Here's a post that I posted on facebook about my 3 month post-op appointment on December 18th:
I had my 3-month post op appointment today! All good news. Down 48 lbs!!! (My scale at home says 54 but w/e). The MD said I'm 5% ahead of schedule (goal is 30% excess body weight, I'm at 35%!)... I'm smaller than I was when I got married! I'm feeling so good! Only regret is that I didn't have the surgery sooner!
I started losing a little bit of hair around the 2-3 month mark. It was thinning out, so I decided to cut about 7-8 inches off.
