  1. Hi,

    Hi,

    I recently stopped feeling restriction. Admittedly, this was after a vacation of over indulging. Has anybody experienced this? Will it come back?

    I should add that I’m pretty much done with my weight loss, and the surgery was over 14 months ago.

    Insurance approved my lower body lift!



    I can't tell you how happy I am. I literally cried tears of joy! Sometimes insurance will only approve a portion of the lift, usually panniculectomy (sp?) but they approved everything for me. I had a history of rashes, boils, repeated yeast infections in my belly button. My belly skin sagged to the pubic region, which is probably why they approved me. Not only will this improve my look but my quality of life! I won't have to move my skin around to do things, like pee, or putting on clothes or shower!



    So now... What do I need? I need a shopping list of things for this surgery. I might only have a month or two to prepare! Top items on my list:



    Power Lift Recliner

    Lots of pillows

    Walker

    Pre-op Skin Wash

    Medical side table on wheels

    Compression garments come with the surgery but probably need more post-op



    Who was your surgeon?

    Any problems? How much and how often have you had it and did it hinder your weight loss at all ?


    Nope, but I don’t go overboard. I did get drunk, and very hungover. I’ve drank prob 6 times, sometimes just a glass of wine, and some 3. I’m still in grad school, so it’s part of the culture.

    Also, this isn’t to you, but others reading lol, yes I know there are other activities I could do with friends, but right now I’m happy, and losing weight, and my doctor is fine with it!

    Here's a sample for you that is appropriate for week two. It is about 1/4cup of food per meal. You might not be able to finish your tuna lunch, but you could come back in an hour or so and be able to finish it -- in the early days.




    Also, don't know if your doc allows you to drink milk. My doc wants us to drink 1-2 glasses of milk per day as part of our plan to get Calcium and Protein in, but I rarely do it--cuz I don't really like it.




    You can jazz up yogurt with Water drops in different fruit flavors. I like doing plain low fat Greek, cuz then I know exactly how much yogurt I'm getting relative to the additives that they put in it.




    Also 3oz of swai (pangasius) is a light fish. It is a raw measurement and it shrinks a ton. So this should give you 1/4c of cooked fish (about 1 1/2-2oz cooked). And at first, you will basically only be eating Protein and some meat lube (low cal, low carb, low sugar) sauces at each meal.

    It happens. I lost 24 the first week. I lost really quick. I hit 100 pounds in like 4/5ish months. It's insane. Just try to enjoy the ride my friend. Its gets much better. Trust me! You interested in coming to Dr. Fitzer's monthly support group? They are awesome and super supportive. The next one is September 10th at Reston Hopital. Pavillion II, classroom B @6pm.


    Unfortunately I have class :/ how did you manage to lose so quickly? Could you PM if you have time??

    I doubt throwing up will damage your pouch, but why are you throwing up? How far post-op are you? Is it nausea? food? Foamies?


    I’m pretty sure it’s food! It can happen when I eat very slowly and with foods that I’ve had no probs with. However, it’s always after eating! I just don’t know what could be causing it!
