  1. Well I'm finally feeling like a person again. I was finally able to force myself to get the fluids in plus the Protein shakes. But has anyone else had problems with reg. (Skim milk 90 calories )? I have so I switched to powdered protein and cashew milk yesterday , but I think I forced myself to drink too much Fluid too fast and was up till 5am cleaning and exercising to get rid if gas pains in my left shoulder and indigestion . Ugh! Never do that again. So I've only sipped 8oz crystal light so far. And about to get on treadmill for about 15 mins then try the Protein powder and cashew unsweetened milk (25 calories ) and take tiny sips super slowy and see how it goes. Wish me luck! And good luck to you all.

    Itching all over body

    I think it's a great idea to check and see if it is kidney problems.

    Itching all over body

    I'm having the same problem. And did the same thing. Like changing sheets and even spraying down the bed , carpet and whole bedroom with bug spray thinking that something was biting me. But it wasnt. And I even have welts and rashes behind my ears, back of my neck and everything.

  8. This is an awesome story! I'm so happy for you! Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk
  9. You look so pretty! So do you. I posted this on Facebook as my weight loss journey and my niece posted that she was so happy for me she could just cry. It makes me think just how bad did I look to them. Lol! She said it was pretty bad when she called me. She said I just looked and acted as though I had just given up on life. So even though I had a really rough time after sur8, I guess this makes it all worthwhile. Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk

    7 days since surgery, very rocky start

    Sorry I haven't on here in a while. But here's a few of my after pics a couple of weeks ago. I haven't taken any since because I feel like I'm at stall right now so I joined a gym. So in a week or so I'll post new pics. Thanksgiving day. Sorry I haven't on here in a while. But here's a few of my after pics a couple of weeks ago.

Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk And these are clothes I couldn't wear because my muffin top was so big. But think I was around 279 here on last pics, but around 275 on Thanksgiving. But I have been around 272 and 268 lately ,that's why I gotta get on the ball my exercise . I had stopped for a while because I was so sick and had this acid reflux crap! Ugh! But I finally found something that actually helps and that's Nexium and instead of once I take it twice a day. Good luck on everyone's journey Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk

    Shoulder pain

    I was told it was trapped gas and to walk as much as possible and it did the trick. Even if I had to be on the treadmill while I was drinking my Protein shake . Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk
  16. I had surgery 11/11/15. I woke up with rapid heart rate. I took my blood pressure, it was 113/87 & 94pulse, then about 1/2 hour later while still lying down it was 118/76 P90. Anyone else have this problem? I went to see my surgeon 2 days ago for the extreme dizziness, it's been corrected now this! Please any guesses?

    Does anyone else get dizzy when they stand up? It's been happening to me a lot the last few days and super tired.

    I need food! 7 days post op

    @@bellabloom that's funt, because I had surgery 11/11 and I still have a lot of trouble getting in just 1 Protein shake and 1 meal a day. I'm m still struggling so, that now when I eat and it's really good and I want it, I just chew and spit it out cause I know it's going to be so hard to get it down and if it does it may not stay anyway. That way I won't overeat and I'll get at least some of the nutrients from the food. At least I hope so. Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk
  20. How much good should I be eating at 3 weeks out? I'm not sure at what to shoot for. I ate a small piece of grilled catfish and half of a boiled egg and couldn't finish it. Almost half of it left. And why does no one ever tell you these things?

    Rapid Pulse 3 weeks after surgery

    My first "pureed" food

    Same thing with me. I can't even drink anything for hours afterwards. That's why today, I'm starting with my Protein shakes and Water. And then later this evening if I get hungry I will attempt a meal. Because my nutritionist said it's more important to get fluids in than food at this point. So that's what I'm going to concentrate on today and see how it goes. Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk

    Why no liquids with food?

    That's true . I think if some of us had followed simple rules like this, we may not have needed the surgery to beg with, I know I don't think I would have. I also think it's a great idea to have the rest of the family follow some of our rules too, especially if they are or are prone to gaining weight. Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk
