    Hi same person different account [emoji1] After talking to my Dr I had to do a seminar then they call to make an appointment from the surgeons office after you complete that. They require 6 months of weigh ins and if you miss one they will make you start from the beginning even if it's your last appointment. So make sure you go. -psych eval -dietician eval -history and physical done by primary -labs -cardiac clearance -gi clearence. This one wasn't a normal thing I was already seeing him so that's why it was required. -support group agreement. That was done when I was given all my paperwork. - no drug or alcohol clearence letter from primary - 2 years of primary care records - a nutrion class - a hospital wellness class After they get all that they submitted it and it was 2 weeks later I got the call to schedule. Then 2 weeks after that I had my surgery. I had mine done in Modesto. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Weight gain

    Stallings normal. I saw where someone said that weight loss on a chart looks more like stairs than a slope. I had the bypass lost the first 2 weeks and I've been stalled since. My Dr said to up your protein and water when you stall and it should help break it. It didn't really help me but it may help you. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    After effects

    I had diarrhea after mine and then it eventually went away. You probably still have gas in you that's causing the chest pains. So walk if you can and take the chewable gas x. The cherry cream ones taste like cough syrup but the hospital had mint that were so much better. You're also supposed to be taking sips of water not gulps so maybe that's why. I had a timer set on my phone to go off every 5 mins to remind me to take a sip. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Stalled stalled stalled

    I'll be a month on Thursday. I lost the first 2 weeks and haven't lost anything last 2. I wish it was only 5 days. I did lose 40 something lbs though! Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Pain between shoulder blades

    I've done hot packs and cold packs neither worked. I had it popped and it felt better for a little bit but then eventually came back. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Grilled cheese alternative?

    I'm the same way. Sweets aren't my weakness bread and Pasta are. So even when I'm allowed to start eating them I don't want to. I feel like it would make all this pointless. I'm not even 3 weeks out yet I will be on Thursday but I'm not on the pureed diet anymore. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app
  7. Did anyone else start feeling this? It's been a little over 2 weeks since my surgery and the last few days my back has started to hurt. I never had real bad gas pain after surgery so I don't think it is that. The pain feels like when I was in highschool and I went up two cup sizes.

  8. I was told that biotin will do nothing to stop hair loss it's only to make the hair you have thicker. The only thing that can help you from losing your hair is getting all your protein in and taking your vitamins. Even that isn't a guarantee. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Will stomach infection stop my approval

    All they wanted was the negative test results and then I was cleared with that. I've actually been real good. I've had no problems drinking/eating. Only a few gas pains and pain in general. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Probiotics for us?

    My dietician said the Garden of Life Raw Probiotics are the best to take. They're on Amazon. I've never taken them so I can't say how they work good. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Will stomach infection stop my approval

    I did the antibiotics which took two weeks and then I had to wait a couple more weeks before retesting. I was negative and then cleared. I had my surgery done on 6/6. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    Packing a bag for the hospital

    The hospital gave me the chewable ones. So those are the ones I bought too. If you do go that route the Cherry Cream tastes like cough syrup so go with the mint. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app
  14. When I get into my car my butt will knock the rubber seal off the frame of the car. So I'm definitely looking forward to not having to deal with that anymore[emoji23] Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app
  15. I gained 6 lbs right before my surgery and freaked out. I had been told the same about delaying the surgery and I was doing the same eating all the food I wasn't going to have again. All my worrying was for nothing though. I was honest before I was even weighed that I was going to be heavier and they told me "you wouldn't be here if you didn't have a problem and could do this on your own." So I wish you luck and hopefully your office was as forgiving as mine. Sent from my moto e5 plus using BariatricPal mobile app
