  1. I think it completely depends on the person. I know that every thought I had was about getting as much off as possible prior to surgery. I don't think you need to contact the dietitian unless you were loosing nothing. Your moving in the right direction good luck to you !! Your on an incredible journey but it is all worth it!!
  2. I used Dr. Cervantes and he did a great job. (He is a very skilled surgeon I got pretty sick and had to have X-rays and the ER surgeon here in the US said the stitches were perfect and my illness had nothing to due with the surgery) I would use him again he cant speak English but don't let that deter you in any way he just gets better.

    Wow, I am sorry people are being so grouchy with you! I had the same situation happen.. had to go to the ER twice upper EGD and IV treatments sometimes two times a week. I know your struggle and it does get better.. the best advice my doctor gave me was.... it sucks but if you don't make yourself drink and eat you will be coming here every week. Slowly I recovered... give yourself that rest and go slowly.. soup worked for me. Trust me it is for sure worth it!!

    It is so important to get that water in my friend. The food part will come and its so hard to want to eat more than two bites and not be able to. Its for sure a mind thing. Worry about hydration at this point food will come your body will tell you but the water is so important in any form broth, Popsicle anything with fluid

    Sharp pinching pain (left side)

    I had the same type of pains and occasionally do still, my doctor told me it was most likely my body healing and re-arranging due to the weight loss. its a normal worry but if it is constant i would get it checked out.
