  1. I'm 5 weeks post op today, and I can tell you from my experience, it is a whole lot better today than it was 3 weeks ago. Hell It's better than last week. I've started working out since last Monday, I get very thirsty so I take a good size gulp just to have it in my mouth and then just swallow slowly. Usually like to swallows and its down. But it really seems to quench my thirst. Good luck- it gets better and easier!!

  2. I make homemade pizzas on lite pitas for the crust. I Used to make em before surgery. My family loves them. I'll be 6 weeks post op in a week, can't wait to make one. I make a butternut squash sauce and use all fresh veges for toppings. Toast it in the conv oven or a toaster oven. So YUMMY!!!

  3. I am 15 days post op today. And I feel great except for my big incision is still very swollen and has a big knot and it hurts like Hell about 50% of the time. Dr. Told me Friday its normal and will last about another 2 weeks or so. So my question for u all is, was this normal for most and is there anything I can do to ease the pain/soreness- I'm taking my lortab at night in order to sleep comfortably? Thanks, any comments would be appreciated.

  4. miracle20, haven't heard anything else from you. I'm hoping ur ok. And like someone said, everyone here is great, and willing to help they are also full of info. So whatever ur concerns or questions if you don't get assistance here, please be sure you get it somewhere. Good luck sweety!!

  5. Walk, walk. Walk. I know everyone says it, but its the nest way to get rid of the air. I wad just sleeved on Monday and the first two days the pain was unreal due to the gas pain. But walking really helped, now its almost completely gone. Welcome to the club and feel better soon!!!

  6. I think SML1977 us right, it must depend on the region. I too am in Riverside, I contacted the wellness dept myself to start the 12week Options classes, completedtbose April 27 and did everythi.g else as far as labs and testing, I just got my sleeve on Monday July 23, so it took me 7 mths total. And it was worth the wait. Good luck and Congrats on your decision... Keep us posted.
