I'm a bit late for my 2 year surgiversary (Dec 18). Weight is floating around in the 190-195 range.
Did labs December 30th, got them back last week. I've managed to pull D and K out of deficiency, but have fallen into deficiency in Zinc. I have changed my Zinc and increased the dosage (Supposedly Picolinate is more absorbable that Gluconate). I'm doubling up on Folate because it's slipping into deficiency. Also I still haven't been able to move out of anemia. My TIBC is at least back to normal.
I need to get a Doctor's appointment to ask about the BUN and liver hormones (AST/ALT).
Cramping is still an intermittent problem. Mostly it's in my feet during the 'night'. Walking to the bathroom and back is usually enough to clear it so I can get back to sleep. Been fighting with fatigue. Muscle weakness and numbness in my legs another unwelcome addition to the gripe list. I'm not numb like "I can't feel my legs!" more like after you've run a long way and your muscles feel kind of fat and tingly.
I have been sleeping better. Bought a new CPAP mask and a chin strap. I would have to shave my face to change to a mask that covers my mouth and nose, so this seems to be a reasonable compromise. Usually I'm getting about 7 hours and am up 1-2 times a night, on a good night I'm down for 5 hours and then go back to sleep for another 2-2 1/2 hours. on a bad night I might sleep 3-4 hours then be up every hour and a half or so. There are a lot more good nights than bad now.
Still have trouble seeing my size. I just ordered a sweater and had a freak out moment when I unwrapped it ("Is this a kid's size?). Of course it fit and is , if anything, a little loose.
