Had my 6 month post op appointment today, a month late (as I was on vacation when it was orginally scheduled)
The best part when she came to get me I turned around and she said OH I thought you were a drug rep, not a WLS patient. :)
She said I need to eat more calories some days I go under 1000 and she said that can make you not lose weight.
She told me about this great machine there called MedGem that you breath into and it tells you how many calories a day you should be eating based on your Body Fat, she said if I hit a plateau that this would be great to do. She said it's $150 if insurance doesn't cover it. Interesting on the flyer it shows 2 women both weighing 153 one needs to eat 1,571 calories a day and the other 1,252. She mentioned a patient of her was told she needed to eat 2400 and was eating 1200 and that's why she wasn't losing weight.
Think you should check it out! See if your Dr office offers it.
