    CommonVibe got a reaction from samsmom in Help....what Else To Do?   
    Ladies,
    I send you all the most sincerest thank you ever. You were all correct... I was badly dehydrated. I've spent the last 4 hours in urgi care getting rehydrated, meds for the nausea, and found out I have a UTI, due to me not passing urine or having enough Fluid. I have to return tomorrow for more IV fluid and IV antibiotics...
    You have no idea how much I APPRECIATE you all for your encouragement and caring..
    I feel better, more alive and with it. The nausea has subsided, and the prescription for the nausea med is in the pharmacy.
    I was at my lowest point when I asked for help, and I am so glad that I did.
    I am back home, going to lay down, I'm really sore after sitting up kinda in a uncomfortable position for so long, but grateful to have been treated.
    I thank you all, and know I am not out of the woods, but feel the best I have felt since the surgery.
    I will keep you posted, and I'm sending you all hugs tonight

    Thanks BlueOctober...
    My husband has been saying the same thing.
    I just really wanted to try to do it myself, but I see that's not working so well.

    Ok, 2nd day post op.....
    I feel so,so... My belly feels really bloated and sore, like I did too many crunches. I had grape juice/watered down before I left the hosp this morning. Not my drink of choice, so I got a Vitamin Water, one of my favorite drinks, and 8 hrs later I am still nursing it. I tried to drink some of the Unjury chick broth, but have only consumed less than half, and it taste pretty good also.
    I know its only day 2. I dont feel nausea, unless I drink say 2-3 swallows of something tooo fast I guess. Just a weird feeling. I also feel like I want to have a GOOD BURP, but it wont come :/
    Getting ready for my flight in the morning and back to real life..

    Here are some of the snide comments I have received and my answers to them:
    "STOP losing weight! You're getting too skinny!" "NO!!"
    "I guess I'm the fat friend in the group now." "You don't have to be any friend in the group now."
    "I can see your face now since all that blubber and chub is gone." "Stop paying so much attention to me. Good day."
    "I've lost X amount of pounds on my own." "Oh...really? Well I have a little Fairy Godmother who pops out and slaps food out of my hand. I guess I didn't do it on my own..."
    "WLS is the easy way out. " "It sure was! You jealous?"
    As you can see, I'm a bit sarcastic.

    Hi everyone,
    I was sleeved yesterday with Dr Alvarez, and all went well.
    I traveled alone, but met my sleeve buddy Tues., she and her husband.
    Rosie picked us up from San Antonio yesterday and we drove for abt. 2 and a half hrs to get to Eagle Pass. She checked us into our hotel room and we met her yesterday morning for the ride into Mexico. The ride into Mexico was all of 20 minutes of that. Safety was never a concern. There were no situations or movements that made me feel like what have I done.
    When we arrived to the hospital, I we were told we could choose who wanted to go first, and I was told because it was my birthday, the choice was mines to make. Soooo I went first, not because of the birthday, but I think I would have gotten more anxious sitting alone waiting for my buddy to come out. I was taken to my room after bloodwork and xray to change.
    Oh pre liquid diet I was 237, and when I weighed yesterday I was 226, so I totally feel like I should have cheated and had one slice of Dominican cake my best friend made for my Bday. But never having surgery before I wanted to follow the rules.
    Once changed, the nurse came to start my IV, and no sooner than she was finished the anesthesiologist was there and a stretcher was being wheeled around for me to get on. Last thing I remember was anesthesia saying to me as I was lying down, I'm going to give you something to relax you.....and relax it did, because next I woke up in the bed in my room. I must have gone in to surgery around 9:30 I want to say, when I awoke in the room it was abt. 3 pm. I remained without Water or ice until this am around 8. I have not felt hungry or any real pain. I refused pain meds this am, because I didn't have any pain, except for a coughing fit that I that would literally kill me. As I sit here writing, I am sucking on huge ice chips every 3-5 minutes, and they feel like they are making me hungry. Other than that I'm good, thank God.
    I work with doctors and several of them were very negative about me coning to Mexico to have this procedure done. I have to say this is the best choice I have made in years for myself. I have not felt scared or nervous during this trip, and even though I traveled alone, do not feel lonley with all the check in's from Dr Alvarez and his team. The doctors I work with could actually take a lesson from him.
    The hospital is super clean, and the room is like a mimi hotel room, very clean and comfortable. I dont require too much hands on, so it is perfect for me.
    Feel free to ask me anything in case ther is something I have forgotten...And please excuse any typos, as I've typed this on the Ipad...

    I'm gonna be sleeved on Sept 5th..... I would love to have a single incision, as I also have keloid skin. Where did you get your sleeve done? I didn't know you could request a single incision.... I will ask for this
