I had my final baryium test, to determine whether I still had any leaks in my stomach. As I mentioned in my previous post when they removed the stents they thought they had detected a leak. So.. there are no leaks.. I am NORMAL!!!

Couple of things I have discovered:

1. I can eat bread, whole grain in small quantities.

2. I can eat pasta.

3. I cant eat potato in anything but miniscule quantities.

4. I still sneeze when I cough.

5. Its great sleeping in a bed rather than a recliner.

I havent lost any more weight for a couple of weeks, I am guessing its because I am able to eat more food, and I have been exercising, so some of the muscle I lost in hospital is being replaced.

I thought I would put my new measurements up for interests sake:
