    Strictures post sleeve!!

    Yes, I had the same problem. I was a band to sleeve revision as well and had a lot of problems with the band. I failed the emptying test twice post sleeve with that nasty liquid they made you drink. It turned out there was just a lot of inflammation from the lap band. I spent five days in the hospital and had to slowly heal. I couldn't tolerate liquids for three days. It will all work out. Just give it time.

    Supporting my Wife

    Well, it sounds like you already have the right attitude. Just be there for her through it and when she gets excited about her weight loss be happy with her. Help her in any way you can but don't be too critical. My husband doesn't have a weight problem so I don't expect him to eat like me. I also don't need him telling me what to do. I am aware of what I need to be doing. Is this her first weight loss surgery or is she having a revision?
  5. My coworkers make comments like you eat slow or is that all you are having. When I am out to dinner and I ask for a to go box, the people I am with are like you didn't eat much? Is something wrong with your food? I feel like I am constantly explaining myself to people and making horrible excuses on why I didn't eat my food. I just wish everyone would mind their own business!!
  6. I was warned about this but now it is so obvious people are hating on me for having success with weight loss. I have a friend who is always trying new diets and asking me to join her. I always politely decline. I have lost about 43 lbs and she looks about the same. I can see her looking me up and down and making comments about me not eating my food. I haven't brought myself to tell very many people about my surgery. I am not sure what is holding me back. My husband, daughter, parents, and best friend know. I plan to eventually let people know but I am just not quite ready yet.......????
  7. I have a hard time with that too. Boiled eggs, tuna, low fat cheese, chicken breast, lean steak. You are doing great. I am 40lbs down but I am 5 months out. Keep up the great work!!

    Throw out the Scale

    I had to stop weighing myself daily and start weighing myself once a week. I think it is important to see your progress, but not obsess about it.

    Hunger

    I just had a huge revelation about hunger. I was doing great for months with no cravings and then I started feeling hungry all the time. I realized I ran out of my prescription Prilosec and hadn't been taking it. I read somewhere that a lot of times we mistake hunger for acid reflux. I have been taking the Prilosec for two days and no cravings!!

    Need Some Feedback/Advice

    I am a band to sleeve revision. I lost 50lbs with the lap band but put 25 back on. I had the revision done Aug.17th and so far no more pain and belching like with the band. I am 35 lbs total. I went 8 months completely unfiilled with the band to reduce all the swelling and inflammation, I did put on about 10 lbs during that time. It didn't bother me because I knew I was getting a revision. Don't sweat it and follow the steps so you can have the revision soon!! Good luck!!
  11. This is my 2nd weight loss surgery and I am definitely doing better this time around. It helps to have supportive people to help you. The hospital where you had your surgery should have a monthly support meeting. You should check into it. Good luck with everything!!
  12. I am having a hard time with chicken breast but I do fine with steak and hamburgers.
  13. Awesome!! You are already making so many positive changes and having successful weight loss. Keep up the great work!!
  14. Yes you will. I found that any kind of broth could cause it. Not fun!!
  15. Thanks for sharing and congratulations on hitting and maintaining goal!!
