  3. Hello everyone,I'm new to the site,I have had the sleeve and I agree with you in every way,this is nothing to be suffered through this is a life changing experience,we didn't get here over night this took a life time and it's going to take the rest of our life to correct it,I am currently considering the gastric bypass because I feel like I failed myself with the sleeve but I know I didn't ,I just let my self down and now I have to pick my self up,I had a major let down in my life,I had to have spinal surgery and I've been out of work for 2 year,I had one year to recover from my spinal surgery and my sleeve gastrectomy at the same time now I am suffering from back pain all the time I can't get out like I want to so now I have to retrain my self in a new way of life all over again so I am considering getting the gastric bypass,I love sweets and i can still eat them with the sleeve,I know I can't eat them with the gastric bypass so I am considering getting this done if my insurance approves it ,If your gonna get the sleeve done I would recommend the gastric bypass because I started regaining my weight and that's the last thing I want to do,so if your gonna go 1/2 way why not go all the way!

  6. Hi Everybody, My doctor told me not to take anything except stool softners because its too soon after surgery to take anything else.......I had my VSG on June 30th and that was my same concern as well...and always do what your doctor tell you to do If not you will start loosing your hair and wonder why...please take your protein..and sip,sip,sip,....if your hair get brittle go to a beauty store and find some ALPHA_GEE hair shampoo and reconstructor,its like a conditioner and it is wonderful...just dont take anything that may be harsh for your stomach because it is very delicate and you can cause it to bleed inside at least up to 1 year after surgery ...donot lift anything till you are off medical leave no more than 5-10lbs for atl;ease up to 6 months later....and your doctor says its ok...after about 3-4 months it will be ok to take gas-x or mirlax.....or something for constupation....trust me it is worth calling your nutritionist or the assistance nurse or some one who works along with the doctor....its your stomach so please take care of it...( also if you feel your weight has stopped this means you need to get a little motivated to start the fat burning process...it not gonna fall off itself)..so you have to work with the sleeve in order for it to work for you...so keep up the good work...get a gym membership and get used to the tread mill..it will; become your best friend....trust me I know....best of luck to everyone.....

    a few words to those in dought.

    Hello,It is a personal desision who you want to know about your own body,,but you dont want to have it on your coutious,if something may go wrong and you didnt tell anyone but you can always print off some of the info and share it with your family,the support is great because you will be in the hospital for 2 days and you will need the help around the house....they will be good to help and you can not do any lifting or even go to the store...so it is good to have family around to help....please reconsider and pick and choose who you want to know and also you want them to keep it confadential(you dont want anyone else to know....
