  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!

    GHI & BCBS

    I am just wondering if anyone has ever went through GHI and BCBS because I am almost through my appointments,I was wondering if anyone has been approved through GHI-ppo,and the time limit that they have waited on the approval,I am not in a hurry but I dont want to have to wait,I am ready to start my journey with my new friends so that we can share our stories....
  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....

  16. I have been on this journey sence December 2nd when I went on my first siminar,and now I have till June 22nd,I guess thin give the whole diffinition to Journey,I never thought this trip would ever come to an end,if any one wants to know how long there journey would be it runs about 6 months till everything is complete then you have to wait till per-op testing then the surgery date...I took it as if after the hospital called I was approved and I didnt drive my self crazy....so now the fun begins.....shopping for the proteins and the sugar free foods,juices and the reat of the stuff I will have to get used too.....thanks to all my friends and the support....lots of love camille01...I will keep you all posted....
  17. HI there,Just a word about Auntie Flo. check with your Gyn,and see if she can give you any info on NOVASURE,or look it up on the internet and bring it up to your pcp or gyn and see if they can explain it a little bit better to you,...this is your next porcedure you wll want to have for heavy bleeders...trust me it really works I havnt had a peroid for 3 years so far....look in to it....camille01

  18. Read Psalms 83:18...first give direction to your prayers,you know who you are praying to,then the bible says in order for your prayers to work for you,you have to work with them,so when you pray you need to work with your prayers,start with some of your favorite soups,juices,soft foods like peaches,and keep in mind this is a tool,not a quik fix and it will only help if you let it help you,the drs should have told you that you get that hunger gland removed when you have the procedure done,so you really have to make your self eat....start with some baby food if you have too....it may really help...I'm sorry you feel the way you do,just write and maybe we can help each other,I havnt had my surgery yet,its in June..I need to know what to downs how to gi it as well....thanks for posting you really helped me as to what to look for...........camille01
  19. It's about time,I just got everything complete today.....yeah...now the ball is not in my court...I'm just waiting on my second visit with the surgeon and to receive my instructions as what to do...this had truly been a journey.......6 months of doctors visits of weight management,psych visit,Nutritionist visit,blood test,gallbladder screening and I don't remember what else....THANK GOD....I am finished.....

    I Have a question???

    Hi Lisa,I had a talk with my surgeon and with the haital harnia it is repaired durring the sleeve surgery so its now nuthing to really worry about,she said that it would be easyer for them to get too,some people dont get symptons too much from it but heart burn from the acid in the stomach, just relax and when they do your procedure you will have it all done at the same time....my prayers are with you ..I am awaiting my final wt management then my info will be sent in for approval...Yeah....happy weight loss...camille01
  25. When you love conditionally, you have to keep deciding if the other is worthy of your love. You can never let go of your guard enough to be content. Why not decide once and for all, and love once and for all. And be content. Like Jesus Did....AMEN
