    Hair Loss Treatments

    Heya i have a thyroid so what works for me may not work for you. #1 protein gram above 80 #2 unflavored collagen powder added to drink daily solved it for me good luck
  2. That happens if i do not consume enough protein grams and in my case it is prevented by adding Unflavored collagen powder to my drinks. Hth

    What do you eat in a day?

    At one month I was eating things like over easy egg yolks. Mainly fluidish stuff like that, Protein shakes (orange flavor, and choc w that pb2 powder in it), strained tortilla soups etc.

    rate of weight loss

    For me it really just has varied every week. I know on the days that weight doesnt move that my food hasn't changed so I dont panic about the scale and viola still keep going down. I aim for a monthly goal and try to hit that because the scale can really flux with water, bathroom habits etc on day to day basis
  5. I get hungry but it abates with the smallest portion of anything lol. I would say though im hungry im less hungry than id get prior to surgery
  6. Hey i was on my period for surgery. Nobody cared they seen it before lol. The nurse did make me take of my panty and hygiene item and instead wear a mesh hospital panty into surgery. Post op i was given additional pairs. They dont want you falling asleep w tampon for 24 hours.

    Skipping Purees

    Lol. Boy post op even more aversions come and things i didnt like before taste better now. I was excited to get into puree but only there for a few days before being approved by surgeon to start soft food. During the puree phase i could exchange food with shakes if i wanted because my surgeons plan is about Counting proteins. I think it depends on your plan. You could skate through the whole puree thing with shakes if your surgeon allows. For me though, the shakes i tried before surgery i didnt like after surgery.

    What could it be?

    Hi Dannies you should contact the surgeon who did your surgery if you havent already and let them know your symptoms. They will be able to suggest the next steps for you

    When did you notice the scale moving?

    I dont know where you read 15 perhaps you tagged the wrong person because i wrote 5-15. Hope that helps you

    How many posts...

    That does seem a bit strange lol
  14. The jury is still out. The medical community seems divided about this right now. Some don’t allow cpap Initially post op in the hospital for that reason. I use cpap and have a pouch and others have as well. If you are having stomach problems make sure to consult your surgeon since its his handiwork
  15. Im down some. I plan to continue to donate mine to dress for success. Its a program that helps broke people be able to look nice for work or getting a job.
