      Oh yes, I so get it!

      I can bend over and do up my shoes without huffing and puffing.

      If I put one hand above my shoulder and one hand up my back, my hands can JUST meet....therefore I can scratch the middle of my back 🙂

      My boobs don't flow over my bra....

      Funny NSV!

    Hello its been 6 months and my acid reflux has improved greatly, I have not had an episode in over 2 months but I do still take one PPI daily. I was told by my surgeon that after this month I should be able to discontinue my PPI.

    Husband's

    Let me start by saying I really love this man , But..... since deciding to have WLS every time I bring up the surgery or things concerning it he is always being shady or condescending. I really wanted him to be happy and to support me but I see that its just not gonna happen. He keeps saying all of this is just happening too fast, and the kids are starting school. LISTEN DEAR, I have been everything to everyone for many years and now its time for me, you can handle 1 weekend without me step your game up man. Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Anyone go into surgery alone?

    I just had surgery alone due to covid on sept 4th, and like you i was very scared by after surgery I felt so terrible I was kinda glad to be alone and just be still and quiet. I just took everything 1 day at a time. TODAY 30 days later I feel amazing. Good luck to you dear. Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app

  18. 7 days and still on liquids, let me tell you it ain't fun at all. The pain from surgery is almost gone but the idea of continuing to drink liquids all day is really taking a toll on me idk, I feel no energy and sometimes get dizzy. Its mental strength that I need i am driving myself crazy, but I know this too shall pass.

    Anyone for September 2020?

    9 days post opp, my 1st appointment with my surgeon is tomorrow morning hopefully they will move me right on into puree stage. All my insisions are doing great and no longer hurt. It's really hard to get this water in sipping and sippin, I really want to just take a big ole gulp.

    The Waiting Game

    Seriously if I were you I would gather all my documents and find another surgeon, before you approval and the things you have completed not are not valid, in some stated I know Maryland things need to be within 30-60 day and you have already done to much to have to wait on a Doctors office thats not working in you favor there are plenty of WLS out there . After I submitted to the insurance and got an approval I was scheduled for surgery less then 48 hr later and here I am 8 days post opp. Keep your head, but be vigilant its your health and life.
  21. When I tell you I have so Many mixed feelings It would be an understatement, So happy and grateful to have finally had my surgery But post op is not a joke there are a lot of hurdles you have to going over and I'm taking it slow drinking water walking and pain management are some of the few things I hope soon all I'm gonna remember is good stuff because right now it's really hard.

    Day 3 post opp

    To be honest that 2 day in the hospital is just a guess, the pain i experienced was immense and I needed all the time they would give me in the hospital just to get me my mind and body together. I still don't have any regrets but I don't wanna fool anyone into thinking this was a cake walk. It was hard as hell and still is but hopefully as the days pass it will get easier. Good luck with your surgery. Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app
  24. OK day 3 the pain is getting better but you have to stay up all your pain medication most of the gas is gone but I'm still in the hospital which sucks I have not eaten anything in 3 days I have however been drinking my Water and clear ensure, I felt them a ball of emotions right now I'm happy and I'm sad I'm just everything

    Day 3 post opp

    No I didn't have any complications, I did however have a drain that they needed to be removed before I could be released, other than that I was not nauseous or sick. I am still on a full liquid diet which is proving to be pretty hard i dont know what eles I can eat besided broth for breakfast/lunch & dinner. Sent from my SM-G970U using BariatricPal mobile app
