Thursday is my one year anniversary of my LapBand surgery. I have lost 73 pounds so far. Since my last band adjustment I haven't lost anymore. I have an appointment in early April for my one year checkup and hope to get refilled so I can start to lose weight again. Today I have a doctors appointment with my regular MD. I usually see her as a followup with my surgeon. Since October I have been having congestion in my chest every morning after having had a terrible cold. I also get a tightness as it starts to get congested at night. If I laugh suddenly at night or talk too loudly it causes me to cough. When I start to cough I get a horrible headache. This worries me more than the congestion. Although things have improved, I still have the symptoms and it's time to get checked. The headache also comes if I bend over to tie my shoes or pick up something off the floor. It lasts usually about 10 minutes or so. When it started it was really awful so it has improved. I am thinking it is my sinuses and that I have a lingering sinus infection and that may even be causing the congestion in my chest. We'll see if I am right. The little picture on my blog is the picture that was chosen by my band buddies who also were banded the same month as me. Spring is here but our weather here is very unpredictable. Lots of rain and sun and a big storm is predicted for tomorrow. Crazy-don't these weather guys know it's spring??
