    Where are the 50s ???

    I live in Port Angeles, had my sleeve done for my 50th birthday. Best present I ever got. That was on Jan of 2010. I have lost 128# since then. I do have some hanging skin and will need a body lift when I'm done loosing but it was so worth it. No problems on airplanes, now going to the gym is something I look forward to, and l Love that I can know buy clothes in a regular store. And am finding it hard to believe that the clothes at Cathrine's are too big now. Yay!!!!

    Where are the 50s ???

    I'm 51 and it's been 13 months since I was sleeved. Have been going thru the hot flashes since Nov. The only good thing about this is that it's the only time I'm not cold. Problem is it only lasts few minutes. Brenda

    hot flushes

    I have been getting these kind of hot flashes for the last 3 months. I figured I was probubly menopausal as I am 51. Check with your doc you could be perimenopausal, there is a test they can do to check for this. Brenda

    Diabetes

    I was super insulin resistant prior to surgery, on metformin2000mg, gliberide4mg, and 70+ units of insulin. Within 3 months I was able to quit taking all meds and in Oct. when I had labs done A1C was 5.5. This is a level that they don't consider you diabetic anymore. From what I've seen it either get to normal or is greatly reduced. Brenda

    First postop labwork

    Congrats Kathy on the great lab results. I ahd the same responce from my Primery care PA, this was the first time had seen this PA and told him about my surgery and that I had stopped taking meds for diabetes and high BP. His responce was just because I had lost 85lbs didn't mean I wasn't daibetic anymore and ordered the labs like you had, the result was like yours just low in vit D,and my A1C was 5.5 and he wrote WOW great results! Like he expected them to be off the charts or something. Needless to say I am changing Docs. Brenda
