    caligul got a reaction from candy32980 in Burning ..stabbing pain in stomach   
    @jhvonna09 the pain would come when I moved and it involved my abdominal muscles. .standing, sitting, laying, raising from bed, sudden movement, sneezing, coughing etc...after a couple of minutes it would go away. Week 5...I noticed the pain was subsiding...now that im on week 6...no more lower left abdominal pain.

    caligul got a reaction from maryann~arreola in 2 week liquid pre-op diet   
    I'LL be 7 days post op tomorrow. . And had to do the 2 week pre-op diet with Bariatric Advantage as well....it helped me to be on a eating schedule every 2/3 hours faithfully with the shakes..and adding fruit to them. I carried a cooler with me EVERYWHERE..bc I didn't want to be left with the temptation of a drive thru. It also helped me stay on track bc if ur liver is in the way. ..and I didn't shrink...my surgeon wasn't doing the surgery. And there was no way in hell I wanted to repeat the liquid diet.
    Good luck...once you pass 7 days. .it gets easier.

    LOL! I have to put inserts into all my closed shoes... I don't remember replacing my shoes pair by pair as I gained, but they surely don't fit now! I love my new skinny feet!

    the drain. had to go home with it. the bandage caused sores. I hated that drain and than when they pulled it out I yelped. man that thing hurt.
    having a bad back I was up and out of bed after surgery do to discomfort. a nurse came in and told me I needed to sit at the edge of the bed. np I said and as I was getting the bed in position she was holding her arms and hands in a cradle position to help me. when I told her I had already been out of bed a few dozen times she was horrified. made me giggle.

    My hubby thinks my tummy noises are funny to listen to......
    While at work, if the noises start and others are around and can hear it, I just tell them it's my new tummy (most folks with whom I work know about my surgery) and then apologize for the distraction. Most folks find it an interesting phenomenon.

    4 months out and still gurgling! Some times it just a little noise I can hear and other times it sounds like a bath tub draining. My kids get freaked out by it, but it is an every day occurrence for me. I just giggle it off and carry on.

    That's why I never said anything to anybody....
    When people asked me how did I loose so much weight, I simply tell them I eat like a normal person does, not a machine, not out to win eating contest.
    And what I do eat, I concentrate on healthy, high Protein foods.

    So apparently my husband is more excited than me about my 80lb weight loss. ... everytime I turn around he's picking me up and throwing me over his shoulders! !! Once upon a time I could use my weight when playing around with him. ... not anymore. ..I'm going to have to really do some major strength training!

    I too only met with my surgeon 2x prior to surgery, but was very comfortable. I'm 12 days post op RNY w/ acid reflux (which hasn't been an issue since surgery, I do still take prilosec. )

    I'm just the opposite. In the week pre op and the week after I lost 24 lbs. nothing sense. I'm almost 8 weeks out and nothing's happening.... Till yesterday. 2 lbs down yay. My dr says this is normal. As soon as I'm able to take in more calories I'll start losing. She was right.
    I'm so excited about 2 pounds.

    So today i took the kids school shopping. We were in old navy, when they were done I decided to venture over to the ladies section to check sizes out, to see If I would fit anything. I've NEVER been able to buy from the store, only online. I tried on a top in the biggest size I saw, XXL. It was too big! I bought an XL top, and a pencil skirt to go with it. I'm still elated over this experience!!

    For those of you that use Premier Protein, it is on sale at costco for $18.49 per case. That is a $5.00 savings. There is a limit of 2 cases.
    It is on sale through August 30. I got my share today, I may have to go back a couple more times before the 30th.
    Happy Shopping!
