I'm headed to my first post-op appointment here in about 90 minutes. Tomorrow marks three weeks since my surgery and I'm anxious to see what the doc thinks of my progress. I'm down almost 20 lbs. (hopefully 20 but I haven't weighed myself this morning yet) and my incisions are doing amazing. I'm hoping I get at least *some* exercise clearance because I'm just dying to get moving! I know once I can start getting active, the weight will come off quicker and easier.
BUT... I do have one problem I need to talk to him about. My lungs. Back in January I had a really nasty case of bronchitis that started to turn into pneumonia. I was one sick girl for a full week. Ever since then, except for a couple weeks before and after my surgery, my lungs were a mess. I've never wheezed a day in my life until this all happened. Now I wheeze constantly. I can't catch my breath if I do something as simple as climb a flight of stairs. My lungs burn and sting and ache all the time and I cough until I gag. And about five days ago I started having a productive cough. Yeah, no bueno. So hopefully I'll get some answers about this lung issue and get on with my life already!!
Wish me luck!!
