    Hiatal hernia?

    I to did not know I had one when I went in for my surgical consult with my surgeon last Feb I was telling him how nauseated I always felt in the am and the pains I would get and I already had my gallbladder out so I knew it wasnt gall stone attacks it felt similar tho, so he rushed me over for an upper gi right after my appt and we found out I had a slight Hiatal Hernia that I didnt know I had, and he said he could fix it when he went in and did my VSG and it wouldnt be a problem!! and He was right! He was able to fix it and my surgery couldnt have gone better I am 2 months post op had surgery Nov 14 2012 and it was the best decision I could have ever made!

  4. Im not sure how I should feel about this but I kinda of feel annoyed by it, Im getting sick of hearing from some of them when they see how much I have lost in # of lbs that they better start busting there butts because I am going to pass them up... I guess I can take it as a compliment, but it gets annoying that I to am working my butt of here to shed the lbs and if I am doing what I am supposed to be doing to get the lbs to come off and I pass you up is not my fault. This is coming from some of my Non WLS friends who have been losing weight on their own for over a year and doing a wonderful job at it and I couldnt be happier for them, but I just dont like hearing them say well you are going to pass me up all the time. oh well guess I just needed to vent hehe!

    Weight loss and my non WLS friends...

    Thanks Cheri!! Yea yesterday I got to the point where I mentioned it bothering me and how I wished people would stop saying it and that I am only doing what I am supposed to be doing! so I think the comments might stop, at least I hope so, only the future can tell!

  18. Hey guys and gals.. I am 8 wks out and am experiencing middle level back pains Dont really know why. I went back to work about two wks ago could this be why I have been released from the doctor on full duty and am able to do all of my regular job functions. I have to lift tungsten/lead shielded canisters from about shoulder level to waste level a couple time a night. But nor more than 4 times a night. I work in a radio-pharmacy that makes radioactive drugs and the product has to be shielded with lead or tungsten we call them pigs hehe. but I dont think lifting them would hurt my back, Didnt before surgery.

    4 days out and having second thoughts

    I know its hard know sweetie, and it is true it does get easier, you really do need to take it day by day. and take it easy. and slow. Drink what you can drink and get in as much water as you can thats the most important thing you dont want to get dehydrated. it does get easier!
