    loosing slow... 40 lbs in 5 mos

    I'm 5'8" and started @ 275. Now 235. I will figure out how to update my profile. Really appreciate ur time in writing back and checking on me...thank u!!!
  3. Anyone had their estrogen levels fluctuate so much that hrt was needed? I feel like pms x 100 and am about 5 mos out. Thinking my estrogen level may be wacky from fat loss, but may fluctuate and just have to live with it. Anyone have experience with this?

    estrogen levels post op

    Thank you. I have an apt. Tuesday. Just nervous the estrogen will slow weight loss....already at a 6 week stall. Did they adjust yours after surgery? Is it hard to loose weight with hormone replacement ?
  5. Agree with above post by lessofmeismore. U aren't alone....lots of people on this site are great support. Hard to give advice without knowing more about ur relationship, but definately know u need to take care of yourself. Praying for u and wishing u the best. Please keep us updated. Best wishes.

    Staple pain

    Agree with above! U need to be on antibiotic immediately if it is infected. Please don't wait....can get serious fast if u let it go.

    Extreme Hair Loss

    Not sure if ur hair is strong enough, but u could consider extensions (semi permanent hair attached to ur own near root). Sounds like u r doing everything else possible. Also there is a shampoo for women to prevent hair loss, but I can't recall the name. U could check on line. Good luck! Everyone says its temporary.

    How Long Off Work For An Office Job?

    I took eleven days off and it wasn't enough, but my job is a little more demanding (physician). I had to cut back to two half days that first week. I wasn't in much pain but was very weak. @ 2 weeks post op I am fine! Good luck, I think everyone is different.

    Help! Does Anyone Actually Plan Meals?

    I agree w other comments. It comes down to having to make a list. It's a time committment! U can do it!
  12. No leak test. The swelling immediately post op can hide a leak anyway.

    Day 3 Post Op

    3 days post op for me. Had a lot of pain first nite but really no gas pain. Stayed in hospital for one nite. Still kinda hard to get in and out of bed. Tolerating liquids really well though. Have to keep reminding myself to drink slowly, but it didn't feel uncomfortable when I drank more/more often. Hope se all continue healing uneventfully!
  18. Lucky no gas pains ever! But it really hurts getting up from lying down and laying down. I've tried abdominal binder and support pillows. Any other ideas? Neither seems to make s difference!
  19. Had surgery yesterday, and doing pretty well today. Just got released from hospital. If anyone has any questions, feel free to write.... It's all fresh in my mind! Overall very smooth.
  20. Nervous and excited! Today was all liquids. Check in 6:30, surgery @ 9:30 am. Think good thoughts for me and if u are inclined please say a prayer! I will let u all know how I'm doing tomorrow! Thanks!

    Isopure- Liquid Protein

    I like grape, but wasn't too fond of other flavors. Better mixed w grape sf Gatoraid in my.opinion! It's really a personal taste. Good luck!
