  1. Anyone from the Dayton Ohio area? My paperwork was submitted last week to insurance-hoping for surgery late August/early September.

    16 lbs in a week?! WOW! I lost 10 my first week. And I've been stuck on that same 10 since Tuesday, I'm getting frustrated. I know 10lbs is great in 11 days, but the scale hasn't moved in 5 days. Anyhow, congrats! We are planning to do measurements tomorrow. I put on a pair of sandals today that would not Velcro around my ankle before surgery! Amazing what losing 16 pounds will do!

    I had RNY and that's 16 pounds since surgery on September 8. I did not have a required liquid diet pre op.

    Woohoo! I finally had a BM! Not much but like others I haven't had much intake so no surprise it was little and took awhile????

    I have not had a bowel movement and it's been six days-I assume I should do a stool softener or has it taken everyone this long?

    I got home Thursday afternoon. Still pretty sore on my left side but not bad-it's worse when I am lying down or shifting to my side. The binder has been wonderful.

    I had surgery also Tuesday. Got home this afternoon. Each day has gotten better with the soreness. I find that it is worse at times now that I am moving around more. Trying to drink and get protein in-

    Thank you for all the words of encouragement and smiles! I am like you in that I am completely confident in my choice of surgery, hospital, surgeon and staff. Last week when my husband and I went to the pre op class sealed the deal for me. The staff was amazing! So attentive and helpful! The unknown of pain level, learning to eat again, and basic hospital things is the nervous part. Dr Brown told me at my last appointment with him that I have a wicked sense of humor. So glad he recognized that because that's how I will get through the next few days! I have a pretty high pain tolerance and had a total hysterectomy about 8 years ago (the big 8 inch scar is still there). I survived that so I am hoping this will be a little easier-a girl can wish anyway. My in laws are coming up later this week from Florida to "take care of me". Mom is a retired nurse so there was no keeping her away! They are wonderful and at least my husband can go to work without worrying I will get into something or do something while he's gone I will be in touch in a couple days. Off to the losers bench I go!!!

    Nervous wreck! This time tomorrow it will all be over! Surgery scheduled for 8:00am
  16. So happy to hear from you! Keep up the positive thoughts and the pain will subside. Glad to hear no nausea or vomiting, that's a positive sign. I am three days from surgery and getting very nervous!

    Going back to work?

    My doctor told me three weeks minimum. I see on here where others have gone back sooner.

    Caffeine

    I also learned that caffeine can block the absorption of iron in our vitamins. I too was told no for drinking soda and carbonation.
