    I love my Mirena! I gained alot of weight on birth control pills and can thank them for my four year old surprise baby. =) My Gyno recommended Mirena because of the fewer side effects. Next spring I'll be getting my second one.

    Then do share.... that's what the OP was asking for. From what I've learned on this forum the well know surgeons down there are very experienced and successful. Not everyone has the option ($) to have surgery in the US. Also please do not insult those who have a different opinion than yours. This does not make them "nuts."
    To the OP... do a search for this topic in the forums. There are many members who can give you first hand information about this experience.

    LA_dreamer got a reaction from Kiki74 in Getting Drainage Tube Removed   
    Not really sure if it was painful... I almost passed out, it made me very nauseated, I started shaking, and cried for a second. And I consider myself to be pretty tough. But I had not been prepared for it at all. Within a minute or two I was better. But I had to lay there and compose myself first.

    LA_dreamer got a reaction from Nick'sMom in Pureed Food   
    My first puree meal was tuna salad. It was sooo good after all those liquids. I also tried the roast beef hash I saw on the eggface website. It looks and smells aweful but I added a touch of BBQ and it was very good. Other than those I just threw whatever I cooked for my family in the mini processor.

    Ok so I was sleeved on 8/27 so I'm 4 weeks post-op. I am down 34 lbs and can tell it's really working it's way inward. For a while now it's hurt to prop my feet up on the couch and cross my ankles (bone on bone) and my wedding band is loose. I usually take a shower but last night I decided on a bath. As I was propping up my legs to shave I discovered a long lost body part!
    No... not that....
    I have a butt bone! LOL. I have lost a lot of my weight from this area and didn't realize just how much until I tilted back just a little in the tub and ouch! So I measured... I've lost 3 inches there!

    LA_dreamer reacted to Ms skinniness in Almost 11 Months Out And Struggling To Reach Goal   
    I read that you have 2 children that are under weight and that you have to have junk food in the house. Is your doc telling you that kids are under weight or is that your interpretation bc they are skinny? If the pediatrician saids that there too thin, then whey not give them a healthy snack like a Protein Drink for kids instead of junk food. Get them eating healthy now so that they don't develop bad eating habits that will cause them a lot of grief in their future. These are just my thoughts and I am not judging you in any way. I wish I would have done this when my children were small. I totally believe in healthy eating habits for life.

    LA_dreamer got a reaction from SleeveandRNYchica in Scared......i Don't Want To Leave My Kids Without A Mom!   
    I was the exact same! I am 29 and have a 4 year old. I cried for about a week over this. My surgeon asked me about being nervous... i told him not about the pain or nausea... I'm just worried about waking up. I told him if he just got me through surgery I could handle the recovery. I am a nurse and have worked in surgery. I know how rare death during a surgery like this is. But most mothers go through this. I am almost 4 weeks post op and laugh at myself for how I acted. I am sooo glad I did this.
