    Struggling with liquids and food

    Did your doc give you any anti nausea meds? Give him a call & see what he recommends.

    Feeling so depressed

    I’m so sorry. I can Understand how frustrated you are. That was wrong and rude of your nut to cancel your appointment right before your appointment. Is there anyway you can do a video appointment with them?

    They say walking helps to get the gas out. The pain in my shoulder lasted 3 weeks! It was horrible!

    Co morbidity

    I got approved with a BMI of 33 for medical reasons. A previous surgery to fix a hiatal hernia failed after 12 years. My esophagus was in an L shape & half of my stomach was above my diaphragm. Food was getting stuck 5-6 times a week. Because of my circumstances I didn't have to do any of the prerequisites & my doc was a Thorasic doc & not a Bariatric doc & he told me to get all my info from the internet.

    Puree food ideas plz...

    I puréed food that I made for the family. Roast, chicken, carrots. I used the juice from cooking them. They were really good. Much better then baby food! I also made my own applesauce. Pealed an Apple, chopped it up and simmered it with some water & cinnamon. No need to add any sugar. I portioned them up in small containers & put them in the freezer. You also can add unflavored protein powder to anything you purée.

    Bloating after meals?

    Same thing happens to me. I don’t know what it is. I don’t get it. How does it happen if my stomach is the size of a shot glass?
  8. Drink a little bit of Coke. That’s what the ER will most likely have you do. I kept small bottles on hand for this reason.

    Bad taste in mouth

    I thought it was from not eating food with any substance in the 1st couple of months. As I added more food choices that required more chewing I noticed that it went away.

    Stinky Pee

    Are you drinking a bunch of water? It could smell because you are dehydrated.

    Do I really regret it?

    I felt the same way. What the heck did I do to myself? Give it time, it will get better.

    I took a lot of gasX, Dramamine (25mg meclizine) & a few pain pills for the 1st 2-3 months. And regretted even having the surgery. My daughter said I made it look so easy. I was just hiding it.
  20. I wonder the same thing.

    Anyone use a CPAP machine?

    I have used one for over 12 years! I wear It so my husband doesn’t hit me during the night! Hahaha I too wake up feeling like it is going to blow off my face & with a very dry mouth. I had A home study test the beginning of the year I had the lowest number of episodes a person can have to have apnea! The doctor lowered my pressure & it was still happening. So I GOOGLED HOW TO CHANGE THE PRESSURE on my machine & DID IT MYSELF! I just took it down from a 5 to 4.5 & it is much better now.

    On Q Pain system?

    I had a pain pump. But I don’t think it was an On-Q.

    Dumping question

    It all depends on you! I can have a limited amount of sugar without dumping. Then I over do it & feel terrible for about 15 min. Sometimes I have just 2 bites of a cookie & then throw it away.
