    Uomograsso got a reaction from PuddinJasper in Corona delaying weight loss surgery dates? Anyone?   
    It originated in Wuhan China. Historically flu strains are named after their place of origin. Hence Wuhan virus. More accurately it is Wuhan coronavirus. The disease it causes is named COVID 19. The official name of the virus is SARS-CoV-2. A coronavirus encompasses a wide variety of viruses, not just the Wuhan coronavirus. It is now being report that the death rate for those under 50 is 0.1%. Yes it is serious due to the transmission rate being higher than that of influenza, but the irrational fear being pumped out daily does nothing to help the situation.

    Get some unflavored Protein Powder and mix a half or whole scoop in with your meals. Works well in soft foods like refried Beans, oatmeal, eggs, Soup, etc. This can add 15 g to 30 g for that meal. Tip on adding it is for liquids mix it with room temperature Water first then add it to hot liquids. For soft foods, add it after you have heated food. If you add it straight to hot liquids it will clump. Same thing if you add it to soft foods prior to heating the food up.

    Calcium will block the absorption of Iron. That is why multivitamins with iron have zero calcium. My nutritionist drilled into our class that you need to wait two hours between taking iron and calcium. Follow the ASBMS guidelines for Vitamins .

    First few weeks I carried a cup of Water everywhere I went. I even had one on my nightstand next to my bed so I could sip when I woke up in the middle of the night. Sip, sip, sip all day long and soon it will become a habit and get easier to get your fluids in.

    Uomograsso reacted to AJ Tylo in When to transition from liquids to soft foods   
    Just be careful and take the transisition slowly, Your body knows more then your doctor does when it is ready you will realize it. No two of us are the same so slowly transition thru the phases, You may need a few more days or maybe your ready to go. Slow and Steady wins the race.
    Trust me go to fast and you will pay for it! Welcome and Congrads

    Uomograsso reacted to AJ Tylo in Surgeon confirmed stretching of pouch?   
    Dr Bass out of Florida has been doing this for years - I asked him this weeks ago and he said out of the 10000 surgery patients he has never seen a big stretch. However he did say you can open up your stoma and flow calories thru rapidly, However that is also very hard to do.
    He stated that people who fail go back to unhealhty choices, He gave a example of a guy who would eat 3 family size bags of chips a day, all day would just consume consume consume them.
    I am with above Urban legend!

    I don't think pouches really stretch. More likely, the stoma (the opening between the pouch and the small intestine) can stretch.

    Uomograsso reacted to alleamarie in Drinking too much wine   
    Technically if you stopped drinking and didn't change anything about your eating habits you should lose 1 to 1.5 lbs a week. A bottle of wine has about 600 calories and you need to burn 3500 calories to lose a lb. So you're taking in an extra 4200 calories a week. So if you cut those out you should lose at last a lb a week. But for someone who is drinking that much and trying to stop you may find yourself snacking more or wanting sweets which is going to cancel out some of those calories. I suggest buying some sugar free hard candies to have on hand if you need them. Coming from a family of alcoholics I urge you to get help if you need it. Don't let it t

    Uomograsso reacted to AZhiker in Preop   
    I cried in pre-op - wondering if I should get off the stretcher and just leave, I was so scared. My surgeon came in and was so kind. He said, "None of my patients have ever come back saying they wished they had not had surgery. You are going to be fine and you are going to have a new life." I just needed that little boost of confidence.
    It is normal to be scared. It means you know that you are making a huge, life changing decision. NOT having the surgery has more dire consequences for your health and life than having the surgery. It's just a door you have to walk through. Once you do, you will also find a new life on the other side.
    I once asked my PCP if I should just try it on my own one more time. Her words spoke the truth, "If you COULD have done it, you WOULD have done it by now."

    Hit a stall last week, they are bound to happen. I actually gained 0.6 lbs over last Friday's weight, but still under 300 lbs. NSV, I bought a couple of 2XL shirts in December as I had a bogo coupon. Put one on today and it fits! I haven't worn 2XL shirt in about 20 years.
