  1. Any body else have a bout with your roids in your first fews weeks? I think mine was cause from having severe Diarrhea caused from the liquid diet and not having a gall bladder... But they got reved up and it took 3 weeks to get them under control. I really hate the sitting on a golfball feeling and the throbbing and itching... I finally broke out the Apple cider vinegar and put them out of my misery... WHew! thank you lord for giving us the brains to figure out home remedy's...
  2. Hey, I'm from Fort Smith and I had a sleeve from Dr. Goodnight on june 29th and I love it. I have lost 30 lbs as of my 6 week check up and have no problems aside from a small case of over active bowels from not having a gall bladder.. Other than that it's been hunky dorie....

    Yes your age probably has everything to do with it... I had no problems up untill i hit 35 then i started to notice that i had waining intrest in my wife's attention. I went on for about 2 years then i hit 40, and the bottom fell out out the bucket. I went to the doctor and learned that my t level was 120. Way low for a forty year old... shots cured me. My levels have been as high as 1000 and i have never felt aggressive or hostile ever. I always feel alot more confident when taking it and it takes about a second to get me intrested in sex with my wife, i think it's the best thing since sliced bread...

    Hello Fellow Losers

    Your getting a great jump on this journey, I wish i would have had this surgery about 15 years ago when i was 30... I would have never reached 485lbs and ruined my knees, back, hips and general health.. good luck to you...
  12. I was a type II diabetic taking 500mg of Metformin(morning) and 18mg shot of victoza(evening) a day I di not take any meds to the hospital on june 29th for my surgery... I also have not taken any since the surgery.... off all blood pressure and high colesterol meds....
  13. I had severe sleep apnea before my surgey (480 lbs) I would have over 100 apena's per hour.. Now I weigh 322.5 lbs and I had to be switched to an auto titrating machine becuase my apnea is decreasing so fast they can not keep up with it. I was 136 on the disruptive sleep scale, now i am a 26.. 20 is normal i hope to be off the machine by 2012. My first pressure setting was 16, now it's 4.2 the machine only goes to 3.... As soon as you start losing weight they are going to have to change the pressure settings on your machine so make sure they give you an auto titrating machine in the first place.... Good luck on your journey it is worth every PITA....

    Biggest loser...

    Streched skin will not ever shrink back into position. It's like the elastic that has been worm out in an old pair of under wear, when its gone its gone. Now, you can fill the bagging parts with bigger muscles and reduce the look of the sagging skin ,but it will never return to it's old look... Have you ever seen an old body builder in their 70's? They have the same bagging/sagging issues. They stretch their skin with their muscle then when they get older and stop working out the muscle start to shrink and the skin saggs.. When I was in high school I played high level Football and worked out feircely 5 days a week! My biceps were 20" around and I could bench press over 400lbs for 5 reps and a set of 3.... I squated over 500lbs and my thighs were 28" around and I only weighed 200lbs... I had stretch marks on my biceps and my thighs from the muscle streching the skin. I still have the strech marks today and much worse from all the fat.... I went from 200 lbs of pure muscle with 5% body fat to 470lbs and 70-80% body fat in 25 years.....

    When will i feel better?

    I would say you should start feeling better by day 5-6 and you need to move, get out of the bed, off the couch and walk or somthing other than just sitting... get cleaned up and go to wal-mart just do somthing other than sit in the house and feel bad....Good luck ! The gas issue was helped by laying on my side when i was asleep, I would wake up to enomous gas movements!!! (FARTS) wow!!! and it was the high light of a couple of days!!

    I think most men that are over weight have issues with their Testosterone levels. I know I did and was taking shots....My doctors has since had me stop taking them but my test leves has dropped again not as low as it was before but it has dropped near 325 it should be around 700-850 IIRC....Before shots and while fat with diabetes it was 120... I have lost 50 lbs in 3 months... see sig below for all my lost perscriptions....

    Pre-op diet

    You can also get a a headache from Ketones, While on any low carb high protien diet you will eventually go into Ketosis and your body will start burning fat versus sugars.The by -product of this are ketones, which can cause a severe headache for up to 7 days... Good luck!
