    pollymatin got a reaction from toodlerue in Rapid changes in bra sizes!   
    Mine are much smaller, still droopy though. Finally after all these years of backache, I’m happy with smaller boobs!

    I had a hiatal hernia. The doctor said he would fix it if it was big enough. Apparently it was big enough and he fixed it. My recovery has been normal and pretty easy. I was on pain meds for 5 days. I felt fine after that just lower energy for the first 3 weeks after surgery. I started exercising full on 4 weeks after surgery (Crossfit/equinox). This has been the best decision of my life even though towards the end of the mushy phase I was hating life a bit.

    I had my by bypass the day after my 59th birthday, Dec 2017. I wish I had it 10 years ago, but I’m happy now that I did it. My daughter calls me the incredible shrinking woman. I love seeing a one on my weight after having a two for so many years. I’m about 40 pounds down and to reach my goal I have another 45 to 50 to go. Good luck to us all!

    Good luck! Take it slow at first, get some rest to recover, it will all be worth it in the long run. Took me a few weeks to start feeling somewhat normal again.

    My bypass was 12/02/17. It does get better!
    Just do your best to get some Fluid and your Protein Shakes in. Force yourself to walk. I took chewable gas x twice a day. Nap and doze if you need to.
    Hopefully in a few weeks, you’ll be like me, eating chicken Caesar salads for lunch and wondering what you’ll look like by the end of the year!

    Omg that sounds sooo good right now! I really hope I will be able to eat that in a month! About how much are you able to eat at a time? I had my first popsicle tonight and not sure if it was that or my Tylenol wore off but I'm so nauseas and hurting.

    Make sure you have someone you trust with you. I had my daughter. My blood pressure was high the three days I was in hospital. It’s back to normal now. Don’t bring too much stuff with you, I didn’t use any of it. It’s a huge decision, you’re going to do great! Don’t expect to feel good for at least two weeks, then it’s day by day. It’s a life changer, that’s for sure.
