  3. BTW I can even eat pickles which were a fav before surgery...and no issues some do have issues with that as well... I think sometimes I just need a sodium kick...
  4. yeah definately I do not eat a lot of carbs makes me feel tooo full...ugh the only time I felt like I was having a bad dumping syndrome was when I was eating oranges... other wise Ive been good, I do not crave sweets at all, not even before surgery... now I am 9 months out and it is def a learning process.. not too many things upset me so I am lucky I guess I think it gets easier as time goes on... hang in there
  5. just weird I did not expect the tugging feeling..she told me it would come out easlily and I felt like it didnt but no worries...its not painful.. IMO not nearly as painful as having your stomach removed....lol it will be fine and better everyday.
  6. Im almost 9 months out, and I was told I could have wine after 1 month post op. Im able to drink as much as I did before, feel like I get buzzed at the same rate as I did before too, the only thing I noticed is that where I used to like red wine I only like the whites now..I do agree with the transfer addiction too, be careful

  17. I think I will give it a try..thanks for posting
  18. within the first week I was driving, I never took any pain meds once I got home so it wasnt an issue. My Doc said once you are off the pain meds its ok to drive..now lifting was another story I had to wait a month for that.
  19. Sounds Good Meggie, I think I might give it a try, mine are still a little reddish..

    Itchy Incisions

    I was told it is part of the healing process. I was also told not to put anything on them right after surgery..Wish I could help you!
  21. they told me to bring mine, I put it on voluntarily the first night b/c I was afraid with all the pain meds..second day I didnt wear it. They didnt force me to wear it at all.
  22. I have to believe that it will get better..come om with this many calories ,,,we have to loose .....right.?
