  1. I'm on suboxone and quitting 4 days prior. However my surgeon said he won't be able to give me anything that breaks through that barrier and prevents pain. That is one thing I'm nervous about. Knowing I'll be in pain. Anyone else out there on suboxone?
  2. Surgery 09/14/17. I’ve not changed a thing, I even tightened the reigns on things I had gotten loose with, I’ve been stalled about 2.5-3 months. Does this mean I’m basically done?
  3. When I had my first consult i had met my deductible and then they call amd verify everything and insurance told them yes it was met and everything is covered 100%, I have several documents stating that. But here it is 4 months later, and I see where BCBS paid hardly ANY claims, they said it was out of network, like the anesthesiologist snd several others. I made sure to be in network with all people I knew about but was i supposed to wake up mid surgery and ask everyone if theyre on BCBS?!?!? Im talking $30,000 in claims. Any one experience this? did you appeal? Howd it go? They denied my vitamin D test even!!! It was $300, and ive even been diagnosed with vitamin d deficiency in the past andhad to take meds for it?!!? Im very upset!!
  4. I never thought I would be here and so fast, this is the best decision I have ever made, 4 months post.
  5. Awwww! Well 185 today But I think I’m gonna make you my new best friend tho haha
  6. I struggle daily getting my protein in, I can't drink the smoothies/shakes, they make me sick, literally, so I have ordered some Protein Water inGrape off amazon that looks promising, but I do my best every day, but my hair is getting scary thin, what did you do when this happened to you? I also have had a 2 week long period, which I read is also most likely related to protein, messing up hormones etc. Im bound to be getting 40g a day but I know I need 60. Its so much harder than it sounds, I thought "OMG how easy! I can just eat this and this and be there!" that was BEFORE!!! Im just concerned, it's not like I'm not trying to eat it... Please help if youve been where I am!!
  7. I’m doing everything right. I’ve not changed the way I️ve eaten (surgery 9/14) I️ mean the last month I’ve eaten and drank the same. Worked out 5x a week. I’ve been SLOWLY losing but this week I’ve gained 2.5 pounds?! I️ thought I️ was just stalked but no! It’s going backwards!!!! I️ want to cry. If I️ knew what to do different I️ would but I’m not messing up anywhere...[emoji17]
  8. Ok. I️ agree to weigh less often. I️ told my daughter to hide the scale. Thanks for the info. I️ didn’t know about glycogen.
  9. Ok... I'm gonna try, I'm gonna ask my daughter to hide the scale from me too.. I'm really upset.. I was already stalled for a week, then it went the wrong direction.. This is harder than I thought.. Sometimes I feel like I am capable of eating more food than I could 2 weeks ago! I'm just scared, I see so many people fail, its scary.
  10. I️ can’t edit. Dunno why it’s doing “?”’s. That should be the letter “I️”.

    I’m stalled. I’ve been losing steady since before surgery which was 9/14. I’ve been stuck at 201!! I’m DYING TO SEE IT GO BELOW 200! And it won’t! Despite working out daily I’ve been here for 2 weeks. If I️ was t working out I️ would just say “well I’ll get to the gym!” But it’s not happening! I️ don’t eat much, guess none of us do, it’s annoying!
  12. Thanks. I️ like skim milk I’ll have to see if I️ can find that here in Texas!!
  13. No!! But I’m taking ideas. Where do I find this? Online?
  14. I’m always hungry like STARVING, but don’t want anything. Nothing sounds good. I know I’m doing bad on protein, it’s so hard to get it in. I read that could cause that “never satisfied” feeling, anyone else experienced that?
  15. @Waler when you say excess stomach acid, is there any way to know if that is possibly part of the problem?
  16. I'm 2 weeks out. These protein shakes are killing me!!! I can tolerate them for a little longer but I've GOT to have something besides strawberry banana to drink!!!! From here to eternity! I've found a powder I like - I'm weird, I don't like chocolate of any kind in any form so PLEASE give me your ideas and tips l!!!! The pic is a one month change!
  17. Yes my hair is thinning. I DO love those tuna kits and they are so easy! Thanks for reminding me!!
  18. Well I’m not losing fast AT all. After a week stalled I lost on the one month mark, the scale moved 1 lb. I don’t know how to change my start date weight and current weight in my profile. But here is a pic 4 days post op and then yesterday at a month but only lost 11lbs since surgery but lost 20 before so 31 total. Hoping next month is better.
  19. Well, thank you. I’m keeping the faith and maybe the scale isn’t moving but my clothes are..:)
  20. Well, thank you. I’m keeping the faith and maybe the scale isn’t moving but my clothes are..:)
  21. Ok. Thank you. I’m trying to get enough protein as it is. It’s SO hard. But I can see those two things may jump start the metabolism.
  22. My surgeon does an ab pain block similar to an epidural where you feel nothing for hours. Like when you go to the dentist and the object you and block the pain? So they told me they don't really give pain meds the day you're In For surgery has anyone else experienced that?
  23. Right??? I’m keeping positive tho. Of course I don’t have much option now! Lol
  24. I’m TRYING to not get down. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s experienced this. But I’ve hardly eaten in a month!!! And since surgery only TEN pounds?! I don’t freakin get it. Yes I can tell in my clothes etc. but I’m following all the rules and not starving on purpose, sometimes it’s tough to eat but I’m doing ok overall but 10lbs is a joke I lost more than that pre op??? :/ upper left 4 days post op. Bottom right most recent.
  25. I'm scared. I'm pretty sure I was beat with a baseball bat for hours. This pain is the worst I've ever felt. I am scared to ask but when will it subside? I got 20 Vicodin and that's all they gave. I got nothing yesterday in recovery even. I'm really scared that I made a huge mistake. I'm really scared this pain will last for weeks. I'm just scared of a lot right now. I've been hateful to my mom who is here helping I'm not myself and I know it's normal but I'm scared of this pain!!
