    Yeast Infection Help!

    Hi Ladies! I'm 2 months post op and have the yeast infection from hell. I went to a Little Clinic close to me (not my PCP or surgeon) and they gave me 2 doses of prescription Fluconazole PLUS I did a round of Monistat ... Almost a week later and it's still here! [emoji31] I'll call my PCP tomorrow but I thought I'd check here to see if this has happened to anyone else? I thought maybe my body wasn't absorbing the medication like it normally would?

    Thank you! I do have an appointment with my PCP this afternoon so if I get any info I will update for anyone else who can use it!

    Surgery and Divorce - Advice!?

    Ugh. Humans really do suck sometimes! You get honorary membership to our Justice League!
  4. 6 months ago I decided with the support of my husband to start the long insurance approval process for gastric sleeve surgery. 5 months so my husband of 12 years informed me he was no longer attracted to me didn't think the surgery would work, and wanted a divorce so he could "live his true life." The last few months have been unreal but I decided to go forward with the surgery even though most everyone recommended postponing it. I had the surgery last Tuesday (12/11) and my divorce was finalized today (12/17). All I want to do is eat ice cream and drink wine, but since that is obviously no longer on the menu, does anyone have some advice for how I can get through the next 24 hours? Drowning my sorrows in Gatorade and chicken broth is not cutting it! Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Surgery and Divorce - Advice!?

    You ladies are the best - thank you so much! Reading your replies have lifted my spirits more than you know. I now know to freeze protein shakes for ice cream, practice what to say when he comes crawling back after seeing that this WILL work damn it!, and pick one of his friends to sleep with!

    I couldn't get the link to work for some reason, but I Googled it and you're right - they have a lot of really good options. I have a journal I've been writing in but I haven't tried meditation yet - thank you! Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Surgery and Divorce - Advice!?

    Thank you! Definitely shed some tears and I'm sure there are more coming. My family and friends were actually so against my having the surgery that I didn't tell anyone. They know I had the LapBand removed - just not that I also had the sleeve done at the same time. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Surgery and Divorce - Advice!?

    That's a good idea - with 2 sons I always get outvoted and always have to see the super hero movies! Now to convince myself that popcorn, soda, and Junior Mints are not requirements for seeing a movie ... [emoji849] Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  14. Yes! I actually bought a package for myself for Christmas this year that expires in 1 year. I know I won't be perfect, but it's my motivation to have them done around this time next year! Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    December 2018 Sleevers!

    @Jendkopp, I'm curious why you waited to have the sleeve instead of combining the Lapband removal into one surgery? I had both procedures done on 12/11 and I do not envy you having the 2 separate surgeries. [emoji53] Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    time frame for feeling good?

    The one thing I've learned by reading through all these posts is that every single person is different! I had my surgery the day before you. I was feeling terrible until I realized I wasn't getting enough fluid and once I really focused on sipping constantly I felt much better. I've been going out to run errands since Friday simply because of necessity. I just pin my JP drain inside my jacket and walk slow! And as for meds, right now I'm taking liquid Tylenol every 8 hours. Starting tomorrow I'll try cutting back to every 12 hours but I'm a big fan of staying on top of the pain before it gets out of hand! Hope you start feeling better soon!
