    Showering with a Young Male Nurse in Mexico

    LOl! Probably the same poor male nurse they sent in to my room to put on my compression hose, right before surgery. Little tiny hose, nice giant thighs, and I had an IV in my arm and couldn't help much. So embarrassing. Wonder what they talk about when they go home?
  4. Also I wanted to say to DawnDenise, I don't think it's normal to bleed through your bandages, clothes and bedsheets from a hospital room. I hope that someone checks on you ASAP!

    Same as Roserie, Severe nausea, pain that started in the front and worked it's way around to my back. Doctor said I was full of stones. Oh, I had no warning, that was my one and only attack.

    7 months out and 125 lbs down!

    Your rockin that sleeve, good job!
  7. I'm cold all the time now. My husband says he can't sleep, because our bedroom is like a sauna! I remember last year at this time "pre-op", I was always HOT, kept a fan going in every room, and on my desk at work. My only advice is to keep a sweater/jacket with you at all times.

    No Drinking with Meals!

    It's true, you will get use to it. I'm nine months out, and if I forget and take a sip of water, my tummy will quickly remind me to stop. You don't want to get the slimes!

    alright tough guys - how long to recover?

    I had an easy recovery. Rested whenever I could. Went back to work on day ten, but could have gone back by day seven. Everyone is different. Better to take a few extra days that you don't need, than to not have enough and feel bad at work!

    Gall bladder?

    It really wasn't bad.I was able to leave the hospital four hrs after the surgery. It completely took away my appetite. Good news, I lost ten pounds in about a week and a half. My sleeve became a very picky eater for the first couple of months. Now between the small scars from VSG and gallbladder surgery, you can play connect the dots on my tummy.

  15. I take monthly B12 shots. It helps me when I feel a lack of energy. And yes, I'm always cold, unless I'm in the middle of a hot flash! Ugghh.

    Chinese food....yuck

    Love chinese. My sleeve could tolerate 2 pieces of sushi, and 1/4 cup hot and sour soup, around 10 weeks, If iremember correctly..Now I can eat more, but You have to eat slow, or you may get sick.

    18 mos out how much can you eat?

    7 months post op. It depends on what I'm eating. If it's on bread, "like a sandwich" I can only eat half. Any kind of meat is around 3 or 4 ounces. I love sushi, and max for me is 4 pieces. I can put down a good size salad, not sure of the weight, though.

    If you purchase non-refundable, at least 21days in advance, you should get the best fares. The closer to departure the more expensive the ticket. Some airlines will charge you extra for the best seats, the ones with the most room. It may be worth paying for.
