  1. Hi, my name is Kristin. I'm 20 and a sophomore in college in TN, but next semester I will be attending LSU. I am currently 4 days post op and getting a little depressed and feeling like I'm not following the diet plan correctly. I would love to have a mentor/buddy/friend that understands what I'm going thru! 8)
  2. So, I just had my surgery on Friday, April 22, and my post op journey has not been all that good. Right when I got out of surgery, I was in SO MUCH PAIN! This was my first major surgery, so I didn't really know what to expect. I woke up with so much pain in my back from gas! This pain was so unbearable, I was wishing I would have never done this. Also, I started waking up earlier than they thought I would during surgery while they were taking the tube out of my throat and began coughing terribly. So for the first couple of days I was coughing up blood. The positive thing at this time is that I have already lost 5 lbs and hope to continue losing. I have really been trying to stay positive thru the pain, so if anyone has any encouraging words, please feel free to share 8)
