  1. Hi I haven’t been here for awhile, I’m 9 months in and down 93 lbs. I was hoping to hit 100 before my appointment which was last week, I’ve been having severe nausea and vomiting, I have an appointment Gastro Doctor next week. I was Prescribed 800mg Motrin I know I wasn’t supposed take it but I started 4 months after surgery, I’m just hoping that I didn’t give myself an ulcer. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I have edema in both legs- my left is much worse, I take Lasix- 40mg. it has gone down slightly since my surgery on 8/6. I tried oils,massage, wrapping, also a machine called Verso that only fit on my foot it was meant to fit on the calf but that def. wouldn't happen. I wonder if the people who made the product even know what edema does. I was wondering if anyone else has seen a big improvement after weight loss, I really hope that it goes away. Thanks for any thoughts.

    Hunger after sleeve...

    I felt hunger after a week, although I think it was in my mind more than anything. 1 week to go until I go to puree, actually kinda nervous about that, I hope I don't gain.
  13. I started at 385 I lost 15 before surgery which wasn't a a whole heck of alot but my surgeon said it was ok and I had my surgery on 8/6. I was 370 the day of. I am 2 weeks post op, the 1st week I lost 7 and this week 13 for a total of 20 which I am very happy about. I also think it's going to take at least 80 for people to really notice. It will come in time- it took time to put it on and it will take time to take it off.

    In absolute shock

    Very sorry to hear about your experience, I am also on lisinopril and bystolic my surgeon took me off lisinopril before surgery I also had bad EKG's had a Angiogram to get cleared, I wish you the best in getting your surgery done and without issues.

    40 something sleevers?

    Hi, 47 here sleeved 8/6. I'm happy with my decision, But yes I wish I had done it earlier. It has been 2weeks with 20lbs gone. 1 week to go in liquid phase little nausea but otherwise can't complain.

    Liquid Phase

    I am really liking broths, I have a cup for lunch and or diner, it does make you feel as thought you "ate". I have 2 shakes a day they are so filling and after about 7oz I get nausea. I bought Equate caramel but it is way to sweet for me, my favorite so far is PP strawberries&cream. I have tried PP water not a fan. I like Snapple Diet Peach I have a sip here an there between water.
