its always a very good sign when your Dr. is happy! My Dr. was happy last time too! and she's a real cutie! LOLOh I've been on solid food for a few weeks now, but small quantities. My stomach has very little volume now and won't stretch either. One mouthful too many and it gets painful! I'm not complaining though, my insulin intake is down by 75%! Hopefully I'll come off it altogether over the next few months, then I can get my truck licence back (The UK is the only country in the world to ban insulin injecting Diabetics from vocational driving, for no justifiable reason). Saw my surgeon this morning for a six week check up and he's very pleased with my progress.
