  2. Treadmills

    So is 60 min of walking on a treadmill the same as 60 min of regular walking outside? I always feel more tired off a treadmill. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  3. Okay so here is my story on hiatal hernia please forgive my spelling. So about a year and a half ago i had ds surgery not by laparoscopy they pulled out my gallbladder and fixed my hernia. I was doing really well i started out at 391 then i wast 245 when i started to notice that i was eating more than most but not to where it was unusual but still had me asking questions. Then i noticed more heartburn not to where it was causing me to choke or anything but enough for me to ask for a higher dose of meds. I spoke to the doctor he did a scope and saw the hiatal hernia again. He tells me that because i was so big to begin with that it probably came back and that i should consider surgery again. I asked how will i know it will not come back again he said well now your alot smaller but i cant guarantee anything. I asked if he was going to slice me open again he said he wanted to try to do it by laparoscopy. If there is to much scar tissue then yes he says. So i have it done and he was able to do it the less invasive way, however i must say and this is just my opinion it hurt so much more than my first surgery. I had the same wonderful pain meds but it was not the incisions that hurt it was all the air they pumped into my body. I had more issues with this surgery than the first one. He had me on Liquids for a few days i could barely eat anything i went from a cup and a half to less than an ounce. Pain from burps coming up at the same time i would swallow ouch! Hiccups when my tummy had enough was new to me heard about it but never experienced it till now. The feeling of everything getting stuck just before it would go into stomach. Cold stuff felt like glass shards warm felt nice but only liquids. Now im about three weeks out things feel better gas pains finally went away pain meds did not help for that only caused severe constipation which i also did not have during first surgery. Right now what i feel is sore stabbing pains in the gut area from being in seated position. I also noted that i needed to wear the binder a lot longer than the first surgery. As for anesthesia i did notice it took me longer to recover from it. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

  5. Hernia

    I think what is freaking me out is that when i first had the surgery and hernia fix i knew what to expect. As time went by i noticed i could eat alot more and it felt off to me so i started asking folks around my time frame with my type of surgery how much they were able to eat and a couple were similar but most ate alot less. I now believe due to my hernia i was able to eat more. Now that its fixed it feels like im starting over which is kind of a blessing to help me lose the rest of my weight. The dr. Did say there would be some restrictiction he also said it would not last long. What freaks me out is they only had me on liwuid for a few days now soft foods until i could tolerate reg foods again. However the amount i can eat is like 2 oz like it was when i first started which is okay as long as i knew that this is normal and things will get better. My mind is just racing i will see my dr. On wed for follow up i am just one of those patients that if its rare and negative it usually happens to me. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

  8. Hernia

    So i just had my hernia repaired still healing from it. My dr was able to do it laproscopicly. I still worry though if it came back once it will come back again . I did not go through the gas pains the first time since i was cut open for the ds. I have to say this feels more painful this time around. Feelings are funny i burp and it hurts feels like an elephant is sitting on my chest till the air passes very painful. I walk alot that helps but wow!
