    Advice Needed: Weight Loss Breakup

    I think he is scared to lose you after the weight loss. Men dont communicate the right way they say the stupid-est things sometimes. All men are scared to lose their women escpecially if she is going through a major change. He may think "once she lose weight she will no longer be interested me and develop this big ego" I am only 11 days post op and lost 19 lbs already and my husband will say things out of no where.. Like dont change who you are I loved you for 13years and dont want you to become hollywood on me or yesterday when we went out he got a little jealous because guys look at me. (little does he know they look w/ him there or not) LOL If you want the relationship to work and you really love him sit down and pour out your feelings then let him pour his out and then determine if you want that relationship or if you want to discover who you are becoming and start a new relationship once you are ready.... Good Luck Honey!

    Omg - Dumping Sucks Big Time

    I know exactly what you mean. I never knew with the sleeve dumping occured. I am so glad I experienced it because I was a sweet eater and now I can't sugar or sugar products... Good luck and try sugar free products and water down any flavored drinks you are going to have it helps a lot....

    Today I seen my surgeon today! The first thing he said is omg look how skinny you are getting...(all smiles) He then ask me if I can be a spokes person during his seminars and he also asked me to take pics today so I can be the first african american in his demo video. I am so excited...He said my incisions are barely visable and that is so cool, he never seen anything like that. Today built my self esteem so much... I am thankful for all the love and support I am receiving! And I thank God for all his blessings.....

    Otc Pain Meds? Pills?

    If you had gallbladder surgery it is the same exact thing. I had my removed in 2003 and it felt the same exact way and my surgeon used the same incisions. There you go now you know what to expect..you already experience a surgery that was similar. Good luck and wish you well to a quick recovery!

    Otc Pain Meds? Pills?

    I had surgery Nov 6, 2012. If you had foot surgery and did not need pills you wont need any for this surgery. If you walk and get up and down keep stretching those ab muscles you will be fine. On the 4th day after surgery I was walking my son to the bus stop and cleaning my house...

    Who's Eating Pureed Foods Already?

    I tried it today. I could not wait to try food but it is all not cracked up to what it used to be.... Applesauce made me throw up and mash potatoes felt like it was stuck in chest. I had to lay down and actually fell asleep and woke up feeling better... Take your time and don't be surpised that after 1 spoonful you may be full....

    Otc Pain Meds? Pills?

    Patch For Nausea?

    I had the patch and all the medications. From my experience nothing helped. I vomitted the first 2 days. I asked them to take me off the pain meds and that helped out alot. The nurses kept pressing the pain pump button and I was not in pain. They said it put me to sleep and out of the discomfort of throwing up... Everyone is different you may not having any epsiodes at all!
