It's All Good: Loose granny panties, benign tumors, normal hormone levels, and weight loss
Granny Panties: Noticed an uncomfortable feeling of sliding granny panties while at work. Prior to WLS, my matronly granny panties were embarrassingly tight. But recently, as the panties kept falling down at work, I realized that the granny panties are no longer tight/snug. They were falling down because there wasn't enough tummy fat to keep them in place.
Benign Tumors: Got the pathology reports from my thyroid surgery...the tumors were benign. Thyroid cancer is very treatable but I feel lucky to be able to skip treatment and just deal with benign tumors.
Normal Hormone Levels: Two weeks post op, my blood work reflects that I have normal thyroid hormone levels. I'm feeling better everyday.
Weight Loss: I'm losing weight. Will change my tracker once it stabilizes a bit and stops fluctuating.
Irregularity GONE!: I really think the flax seed has helped...its made me consistently smooth and regular. I just put a TB in my morning cup of cereal.
Hope you are well. Thanks for all your support. Checking my blog is like going to support group everyday. I've said it before, but I think after people go through the internal struggle of obesity, they usually emerge as really kind, sensitive and insightful people. I have found so much support online, I appreciate you!
