    Two month follow up!

    I have Cigna and was approved just short of three days. My surgeons office knew exactly how to put my paperwork together though. They were just awesome.

    I read ( not sure if it is true ) that our stomach still makes the same amount of acid when our stomach is larger. So imagine all that acid in our little tummy now. Eek! Sounds gross. ????

    I had been nauseous for three weeks. Everything made me feel sick and I felt awful. Doctor put me on a prescription acid reducer medicine and it has been AMAZING! Apparently all that acid in my tummy was whirling around like a witches brew and now that it is settled a bit I feel so much better! Just a thought for some of you dealing with the nausea.

    January 2013 Sleevers?

    Hi everyone! Had my one month post-op appt today. It is also the very first time I stepped on a scale since surgery as well. Including the 6 pounds I lost on my liquid diet the week prior to surgery, I lost a total of 31 pounds!! The Dr. was very happy with my progress and thinks all is going well so I don't have to see him for another 2 months. I was absolutely floored to lose that kind of weight!! I have been a bit nauseous so they told me to start a probiotic to help even out all that is going on in my tummy. I have been struggling with the Protein so they told me about some protein shots to get at The Vitamin Shoppe to help me increase my intake. I was also able to purchase some great chewable vitamins and some sample protein packs. I have attached a few one month photos. I can finally see a difference!

    Rude orange man! off topic

    I would have to.d him that my pale skin will have me looking younger instead of older like he looks. Haha!
  8. I am only a month post-op and it really is very emotional. You won't only be shedding weight, but shedding some mental and emotional hurdles. I have had a fairly easy recovery physically but the tears flow pretty easily for me now. I think it is just the entire process. Sometimes easy and sometimes overwhelming. It will all be worth it in the end. Good luck!

    So gross...

    Tomato soup made me really sick too. ???? I had a few bites of baked potato with chili tonight and ended up throwing it up. I know your pain. I was sleeved 1/28/13. I have been perfectly fine until the last few days. Everything is making me sick and even the smell of food is making me want to barf. I'm a little frustrated! I hope you feel better quickly. I know it is an awful feeling.
