Test yesterday was negative. So we now have a patient with symptoms of a respiratory tract infection, a negative-positive-negative test constellation and nobody seems to really know how to proceed further from there and referred to the public health department.· 3 replies
Antigen/Antibody testing available?
Yes, PH department was just like "Well, no quarantine for you, go back to work!" - yeah, the hell I won't with an infection of the respiratory tract. I'm on sick leave until the end of the week per my GP (waiting for the paper to arrive with mail as they don't want you to come in in person if possible).
Hospital is a bit more cautious than PHD and didn't press me to come back tomorrow. They suspect recent unnoticed infection and wanted me to come in today for drawing blood for antibody testing. So now I'm stalking my labs for the results from home via VPN-client.
So sorry to hear this ..... i'll keep you in my thoughts and prays for a speedy recovery. Praying that all goes well
The vacation was great and lovely and I stayed very active while still getting to sample foods I hadn't yet tried since surgery. After getting back, I decided to stay off of social media for a little while, which also included these forums. I had a lot of work in the office to catch up on and needed to focus on that. Of course, the past week or so I have been struggling a lot mentally and emotionally. I've desperately wanted comfort food and have done well not giving into that temptation. This week doesn't feel like it'll go much better, but October always seems to be the worst month for me.· 1 reply
Had an anxiety dream last night involving a substantial weight gain in the past week. Absolutely no basis in reality since I've stayed on plan. I think it stems from Saturday when I ate some extra calories due to a 2 hour hike earlier in the day that burned 900 calories. The extra calories brought my total intake up for 1025, as opposed to 700-800. And my extra calories were from curry egg salad, so it was a protein packed choice. And yet, my brain some how decided that would lead me to gain 10 pounds in one week and threw that are me while I slept. Brains can be jerks.
Glad to hear you are doing ok. I noticed you missing from here and was a bit concerned as it sounded like you were dealing with some stuff.
Great work with staying on plan on vacation! Always a tougher than the routine at home.
I’m getting a little impatient waiting for my final consult with my doctor (December 1st). I know it’s right around the bend, really, but I’m ready already. If they called me tomorrow and told me to begin the pre-op diet I’d be like “Yes what is the protocol,” and BAM, started. But I’m just waiting...patiently.· 0 replies

I am in the starting stages of this my first dr appointment is not until Jan I am in constant pain with my back and joints Im leaning towards surgery but its a big decision and change I basically have 9 months to figure it out I guess Im most worried about if I can deal with the pain after surgery· 2 replies
Hi there - like any surgery, there will be some pain after WLS; however, you should not suffer from uncontrolled or unbearable pain. Talk to your surgeon before-hand about what the plan will be for pain-control and what the fallback will be if that doesn't work. In my case, I had a lot of post-op pain and my surgeon had to increase my dose of pain meds to get it under control. Runaway pain hinders healing, so don't try to tough it out, work with your doctor to reduce it to a reasonable level. Good luck, whatever you decide!
i had the lapband placed in 2009 i was back at in 5 days, that was 2009. In 2017 band slipped and had it removed on a thursday and was back at work on Monday. Sleeved 8/28/19 at 51 y/o on a wednesday and was back at work on monday.
As long as you do your preop diet correctly and you get walking you should be fine.
