    toodlerue got a reaction from Slimming Down Steve in 2 weeks today since my RNY surgery. Doing and eating great.   
    Wow! So glad you are doing so good. Men must be different because I sure wasn’t that much real food 2 weeks out! I was still on liquids! Good for you!

    Your body is going through a lot with major surgery & low calories. Give it time for your body to adjust.

    toodlerue got a reaction from FluffyChix in Constipation   
    We took GasX right after. You can take a Fiber powder that you mix in Water for constipation right now. (I just can’t think of what it’s called right now!) If you think you are really impacted use an enema. You don’t need to lay down on the ground, just use it while sitting on the toilet & hold it in for a few minutes.

    toodlerue reacted to Darktowerdream in Hair is feeling very coarse ?   
    Hope you don’t mind if I suggest some things that helps me with that. I take Natures way Alive! hair skin & nails gummies with 300mg collagen. I also take omegas, my favorite is hero nutritionals Omega 3 with chia seed (also gummies) and my Multivitamin is Garden of Life mykind organics Whole Foods Gummy drops (it’s actually a prenatal Vitamin which is common in bariatric patients) I was going to switch to a one a day tablet but can’t find any without added iodine and the whole food based nutrition absorbs better. (I get them from vitacost.com)

    I find certain Vitamins help a lot with dry hair and skin. Also any itching or irritated skin I recommend Tamanu oil, even for blemishes.

    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?

    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.

    I use the PatchMD Patches. I take way too many other pills. The patches are so easy!

    toodlerue got a reaction from FluffyChix in Help! I think food is stuck in stoma between pouch and intestines!   
    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.

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

    toodlerue got a reaction from Lamermaid in 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.
