    REGRET

    Eventually I will feel “normal” and be able to eat normal foods, just less of them, which is what I wanted from this. I wanted to be able to eat normally- binging & having multiple servings like I did was not normal. I said those same words to the psychologist in april and was deferred indefenitly as an eating disorder and said I was not likely to not follow the post op diet on oct 15. learned it pretty closely have been living it for last month or so. down 52 lbs. o well we'll see. love my reaquired physical abilities . :)
  2. Now jumping through hoops Per surgeon /PCP/ Psyc med group( Holeman Group ) to get re-eval & psyche treatment . probably won't know what's up for 1-3 weeks ( the old "don't call us we'll call you ) . lol
  3. The surgeon's Psychologist , I'm a medi-cal patient.
  4. See my PCP today , I was to secure/honest and possibly flippent in my answers. THe eval was done in April. Wish I knew then what I know now. I may have unwittingly admitted to binge eating or other behavior considered an eating disorder. It may be some counseling or therapy or something easy like that for a few months . I will try to find out today. Thx

    October sleevers?????

    protein and fluids are mostly absorbed or passed in the urine. Probably not enough cumulative solids or fiber to make a poopy yet. Tell your doc if it goes on a few more days.
  6. My surgery was stopped indefinitely by the psychologist after losing 50 lbs and passing all med tests. what shold I do ? verry upsetting, they gave no explanation other than we dont think you will follow the diet.

    Drinking Post Op

    100 lbs in 6 months ! Holy Cow, How ?
  13. OMG ! Looks like someone really really loves chicken ! lol Great job !
  14. Don't worry. You won't . Your much smaller stomach and hormonal changes sort of prevents you from eating too much.
  15. OUTSTANDING ! How did you lose 100 lbs in 8 months ? How do you feel ?

    REGRET

    So many small things at - 50 Lbs +, put on socks, boots, tie laces unassisted, old expensive cloths /watches become new again, wipe your Own butt wthout cheep Amazon Tongs lol, A1c BG Bp goes down , O2 sats improve, etc ect. Yes those bouts of depression suck ! It has a lot to do with the surgery and weight loss hormonal changes . I am a big tough ex military guy and got overcome by a wave of depression and almost started to cry over nothing, couldn't finish my work out and had to go home. I try to treat them as I have with old Adderall panic ( after I quit ) attacks telling myself I'm ok it's just catecholamines. Catecholamines are hormones made by your adrenal glands, which are located on top of your kidneys . Examples include dopamine; norepinephrine; and epinephrine (this used to be called adrenalin or adrenaline). Your adrenal glands send catecholamines into your blood when you're physically or emotionally stressed. Best wishes.
  18. How are you getting protein fluids and meds , do they tell you what the new stomache capacity is , are you on pain meds, blood thinner shots ? It sounds like you are doing really well. Congrats. My pre op is next week.

    December 2018 Sleevers!

    Can the surgeon repair an epigastric hernia at the same time as performing the VSG ? I'm hopping to get VSG in 2-4 weeks. Down 50 lbs but still 310.

    Do I make the cut?

    So its 10/01/19 . What did you decide ?
  24. Those injections can save your life. Just like Insulin shots . I did it twice after hip replacement and will request it again if not offered after VSG. Normal post op meds. DO IT ! lol
