    This is 1 month post op vs 14 months post op VSG. I couldn't be happier with my tool. Sent from my SM-G975U using BariatricPal mobile app

    that horrible stall

    6 months post op and I am struggling to lose more than about a pound a week if I am lucky. It's frustrating but really puts into focus how hard weekends can be to manage. which was my problem before surgery as well.

    Follow the docs recommendation and restrictions, and talk to your HR so they can set up a light duty reasonable accommodation if they have a program in place. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app

    Insane Itching

    I had to get a prescription bc it turned out I was allergic to the adhesive on the suture glue. It was horrible!! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app

    Have you tried not eating dairy and dairy based proteins like whey? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app
  7. Does anyone else have significant light headed spells when they stand up? My blood pressure drops when I stand and it's very disconcerting. I talked to my office but they were stumped. It's worse when I take a bath but that's expected in hot water. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app

    Bariatric Pal Store??? Non-whey options.

    There are some great vegan protein shakes that only require a little bit of doctoring to make them yummy. Ripple, Vega, and tone it up are pretty good. They do need some boosting from the sugar free Torani flavors. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app
  9. Y'all, I found out the crappy way that I have an allergy to the incision glue, my stomach is a riot of itchy hives that I am using hydrocortisone and taking Zyrtec (Doctors orders). It sucks so much. Additional skin issues are happened all over my face and shoulders, I feel like a teenager with all this acne! Wtf is going on? Is this hormones being released from fat loss? I'm a week post vsg. Suggestions? I've been drinking plenty of water and doing relatively ok on protein. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using BariatricPal mobile app

    They asked me to lose 5 and I lost 9 and am still going down. Might lose another 1-2lbs before the my surgery date on the 22nd.

    Im very fortunate, they aren't making me do a pre-op liquid diet because I lost enough weight already they are fine with just liquids the day before surgery only. but starting to get nervous and trying to tell the negative voices in my head to back off.

    Did they accept your referral check up as your first weigh in or only the stuff labeled specifically as weigh ins with your surgeon?
