    I am losing very slowly . I had my surgery 8/5 . lost 9 pds pre op and 16 after. so i'm down 25 pds . But, I still feel a lot better that being 25 pds heavier. I know I eat more than I should and sometimes the wrong things. I try to make better choices everyday.

    In the hosp did they give you any Soup or tuna fish? They made us eat some before we are let out. Ist day out they said try tuna, egg sald scrambled eggs , ricotta cheese, avocado, anything you can mush. I mushed up with a fork , chicken gyro, Soups from Panera with pieces of chicken that you chew and chew till is is mushed. The best thing I had second day out was 2 tablespoons of mashed potatoes tiny bit of gravy and some mushed chicken in it. went down smooth. peanut butter.. all of this is protein!! Good luck and try some you will feel better! As my doc says if you could mush it you could eat it!!

    I'm on day 5 and just went out today to a shoe store for an hr. Havent used any meds today. You will feel crappy for another day or so then you will feel much better. Today I was able to drink Water with no problems. When I did have problems what helped was warm broth . warm tea or warm anything. it will help heal the swelling and comforting to drink . Feel better!!

    I went into Mercy hospital Rockville center long island on Monday 8/5th . They took me set me up in a bed and waited. Was a little nervous. Saw the one who knocks me out saw the dr. Ready to roll. Woke up in pain. They gave me a button to press that releases medicine (morphine) and while still half out I heard them say how many times did she press the button within 1 hr. I heard the lady say 18. 18?? Don't you think you should give her more if she pressed it 18 times. They did and finally much better. 2 hours later they put me in a room with a nurse who made no conversation. She put on the leg compressors and left me for a few hrs. When a new nurse came in she said the compressors were not working and as long as I was up and walking it wasn't a big deal. Well she never got me up to walk. So then I was nervous. I was dizzy and nauseous . The nice nurse dawn gave me a cool towel on my face brought me new compressors and finally let me go to the bathroom. The bad nurse suszan forgot to put the measure thing in to measure the pee . At 7pm I asked when do we get the blue thing to blow into she said you should have gotten that at ck in . Like it was my fault . She didn't notice I didn't have it all day!!.My phone was broken as well as the tv. My pole of saline was beeping all night long and the fire alarm was going off outside my room. Of course the doors closed as I was taking my walk and got locked in the hallway. I couldn't get back to my room because of the alarms . I had to find a nurse with a key.. To top this all off with across the street were 100 Irish bag pipe players who were playing that river dance music for 3 hours !! It just wouldn't end. I was soo annoyed. They fixed my tv 15 min before I left and wanted me to pay for it . I wouldn't go there again in you paid me. The best part is that my band is out and my sleeve in . The dr did a great job but next time ill pick the hosp 5 min from my house. I went 1 hr away because the Dr.s office said they had the best set up and really wonderful and caring nurses. WOW!

    thats really interesting > I am wondering if that is how im going to feel. I haven't told anyone except my husband and kids. I told everyone else I am going on a medifast diet.When I had the band I didn't tell anyone and it didn't work for me. I am afraid the sleeve wont work so I haven't told anyone because they will watch everything too. I go in tomorrow for the sleeve!
