I had my 4 week post op appointment this morning. It went well and I've been cleared for takeoff! No more restrictions. I've lost 43lbs since my highest weight. My pouch has tolerated everything I have eaten so far. All meats, dairy, fish, cooked veggies and even small amounts of pita bread or english muffin with peanut butter. I was given the go ahead to try soft raw veggies and fruits and if those are tolerated I can move on to crunchy veggies. I'm so looking forward to a small bit of salad in the next few weeks.
The best news of all is that my BLOOD PRESSURE WAS NORMAL!!!!! I no longer have to take my blood pressure medication. My surgeon took me off of them right after surgery and I'm thankful.
