6 Week Post-op Appointment

I saw my surgeon this past Friday for my 6 week check. Everything looked really good, he was very happy with my progress and the nutritionist was thrilled with my eating logs and feels I am doing really well.

Here's the seriously exciting part....

He thinks I will hit goal in 3-4 months! He told me previously that once I hit goal and was stable with all my labs and such he would clear me to TTC again! Holy crap! How cool is THAT! He said to expect a year or so, but because of all the weight I lost BEFORE the surgery I am way ahead of schedule. I have only 30-40 pounds to be at goal and that is SOO crazy to me!

AND, he said he wants me to get in to see my OB and possibly get a referral to an endocrinologist (not the fertility kind, a regular endocrinologist) to see where we go from here as far as my PCOS is concerned. We need to figure out what to do to test and see what the status of my PCOS is and if I should go off the metformin or not. I will have an appt with my OB/GYN in a couple weeks (ASAP) and hopefully get the ball rolling. I can only hope and pray that the PCOS is gone as well. I would LOVE to not take any meds other than my vitamins- hehehe

sorry, but this is all really good news as far as I am concerned

OH- and I have officially lost 80lbs as of today! Whoopee!!


  1. Wishing you best of luck! After being down the TTC road for the past 3 years I know that you still have an uphill battle in front of you! It still feels good to be moving forward!

  2. Hooray! That's so great Robin! It's a great reward for all of your hard work.
