    Definitely wait til your incisions are completely healed. I only take showers,so it hasn't bothered me at all.but I know there are those who love their baths!

    Hi My name is Kathy
    Live in Tucson,have lived here for 30 years.I am 53,single and have 3 children.I originally started this process about 3 years ago,and my insurance intially turned it down and I blew it off as I had other things going on at the time that were more important.Last year I decided to try again as I found out I am to have another grandson this May.I started out at 353lbs and I am 5ft1 inch.I was originally going to have a lapband,because the down time was really short,so I was seeing the surgeon doing all the nutrition visits withe the dietician and the surgeon decided to close up practice and move up to Phx.,His office sends my file to another dr, DRS Monash and Welle,which was the best thing that could have happened to me! After seeing Dr Welle and he described in detail all 3 surgeries I decided the VGS was the one I wanted,They submitted my claim to my ins.and it was approved the same day in a few hrs! I was estatic! I had my surgery on the 20of March and had my first post op yesterday,19lbs down. And Drs monash and Welle also have a supportgroup once a month that meets at TMC the first sat of the month from 1030-12 and there is a free Zumba class at the end.Any one can come regardless of what surgery they had and doesnt matter who did the surgery.Everyone is WELCOME

    Also there are Ready To Drink Isopure Protein Drinks they have 40 grams of Protein. Are a clear ( a little thick) drink. There are various flavors I preferred alpine punch. Available at GNC, Vitamin warehouse needs to be very cold to drink

    azquilter92 got a reaction from Iweeny in What are the best and tastiest protein bars?   
    My surgeon has this rule. A Protein Bar should have a 1:10 ratio
    Meaning if it has 150 calories it should have at least 15 grams of Protein
    200 calories-20 grams of protein
    Its not a hard fast ,or medically scientific. But the one thing we need most of all is protein and not wasted calories

    You really should try to avoid bread, Pasta, and rice,they do tend to swell in your sleeve. Try and stick to good Protein sources,meat,fish,eggs,yogurt,then veggies,but it really depends what your surgeon has told you to do

    I agree with lifetimeloser. And as I posted on another thread. We should be ambassadors of our new lifestyle.be open and honest.eventually they will know.or think you're dying of some awful disease because of how much wieght you've lost.might as well come clean.you might help someone who needs to make this lifesaving decision but diesnt know where to go ir who to talk to. Be proud of what you have done
