I had my band removed on Monday. My surgeon said there was so much scar tissue and a pretty serious slip, he would have never been able to reband me even if that was the plan. I am much much more sore than I was with my original surgery. I came home yesterday and spent a lot of the day sleeping. The drugs are keeping me sane at this point.
I was not put on any post op diet and this has been the best part. I ate chicken and rice last night and fruit salad. It was amazing. I forgot what it was like to eat real healthy food without wondering when I would puke.
I go back to my surgeon a week from Friday to get started on the plan for part 2: The Sleeve. He thinks it shouldn't be too hard to get it approved after seeing what a mess my band left. Here's hoping. The crappy part is that I will have to have another surgery and another recovery and take more time off of work. Hopefully this will be my last weight loss surgery!
Happy July 4th all!! I am feeling some serious independence today... from the satan's trap that was living inside me. :)
