    kellyw74 got a reaction from NoMoore in getting rid of the gas   
    I had my surgery on Monday and when I woke up, I was in KILLER pain from gas. That was the only pain I had. As the night went on, it just intensified and the next day, I could not even sit up straight or take a deep breath! I was MISERABLE!!
    There is NOTHING you can do for that gas pain. I did Gas X, even though my dr. said it wouldn't help, I tried anyway!! LOL!! I tried heating pad, laying on my side and pulling my knees up (as much as I could), kinda like you do a baby, that did nothing. I was just sick I walked A LOT and that did nothing either! I prayed that I would fart or burp, but couldn't!! Man it was awful!!
    Finally, about day 3 1/2, I got to tootin' and LOUD!! Tooted one to many times and crapped my pants! LOL Then I had diahreah for 3 days! But, I felt better!
    So, it WILL break loose, just have to give it about 3-4 days. Sorry that there isn't anything that will help.

    kellyw74 got a reaction from Frustr8 in still vomiting after week 5 HELP   
    I would first of all want to know are you taking a PPI? Also, are you eating too much at one time?? If you are eating too much then it is going to come back up.
    I know it is hard to wrap your head around, but some people can not do the required amount in the begining. They can only do a bite or two and it really takes some time to learn our full signals!! Sometimes we learn too late and then we vomit!!
    Eat SLOWLY!! Take a small bite of whatever and wait 2-3 minutes and then another wait and another...etc. You will know i between those 2-3 minutes if you have had enough.
    Don't eat and drink at the same time, even on liquids!!! That will make you too full and you will vomit!!
    Early out, I could not eat a lot of foods. They felt so tight in my chest and throat. It was from the swelling and some have lots of it, some have very little. Maybe you are just really swollen and sensitive.
    Are you drinking milk or milk products?? If so, lay off them for a couple days, maybe you have beome intolerant. Lots do and milk will make you vomit if you are!
    Your dr. is NUTS to just say BYPASS w/o trying to find out what is making you sick!! If he insists on doing that, I would find another dr.!! ASAP
    Keep us posted on how you are doing!

    kellyw74 got a reaction from dmpsam in How to eat at McDonald's after the sleeve....   
    I take my lunch to work everyday and I eat before I leave if I am going out to do errands on weekends. That way I don't get myself in a perdicament to have to eat fast food.
    I also carry nuts and beef Jerky in my purse for a snack if I should need one. I am 9 weeks out on Monday and I can not see myself eating that food for a LONG time!

    kellyw74 got a reaction from rosy066 in Can I choose the VSG with Kaiser Permanente   
    I had my surgery at Kaiser Richmond and YOU CAN pick your surgery. They will suggest to you what surgery they think is best (for me it was VSG), but it is your option.
    If you chose something that was not right for you or would kill you, obviously they wouldn't do it, but VSG is pretty safe for all!
    Good luck to you !!
