  2. Happy 46th Birthday Sis Penfield!

  3. I have several matching sets as well as various other tops that match up with the bottoms to the sets. send me a message for more information. These are Cherokee and Disney brands. Most of the tops have the stretchy side panels. Still have lots of wear left in them. Buyer will need to pay shipping fees.
  4. II don't think I can get a refund since I threw away the damn box and all the papers that came with it! lol
  5. Will make you a great deal on 3 containers of Chocolate splendor unjury. Loved this kind before surgery and now I cannot stomach the milk anymore to drink it. Had just purchased these before surgery so that I would all ready to go. I am really bummed.

    Pa sleevers

    I live in Meadville Pa 1.5 hours North of Pittsburgh. 45 min South of Erie, Pa
  7. had my revision on the 13th. Lots of swelling and unable to get any fluids in for a couple days. Lots of nausea/vomiting. Ended up having to stay a week in the hospital.supplemental feedings through a picc line. A very depressing time for me. I am having a terrible time trying to get fluids/proteins in. Very weak and tired feeling alot of the time. Trying to get walking in and trying to stay upbeat but it seems like its getting the best of me. I really didn't mind the unjury shakes before surgery now it's a chore trying to get them down. I feel like Im doing this all wrong.Seeing all the other great posts about how easy getting in the fluids and proteins by so many others has me frustrated. Wondering why I am having so much trouble? Trying to get back to work but am nervous that I won't be able to get through the day with such little energy and low calorie intake. ok, I'll stop ranting now...

    Any March Sleevers?

    I was sleeved 3/13 and am still in the hospital ( frustrated to say the least) lots of nausea and small amounts of vomiting. Started Wed as soon as I awoke and went on and on for hours on end. I wasn't able to get up and walk off the gas pains. They did the leak test the next morning and advise me that the top of sleeve is so narrow and is swollen shut ( no fluid could go in) I would require a longer hospital stay...ugh.. I had the PCA pump for pain. They added two nausea meds to be alternated and also the patch. Had two more leak tests the next two days still with very little passage area for liquids, I was able get minimal water in today. He started me on nutritional supplements through IV one bag last night and another just finished so I am now on 3rd bag. He wants me to try a shake in the am as it sounds like right now. I just want this swelling to go down so that I can go home!! He keeps extending the amount of days I will have to stay and says that more than likely I will go home with this picc line and have to be set up each night to receive these bags of supplements. possibly for two weeks. I am going crazy here. He is afraid that I will go home and get dehydrated very quickly and end up back in the hospital.. I sure hope no one else has to go through this kind of craziness. I was so full of fluids they had to add a diuretic via iv as well.. Finally feeling mu

    Any March Sleevers?

    oh no... they don't know? They will be wondering what is going on with you not touching the fish!! That is an awful long time for pre-op it seems with that BMI. It's interesting to see all the variations from one doc to the next. I will certainly be saying a prayer for you!

    I am only on day 3 of 6 and I am right there with you! I have not cheated.... but my mind keeps thinking about solid food..lol We can do this. How many days do you have left?
  14. I would agree that you probably won't be able to get Insurance to cover and kind of repair/change. Hmm... maybe you will give the Doc a hard time and he will do something for you at no cost...
  15. I agree that small goals is the way to go!! Sorry to hear that you had such a problem with the band. I am thankful that I haven't had any problems with mine. Now, if I can survive this liquid diet I just started today..lol.I have done the protein shakes and can be full with them, it's more of head thing. I just "think" I need solid food. Any of you have any good tips on how you got through this pre-op time or didn't you have to do it? I see there are so many variations of pre- op diets and what length and what they include.
