Its been two weeks since I went 'under the knife' so to speak, and things are shaping up pretty well. The first couple of days were pretty rough...recovering from the anesthesia was particularly dicey. However, after lots of bed rest I eventually regained the ability to stand without hurling like a teenager after drinking Vodka for the first time.
It was a bit strange being on the receiving end of care and attention though. After three years it took a little bit of getting used too, and Ann admitted it was pretty strange for her too. I'm sure she will reflect on it here soon. Lucky for me, the love of my life took such great care of me and I'm pretty much back to 100%.
Two days ago I started eating solid food again and I have to say the lap-band works. There is a marked difference between the amount of food I could eat and feel 'full' before the surgery and after. If you step a little out of line and go for that extra bite, it really gets your attention quick. The experience is very Pavlovian...in a good way.
So after two weeks how much progress have I made? Starting weight 304 Lbs (9.44 Slg * 32.2 Ft/s^2), current weight 294 Lbs. Difference of 3.2%. Not too bad so far.
