  1. Hey everyone, I'm noticing I'm starting to feel REALLY hungry since I had my GB removed Friday. It's a painful hunger too. Before I could go hours not realizing that I haven't eaten. Now it seems that I feel this empty stomach feeling every 2-3 hours. Is this normal?? Please tell me this goes away.
  2. Hi All! I'm looking for sleevers in the DMV area. I hope to be sleeved in August and it's really hard to find good support groups in this area. Feel free to post here or send me a message!

    Legs are crossed

    From the album: After the sleeve

    I can't stop crossing my legs, just because I can.
  4. HI group members~~ It's been kind of quiet so I wanted to try and open the discussion up a bit. Let's introduce ourselves, tell where we are in our process, pre-op diets, etc and use this thread as a motivational tool for our upcoming surgeries I'll start. I'm 4 days into my pre op diet, scheduled 3/6/12 with Dr. Mann at Portsmouth Naval Hospital, Virginia. Right now I'm taking it minute by minute then hour by hour. That is the best I can do right now.
  5. Hey everyone. I hope all is well. I haven't been feeling good for the past 2 days. I noticed that its correlating to my forecasted period start of tomorrow. For years, I've been able to pinpoint the start of my period by my pre-period symptoms of bloating, chocolate cravings, and excessive road rage. Now, everything is different. I'm nauseous, especially at the sight and smell of food. The only thing Ive really been eating today is a pack of crackers and gatorade. They seem to settle my stomach. I've never experienced this much nausea before. I don't like this. I have a weird fear of throwing up. It hurts too much. Did anyone else notice a change in your cycle symptoms? What can I do to combat this nausea?

  20. Hey everyone! I have seperated stomach muscles from my first pregnancy. I ended having a c-section and every since then I've suffered lower back pain. My doctor says this is because my core muscles no long support my back. From what I understand, they lace your muscles back together like a corset. I would like to have this repaired and would like to know of your experiences or any stories that you have heard about it to determine if its worth the hassle. THANKS!
