    Dumb question:

    I use a straw all the time and it hasn't bothered me . I had surgery 18 months ago and I'm maintaining a 100 pound weight loss.

    Sleeve at a 36.6 BMI

    My BMI was 35 when I had my surgery. I weighed 230 and I'm 5'8. I was about a size 16/18. I lost 23 pounds my first month and each month after that I lost around 10 pounds. I reached my goal in ten months. I weigh 130 and my BMI is 20. I am below my goal weight and have maintained this weight for seven months. I know everyone is different but maybe you will be one of the lucky ones and will lose quickly . The most important thing to me was not how quickly I lost weight just that I had a steady weight loss. Watching the scale move downward each week is the best feeling in the world !!!

    Hundred pound weight loss

    So happy for you...what an amazing transformation !!
  7. I never had acid reflux but I started having symptoms immediately after my surgery. I take prescription Prilosec every morning. If I didn't I would be miserable and I'm one year out from surgery.

    5'9 women what was your goal weight?

    I'm 5'8 and my goal weight was 138. I currently go back and forth between 133-135. I am trying to maintain. I don't want to lose anymore weight. I am a size 4 or 6 depending on the cut and style of pants .

    Losing weight ?

    I felt the same way. February 15 will be one year for me!!I I started out weighing 230 pounds. I have lost 95 pounds. I reached my goal of 138 in ten months and now I'm a couple of pounds under goal at 135. You will lose weight and just imagine what you will be posting a year from now!!! Good luck to you.

    Teachers and Time Off

    I had mine during our February break. Surgery was on Saturday. Flew home Tuesday and went back to work Monday. I was really tired those first few days back. I teach second grade so I couldn't really do much teaching those first couple of days. I hate to admit it but I just gave mostly busy work and tried to take it easy. I didn't tell anyone about my surgery so that's why I didn't take any time off.
  15. The day I had surgery I weighed 230 and I am close to 5"8. You know the crazy thing is that a year before my surgery my highest weight was 215 and I had taken diet pills and had gotten down to 167. Look at how much weight I gained back over a years time plus even more. When I decided to have this surgery I began to eat all the time because I kept telling myself that I would never be able to eat like that again . I stopped weighing myself so I had no idea I weighed 230. I had never weighed that much in my whole life . I decided to have surgery bc I was sick of losing and gaining and losing and gaining. My surgery was in February 15, 2014 and I have lost 92 pounds. I weigh 138 which was exactly my goal weight. It has taken me 10 months . I thank god everyday for this surgery and wouldn't change a thing. By the way I can eat whatever I want just much smaller amounts so I never feel deprived. I didn't do this to be miserable and feel like I was on some crazy diet . I went to Mexico and I used Dr. Quinones and he was wonderful . Good luck to you!!!

    5'10" - 550lbs / Dr. Quinones

    By the way , I went alone to Tijuana and never felt scared or threatened in any way. My husband was totally against this at first but we have two daughters and he had to stay with them. I didn't tell any family members about my surgery so I ended up going alone . I did my research and made the right decision for me .

    Looking for support

    I went to Mexico by myself and everything went just fine. I was very well taken care of and there was absolutely nothing to be scared of. I had a different doctor but I have heard really good things about your doctor as well. Don't worry you'll do great .
  21. I am having surgery with Dr. Sergio Quinones February 15, 2014 and would love to hear what you thought about him and the hospital (Santé Fe Medical Center). I am excited and nervous!!
  22. I had decided to have my surgery with Dr. Quionnes in February. Now I realize that he gives epidurals and you have a catheter. I'm not sure what to do know because I have gotten extremely sick (violently vomiting) after I have had an epidural. I also have lower back problems and my pcp said that this could aggravate my problem and make it worse. The catheter thing...well I just hate catheters, Anyway I need advice. I am ready to choose another doctor now and I don't know if I am making a big deal out of nothing or not. Should I just suck it up and deal with it? Do other doctors use epidurals and catheters? Please help!
