    Uomograsso reacted to Uomograsso in Coronavirus: to mask or not to mask?   
    The CDC has done a study and found the majority of people (70.6%) contracting corona virus always wore masks. So, based on the data, no a mask will not keep you from getting corona virus. The size of the virus is too small for any mask other than a N-95 mask to block it.
    That being said, the real purpose of the mask is to prevent YOU from spreading corona virus if you contract it. The majority of people contracting corona virus have mild or no symptoms, so please wear a mask when you will be in contact with others and cannot distance yourself.

    Hit a pretty awesome goal. When I started out in July of 2019 and decided to have WLS, I weighed 427 lbs. My last weekly weigh in I was 212.2. That means I am officially half the person I used to be. On another note, I am now officially overweight! You might ask why that is a good thing. I have spent almost all of my adult life with a BMI that put me in the obese category, but now with my weight loss my BMI is 29.6 which is considered overweight. When I started out my BMI was 60. My surgeon required me to get my BMI to 50 before the surgery so I lost 92 lbs between July 2019 and January 2020 and my BMI was about 48 at the time of my surgery. After surgery I have lost another 123 lbs. No secret, just follow your plan. Eat you Protein first, meet your daily protein goals, exercise, exercise, exercise. I am doing a minimum of 30 minutes 5 days a week and usually shooting for 60 minutes daily of intense exercise. My only regret is that I didn't have WLS years earlier.

    Wow, that is AMAZING. Congratulations! I started with a BMI of 69 at 393lb. and 5'3". My goal is to be under 200. You've given me hope that I'll make it!
    You must feel wonderful!

    Uomograsso reacted to Thebellwoman in Stricture repair   
    Hello. I had the gastric sleeve in 2014. I started having severe acid reflux to the point I was waking up choking in my sleep. Found out my stomach was twisted. I had the gastric bypass Nov 2019 to correct the problem. After a few months I couldn't keep any food down and found out I had a stricture. Tried the endoscopy to try to open it up but the scar tissue was too bad. Having surgery tomorrow to see if he can remove the scar tissue. If not, then he will have to reroute my intestines to another part of my stomach. I'm so disappointed in all that has happened and scared because of all the surgery being done to my stomach. I keep having this nightmare of walking around with a colostomy bag because of damage. I'm going to stay positive but wanted to know if anyone had to have surgery again after a stricture?

    If you're in pain, get the referrals and do what they ask, and maintain that your pain levels are problematic. AZ is one of the worst states for narcotics, but go through the steps and they can and will help... eventually. They will take imaging which will show issues, and PT only goes so far.
    BTW, I do PT every week. Basically a message with wet heat after. It doesn't help, but it feels good.
    Just like WLS, there are steps to follow, tests to be done.
    good luck,
    Tek

    I've been eating a half serving of Special K High Protein (7.5g of Protein) and a half cup of 1% milk (4g of protein). Fills me up and I always seem to lose better with that Breakfast than any other.

    But, has anyone tried these? I get mine at Thrive Market (on line) but I think they have them at Trader Joe's now...as well as Amazon. 90 calories and 9g of protein. I like the jalapeno ones best!!
