    Sinus Issues

    Wow.. this is so funny... I have been telling my husband that I do not know what in around my insision area that would be connected to my sinuses but something seems to be out of wack!!! LOL...Since my surgery I sneeze all the time and have to blow my nose all the time... I have been taking Zyrtec twice a day per my primary doctors suggestion....however, I went to the pharmacy yesterday and picked up some liquid childrens Benadryl and that seems to help. But I don't want to be dependent on it.. I hope some of the "Older Sleevers" can tell us if they had the same issues and can hopefully tell us when this will end.

    At 8 Weeks What Were You Eating?

    I am right at 8 weeks and I eat pretty much what I want... just in a lot smaller portion than I used to... don't get me wrong.. no junk food.. but I try to stay with no fry and a lot less carbs... just make sure you chew really well...that is the most important part..and not to fast... hope this helps.

    Terrified Of Anaesthesia!

    You will be fine.. I too was terrified... I had never been put to sleep either.. and had a fear of waking up during and not being able to tell them I was awake and feeling everything.. I told everyone around me who would listen..LOL..so when they came in to get me ready for the OR.. they gave me a "Margarita" as they called it.. thought this is nothing.. don't feel a thing... got to the OR..moved over to the "teeny tiny" table.. I remember one nurse loosely strapping down one arm as the other said.. "OK,..here is your second Margarita".. that was all I remember.. they really had me under.. took 2 hours to get me awake!!! But was the best sleep I have had in a long time.. so just think about the great sleep you are going to have!!!

    What's Unique About Being A 50S Sleever?

    I too decided to have surgery now because of medical mostly.. and physical so I could keep up with my grandchildren along with having fun again and not worrying if I can fit in a seat somewhere....I will be in 52 in Nov.. and hope to be at a major milestone by then.. for those of you who have not had your surgery yet.. I will tell you that the day I went in the hospital I was a diabetic taking 4 pills a day and was taking a water pill to relieve the swelling in my legs.. I had my sleeve surgery on April 9th and on April 11th when I left the hospital.. I have not taken any more diabetic meds or water pill.. I have seen my primary doctor and he is thrilled to say the least.. Heck.. I am thrilled... so the weight I am going to be loosing is just icing on the cake.. so hang in there and I just know all of you will be thrilled too.. Monday will be 7 weeks and I am down 47 lbs... my next "hump" that I am going for is my CPAP machine!! I want it gone!! So hanging in there until then!!

    Lunch Meat On Soft Diet?

    I had my surgery on 4/9/12. I went back to work on 5/7/12. I got Sara Lee low sodium deli turkey sliced thin (wanted Jenny O but our Walmart no longer carries it). I also got light Laughing Cow cheese...different flavores. For my lunch I bring 2.5 oz of turkey and 1-2 wedges of cheese. I spread the cheese on the turkey and roll it up and it is very delicious and I am getting my protein in. It is very easy to chew and I even got the buffalo style and had no problems with it. Hope this helps.
