So of course I am in this time of healing, I have been resting, taking small walks, trying to eat a little here and there, but I also have been surfing the net endlessly. Now that I am "on the other side" I am craving all kinds of knowledge, not that I didn't before, but now I really feel banded. It's weird..lol. So anyway, I came across this website yesterday and was reading through forums, I believe it was lapbandtalk.com and somehow I started reading about blood clots. I think I was just cruising through possible complications, and my tummy has been hurting (mostly because the pain meds make me feel horrible so I don't like to take them) so I started reading this...jeez. So then I'm up in the mirror, looking at my incision
sites. One of them looks a little red around the edges. Great, so now I have blood clots and my port incision is infected! Now this is really not the case, I am just being paranoid. *raises eyebrows* Told you.
I did get my protein supplements and vitamins in. This morning, I am sipping a shake with my vitamins in it, and since the liquid is berry flavored it is tasteless. Note to self, do not put the vitamins in Cream of Wheat. Bad..bad. ew.
This is the complete multivitamin, I also put the description here just to share.

I am back down to my pre-surgery weight. I noticed I hadn't posted any numbers yet on here. I guess sometimes I still feel embarrassed, even tho I'm amongst friends here. I know everyone kept telling me to not worry about the scale so much this week, so thats what I've been trying to do. I was able to do a little Wii fit yesterday, I'm just trying not to push it. May I just say, my Dr. did warn me about more gas, bloating..omg, talk about pain! My left shoulder has been so sore. It really got bad yesterday after I had a few bites of cottage cheese. So I don't think that agrees with me. :(
