  1. For those of you that have had DS. which multivitamins did your physician put you on ? what form did they come in? And have you had any problems with malabsorption as long as you have stayed consistent with your vitamins?

    Fibromyalgia and Sleeve

    The surgery pain is not as bad as it was before. However I still cannot go for walks. I am swimming though. I have an appointment to speak with the doctor about furthering my surgery into the DS. The nurse practitioner seemed very excited that he would allow this after reviewing my charts. Even though I am following the very low-carb diet the weight-loss is excessively slow. I know if I could just do more that would help but the Fibromyalgia pain is still there.

    IV Port

    I have had a very difficult time staying hydrated since my surgery. I ended up in the hospital for three days last week and I have been in an infusion center 4 days not to include the actual three days I had right after the surgery. I just can't seem to drink enough and I am so sick and tired of being poked and prodded. Have any of you had or considered getting in an a port so that you could get your proper hydration and blood work done? If so, how did you bring up the discussion with your dr.? I have a Fibromyalgia and every poke feels like a knife stab. I'm really getting frustrated with this whole mess.

    Approval letter with date

    To follow up I did get a new approval letter from Aetna a few days before surgery with the correct date.
