So last night I made a delish vege soup for dinner.... did I get to eat any of it? Well yes, but then it all came back up again... and again.. and 5 times later I thought stuff this, and I didn't eat any more. Soup peoples! I was vomiting on SOUP! I was extremely sore in my chest during the night and it was even difficult to get water down. So today I rang up my gorgeous surgeon and got an emergency appointment with him to get some fill taken out. He said that by the sounds of it I'd set up an inflammatory process that had proceeded to make the stomach around the band extremely swollen. He took 3.5mL out (which is alot for a bandster!) and as soon as I had my first sip of water, I felt nothing.... that is... INSTANT RELIEF!!! I'm on opti-yuk/fluids for a couple of days to settle my stomach. For lunch I had cup a soup... and it went down a treat, in 15-20 mins. I've had some diet lemonade and a cup of coffee and some water and I feel sooooooooo much better already.
Now the challenge is, how am I going to cope with having less restriction!?!?!
Oh yeah, I also weighed myself at the doctors surgery.... and I was 83.6kg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TOTALLY STOKED! It almost made the fact that I couldn't eat anything worth it!!! *lol* Just kidding!!
Really want to count that weigh in, but I think I'll stick to my own scales which read 84.1kg this morning (which is still pretty excellent!).
Now the challenge really begins! I'm going to up the exercise and keep a close eye on what I am eating... but at least I know I can eat again!!!
