    Is It Harder After 40 For This Surgery?

    It could be gas pain. Maybe try the gas-x. I'm 42, surgery was May 7. I really didnt have any complications. Didnt have a drain, so I'm not sure how that feels. I can tell you, yes it does get better...just seems like it takes forever!! ugh! You do have to walk, but you also need to rest. Do what your body tells you!! Hope you are feeling better soon!!

    Butt Injections

    I know it's the opposite end of the body, but I had breast cancer, and wanted a double mastectomy before VSSG, and the surgeon told me it was best to wait, to go back and see him 6 months after....and oh boy i have pancak boobies!! lol (not for long)!!!!

    Anyone With Barretts Esophagus? Help!

    My grand father had barretts....becareful. Do ALOT of research on both. I would even talk to an oncologist, anybody I could get my hands on! Educate yourself. I myself had 3 diffferent cancers, and i'm 42. I dont want to scare you. Yes it's serious. Get your blood PH checked, and if it's off, start to alkalize your blood before you get too ill! Look into juicing, and getting healthy before any surgery. Start now by cutting out all processed foods, and sugar.

    Very Low Energy & Weak

    I was JUST going to post the same thing until I saw your post!!! I am just 7 weeks out, and my energy is sooooo bad, and my muscle tone is like jelly!! I am an EMT full time, came back 2 weeks ago, and I am afraid I am going to drop some one!! I just got finished washing my ambulance, and it took EVERY OUNCE of energy I had in me to do it! I hope we dont get a call, because i am shot right now....(I dont have to labs for a few weeks from now). My husband thinks im crazy, because I have always been strong. I've been doing this job for 13 years. I'm at the point where, i'm either going to have to quit, or I am going to be fired...

    Hitting The Beach

    Lady Ivy; your post reminds me of my job! I took 6 weeks off, and went back this past monday. I work ems full time, and its SO hard to stay hydrated, and eat. It's especially hard to wait the 30/30 when you're in a rush!!! ugh! Yesterday I had to grab an ER turkey sanwich, throw the bread awy. I was SO hungry, I ate too fast, and oh boy, I thought I was going to blow up!! Wont do that again.
