    What Should I Pack?

    A extension cord for your phone charger outlets are never close enough to the bed. Phone charger your own shampoo and conditioner and extra britches incase your sutures leak. Buy a box of alcohol wipes smelling them helps with nausea
  4. Know how horrible it is watching people eat in Front of you. Thinking about going on it again with him but, im so sick of soup!!! At least I won't be starving this time around.

    Feel Like I Made A Mistake

    I agree they can give you zofran and even Valium for nausea. Stay away from all dairy for a week and see if that is what causing it. Lots of people can't handle dairy after this. I couldn't handle protein shakes I switched over to isopure sickly sweet so I diluted with water but, they don't make me gag or give me diarrhea. Prayers for you.

    You look great!!! Just had to let ya know!!!
  7. I have been very open with the fact I was having the wls but, now every time I see or talk to anyone within the first 5 minutes I get " the question" how much have you lost. It's very annoying just don't see why they can't say hey you look great and leave it.

    Major Complications !?!?

    I wouldn't say clots are major I ended up with 3 if you take care of them do what they say it's more of a maintenance issue.
  16. Nov 12 my husband starts his journey and I am so happy we are going to support each other and be role models for our family to be happy, healthy, and active.

    Lovenox Injections

    I think every dr is different. I only had to start them after I got my clot I use them and take Coumadin I will be on them for the next 5 months.

    Hubby Approved

    It's been up and down I had a few complications but, still would do it over again. He is ready he took his ore-op diet more serious than I did he's lost 35lbs in 3 months.
  20. Had the worst one today and my muscles are super crampy!!! I can't eat a banana or anything with potassium due to Coumadin and these stupid clots... Ugh!!! Grumpy momma!!

    Charlie Horse Omg!

    I will be on at least 6 months and anything high in vitamin k makes your blood thicker and makes the Coumadin less effective. So its not forever just a bit.
