    Welcome! which surgery are you having?
  3. I recommend Premier Protein protein drinks Mango flavored. It is not a shake. YOu may prefer it. It is more like a juice drink.

    Finding the new me

    Wow AZhiker you have so succinctly and eloquently described the mental pain of being obese. I never gotten thin but I try to go against my emotional reaction to withdraw but it is very difficult. People don't see me or don't want to see me. but It try to get out of my own head.

    Happy Anniversary!
  7. The gas issue doesn't effect everyone. I had very little trouble with gas. But if you are really worried call your surgeon and double check. But its probably just gas. It often lands in the shoulders.

    Gas or heartburn?

    You are probably eating too much or too fast and burping is telling you to stop. I sneeze when I have gone to far.

    Exercise for loose skin

    Just Wow!! That is a rotten thing to say to you after all your hard work. I have read on the forums that sometimes skin snaps back somewhat but that can take up to a year. Exercise is a good idea regardless of whether it has the desired effect. See how things stand in a years time and keep up the good work. You have done a stellar job.
  10. Hey Suzczar, You needn't drink protein you don't like. I drank a clear mango flavored protein drink by Premier Protein. It was delicious. Lots of different supplements give something else a try.

    Home again

    Wow Georgette, I am sorry you had to go through that. I hope it has resolved itself now.

    How is everyone holding up?

    I'm in defense and so considered essential. I am a little frazzled about the thought of being exposed to the virus at work. I have an elderly parent to care for and don't want to exposes her to the virus.

    Doctor Referral

    Having comorbidities such as high blood pressure would incline them to okay your surgery in the hopes that the weightloss will help. So I don't think you have anything to worry about.

    Philly Let's Talk!

    Hey Girl! Delco in the house! Jefferson is a great hospital. I am sure you are in good hands. I went to Crozer Chester for my initial RNY. Dr. Katz was good doctor with a great bedside manner. But he is out in Reading now. For my revision to DS, I went to Dr Krecioch at Fitzgerald Mercy. He is a good surgeon but I had an unusual amount of pain post surgery and I felt he wanted to divorce himself from it which was not cool.

    6 days post op

    I swear by Premier Protein premade Orange/Mango clear drink. HIgh in protein. Tastes great.

    Which surgery are you getting? Bypass could make you more tired. What with the malabsorption and dumping. The sleeve doesn't cause malabsoption or dumping.

    Pre op questions

    I had an endoscopy that caused my surgery to be postponed. I had ulcers on my esophagus and had to take medicine and then have another endoscopy to prove that the meds worked. That need to make sure that your in good shape for the surgery. If you have a hiatal hernia they won't postpone the surgery because they will repair it during that surgery. Good luck with your pre op tests!

    Pre surgery liquid carb drinks?

    Never heard of this but it makes better sense recoverywise than the starvation one usually has initially with weightloss surgery. Yes, There are no more self administered pain meds. They are very concerned with patients becoming addicted. This drove me crazy as I was in a lot of pain (which believe me poster is not usual at all) and oxycodone did nothing to stop it. I would have killed for a morphine drip. Don't worry poster my situation is very different from yours I was getting a revision from RNY to SADI and I am sure you will be fine.

    Weight Regain

    I had a big weight gain. I was eating things I shouldn't because my home situation changed. After the 70 lb weight gain. I moved out of the situation I was in. I have lost close to 40 lbs. It took years and I am still trying to get back to my previous weight. Hopefully I will lose 50 Lbs more. To get to a more sensible weight. I had RNY and tried a revision surgery to SADI. It doesn't seem to be doing much good. Maybe I am eating too many calories. I was eating between 1500 to 1200. Now I am eating 1000 to 1200. My doctor wants me to go lower than 1000. I am not sure how you do that without relying on protein drinks. Which he told me not to do. I lost 17 lbs since the surgery 12/4. Most of that was during the preop diet and the initial post surgical time. Any suggestions about this situation are welcome.

    Life Taken Away

    OMG-- That is horrific. I am so sorry. My prayers are with you and I hope you have plenty of support.

    Help with exercise pease

    You can do a lot of exercise from a chair until you are able to get on the floor. I did exercise from a chair post op to get me back into shape from the surgery. Maybe you could see a physical therapist or just look online for chair exercise. Good Luck!

    Quantity of food

    Hi, I am at a standstill with my weight-loss, I want to know what quantity of food do you eat. I don't want to rely on the sleeve to tell me when to quit. I do that now and I want to make sure that isn't the cause of the plateau.
  24. mcfluffington

    Quantity of food

    If you only eat a 1/2 a cup. how many times a day do you eat?
