    I am a food addict as well and can relate. I am also a recovering alcoholic and suffer from Major Depressive Disorder. I wish I had some words of wisdom but I do not, just wanted you to know that you are not alone. I am about 10 weeks out, feel free to PM if you want to chat.

    after that long, you're probably in maintenance. If you want to lose more, you'll have to cut your calories. Log everything you eat....and weigh and measure things like meat, cheese, etc. Portion creep is real. I know I'll have to weigh, measure, and track for the rest of my life, or I'll start gaining weight.

    I was banded 6/30/17. Today, for the first time, my food came back up. My throat is burning and I have some soreness. Is this pretty common?

    Congrats on your amazing results. You have gotten some great advise already. If your diet is okay, you need to check your vitamin levels. If you are not loosing, you might not be supplementing right or enough.

    Dr Felix

    Wow. I used dr Felix in Fresno also. My wls was in 2006 and I have been thankful ever since. I think he has moved his practice to Santa Maria now. He did a good job for me. The follow up was a little lacking, but in 2006, the info wasn't as clear [emoji93]

    I'm so excited to finally be this close! It's been an extremely long journey for me. I've been close before but it never happened due to various reasons. This time, it's happening! It's the closest I've been, all my clearances have happened, all my weight management, my psych eval is done! I'm currently scheduled for my preop and nutrition class on 10/23... I'm so ready for this!

    Hi everyone! I'm me and nervous. I just turned 60 years old. I think I'm officially grown up now. I'm young at heart, goofing around with my grandchildren all nine of them. I have had crohns disease since I was 19'years old. I still managed to make it through nursing school and more ask retired after 35 years. My husband and I have custody of three of our grandchildren after our son in law died and our daughter ran away. One of the things I would like to run by the members is my feeling of selfishness about having this gastric sleeve. I'm overweight, diabetes, hip replacement and crohns. I feel that if I didn't make it through surgery, it would absolutely devastate the grandkids again! I never thought I could even have a sleeve done due to having all of my colon and rectum removed. So, I have an ileostomy. I have a huge hernia at the site. I went to Duke University and the gastroenterologist suggested I have weight loss surgery because if he repairs the hernia, the weight will cause it to come back. I'm scheduled in three months.
