  1. I just found this thread today and wanted to resurrect it if possible to see if anyone has ever resolved this issue. I have reflux bad at night and wake every morning with acid irritating my throat. Yesterday I started losing my voice so naturally I thought I was getting sick. Only symptom I have is throat hurts like crazy. Today, I can't talk at all. Full laryngitis has set in. I have no other symptoms though so I dont think this a cold or sinus infection. I see my surgeon on Thursday for my 6 month post sleeve follow up, but I don't think hes going to offer much help because hes always a jerk (true). I already take protonix daily along with tums chewable as needed. I know most people resolve the reflux issue by conversion to bypass, but that's not an option for me as my insurance doesn't include bariatric coverage so I self paid. I don't have another $15 K for another surgery ☹

    Yay me!! Just got my new treadmill today. I live in Tennessee where the heat and humidity are terrible, and I can't imagine trying to walk outside after surgery without passing out. What do all you June sleevers do for exercise? Sent from my LM-G710VM using BariatricPal mobile app

    When can I sleep on my stomach?

    I sleep on my right side so this is a concern for me as well. Good luck! Sent from my LM-G710VM using BariatricPal mobile app

    No family support

    My husband still doesn't support my decision, and my surgery is in 8 days! I just keep telling myself I'm not doing this for him, I'm doing this for me. Hopefully at some point he'll be able to stand beside me and be proud of who I've become and how far along I made it. If not, that's his problem - not mine. I agree it would be much easier if he supported me though. Good luck to you! Sent from my LM-G710VM using BariatricPal mobile app

    I'm thinking you will be more prepared than me for the liquid phase after surgery though. Honestly [emoji6] Sent from my LM-G710VM using BariatricPal mobile app

    June 2019 Surgery Siblings!

    Yep!! June 3rd ends life as I know it. Which is not a bad thing, I do realize that. But it's still freaking me out nonetheless. I am most worried about the pain after the surgery and how quickly I'm going to feel like going back to work. Hopefully I will be going back to work the next week, but from reading everyone else's posts it's a wait-and-see, thing. my anxiety levels are extremely high at night when I'm laying there trying to go to sleep and my mind is racing. So you are not alone... Sent from my LM-G710VM using BariatricPal mobile app
  10. I heave read many times on here ~~ if you start to fail, go back to the basics ~~ start with the liquid diet again to help you get back on track. Good luck!

    What vitamins to take?

    I agree with the other two ladies -- in addition, I am taking Biotin since I heard about hair loss on down the road (my surgery is June 3rd). I wanted to be as prepared for that hair loss as possible! My multi vitamin, calcium citrate, and biotin are in gummy form, and my B-12 is sublingual liquid, which doesn't taste bad at all
