    Gastric sleeve story

    Thank you for sharing your story. I went through a difficult time as well. Diagnosed with Fibro, depression, osteoarthritis, pre-diabetes, etc... I also went through a divorce moved 3 times and started a new job, all in less than two years. It was nothing I would wish on anyone. I gained a lot of weight, tried every diet I could think of...nothing helped. I started working with a NUT last year through my employer. With the support of my family and primary physician I was sleeved on 7/22/13. No regrets! I read stories like yours and I know this was a good decision for me. Congrats on your weight loss, and journey!

    I had a huge craving today for a Chipotle burrito! I drank my protein instead but it sure was hard not to pull in there and buy some burrito to puree! (I'm only a week out) I really wanted popcorn from the movies the other night...so hard to hear people crunching it:) Hang in there, we can do this!!

    I bought a small Ninja at Walmart for $20.00. It's awesome and was a great price! I use it all the time! My mom also has one that she loves!

    Poop talk - sorry if it's TMI

    Thanks everyone!! I'm thinking it's just part of the WLS process but what a yucky one! I'm still so early in the post-op stage, things will get better. One day at a time! Love this online support!!
  12. Looking for some advice, stories, or just someone to tell me that I'm normal. So, I'm 5 days post-op and having diarhhea. Three to 4 times a day. I know I'm not really eating much, just started pureed but I'm getting a little concerned that if it doesn't stop or cut back that I may end up dehydrated. I try the 30-30-30 rule, eat slow, and so on. I feel like no matter what I do my stomach is constantly grumbling. I don't have trouble getting fluids, food, or protein in, just worried about it all coming back out. I thought about Immodium but wanted to talk with my Dr. first. Have you gone through this? Anything help you?

    Any scuba divers out there?

    I live in Ohio, not a good diving place. I started diving a few years ago and love to dive the Flordia Keys while visiting family/freinds. We have pools and a few quarys around here to practice in but it's not the same. I'm just thinking with my weight changing keeping myself down might be an issue the first few times. I'm planning a trip to Key West later this year, maybe I'll just snorkel the first day out. Thanks everyone for the feedback! I'm going to keep looking into this
