    Nothing I Eat Tastes Good

    I was sleeved 1/28 and I agree food does not taste as good as it did before.....

    Yes the pain and bloating go away as well as the lung pains when you take a deep breath. It's different for everyone, t took me 2-3 to feel "normal" again. As for the night sweats I would ask your dr about that.

    Just an update ;)

    I didn't have any issues in the hospital, but at 6days out I was right about where you are. I am at 2.5 months now and I still rarely feel hungry..... If it wasn't for my work schedule and my family eating dinner I could easily forget to eat anything at all. Everything starts to get better once you are on the semisolid phase. Congrats on your surgery and good luck!!

    6 months weight loss

    My Insurance only required a three month pre diet, and it didn't require me to lose any weight on the diet to qualify for the surgery. My insurance is independent blue cross.....

  15. Mine has gone away, I use 1% milk now to make my shakes no problem at all!!
  16. Remember liquids are easier then solids, so you can probably take more right now. I thought the same thing when I was on liquids, but now that I have some semi solids I eat an ounce or two and I am stuffed....

    Sleep study tonight

    I have been on my cpap machine since 2005, it takes a little while to get used to it but once you do, sleep is so much nicer. I rarely feel tied at all, it's easier to concentrate, and I feel better all around. My son thinks I look like darth vader though.....
