    I’ve been taking Pepcid and it has been a life saver!! Hope you find relief. I’ll try it, thanks for the tip! Do you take nexium too?

    I too have been having increased heartburn. I’ve been keeping tums by my bedside. I’m on day 23 and heart burn has become worse, I’m wondering if I can take nexium twice a day? Have to ask my doctor. But I would keep the tums close by. Good luck. Hope you feel better.
  4. Sounds like your doing great! Unlike you I couldn’t tolerate anything with artificial sweeteners nor anything dairy, but that has passed thankfully. I hope you get that tube removal once less thing to worry about. Can I ask you how did you you get your little runner track, I have been unable to get this? Keep up the good work!
  5. Hello to revision from lapband to sleevers. I’m 22 days out and just wondering how everyone is doing. I’m having a lot of heartburn no matter what I eat. I’m still very fatigued if I do something for more the two hours straight, like housework. I actually feel faintish. Sometimes I’m hungry sometimes not. When I eat I have to be very careful because I don’t feel full until it’s to late then I’m sick, I’m trying to measure out food but I’m so hungry at that moment that I feel that one more tablespoon is not going to make a difference..wrongo! Otherwise I’m feeling great, no pain or soreness anymore I never took pain meds so that wasn’t and issue. Sleeping is getting better can lay on my side now without discomfort!! Just like to know how everyone else is doing and stage they are in?

    Still don’t have a chart? Is it something I have to install?
  8. So glad you are getting band out as I can tell you the longer you wait the worse it is. I had mine done together, it was about 5 hour total, 3 hour surgery 2 recovery room. I had my surgery at 8am I was up and walking by dinner time. I walked as much as I could and never had one gas pain. They have you hooked to everything so it wasn’t easy to get around. This recovery has been so much easier then having it put in. good luck to you
  9. So glad you finally had your surgery done! I too had The hiatal hernia issue too, just awful. I’m 18days out and feel good, I get tired easily but that is expected. Had an issue with the artificial sweeteners and dairy made me sick, I’m okay with the dairy as of a few days ago, the sweetener I’m incorporating in slowly. My weight loss is about 4 pounds. Don’t worry about the full liquids as my doctor told me last visit if you feel comfortable drinking more do it, I drink just as I did before my surgery now, no little sips.

    Cravings- pureed food

    That’s good for no cravings, I think it’s more of a texture issue with me know that I’ve been finally been able to hold protein in. Are you a revision or just bypass?

    It is thrush...just gave me one pill. I’ve been adding half power aid grape to my 32oz water bottle, helping me drink more!

    Cravings- pureed food

    I had to go with plant based protein because by proces of illumination I found out it as the whey that was making me go to the bathroom. Found organic protein at Walmart, feel so much better getting and keeping in the protein. the nutritionist told me to watch the calories on slim fast but if it’s the only meal it should be fine. room

    How do you get to have all your surgery and weights to show including the cute chart?

    Cravings- pureed food

    How are you doing today? I trying a different kind of protein shake, I know if I can get the shakes to stay in I will feel less hungry. Last night I noticed my tongue was a dark color. I brush twice a day including my tongue but don’t usually stick it out to look! Yikes looks scary, my opinion it’s not thrush I had it last year from another surgery. I’m waiting to get a call back from the doctor. I’m going to try increase my fluid today whenever I feel hungry. Hope your day goes well! Let me know how you are doing! Jacquie
