    A little confused

    Maybe you could be asked to be prescribed some ant-reflux medication? I still suffer with reflux 11 months out and it can sometimes make me vomit especially after I've been lying down I'm not on anti- reflux meds. Sent from my SM-N920P using the BariatricPal App

    Terrified at 23

    easy to say but try not to worry, the team performing your surgery and looking after you will be specialized in this area so are experts in what they do. having the sleeve was one of the best decisions I've made in my life, I wished I'd had it done years ago. good luck for your surgery

    contact your nurse or doctor straight away, I was told vomiting can put pressure on the stitches in your stomach so needs to be resolved straight away. Are you taking anti-reflux medication?

    PCOS hair and period issues

    I have PCOS and am 9 months post op, all my symptoms of PCOS have virtually disappeared as I've lost weight. I did go through a stage where I was losing a lot of hair a few months after my sleeve - due to elevated testosterone when you have PCOS I think hair loss is something we are more prone too, I upped my Protein intake and started to take Biotin and haven't had any problems since. hope this helps

    Loss of Motivation

    thanks for the advice guys, I must be suffering the 9 month itch! think I am going to do shakes for a week and try and get back into a routine again
  7. so I'm 9 months out, I felt like I had done really well and was happy with the weight I was losing, the last couple of months have not been so good I've only been losing a pound here and there and have been eating badly and doing no exercise, I've lost motivation! Has this happened to anybody else and what did you do to get back on track?

    intense depression

    @@crazyplantlady talk to your doctor or nurse if you are still having problems after eating you're still only 2 months out though, it does take some adjusting, I'm 9 months and I am still adjusting to my sleeve. I don't regret having it though, it was the best decision in my life, I hope things start to get better for you.

  12. having crazy lemon cravings

    1. Mountaingal


      Must be in the air. I had to go out and buy fresh lemons today as the cravings were so bad. Better lemons than french fried or chips or other evil things LOL

    2. Djmohr


      I was going to say, this is a great craving to have!

      lemon wedges with salt on. mmmmm.

  13. hi all, so I'm almost 7 weeks post op and have now reached the solid food stage, I can pretty much eat all 'normal' foods now. I haven't really been given much advice from my nutritionist/dietician regarding portion size etc other than to only eat 2 tablespoons - I've quit measuring food and have just been eating small meals (I use a baby bowl) for meal times. I'm just wondering do other people who are in the solid food stage of the VSG measure meals and is it two tablespoons? and what kind of things do you eat? I'm really scared of stretching my sleeve out! Thanks, Kate

    Vomiting every night

    I'm a sleever, but in my booklet the hospital give to me, they said if vomiting occurs go back to liquids for one day until your stomach settles and then gradually add solids back in. hope this helps
