    Jessica, you made the right decision. You were brave enough to do this procedure so in my opinion your half way done because now, you cant go back. There is no other choice but to finish what you started because your dr. Cant return your belly back ????. Food will be always be there just not right now. Look at it like you are trying to figure your relationship with food and you need a time out from it . You need to focus on yourself not food. The most important thing here right now it is you on how this is going to change your life forever. You are getting liberated. Enjoy. I hope i make sense. Well, that is what i said to my self today and i feel better. Did you go for your follow up? Good luck

    November 18th anyone?

    The 18th. They kept me 2 days because the doctor that did the sleeve the first time only cut a little piece of the stomach and my magnesium levels were low . Well, it just happen that i am allergic to it so i got a Benadryl shot plus the pain and my blood pressure went down. Lol! I am feeling better now . The doctor said i cant have any protein after 2 weeks. No hunger pain yet! Just a lot of gas trapped in my left side.
