Keping you updated on my first appointment with the bariatric nurse who will be in charge of my aftercare for 3 years.
I got to the clinic, it is situated on a very nice street. The receptionnist directed me to the waiting area. A nice room with big sofas, plants, relaxing music, a big flat screen describing all the services this clinic can offer. I felt really at ease I soon as I got in that room. I have a fear of medical places. But in this one there was no funny smell, It reminded me of the waiting room of a very fancy psychiatrist that you see in some movies.
The Nurse, Wendy opened the door and out came a lady with a big smile on her face, she gave Wendy a hug and said hello to me. I came in the room, there was the equipment to do an ultrasound, a nice comfortable armchair. I filled in some papers, did a few tests and the I met a Band. for some reason I thought it was not that flexible. I felt like I was holding a new friend in my hand. my surgeon uses 3 types of bands and will decide which one to give me during the operation.
Because I am getting married in July, Wendy explained they had a program you could follow for a quicker weight loss so I can be down quite a bit of weight before the wedding, I decided I would go for that it is basically low fat no carbs high protein. After this I will move on to eatig small quantities of all kind of healthy food.
Wendy asked if I was planning to have children, she said my chances to get pregnant will increase as I lose weight. I explained how much I wanted to have children. Not just yet but I wouldnt like to wat too long. Have any of you been pregnant with the band?
Wendy explained that if I was to get pregnant in the next 3 years my pregnancy would be followed by her as welland it was included in the price of my package.
I am extremely pleased with the whole team following me I wasnt expecting for everything to go that well to be honnest. I am so pleased. I hope the team in Belgium will be as good.
I left the clinic and decided not to get a taxi home but walk to the bus stop (20 mins) stopped by Boots to buy some more slim fast shakes.
I have done 30 mins on the wii fit tonight and I am going to go to bed soon.
just 6 days left to the operation, the nerves are starting to kick in but the excitement is still the biggest feeling there.
Good Night everybody.
