    The dreaded hair loss

    So we all fear the dreaded hair loss! I am desperate so I decided to use a home remedy for hair loss. I am putting the gel of the aloe vera in my conditioner. It has been less than 2 weeks so I can not really see any change. I will keep you posted to see if it works for me
  2. Sorry to hear that your repaired hernia is painful. I had a hiatal hernia too but not as painful as yours. I did get slight discomfort with gas but what really helped me is children suppository. I had gas and well it hurt to push so I used my baby's suppository and whala...The pain dissipated. I hope this helps and you have a quick recovery.

    The surgery is not that bad... Gas is the most painful. I took gas-x but what helped is the suppository. I used children suppository the first week to relieve some discomfort. Also, listen to your stomach when full. Sip gradually and stick to your diet. Just my 2 cent during post op. Best of luck!

    I am only 11 days post op... I will keep you posted. I also worry about the dreaded hair loss and skin sagging. I do take my vitamins, calcium, and protein to prevent hair loss but what about skin. Will I be able to tone it up in the gym before my big 40

    July Master List

    Hi, I was sleeved with cute pie by Dr Aceves, so please add me!
  10. Suzanne, You are a sleeve guru. I am going to get sleeved by Dr. Aceves. He sleeved you in 2008 and I feel confident on his method of surgery
  11. Cathi Thank you for your reassuring words. Even though I am fully confident on Dr. Aceves and hid staff, I can not help to feel a bit apprehensive All this positive feedback is helping! Good luck with your recovery and keep me posted. I will be going the 29 July.
  12. Congratulations you are almost there. I hear nothing but positive news on Dr. Aceves. I will be joining the sleeve family soon. Positive affirmations put my tension at ease. Thank you!
  13. I really do not know how they oversew, but doctors in the states usually only use staples and surgical adhesion. My fear is stomach content causing an infection in the abdominal cavity. I am going to Dr. Acerves in Mexico.
  14. I know there are different methods of surgery by different doctors. Has anyone heard of pin holes in stomach due to oversew? What is the difference between glue and manual stitch?
  15. Thanks Leslie... I am going to check but most shakes should contain all the nutritional value required. I'm also going to look into wonders and cocomint sounds yummy.
