It’s #transformationtuesday 😊😊 and we have an update on #RandysTBCjourney !! • • Randy had his first post-operative appointment today (8/28/2018) which is 6 days after his surgery. Randy already feels like he has more energy, and he is sleeping much better. Yesterday Randy drank a little too much too quickly and had some abdominal pain that has now completely resolved. [Although we try to practice drinking and eating slowly before surgery, it is really a learning process after surgery to understand how to eat and drink again with your new stomach.] • • • Otherwise Randy is ecstatic that he is already off 3 of his 4 blood pressure medicines, and he is almost completely off his insulin. He is amazed at how quickly his body is changing. Randy has some bruising around his incisions which is completely normal, but he is not in any pain from his incisions! Randy has lost 5 pounds since surgery!! He will come to clinic again in 3 weeks for another visit and lab check. • • • Thank you to everyone who asked questions, we hope we answered them here. Please let us know what other questions you have for Randy or us! • • • Just like anything else in life, bariatric surgery has ups and downs and we hope you will see that in this journey. We are super excited for Randy and all of our patients who are putting their health first! • • Call (504-988-5110) or direct message about appointments or with any questions • • #rygb #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #weightlossNOLA #fattoffit #fitnola #fitnessfriday #bariatriccommunity #followyournola #weightlosstransformation #TBC #itsyournola #TulaneSurgery #Caloriecounting #eatwell #nolaeats #neworleans #obesity #baritastic #chooseHealth #wls #vsg #rny #sleeve #bariatricsurgeryNewOrleans

For this week’s #weighinwednesday we thought we’d give our perspective on maintaining a good perspective. A lot of change comes with bariatric surgery - dietary, lifestyle, and attitude, among others. It will help your mission to maintain a positive attitude and to recognize the greatness in the changes you are making. “I have to workout” becomes “I get to use my body for physical activity because I can.” “I have to give up soft drinks” becomes “I get to incorporate water and hydrate myself.” “I have to watch my fat and carb intake” becomes “I get to eat so many types of lean protein and vegetables and nourish my body.” Gratitude is an attitude and we want to remind you that your perspective on this journey is your biggest key to success. Happy Wednesday! • • • • #weightlosstransformation #inspo #motivation #TulaneSurgery #Caloriecounting #countingcalories #eatfit #healthy #obesitysurgery #eatwell #savinglives #healthyfoodies #nolahealth #fightthefat #chooseHealth #wls #vsg #rny #sleeve #gastricsleeve #bypass #gastricbypass #nola #losingweight #diabetes #sleepapnea #wlscommunity #obesity

This week’s Weigh In Wednesday theme is Changing Habits. Changing a routine you have had your whole life may not always happen easily. However, if you keep chipping away at unfavorable habits you’ll find real change over time. Give yourself credit for all victories, big and small, and recognize the incredible effort that you have put into your health. Post surgery you need to break habits like eating quickly, gulping liquids, physical inactivity, and possibly emotional eating. These habits may have formed as early as your childhood so it will take some time to replace them with newer, healthier habits. These are skills that can be achieved with patience and practice. Be mindful and kind to yourself, and over time you’ll be able to master these new habits. You’ve got this! • • • • #chooseHealth #wls #vsg #rny #sleeve #gastricsleeve #bypass #gastricbypass #rygb #weightloss #weightlosssurgery #weightlossNOLA #patience #Bariatricsurgery #bariatricsurgeryNola #bariatricsurgeryNewOrleans #fit #mindfulness #weightlosstransformation #TBC #TulaneSurgery #inspiration #habits #obesitysurgery #eatwell #rny #healthyfoodies #nolahealth #fightthefat #weighinwednesday

BMI stands for Body Mass Index; it is a ratio of your height and weight. Calculating your BMI helps determine if your weight is healthy or unhealthy based on your height. If your BMI is higher than 35, then the risks of living at that weight are greater than the risks of bariatric (weight loss) surgery. Click on link in profile to calculate your BMI.

Great presentation today on the #MSLTII Trial. Friday conference discussing #Melanoma #MLSTII #SurgeryEducation #SLNB. Have you read about the new #MSLTII Trial outcomes? There is no difference is #MelanomaSpecificSurvival for those undergoing immediate completion #lymphnodedissection vs. observation! Those undergoing #completiondissection had #lymphedema 24% vs. 6% of the time. Does this change your management? #melanomaawareness #melanoma #tulanemedicalschool #tulanesurgery #surgeryresidency #surgicaleducation #skincancer #sentinellymphnodebiopsy #lymphnodedissection #lymphedema

Congrats to Morgan for finishing her first marathon. Lots of hard training went into this. Great job. . #lagniappe #lagniappecrossfit #crossfit #nola #followyournola #itsyournola #health #fitness #weightlifting #gymnastics #endurance #Repost @morganmartinmd with @repostapp ・・・ We had such an amazing time today. We both PR'd our 1/2 marathon time! Me by 10 min! As everyone says, the last 6 miles were the worst and had me begging for mercy 😭haha but we finished! My first marathon and finished under 4 hrs at 3:54:43 pace of 8:57. That last bit was killer and incredibly humbling. Not sure how I will ever be able to do it again. Thank you to all those following my training. And also to my coach and gym @lagniappecrossfit I couldn't do it without you. Couch to marathon in <8 months.
