    Amazing Arms?

    I was looking at some of those compression sleeves but I need one that would hook around my back or something...not just a sleeve. I can just picture the sleeve rolling down & my arms exploding out of my awfully tight sleeves, just like the Incredible Hulk!

    Amazing Arms?

    They are crap! That's my opinion lol. I am post op, but a male so I wouldn't obviously wear them lol. But I got them for two of my friends who are post op (got them from Boscovs, they sell the same ones there), and it was a disappointment. Hope you find something to make you feel more comfortable! Thank you rensterness....hoping someone will have some advice as to what perhaps they are wearing so I can try it. I'm just miserable & the worst part is that I could fit into the next size down in tops but my arms won't fit in the sleeves.
  4. Has anyone tried "Amazing Arms" from As seen on TV? I'm looking for something to wear under my short sleeved tops so that no one pukes after seeing the flappy part of under my arms. Most people call them "bat wings" but my left arm has a balloon looking piece of lard hanging which is disgusting me! Is there something anyone can recommend ~ what it is they're wearing & where it was purchased? I check out "Amazing Arms" from the As Seen On TV site & there is only 1 review & the person said the first time they went to wear it, the front clasp broke. Please advise as I'm desperate to hide my arms. I'm not even close to goal yet but holy cow, I'm so discouraged due to this arm thing! http://www.asseenontv.com/amazing-arms/detail.php?p=486216
  5. I went to Catherine's last weekend too & the sales clerk measured me (they are trained in measuring for Bra fittings) & I went from a 46DDD to a 42D by only losing 65 lbs. So I guess I know where most of my weight is coming off from! That's fine with me though, they were waaaaaaaay too big! Watch for sales or at least go shopping armed with the right size & maybe you can pick up a lesser expensive bra here & there. Not sure if Kohl's sells larger sized ones but I'm going to try. If not, I'll go back to Catherine's as they're having a Bra event going on right now.

    I'm 55 And Had My Sleeve Done On August 8

    For me, it really wasn't painful at all. I was expecting terrible pain but really, it was more painful having kids than this....this was nothing to me. They kept me comfy at the hospital & pain killers at home. I often wonder if I really needed the pain meds, but I just kept taking them at the appropriate time, even if I had no pain, but I didn't want to feel pain...so not sure if I would have if I had not taken the meds. The worst part for me was feeling nausea, & that was caused from the pain meds. Once I was given a prescription for anti nausea meds which I had to take prior to the pain meds, all was well in my world! Nothing hurt to eat or drink either. So I did accuse my doc of not actually performing that surgery on me! But just go slow with everything & pray. All will be well. Good luck to you!

    Cognition post VSG

    **Forgot to mention this yesterday** but when I tried to vote "NO" it came back to me saying that I must answer the 2nd portion of the question (negative or positive) but with a "NO" answer, there is no negative or positive outcome?? I think there is a glitch in your system, but I was happy to participate in your poll. Let me know if it's fixed because my answer would be "NO." I was brain dead before the surgery, sadly.
