    Hematoma at site of port removal

    The incision by my hematoma opened up and drained for three weeks. Fortunately, the incision healed well.

    Honey and Greek Yogurt

    I use a little agave in plain greek yogurt. A little goes a long way.
  4. Hi Janet... my story sounds a lot like yours. I lost 30 pounds total with the band and regained what I had lost. I went to a new doctor last January who suggested I have the band removed. A lot people have little to no weight loss and many complications. I suffered with acid reflux for two years before I had revision surgery. I am so much happier with the sleeve. If your doctor is resistant to a revision try getting another opinion. I am so glad I did!

    Pumpkin recipes

    I bought a box of pumpkin coffee K-cups from Dunkin Donuts. We have a Keurig coffee maker at work. I thought it would be nice to have a pumpkin latte once in a while.

    Evening Primrose Oil

    I was just found out that I have low thyroid. How much EPO do you take a day? Do you also take medication?

    Dessert Alternatives?

    My favorite guilt free desert is Jello Mousse Temptations with a dab of Cool Whip Free on top. It's perfect size when I need a chocolate fix!

  10. First, I would like to try ziplining in the White Mountains during fall foliage! Second, I would like to take a mule trail ride in the Grand Canyon. If I survive both, I will think of more adventures!
  11. When I had the lapband, I had terrible heartburn and took a ppi everyday but it didn't give me much relief. After the Sleeve surgery and 45 pounds lost, I don't have heartburn. I am still taking a ppi but my doctor will start reducing my dosage and hopefully, I won't need it anymore. I had considered having a Bypass instead of the Seeve as I was told it would eliminate my heartburn all together. I am so glad I opted for the Sleeve.
  12. Great idea to have a second picture taken at the same place! You look wonderful... congratulations!
