First Fill Today.

So I had my first fill today. I am 28 days post op. I was kinda freaked out about it. But it was pretty easy. (below is a video of how it is done) As of their scale in 3 weeks I have lost 7 pounds. 2.3 pounds a week. I dont know if it is because I am hungry today since I have not eaten, but I still dont feel different. I didnt feel full when I ate dinner. But it was the first thing I ate today. I dont know. I guess we'll see tomorrow.

Dern galbladder

I have had galbladder issues for several years. Ever since I had my surgery I have been having attacks. uhh. Saturday night I had one that lasted about 2 1/2 hours. It was the worse I have ever had. I was passing out at one point from the pain. Finally went to er and of couse it all stoppes right before the dr comes in. they just did some xrays and blood work and sent me home. I saw the surgeon today for my 1 week post op appt. he is happy with my weight loss to date. he wants me to get a hydascan to check my galbladder. (had one years ago and it hurts so bad.. uhhh dont want to do it) but then most likely he will remove it. On to week 5 of diet!

eating food.

The past few days I have been eating some real food again here and there. But im scared that once I start eating food, that my body is just going to start gaining weight back. Since surgery I have only been having about 200-300 calories a day because i am trying to do the food thing slowly and the clear liquid diet is giving me issues. Yesterday I had 568 calories. I had a 1/2 a hotdog with some mustard for lunch and in the evening at the party we were at. I had a tiny piece of pork chop, 1/2 tbsp of corn, 1/2 tbsp of mashed potatoes for dinner. (about 103 calories) i also had some chips and dip (about 115 cals) later on and 3 jello shots(about 156 cals). I weighted myself this morning (after only 4 hours of sleep) and I gained 3 pounds. Normally if I weight myself in the middle of the night I weigh more than I do in the morning, but this shows exactly what i fear. I gained and ate a little bit of food. I am supposed to be eating about 700-900 calories a day. Any ideas? ~ Happy New Year!

ok i re weighed myself several hours later and It showed I only gained 1 poiund since yesterday. so who knows.
