    Constant heartburn

    That happened to me. Told my surgeon, and he put me on omeprazole. It's been helping.

    Don't Want to Tell Family with a Twist

    There are many people (including my mother) I am not telling for various reasons. When I eventually see them, I will likely use the "medically supervised diet" explanation, as it is not a lie.
  4. Welcome to the "losers' bench" I am really sorry you had to go through so much from such a young age. I started gaining weight after starting birth control pills my senior year of high school. People started wondering (not so silently) if I was pregnant, when I was still a virgin at the time. Ugh... went up and down in weight my entire life. The only times I could successfully lose was if I had something SIGNIFICANT coming up -- wedding, HS reunion, etc. Tired of the up and down, and adding in pain from fibromyalgia and foot/ankle complex issues, I got determined and got sleeved this year on 2 Nov. It's been... interesting... but I am doing fairly well so far, and looking forward to being able to MOVE better! I already experience FAR fewer fibro flares, and my foot isn't aching 24/7. Looks like you're doing great so far!! ❤️

    My multivitamin has never made me nauseated... I take it after I eat. It's a capsule, and I think it is called Shinyleaf. I got them on Amazon. The calcium I got, however, made me SOOOO nauseated. I use the yummy chews now. Bariatric Fusion in the vanilla flavor (though I got a sample pack from my dietician in 4 other flavors, and they were all pretty good!)

    Timing of multivitamin

    Both my surgeon and my dietician said tablets and capsules are fine. They don't want their patients taking gummies or softgels, though. I've been tolerating the multivitamin just fine, thankfully. I did NOT tolerate the calcium I had, though. I'm now taking soft chews for that. Sent from my SM-T290 using BariatricPal mobile app

    How Often Do You Weigh Yourself?

    I can't wait until mine is all green like yours. Mine is mostly red hahahaha! I am so thankful you mentioned this in my scale post a while back, though. I love this scale!

    How Often Do You Weigh Yourself?

    Since I got my scale (about a month before surgery) I weigh every morning after I use the bathroom. I am aware that there are fluctuations due to many things, so I don't freak out if it doesn't move or it goes up a smidge I am approaching 3 weeks post-op, so I anticipate a stall here soon...

    OMG you guys... I am sure this has been done before, and I thought about doing it a while ago, but only just tried it today. I am getting my water and my protein in at the same time now! I took my water bottle, added a scoop of unflavored protein, shook it to death, then added some Mio, shook it again, and it is... ACTUALLY TASTY! I am so excited that I will finally be able to meet those goals easily ❤️

    What is restriction?

    In the case of a sleeve it is the physical restriction you get after the surgery. Your new stomach (pouch/sleeve) is only ~20% of the size of the old, so it is restricted in the amount you can eat.

    I'll check that out shortly... but I was given guidelines, and suggestions. They suggested opurity vitamins, but with the guidelines, I searched a bunch of different types on Amazon, and this is the one I chose 🙂
  13. So I'm supposed to start taking my supplements tomorrow. My nut said to take the Multivitamin with food so I don't get nauseated. It's a capsule, so I need to take with water... Do I wait until I am supposed to drink Water again (30 min after eating), or just go ahead and take a small sip to swallow the capsule while I'm eating? [emoji848]

    I'm freeee! Being sent home tonight with oxygen (I live at a higher elevation than the hospital, and I needed it here, so... Yeah.) Just waiting for hubby to pick me up. I've never needed O2 before, so this is interesting, but if it helps, I'm all for it.

    I feel ya... My surgeon wants me to stay until tomorrow. I'm glad I'm in a room by myself...
