    Pain, pain and more pain.

    The liquid diet is very uncomfortable & yes it feels like your Starving but your not however stick with the surface freejello even if you have to let it turn in to liquid but most of all keep drinking Water & take the meds they gave you , also if you can't stand the headache take liquid Motrin or Tylenol & either keep yourself busy with a hobby or a reading a book try not to watch TV because for me after my surgery I think the TV was torturing me with all the food commercials & We all go through that what did I do & is this going to be worth it so don't think your the only one . Also I'm glad my suggestion helped about the pillows , also just wait for the gas lol but I have heard to have gas x strips around that they help . Just for myself I had to have Imodium a.d. . All this is just suggestions but it is worth it when your clothes start feeling looser & you can be comfortable doing things you couldn't do & you will notice in a month or 2 maybe even a little more but just keep up what your surgeon/doctor recommended for you.

    Pain, pain and more pain.

    All I can do is suggest do what the Doctor told you & if you are uncomfortable sitting or lying down put as many pillows behind you that feel comfortable , also if you have a recliner sit or sleep in in it even with as many pillows for the first like 3 days but keep to the post op diet & take the medication as you need it . It will get better & maybe just take a few steps every 1/2 hr but it does get better. Good luck on your Journey . I'm not on here much anymore but I am 4 years out & I am so happy with my results & what I have been able to accomplish I am banded. Hopefully this helps.

    Hello everyone nice to see things turning around for the better for people . As I have been Mia I try to catch up every once in awhile ,leg is better , went back to work for 3 weeks until I couldn't take anymore of their B.S. so I unfortunately quit . On the other hand just been busy looking for other employment & with family. My second Son finally found work & my youngest is almost about to get his Diploma finally & took the couple test he needed to be excepted for the Army so after he gets his Diploma he may go into training so things are pretty good & got a Message from Alex saying Happy Birthday that was nice , I had gained then lost now I'm back at my steady weight , I don't think my body wants me to lose anymore but I will keep trying anyway lol . Even though My Surgeon is very happy with what I have done, I still want to be at my goal but it seems like this last 40 is taking forever . Well hope everyone has a great rest of the year lol & next year and so on.

    Just catching up going to see the Neurologists on the 22nd so they can try to figure out why I am not able to stand and walk and do my normal stuff I do at work went back to work for a week in August , went back to the Doctor amd they took me off again so I went back on Disability , I probably already had mentioned but my memory is So bad. But that still doesn't stop me from Dancing lol I just don't do some of the moves I was doing to keep up with the younger crowds lol. But I am trying to look for other work wear I can sit most of the time but I am also kind of afraid because I'm afraid if I'm sitting I will gain what I have worked to get off , I was doing SO good until all this pain came up on me , otherwise things are good with me and it sounds like things are getting on with everyone , sometimes I feel like I am failing then I'm like stop & think why and I do and I know why so I try to stay in my room as much as I can or if I have a few extra bucks then I go couponning lol and that can be from 2 hrs to almost 6 hrs yes it takes time but at least I don't have people asking me am I sure I don't want what they're having for dinner because my family eats a lot of fast food lately . My Mother lost 10 lbs she stopped drinking soda not as many sweets and goes to bed at a certain time every night so she's trying , I don't know what got in to her but it's hopeful & my oldest Son came by the other day hadn't seen him in a while but I texted him because he turned 33 on the 10th it was good to see him and it looked like he had lost some weight also since I seen him last.

    Wow a lot going on with everyone sorry to hear the sad news , but everyone try to stay positive & I forgot how to post pics so now I have to learn & remember how , but I am trying to catch up,like I said I will pop in every once in awhile . I still was dancing & doing Karoke , and having fun. However I haven't been on because I was really busy and started couponning because I was on Disability since March so had to cut down on a lot of stuff & spending a lot of time with family doing stuff for them. I was at work one night & my leg started hurting then it felt like it was on fire inside could barely walk coworker said go home stubborn me finished my shift went to get up to use the restroom ya I know TMI, but I fell & had to crawl & pulled myself up then got off the pot & stepped & fell again so I crawled back to my room & called into work then the Doctor , luckily got in that day. So like I said I was on Disability form March till the 1st of this month oh I forgot to mention that the Doctor did the cortisone shot in my knee in the bone also I have a little fluid in my knee but their not concerned with it. So I thought no problem I can dance,walk so I can go back to work. WELL after standing for 8 hrs even with my hour lunch break I was in excruciating pain & crying when I left work because it hurt so bad so back to the Doctor I went after a week working and back on Disability. Now I have to see a neurologist because their thinking it has something to do with my system my nerves. When I first went to my PCP for the pain to find out what was happening they told me I have athoritus all in my Left side & in my tendons, otherwise things are good except being off my feet & not moving like I was unfortunately I gained but I am having trouble getting it back off & I have tried what We usually say or suggest, so I'm not sure but I think my thyroid is acting up again so back on synthesis for a bit but I doubt I will have to stop ever taking it completely . So now you all know what had happened & what I'd happening with me so far, I will check in every once in awhile as right now a lot going on & I don't have the time I did because it's usually something with my Boy's or doing things for my Mother since I'm home now with them , they don't seem to miss me like they did when I'm working Lol because I know they miss me then because they will spend time with me & ask me to cook and tell me they miss my cooking lol. Like I said though now I have caught you all up.

    Wow I just got a E.mail from Wlsf and the Woman Zharan can't remember the spelling of her name but you know where her husband was a jerk but I got to meet at the convention a year ago , she is doing a follow up story tonight on whatever channel you watch My 600# life on , I guess she got PS. , she looks great. Also if you remember I have said I have Family members that have had WLS well I was noticing one of them that lost a lot , really has the apron hanging & it is Really noticeable , but she doesn't care & she is happy so good for her , but I don't know why her Surgeon or even her PCP won't & doesn't refer her because I can tell it's medically necessary , anyone that sees the can tell oh well just wanted everyone to know about the show tonight on my 600# life about Zhyazaran.

    @ Justwatchme better get everything checked , filled & tuned up before you don't have the insurance you have now & find out if your Lapband Surgeon takes your New insurance or if they can refer you to someone that does , hope you're not in to much pain from the accident & sounds like everything else may fall into place & there's a reason your ex is becoming a wasband.

    @ Gowalking you know We all backslide sometimes but you know what you have or should do. Every time I backslide even a little I guilt trip myself which is NOT good but in my mind I think wth are you doing , you paid a lot of money to lose weight & be able to do things so then I start either the 5 day pouch test or go back to the first 2 weeks of pre op, & it starts the scale moving again but I'm still not at my goal even after 3 years , but as long as I can fit & move around & my Surgeon & I am Happy with the results then , I know We can get to our goals & maintenance .

    Ugh not going to be able to get out & Go dancing or even just walking for about 3 week's unfortunately I just found out because my Left leg was on fire & hurting me , so OF COURSE I went to my PCP & She did X-rays & We found out I have athoritus all in my legv& on my tendons , might have fibromyalgia but we're not testing that yet , so now I'm having to apply for Disability & I already planned & got my tickets for vacation to Louisiana & Texas before this happened , but I'm still going my Boy's will help me , it will all be good.
