    Nails and hair

    Has anyone noticed that since they take vitamins on a daily basis, their nails and hair on legs, arms, etc grow faster? My nails have even been harder and don't break so easily. I would like the leg hair to please fall out. I have to shave every day. I used to go a couple days in between. Sent from my SM-G991U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Unsupportive Boyfriend

    I was reading this and just stopped and ran up and gave my husband a huge hug. He is so supportive of me and the surgery. He knows this isn't the easy way out but he said "wouldn't you want your girlfriend or wife to have it easy" and he is right. I know this isn't easy and you had a lot of issues afterwards. But if it were easy, I would wish that on you. I hope you have left this guy and moved on. If not, I hope he has come to terms with your weight loss.

  4. I started a little higher. At the beginning of my journey, I weighed 463. My surgery was August 25 2021 and I weighed 430. I'm 5 weeks and 3 days post op and I weigh 382. I have lost a total of 81 pounds since May 2021, 47 of that is post op. I feel bad talking about my weight with people who start much lower. I have seen comments where they are so defeated because they haven't lost like I have. I wish there were support groups for each weight loss group. Sent from my SM-G991U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Return to work?

    I work from home taking phone calls. My Dr gave me 3 weeks off and I took one week off pto. I had extreme dizziness, and it finally cleared up this week. I'm 4 weeks po and just started back to work 2 days ago. I don't have pain but I have no energy. Sent from my SM-G991U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Thank you I'm going to give it a couple more weeks. I don't go anywhere so I can deal and try to get in better foods. I know I need to push liquids more. I'm not dehydrated but it wouldn't hurt. Sent from my SM-G991U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I hope it does too. Right now I'm stalled with my weight because I'm not burning off enough calories. I wish talking burned calories, I would be so skinny. Sent from my SM-G991U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Right! I hate that a shower tires me out. I want to enjoy it but most of the time I'm thinking about sitting down. Sent from my SM-G991U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I know I have to try to push through this but I figured it took a while to get on the weight it will take a while to get rid of it. Naps are my life now. Sent from my SM-G991U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Energy

    No, I stopped coffee about 3 months prior to my surgery. I just wanted to be prepared earlier. I think it is lack of calories. I'm trying to up those but it is so hard. Sent from my SM-G991U using BariatricPal mobile app

    BM question

    Oh no, I have been close to that happening!! My new model is, don't trust a fart. I have become very close with my bathroom. I straighten up stuff, while waiting for this to pass. I'm just going to roll with it. Sent from my SM-G991U using BariatricPal mobile app

    BM question

    That's what I thought. I was surprised when it first happened, because I was totally prepared for constipation. I thought about lactose, so I started taking a lactose pill before I ate, still happened. Then I went 2 full days without any dairy, still happened. It's just weird.

    BM question

    Is it normal to have explosive diarrhea everyday after surgery? I'm still on the all liquid diet. I first thought it was dairy, so I cut that out. Now it's anything I eat, besides water. I'm not nauseated. I'm scared to leave my house because when it hits, I got to go now. I'm not dehydrated. I'm getting in the water. Oh and I recently started getting dizzy spells.

    Thank you. I should have figured that out lol. I was worried about my iron levels. I was anemic before my surgery and my hematologist doesn't want me to take iron pills. Nothing else would suggest it was low iron. Sent from my SM-G991U using BariatricPal mobile app
