  1. Past hour
  2. I honestly don’t work out. I have good skin.. it went back well. I’ve also had a tummy tuck and some other procedures. That helped a lot.
  3. I cooked the whole dinner, I entertained, I got it all put away and the dishes are done. Whew! I'll confess outright...I nibbled a very very small amount of turkey. (probably less than half an ounce...just one little chunk) But other than that, I was a good doobie and stayed on my liquid diet. It was hell...but the day is winding down and it looks like I made it. Good grief! The smell of baking rolls and the pies....nearly did me in. But I resisted. 11 more days of this till surgery. One day at a time. That's about all I can handle. I know people do this...and they all seem to kinda act like it was no big deal. I am REALLY not enjoying this. I know after the surgery, it's going to be more of the same for a while.....but at least there will be a light at the end of the tunnel and hopefully less hunger. Right now...the diet I've been on for six months...seems decadent and indulgent. I don't mind veggies and lean proteins and low glycemic carbs.....I just want to eat something that casts a shadow again someday:( Kinda crying in my broth tonight. Feel overwhelmed....but I made it through. Proud of that.
  4. I am just over 2 months post-op, I had one okay sized piece of turkey, one small scoop of potatoes (small kid spoon size), one small scoop on cranberries and a bite of a roll and I’m uncomfortably full...
  5. I’m almost 12 weeks out and don’t feel restricted. Is this normal? I don’t really eat a lot but I noticed when I drink water. I used to sip, but now I drink and wait to feel restriction and nothing gives me the tightness. Well, I take that back. When I eat applesauce that’s when I feel the sleeve. I can eat a little chicken and don’t feel the restriction at all.
  6. My son had appendicitis and when I called the dr she asked if he could jump because apparently if you can't jump because of the pain that is an indicator of appendicitis because of the rebound pain.
  7. Today was definitely better than yesterday, and I assume tomorrow will be better than today. The incision pain is th biggest problem I’ve had, I’m doing fine with eating and drinking and have had no nausea.
  8. I had quite a bit of nausea and vomiting the first three days, phenergan suppositories were a godsend!

  11. That’s interesting. Now you’re about 6 mos. out, right? Does your surgeon recommend that as the years go by or just for the first year or so?
  12. Congrats to all my Nov troopers ! We missing more who had it this month hope to hear from them soon. “There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, there are no limits.” —Michael Phelps
  13. You look amazing and good job.. better late than never I say. I’m glad you loving yourself more like so many of us are, cuz choosing surgery is not the easy way. Well to me it isn’t .. any choice where I can lose my life ain’t nothing but easy plus the struggle afterwards. Again [emoji1376] “There will be obstacles. There will be doubters.

  14. Still in a lot of pain since my surgery on Wednesday morning. Staying in hospital for one more night and hopefully getting discharged in the morning pending how well I'm coping with the pain. Anyone have advice on dealing with Pain? Does it get better by day 3?
  15. Call your doctor. If you cant reach him/her then go to an ER at a hospital that has a Bariatric Program. Get well soon. 5' 5" HW: 259 CW: 235 GOAL: Healthy and hard 140-ish?

  19. Had mines yesterday and I feel the same my liquids don’t have a problem my only problem is that I woke up with a shoulder pain as if there’s an air trap there that’s about it. I also though it was going to be bad hearing from people here but I’m more than fine thank the Lord.
  20. Congratulations on your progress!
  21. Arggghhhh. Its thanksgiving how am I going to survive?????[emoji30] Sent from my SM-G935V using BariatricPal mobile app
  22. I'm a DS patient and I take two 500 mg of chewable calcium, two chewable multivitamins of ADEK (Bariatric Advantage), and one sublingual B12 (3000 mcg). That's it per my doctor's orders. Not too bad at all.
  23. @BDME Welllll..... I didn't wait... I had a piece of brownie and a little bit of ice cream.... After today though I'm back to business... Keep up the good work.. WE can do this Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  24. You’re amazing for waiting a year for sweets. I’m a little under 2mo post and I had a piece of pie today. But back on the grind tomorrow!
  25. My surgeon told me to switch to an acetaminophen (Tylenol type) pain reliever to avoid stomach upset after surgery. Should it be a liqui-gel or gelcap, or are caplets and tablets okay?
  26. Oh yes!! That tomato soup Sent from my SM-G935V using BariatricPal mobile app
  27. Hi All, This is my first post. My surgery date is December 21. I was going the insurance route but the hoops I had to jump through were endless and I really wanted to get this done this year, so I am self paying with a different surgeon and hospital. I am both excited and scared. This is the biggest commitment I have made to my health in decades.
