I wanted to give you all an update on what has been going on with my surgery journey.
First, the diet was going well and introducing solid foods was fulfilling and nice to feel full. I was told that she wants me to stay on a puree diet to ensure that my hernia doesn’t get worse or I don’t get blockages from my ileostomy.
Second, I’m going tomorrow morning to get my bloodwork done. This bloodwork will be a full nutrient panel. They will also use this to check levels that a normal blood panel wouldn’t pick up on.
Third, and the main point of this post, I have an appointment Thursday with Nadine. Nadine is my dietitian at UNM Hospital. We will discuss how the diet changes are going, weight loss numbers, and we will officially start the bariatric diet counseling. This will be an hour long meeting over zoom.
I’m grateful that I don’t have to travel all the way over there to do this.
In the future, I am getting an MRI Enterography done August 14 and my Psych Evaluation is on August 25th. I can’t wait to get my surgery date.
I hope you all have a great rest of the week.
