    Pale and weak.

    I was pale and weak until I got referred to a Hematolgoist and got an iron transfusion. Have you had your iron levels checked ?

  5. It’s a wide stretchy band of fabric that you pull all your stomach close to your body (compression). It really helped me with pain. Especially when sitting or bending over. They have them on amazon. Maybe you can ask your dr what they think? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QLYZ1DK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_eaPBAb3432GAV hope they work soon for you. Has pain stinks.
  6. Hey , sorry you are miserable but eating something before the doc says can make your staples come undone or worse. I’d call your surgeon to get some advice. Or if you have a nutritionist ? I hope you feel better soon. Please don’t take my post as mean I just don’t want you hurting yourself.
  7. Did your surgeon give you a belly binder ? I’m getting one and I know after c section I used mine and it helped a ton. Just an idea ? Also if you try a stuffed animal or folded up blankets instead of your hand helps so much more with the coughing pains. Just hold it close. Have you tried gas x strips for the gas ? I’ve seen many swear by them. Hope this helps
  8. My band was awesome for awhile (lost 120 kept it mostly) but like most eventually it fails. Mine flipped and I couldn’t even drink water without horrid pain. I had it removed. A few friends had similar. I hate to scare you

    Tired and dizzy...low iron?

    That’s how I was with low iron. A simple infusion helped a ton. Glad you are getting it checked out just in case.
  14. I am days away. Feb 1st I have cut out soda, went low carb, I’ve been swimming/doing water aerobics, logging my food, drinking way more water than I ever have. I’m shopping for things I need for the surgery. Reading info on here and other groups. I’ve been cleaning and organizing my room, bathroom, etc so I can access things easy afterwards. Trying to breathe lol

    I'm so HANGRY! Please help!

    If you don’t get enough calories your body will go into starvation mode. You got this. Mood swings will happen with this journey just try to take it one day at a time.
