  4. Vegetarian or Vegan Eating

    This is a place where the emphasis is on supporting vegetarian and/or vegan styles of eating in terms of bariatric surgery and nutrients.

  5. Recipe Sharing

    The sub-forums here are for sharing recipes. There are two different main sections: diet phase and special diet needs. Note that in most cases, a higher diet phase allows foods from lower phases (you can have a full liquid even if you are on solids), so put the recipe in the minimum phase where it can be eaten.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

    • HeBrokeTheChains

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
