    They did blood work and urine test. All tests came back normal. I was told to follow up with primary doctor if it continues. I also had a bad cough so got a prescription called Bromfed? I advised dr about not getting anything with NSAIDS...anyone taken this cough syrup?

    I am now 4 1/2weeks post op. The first 2 weeks I drank the powder multivitamin lemonade flavor now I can’t stand it. So 3rd week I tried the chewable Bariatric Multivitamin with 45 mg of iron it was awful. So this week I tried capsule Bariatric with 45 mg iron once a day I swallowed it but it felt stuck in my throat then just felt nausea. Just wondering what else to do? I hadn’t tried gummies is that any better?
  6. Day 6 post op only 3 lbs down. I’ve been on full liquids. Thought I would’ve lost more. Is this normal?

    Blister with fluid

    I noticed this when Bandages were removed at home. I called dr office and sent picture. I was advised to pop so fluid can drained, clean with antibacterial soap and pat dry. Anyone else get this?

    Pre op Liquid Diet

    So in 5 days I begin all liquids before surgery. Did anyone just buy soup at restaurant and just drink the liquid part. I’m dreading this! Any ideas or suggestions please send my way. Thank you.
  17. I was wondering if anyone that got endoscopy had a chest X-ray? I got mine done in August. When I went last week for my preop appointment the dr said there was aspiration in my lungs. He said before surgery they will do a catscan. Just wondering will this postpone my sleeve surgery...anyone go through this?

    Aflac Coverage

    Does anyone have Aflac Short term disability and hospital confinement? Just wondering if anyone that had the sleeve was able to use while in the hospital and off work. My surgery is October 24th and dr will keep me off for 6 weeks.
  21. So I keep reading that many women are very fertile after surgery. Any success stories from women in their 40’s?
