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:
…………..Pre-surgery => post surgery = Loss to Date (cm’s)
Neck: 51 => 46 = 5cm
Wrist: 20.5 => 18.5 = 2cm
Bicep: 45.5 => 40 = 5.5cm
Stomach: 153 => 133 = 20cm
Chest: 153 => 135 = 18cm
Starting Weight: 205KG
Current Weight: 137KG
