Fierce if you nasty!
I just came from my followup with the surgeon and all is well...HOWEVER..he does want me to get a second opinion on the tumor issue with an oncologist (that word just scares me). But I have faith that all news will continue to be positive. The somewhat bummer is that I have to go back to my surgeon a month from today for a checkup before he will schedule my surgery. I was so psyched to get the surgery and having done the pre-op diet this is a total letdown. I know he is doing the right thing and making sure that my stomach is completely healed so I don't have trouble later, but it doesn't stop me from wanting it done already. I am going to try and at least maintain the weight loss I have already achieved and hopefully lose some more before my followup and maybe the pre-op diet will be even easier the second time around....NOT! Well I will get to enjoy 4th of July we are supposed to be going to Jacksonville to see a good friend who will be home on leave from his contractors job in Iraq, yeah you read right he took a job driving 18 wheelers in Iraq, the money is good but who does that? I love him to death though and am anxious to see him.
