    You must be proud...

    Lol! That is what I look like in my winter coat! Everyone at work makes comments that it is too big but I don't want to buy a new one until next winter!
  12. If it continues I would call your primary care physician and have your thyroid checked.

    No WHEY Protein Powder

    Jay's Egg White protein powder. Chocolate taste really good. I got it at Vitamine Shop.
  14. Glad Flagyl works. It made me worse!! Labs always take longer than they said. On my chart at my allergist office it says gets c.diff just by looking at antibiotics! Lol! I get many sinus infections and now am treated by nebulized antibiotics.
  15. I have had c.diff quite a few times. I was told Iv Vanco will not cure c. diff that u have to take it orally. This is from my infectious disease doc but check with ur doc.

    5 weeks out problem!

    My doctor said that if u drink a lot of protein shakes it will cause diarrhea. I had to switch my whey shake to an egg white protein shake and then I was able to tolerate them better. The brand is called Jay's. It is also lactose free.
  17. I am six weeks out from sleeve surgery. I had a rough last week with esophageal spasms but I was put back on Nexium and carafate and they have stopped. I think I am suppose to get up to 600 calories a day. I can't get them in! I feel like I would have to add bad foods to get up to those calories. I eat protein first but then I have no room for anything else. Any help appreciated.

    I did that for dinner. Stretched it out for forty five minutes. Seems like I was able to eat more! Going to put my unflavored protein mix to my coffee tomorrow so hopefully I will get over 600 calories.

    Thanks ladies but I am not allowed to snack between meals and the protein shake would be considered a meal and they want me to try and get all of my protein from foods but I can add protein powder to my food if I need to. My protein powder does have some calories in it so maybe that is what I will do! Thanks for the ideas!

    The doctor said three meals a day.
  21. So I had to call the surgeon twice today due to Pain. It felt like something squeezing from my throat to my stomach. Had sleeve on Dec. 9th. He said was esophageal spasms. So I am back to liquids! Couldn't finish 4 oz's of soup for dinner! Anyone else have this problem? What can you do?

    December 2013 Sleevers Come In!

    Hi everyone! I am a pre-k teacher in an inner city district. I was sleeved Dec 9th. I went back to work right after New Years Eve. Well this week I got a new student and he is a e concerned handful! My problem is I am exhausted by the time I get out of work. I am getting about 48oz of water in, eating soft foods but don't tolerate as much as I am suppose to and get my B12, multi and iron in but can't seem to get my calcium with D in. Am I just this tired from the surgery still? Should I be concerned? Haven't even worked out since I went back to work!
  24. Hi all! Here are my stats so far. HW: 289 CW: 221
