    Has anyone been having excessive discharge post-op? Not an excessive amount but just frequently. I notice it on a daily basis. No offensive odor or anything, just happening regularly...
  2. Thank you JoJo! I am seriously working on a business plan to do just that, but wanted to test my market first :-). I have had a few people tell me the same thing, adn to be honest, for a while, I felt like a "failure" - being and RD and having to have the surgery. But it was a very dear friend of mine who is also a RNY patient who pointed out that I would be a gret resource. And then my wheels started turning lol...
  3. Good Afternoon All - I have a "research" question for you...if you had the opportunity to work with a health coach who is a Registered Dietitian and a sleeve patient in order to walk you through the pre-during-and post-op process, would you?
  4. It's been 12 weeks today since my surgery and I've lost 44 lbs. Very happy about that. But I'm just frustrated today. I'm tired of Protein. Tired of only being able to eat 1/4 c at a time. Have lost muscle mass because I can only eat so much and drink so many Protein shakes. Am I sorry that I got the sleeve? NO, but sometimes the adaptation is a challenge. Thanks for letting me vent!

    Quest Bars?

    Maybe I need to give them another chance. I tried the apple pie one and couldn't stomach it. I even heated it up in the microwave for a few seconds, but no luck...

    August Sleevers?! Where Ya's At?

    Hey My Fellow August Sleevers...just checkin in to see how everyone is doing, esp. my August 28th sleevers. How are you feeling? How much are you able to eat now? Exercise? Any issues? All is pretty good with me. Down a total of 38lbs from my pre-op weight. I think I'm slowing down a bit, but not stressed about it. Finally go to my 60 grams of protein just last week, but still only at about 40oz of fluid a day, but hey, I'm a work in progress lol! Started working our wiht my personal trainer last week, and whew! I am out of shape!! I'm sore as I don't know what, but in a good way. I'm determined to gain back some of this muscle that I'm sure I've lost. Hope everyone is doing well!

    I would like the support group info as well. Thanks.
  12. I am almost 7 weeks out and am struggling with this as well. It's almost as though I know I can only eat so much, so I'm trying to pack as much in as I can. And I pay every time. I have a constant feeling of something being "stuck" in the middle of my chest. So I am working consciously on slowing down at each meal...the discomfort/pain is just not worth it.
