    proctor67 got a reaction from TakeCareGirl in December 11th I'm being reborn to the rest of my life!   
    I'm ready for the operation on Tuesday morning. I have bought Unjury chicken Soup, chldrens muti Vitamins, gasx strips premier choclate drink, unjury no flavor Protein, chapstick, clcium citrate chews, and Iron wafers. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Im 90 percent excited and 10 percent anxious and nervous. This has been a nine month process to get here. My heaviest has been 420 and three days before I'm 377. My doctor has me on Atkins startup diet. meat eggs and cheese with less than 40 carbs, less than 5g sugar. I'm going to go liquid sunday and monday on my own to get all solids out of my system. If anyone has suggestions please give your input... I will write about the eexperience after surgery. I'm in Greenville NC, DR Nazeri,

    proctor67 reacted to scorpion509 in Hunger Hasn't Gone Away...why?   
    Is that a stomach hunger or head hunger? because Base on my experience ( but I am only 2 weeks post op) I am not hungry by stomach. I can be without food for at least 3 hours untill I will feel something that I am a bit hungry. But I am hungry with my head. my kids eating potatoes I want potatoes. but when I only tried on tea spoon my stomach decided that I try to poison him. and I feel very bad. it cannot handle that small amount and I was sure that I have a revolution inside my stomach. How often he eat? and what is the amount. because for me to eat my 650 cal I am eating every 2-3 hours. breakfast-> shake-> lunch->shake->dinner and trying to push down Water in between, but again I am only start puree stage today so it was all liquid.
    another thing body need time to adjust to new weight. he might notice that weight is the same but sizes are different. so Please tell him don't be discourage. I am another person who weight myself every morning, but not to be freaking out just to understand what I ate what might make my weight changes stop. AND 60 lbs for 1 months - terrific progress .

    proctor67 got a reaction from lovealways in Had Endoscopy On Friday   
    For anyone scared of an Endoscopy pease don't be scared. You will get admitted have an IV and BP cuff put on and a blood oxygen light on your finger. They will take you to the room have you lay on your side and they gave me verdal one injection and then a second injection. I do not remember the second. I woke up in my room with them taking the IV and heart leads off. I got really hot for like 15 minutes and they gave me some Water. I left the hospital, got home walked inside unassisted and slept until 100 pm. It was the best sleep i've had in years.
    I was admitted at 630am and was home by 900 am.
    The disturbing thing was there was two biopsys taken and he informed me I had reflux. I do not think I ve ever had indigestion in my life.
    Waiting for results and path forward. Throat is a little scratchy today (Sat).
    Hope this helps
