  1. I haven't been on this app since I had my surgery June 2016. I'm coming back almost a year later begging for someone to talk to and know they are going through my same experiences ... I've lost 80 pounds since surgery but found myself at a stall. I'm not loosing and I feel like I'm failing miserably with my new stomach. I sill get full very quickly but i get hungry more often. I've caught myself falling into my old eating patterns and even drinking . In need help and advice , please .

    Alcohol

    I went out with my husband last night with the mindset of not drinking . Then before I know it I realized I had 4 glasses of wine . I'm almost 3 months post op .. I'm so mad at myself! I feel like I didn't care enough about my surgery and let the crowd get to me . It was almost like I left my brand new life style behind and started falling into my old habits. I feel ok besides the hangover but I'm scared I have jeopardized my weight loss. What is everyone's experience with alcohol after surgery ? Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Hello.. Anybody out there?

    Hi, I was in the same boat as you a couple of months ago ... My insurance through my provider specifically stated that any type of weight loss surgery or consultation is not covered... I even went to HR and asked why?! They said because of the cost .... I sat on my decisions for months. I even applied through a company called prosper for a loan to get the surgery and they wanted to charge me an interest of 30%... Anyways don't give up! A couple of months later I applied with a credit union and got approved at a much lower rate.. I went to Mexico for my surgery and it was the best decision I have ever made . I'm only two weeks out but my experience with Mexico was wonderful! Good luck and don't give up xox Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Weight loss progress ?

    Ugh that makes me feel better . I've watched over 20 YouTube videos and I think I drove myself a little crazy LOL. I kept hearing 12 -20 pounds the first week and I was starting to worry. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Eating a lot of broth

    She said because of the ingredients which shocked me because like I said every form and person I have followed as swore by premier. And it's honestly the only thing I could actually drink . They sent me the vitaleph brand which taste horribleeeeee. My hubby was thinking maybe the clinic and vitaleph have some sort of deal and that's why the clinic prompts them ?

    Eating a lot of broth

    Ah thanks ladies!!! I stocked up on premier Protein right before the surgery and my NUT told me in my last appointment that she doesn't recommend them because of the ingredients . I'm still debating ... Every post and person I have followed has swore by premier . I would prefer something pre made on the go... Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Eating a lot of broth

  19. Im 4 days post op and I haven't had a bowel movement , am I safe to take a stool softener ? Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
  20. You guys ........ My surgery is 9 days away. 9 days. I haven't lost any weight in 2 months. I did great the first month. Ate healthy, no alcohol, no smoking , and I only lost 3 pounds... A sad 3 pounds that most said was just Water weight ;( I got so discouraged and found myself eating all the crap I was eating before . I found myself cheating and slowing going back on all the progress I had done ... I was suppose to be on my 2 week pre op diet a week ago. And here I am +5 pounds from my overall Preop diet. I am so emotionally drained. If I can't do this and control my hunger now , how will I control it after surgery? Am I setting myself up for failures ? I'm getting my sleeve in Mexico and I have been emailing my progress via email... But it's now closer and closer to my surgery date and I'm feeling a total wreck. I have not read or seen anyone not loose weight on the pre op diet . Please advise ;( Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

  25. I'm stuck in the middle of self pay in the US and self pay in Mexico. I have done research on both options and I can't decide. I am scared to go out of the country and never see the same doctor again but the price difference is huge . Surgery here would be 16,500. Please help. What is your input or opinion?
