    CBD Honey

    Btw for those of you that say weed is an addiction you are being short sited. The medicinal value of THC AND CBD is irrefutable.

    CBD Honey

    I have a medical card and got a tincture from a local dispensary. I really needed it for sleep. At this early stage didn’t want to smoke.
  3. Was the most frustrating thing for me. Was jonesing for veges. Tried at 3 weeks when I started the soft diet. Did spinach in an omelette. Stomach did not like it at all. I am now 12 weeks out and do fine with cooked veges but the raw ones I need to be careful with.

    Try a tincture. It’s a small amount .25 ml delivered sublingual (under the tongue). Takes about an hour to kick in.

    Thanks everyone! I finally got things moving along. I know I have to concentrate on protein first but I also know the importance of some roughage. Last night I added some wilted spinach which I tolerated well. I do not want to use too many laxatives so I’m going to be quite careful on that front. I am going to add colace daily and smooth move tea really helped me. I’ve always been a coffee drinker which kept things moving along. I miss a nice cup of coffee. Tea just isn’t the same lol. Thank you again for your advice. It’s nice to know there are others out there going through the same journey. 👍💨💩
  6. Had my surgery on March 3. I was one of the lucky ones who was able to have gastric bypass surgery before elective procedures have been put on hold because of COVID-19. I’m quite relieved.

    I don’t have answers but what an incredible accomplishment! Congratulations 💗
  8. Three weeks in. Started soft diet this week. Concentrating on protein and fluids. Started colace. And resorted to milk of magnesia today. Any tips on keeping things moving along and not getting backed up? I had gastric bypass surgery on March 3.
  9. I am 3 weeks out from gastric bypass surgery and I am struggling with being able to sleep. Melatonin did nothing. Do hormonal shifts contribute to this? I’ve never had trouble sleeping lol. The only thing that works is taking .25 mg of Xanax but I don’t want to live on that.
