    Babypink002 got a reaction from GreenTealael in REVISION   
    Hello everyone!
    I am in need of some help/guidance!
    I had gastric sleeve in 2012, out of the country, due to no insurance at the time.
    Now I feel I need a revision. I have insurance - United HealthyCare Oxford.
    Does anyone have any experience with these circumstances?
    Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you in advance.

    Babypink002 got a reaction from patkaye in 3 Days Post-Op   
    I had my surgery on 3/28/12!!
    Makes me 3 days post-op
    And I feel just fine. I had no pain after surgery, they removed the morphine by Thurs. I have very little-to no discomfort and am able to drink my liquids per day. I am very grateful for such a great recovery session
    I'm just a bit confused
    I don't know when I should be drinking. I literally feel like I'm drinking all day long!
    For example today
    830am-cup of tea
    Between 915-11 drinking Water
    I mixed 16oz of water with 2 1/2 scoops of whey Protein
    I am still drinking that
    And at 1230-broth
    I am able to keep everything down no problem
    I'm still w the protein from this morning
    Is this normal??
    I feel like a need a time line
    Any suggestions?

    "I'm having surgery soon, what will I need for my hospital stay or for shortly after???"
    Okay, ladies and gentlemen, this question comes up here so much - I felt it would be a great idea to start up an official thread. My plan is once I think the list is great enough, I'm going to create a checklist for all the folks out there that will be sleeved shortly and have the above question. Then if you are around long enough and as much as I am, and someone has that question you can just lead them to this thread. Fair enough?
    Sometimes it's just nice to have everything all in the same place, kinda following the Walmart rule of thumb. They are very successful, aren't they?
    Anyway, please start with your suggestions and I'll get my MSWord fired up. I'll also start with the first suggestion:
    Comfy Pajamas, underclothes, and slippers or warm cozy socks...
