  1. I feel the same way about the price. It's like I will do the pani but it's not going to look good unless you agree to the TT. I'm thinking I won't go with her regardless of what the others say. She is obviously in it for the money.
  2. I had the sleeve about 9 months ago and couldn't be happier, it has changed my life. My father is obese, has so many health conditions but just can't lose weight because of them all. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is any surgery that can be performed by someone with extensive medical conditions. Yes, I know he needs to get an answer from a medical professional. But I am asking because I would like to have a plan if there is at all a chance he could have it. I know he would immediately say no, but if I had facts and hope for him I think he would consider it. I would love for him to regain his life back as I have. Thanks for any replies.
  3. I am seeing 2 other plastics that week..lol
  4. I have been meaning to come and post for so long but hadn't had the time. I want anyone who is considering the Sleeve to stop worrying and just do it. I am almost 9 months out and have lost close to 130#. It's not an easy road by any means but when people say it's the best thing they have ever done for themselves, they mean it. I always thought they were nuts to say how much they loved their sleeve, but it's a life saver. I started at 278 pounds, 5'8" and just like most people I had tried everything in the book to lose weight. When you get to a certain point it's just so difficult and discouraging to stay on track. July 8th will be my 9 month and I am now at 157 pounds. My inital goal was 170, but now I keep changing my mind as the weight comes off. Right now I am loosing a little less than a pound a week. That's just fine by me! Thinking I would love to be 140 but I don't feel that's a realistic goal to maintain for the rest of my life. It was just a year ago that I had decided to look into weight loss surgery. I wanted the Lap Band and went into my surgeron with only that thought. I felt it wasn't permanent and I could remove it if I wanted. Well my mind was changed in 1 consult and honestly I am so glad he didn't go with what I wanted just to have the $$$. I know there are so many wonderful people on here to talk to, but if anyone has anything they would like to discuss with me, I am all ears. I wish more people had the opportunity to get this done and covered by their insurance. It changes your life!!!

    Stress = Stall

    So frustrating when you know you're not eating too much. I need to get back to the gym and get the scale moving. I want to be at goal by 6 months. Good luck!

  9. Sorry for the TMI.. I am 6 days post op and since night 2 I have had Water stools. Like I am peeing out my butt. (Sorry gross). Any advice?
  10. Is this normal? Doc paperwork says 101.5 should be concerning
  11. I am wondering how you were the first night. I am trying to figure out if my husband should bring the kids or wait until day 2. Any suggestions? My surgery is scheduled for noon.
  12. So I was wondering, while dripping in sweat from doing laundry, have you stopped sweating like a pig after you lost weight?

    Caffenated tea

    Okay does not caffeine mean none what so ever or can we drink regular tea? Aside from the typical, what brand do you like best, and flavor?
