  1. So I thought I'd had heartburn for the past few months, but a recent scope revealed it is actually chemical gastritis. The doctor has prescribed medication to resolve the issue. Has anyone else had this issue? What was the outcome?

  3. I'm six weeks post OP, does anyone know when it's safe to drink from a straw?
  4. I wouldn't chance it. Call you doctor, better safe then sorry.

    3 days post surgery and vomiting....

    I was like that the first four days post op. They sent me home with anti-nausea medication it was so bad. Here was my regiment; take anti nausea medication wait 20 minutes take pain medicine, wait 20 more minutes then I could alternate popsicle, ice chip and sipping water. Hope this helps.

    Under 215 n bmi 36 anyone like this?

    I'm right there with you 5'2" 211 BMI 38. I was afraid of being denied as well but I have at least 3 comorbidities. Trust your surgeon he wouldn't put you all the prep work if he didn't believe you weren't an idea candidate.

    any protein shake ideas?

    I am still pre-op but I wanted to get a jump on my protein intake. I use frozen fruit and your favorite protein drink/shake, put in a blender and make a shake. No sweetener or yogurt required the frozen fruit makes it thick and sweet enough. On days that I don't think ill get to my protein goal I add a scoop of protein to the mix and I get at least 50 grams in one shot.
