      having problems with liquids so far blood sugar in low 100's thank you for the support pretty much on my own here


    4. Stevehud


      anything i can do to help, even if you just need to rant , just give a shout.


  16. my surgery date is the 20th. a lot of family know about my surgery but more concerned with problems that have been going on so they do not even think of the weight loss part of it. the biggest critic is my younger sis and she asked her dr. what he thought and he told her medical problems are the reason and weight loss the best results that shut her up good luck to you on this journey
  17. tuesday I go for some more test and wednesday is surgery so confused though not told only liquids or anything other just no blood thinners for 5 days or nothing to eat after 7 pm tuesday just kind of wonder if anyone else has gone through this the way i was told also wonder what new test they are looking for last week I had a lot more done
