    Vaping pre op

    I dont smoke or vape but the hospitals paperwork for the surgery said obviously to stop that if stopping was too difficult to get the patch or gum or go see the surgeon for some prescription stuff. idk what that is tho.

    Social eating after gastric sleeve

    i dont eat together with family. We all go to our own rooms. But i simply have a tiny portion. 4oz bowl filled with whatever is for dinner and that takes me 30 minutes or so to eat. So far i have not had any issues with anything i have tried. I have coffee without issue but i use sugar free creamer. But yes i always eat the protein first. whatever else is there last.

    Drinking. Enough water!!

    i am almost 5 weeks post op and i still struggle to get enough water in. I do wake up a couple times a night with a very dry mouth and i keep a water container next to my bed. But i know i am not getting enough water by the color of my pee which is what the surgeon told me to watch. water is difficult.

    so today i had to get dressed up for a job interview, getting really bored just sitting around the house all day so i figured i would get a part time job to keep me busy and the only nice clothes i have are some i bought in late March for a funeral. At that time the pants did not fit. I could not close the top button so i used a belt to keep it closed. Today i wore it for the interview and they were too large and even using the belt at the last notch they were not secure and the shirt i wore was one that was too small in late march fit me perfectly today Gotta say i love that. LMAO.

    Throat burns post sleeve

    I have a script for omeprazole. 90 pills at a time. Cost with insurance which i just picked up yesterday was 6 bucks and my insurance does not even pay anything its just the discounted price. If they dont cover it, Use GOODRX. and you will get a decent discount. After surgery i did get a stronger medicaton for 30 days called pantropazole 40mg and was told to stop taking omeprazole until thats finished.

    LOL true true. I personally like to know things. I have done so many different blood test that i bought lab orders for online just because i like to know lmao

    you could go to your primary care and get a lab order for different allergy test to see if you can find out what you are now allergic to. I did several blood test last year for certain types of food (all came back negative) but also can test for things you breath in.

    Endoscopy aftermath

    odd. I had one last year an endoscopy and colonoscopy. yea they pump you full of air but that only lasted for me a couple hours after. I had to fart and burp to get it out lol but no jaw issues

    Throat burns post sleeve

    Time to schedule an endoscopy. For me it was only in my chest but that was just a few days after surgery.

    Blah...my first stall...

    Yup. I got into my first stall at week 2. It sucked. It lasted about 2 weeks. But since then i have lost 6lb since my last weigh last week. So i am out of the stall. Just ride it out and soon enough it will pass

    yup everyone is different. We all loose at different rates. Some are quick, Some are slow. Its just the way it is. Just stick to your plan and enjoy life.

    We cant tell you that. Every program and insurance have their own requirements. So you need to check to see what yours is. BUt very doubtful. Wear a weight belt when they weigh you lol
