   Hello everyone,  just got back from her Dr. apt  with the surgeon.  He said she has a structure. Going to go in and scope the pouch and fix the problem.  He said nothing to worry about.  He is concerned with her weight. Has lost a little since her takedown. Down to 94lbs.  but he is just going to watch her,  Don't know  if she is just more active now.  Doesn't seem to eat as much as she used .  She said she gets full quicker.   So that wil be this Monday.

I am sure that things will go fine on Monday. I would think that with feeling better her appetite should improve.
