  1. He did, but I can’t remember. I go Wednesday for my recheck and all ask what the % is.
  2. I finally had my surgery on 6/24, (postponed from 4/1, thank u Covid). This surgery went 100000 times better then, then my first surgery in 11/2016 w the sleeve. I had a completely different doctor, hospital staff & support system thru my doctors office, this time. I woke up w achey pain, nothing to severe. The incision where they went in for the hernia and a lower right abdomen one were kinda sore, but nothing Ice packs couldn’t help. Came home the next day, & still nothing to severe pain wise to use anything higher then Tylenol. I’m nervous, to get over the recovery period and on to losing weight. (The sleeve was a fail for me and only lost 40lbs on it). But also excited and ready for this next chapter & life style change. :)
  3. I’ve bought the unflavored unjury protein powder and mix it in w my mash potatoes, soups, anything really. I’m not big on shakes or smoothies so I found that, that works pretty well for me.

    Revision completed

    Ur welcome. That’s good that your starting to feel better. The tubes are what I’m worried about. 😳idk y. My mom had drainage tubes when she had surgery and they grossed me out, so that probably why & what’s making me the most nervous.

    Revision completed

    I hope you feel better soon. Hang in there, it takes time to get better. 🙂 I hv my revision on June 24, and I’m starting to get kinda nervous. I have a hiatal hernia to hv fixed and then gastric bypass. Do they put drainage tubes in ur stomach for a revision?
  6. Finally, got a new surgery date no thanks to Covid-19. Was suppose to go from sleeve to gastric bypass, along with fixing a hiatal hernia on 4/1, which I so need. I’m over pain & acid reflux. So fingers crossed 6/24, is it. 🤞🤞Not how I wanted to spend summer, but it’s better then not at all, looking at the positive side of it. Who knows where I live summer could be cancelled to. 🙂
  7. What’s a good food/calorie tracker that you use or have tried? I’m going from sleeve to bypass in a month.

    Food tracker

    I had my info data breached off there last year. So I’m alittle nervous about using that one again.
  10. I’m going from the sleeve to the bypass, and my doctor said becuz it’s medically necessary my insurance will cover it. Which mine is w acid reflux and a hiatal hernia, that needs to be fixed. I would talk to ur doctor.
  11. So sorry to hear that happened. I’m a bit nervous for my surgery which is the revision to bypass and hiatal hernia and acid reflux, I had my gallbladder bladder out in Dec. I’m glad u are doing better and caught it in time. ❤️

    Converting Sleeve to GB RNY

    I’m having this same revision done, it was scheduled for 4/1/20, but has been postponed. Have u lost more weight after getting the bypass compared to the sleeve?
  16. Yes.... mine was suppose to be April 1st. But I’d rather be safe.
