    Honestly, how much do you vomit?

    I vomited once in 4 months at 3 months out and I had eaten bad food.
  2. I would stick with your own liquid diet for about 3-4 weeks, atkins based shakes and if you only need 35 lbs you can focus for that short period of time, then weigh in and qualify.
  3. I have a photo of my stomach and my hernia. They sent mine to pathology and found cancer so they kept it there for more testing if needed by my oncologist. If they find nothing they dispose of it as a biohazard.

    Scale and Motivation Stuck!

    Completely normal, search 3 week stall, you may not technically be 3 weeks, maybe a little more, but still applies. Stick with it! Also, check your inches!

    In serious need

    Get on it! You had this surgery for a reason, it is a Blessing, don't waste it! Get up, get moving and stay on track!
  7. The big issue here is clotting, especially in the legs. I did travel 2.5 weeks post op, but I would be very cautious. This is how embolisms are formed.

    Iud...TOM?

    I still get horrible cramps and I have an IUD. My periods never stopped with them. Just after surgery my first period was heavier, but now they are about normal in strength, but go a few days longer.

    Getting your energy back

    I work at a desk job. I had my surgery on a Friday afternoon, released Saturday morning from the hospital. Worked from home on Wednesday. Was in the office on Thursday and Friday, but I slept right when I got home and all weekend. The next week was a bit rough with nausea in the morning, but I had a prescription for that. Otherwise, I was good. I made it!

    Flippity Floppity

    Yes it happens, some spring back, others don't. For those that don't, there is always plasics. I'd wait a year at least though!

    Dehydration!

    Also, grab some pineapple flavored coconut water, it might be a little gross, but helps alot right away!

    Ab exercises?

    I was cleared at 6 weeks and started them at about 2.5 months, it hurts cause Im out of shape, but glad I'm doing them!

    Change in strategy. What strategy works best for you?

    I'm still emotionally eating. I may resort to a psych. Right now I'm trying to focus on the basics again with protein first and counting calories. This is our life now...I need to accept it and get over whatever relationship I have with food. Still struggling...

    everytime i swallow something..

    Yes, mine gave it to me for 3 months. I am at 3 months and just ran out, I am going to go get more. It makes a huge difference. Also, GasX, strips will help with the gas pains.

    Low Calories

    Initially, the first 6 weeks or so you cannot physically eat more than a few hundred calories, if that. Over time, a few months into it, your nutritionist will let you know how much you should be eating. I have to eat 1000 calories a day. We need calories from good sources. Otherwise you will become lethargic. The key is to get your protein in first, then veggies, etc. Protein is the only thing we cannot get from a vitamin and we need on a daily basis plus it helps with hunger. The few week period your calories are low doesn't cause "starvation" mode. Once your body heals you must have the proper intake, but it will be hard to make sure you hit those numbers initially.
