    Annoying Crap That Your Partner Does!

    Sorry girls. I scored a good one. He loves laundry, cleans after I cook, does the litter box, and even scrubs the bathroom. It's a trade off. I do the bills!
  3. Excellent. Keep going. And give yourself a big hug!

    Pain In Chest

    Yes. On day22 and still can't get a good grip on drinking amounts.
  6. What kind or brand of protein is everybody using. I can't do the Atkins anymore. Bought a raw protein but it is too grimy and pasty for my stomach. Well it actually doesn't get that far I throw up before I swallow.
  7. Ok. Well I made it 20 days and I am having another bout w nausea so in fighting dehydration again. I'm still on liquids till Nov 2nd. My stomach does not like anything. All the protein mixes I used earlier refuse to stay down. Tried a powder but my taste buds and stomach refused no matter how I disguised it. The band is causing me lots of pain. Guess its time to call the doctor. Of course my doctor is not as nice as some of yours are. Ok that's it I will stop whining ! Just wanted to share

    October 2012 Bandsters

    Until the minute they gave me the anesthesia I was nervous. And then after I thought WTH did I do. But now I'm 25lbs down on day 16. I still hate the band but I'm felling great about the operation.

    5 Days Post-Op

    I don't think I really drank all eight bottles of water like my doc said. I just drank as much as I could...and each day I was able to increase. Lots of Popsicles. Bought myself a Ninja Pulse at target. Now everything can be a liquid. I'm on day 16 and must stay on liquids till Nov2.

    Crushing Pills...

    My dr said I had to crush for five weeks. Some of my meds taste horrible so I cut them in half or fourths My time released I cut and take half now and the rest later in the day. Last week I got one of the little red Sudefeds stuck!!! Had to drink lots of water to dissolve it. Now I even cut those.
  15. David, I hope for everyone the band is not the cause, maybe it's just what brought pre-existing conditions to your attention. I wish u luck. Stay positive. And congrats on the GPA.

    Gallbladder Surgery

    What are the symptoms of gallbladder issues.
  17. In Houston Texas by dr Wilkenfeld.
  18. In still on liquid/soups. This is day 13! I got creative. Bought Carraba's chicken soup asked them to hold the pasta. Took it home blinded it. Hmmm. Had plenty to divide into 6 one ounce portions.
  19. I'm not there yet but I got a Sudefed stuck over the weekend. It hurt. Like u said. So I will make sure I chew the chips. Kettle chips are my favorite.
  20. Well things are much improved I'm glad I took the extra days off. Still have pain on the left side and I am very swollen still. But I am still alive!! Lots of gas. I finally slept all night. My first post op is today.
  21. Day six. I don't know if I'm having spasms ,, I'm hungry, in pain , have gas, or what. But under my ribs it hurts. It's only been six days so should I be hungry. What can I eat. And I have more nausea now than before. And yes I'm walking , started using a straw. What's wrong. I get heavy. Chills for no reason. And I think I'm getting dehydrated Any ideas how to stop the pain. Or what it is

    I Just Dont Know

    Thanks. I will skip the straw. My information says i can start soups that are blended on wk2. So two more days. I will push more liquid. It just makes me burp more. So I'll walk more
