  1. Several people in my support group have said they have experienced level 10 pain between 2 and 5 weeks after surgery. One friend remarked it was so painful that her husband had to help her in the bathroom and she had to take lots of pain medication! Others remarked that it had happened to them as well. They were told it was NORMAL! I am at the beginning of my 3rd week and dread this pain that might happen to me.... Have you experienced it? They say it is on the left side where most of the surgery took place.

    Muscle pain after surgery?

    I too have had horrible pain from that larger area and today is the 7th day. I do have a drain and understand that once that is removed, I will have less pain. I have a difficult time getting in and out of bed and up from my chairs. Lots of muscles so weak ! I continue to use a heating pad, a pillow close to my tummy helps when coughing. I do take some pain meds when I hurt too. No problems with strictures, ulcers, nausea, gas, drinking liquids or anything else! Everyone is truly so different! Happy to have a local support group that meets each month. ????

  6. Hi GUYS I have not had my gastric bypass yet but saw an item on their shelf at GNC that MAY help us as we lose hair. It is called VIVISCAL in a pink and white box. Under the title it has Hair Growth Program. Next it reads that is NOURISHES thinning hair and promotes existing hair growth* from within. 60 tablets Extra Strength Dietary Supplement PRICE is 49.99 but it is less right now~ Just sharing to see if anyone has heard of this or is someone has tried it....
  7. Our surgeon gave us little cards to hand to restaurants saying that we had WLS and would like to select items from the child size menu.
