    KristenLe got a reaction from Frustr8 in Help am I Eating to much   
    @@westonmark It's not likely you will stretch your stomach - especially on full liquids. They move through your sleeve quickly. I would be sure to measure your food and only eat the suggested portion size. I am not sure what that is with full liquids but your paperwork should say so. I am on mushy foods and am allowed 1-2ozs every 2.5-3 hrs. I think you can have more full liquids.

    Ask them for their late policy! I work in Medical Adminstration and I would be livid if someone was turned away because they were 5 mins late.

    @@BJames42613 I would assume that extensions will cause more damage. I would look into a different option. If you don't like the topper as @@Bufflehead suggested - maybe a new cute cut would help. Do others notice it as much as you do??

    @@Dub I second the Tumeric advise. Also - Tart Black Cherry juice (come in pills too) has been known to work on inflammation. Do you wear a knee support band? That may help.

    @@blondie88 Did they discuss removing your gallbladder? If it is your gallbladder - you are at the acute stage and it needs to be removed. You may have also developed pancreatitis. Go to the hospital and don't leave until you get answers. It's dangerous to let this continue. Please let us know how you are doing.

    Your PCP probably needs to request a referral through the insurance. Call Member Services for your plan and get exact details of what's needed. BTW - your Surgeon's office should have been more specific and more helpful!

    50 lbs in 3 months is excellent!! If you are staying with your plan (protein, Water, exercise) it'll come off. A lb a week is better than nothing - or a gain.

    Please remove my account as well from both the forum and the Store. I do not want to be part of a site such as this. It's all about making $ for you and your surgeons.

    @@KittyCathy22 I don't know how much you have to lose - but I'm assuming you were obese and that's why you had WLS. There are significant complications and health problems that go along with being obese. WLS is a huge step and scary to everyone - especially someone who has just started their adult life. Please know that it will get easier! Your life will be so so much better being a healthy weight. Think about all of the things you will be able to do - including have children and even grandchildren - and enjoy the time you spend with them. I'm 25 years older than you - and I feel like that time has been wasted. I never had children - and could not enjoy much of the last 25 years because of my weight. None of us know what life has in store for us in the future - so take a deep breath and just have fun!!!
    Sending you a big hug!!!

    KristenLe got a reaction from Missy161 in I'm I really hungry?   
    Stock up on Bariatric friendly foods and drinks. You don't need to just drink plain Water - have decaffeinated tea (hot or iced), crystal light, flavored water, etc. Measure your foods so you don't eat too much. If you do a few times - you won't permanently stretch your stomach but you need to be careful not to continue to work against your sleeve. The smoothie wasn't the best choice because of the sugar - but you can make your own healthy, Protein smoothies that will taste just as good. Concentrate on getting your protein and liquids (non caloric drinks). If you feel hungry it could be stomach acid - try taking a PPI or might be head hunger.

    @@TammyL323 There are very few people who have perfect bodies. If you have only met men that expect perfection - then you need to branch out.
