  1. I haven't been here in a while. I was three weeks out one day before I could start mushies, and I started getting sick. I couldn't even drink water. Turns out I have a leak. I spent one week in the hospital with nothing by mouth. I now have a feeding tube with nothing by mouth. I am at home now which is a big plus. I went in 2 days ago for another EGD, and a leak repair. They feel that everything went well, but said now we just have to wait and see how it heals. My throat is killing me now. They scratched it up during the EGD. I'm feeling really down, and scared. Please let me know if you have experienced any of these things, and how they turned out.
  2. Had my one week post op visit today. Got my staples out, and all is well. The BEST part is, I lost 17 pounds!!!! 10 pounds week before and 7 this week!! That did help my mood!!!! I'm feeling better today. Yesterday was sooo hard with the head hunger and SICK of protein shakes. Two more weeks to go, then I get some REAL soft food! YEA!!!!

I'm trying to prepare myself for the pain, but IDK if there is really a way to!! It does help talking to y'all!!! Does the gas-x help at all???

  16. Hi, I am so confused with which surgery to go with. I have read so many things about both bypass & the sleeve that I'm totally torn. My Dr. first suggested bypass, but said I could do either one. I'm just curious what made you choose the sleeve over bypass?:scared0: Thank you for your help!!!!
