    Mammysm got a reaction from terigetshealthy in Any October 2021 Surgeries?   
    October 25th ..Sadi Surgery?was suppose to have the Sadi but unfortunately I couldn't get it done. There were too many adhesions, I knew that there was a possibility òf this happening or not happening. Ì was disappointed ofcourse. My doctor did remove alot of adhesions in the abdomen. Abdomen is quite sore and bruisec..I go back to my Dr. On Tues. the 14th and will see what he will have to say..I do however still have the sleeve, which I "think" is fine..when talking to my husband after surgery, my husband didn't quite get the information correct...and I wasn't talked to, if I was idon't remember. Anyhow thats my story of my day of surgery...2 weeks of liquid diet. For nothing...oh well I lived through it. Maybe the future will be better.
    Hope they don't want me to go to Nutritionist again and the trainer...I have all that info...just another loop hole. Donna Smith

    Mammysm got a reaction from Sunnyway in Revision surgery: Why will this time be different?   
    Boy do I know how you feel...went in for surgery Oct. 25th , 2021 to have the "Sadi" done...I, too, woke up to find it could not be done because of too much scar tissue..the Dr. did remove some of the scar tissue, guess that's good. I knew there was a chance that this may not be able to be a success because of the scar tissue, most of which is from a couple of abdomen surgeries from yrs gone by. I do however still have the sleeve and it hasn't stretched..but just couldn't succeed with it, very little weight loss..
    Long story short, they sent me home that night, just as sore nonetheless. This was my last chance at Bariatric anything, already had the Lapland, that was horrible, sick so much...but anyhow thought I would get my 2 cents in....and don't know what I will do now...I just did the 2 week liquid diet....with great anticipation..feeling disappointed in Maine...Donna

    Its very hard to stick to the liquid diet...I haven't got too many days left. Had Covid test today...got to be at hospital at 6am on Monday....I'm so not a morning person but for this I will get up...lol.
    I wish you the very best with this journey and it all works out with you ...just remember "Nothing Tastes As Good As Thin Feels" they used to say this at Weight Watchers...and "You Bite-You Write" JS
    Write anytime....I will reply as soon. As I find it sometimes it takes me awhile to find stuff.

    Hello Teri...I'm scheduled for the Sadi on Oct. 25, 2021...are you on a liquid diet . ? I'm on week 2 of it..I am doing ok I guess, I think I get disgusted with the choices (or should I say lack of) so I opt to not eat anything because nothing thrills me....How are you doing with this if you are going this lovely route..
    Long story short...I have tried it all..and this is my last chance to Onederland....I've had the Lapland that was really horrible when I had to carry a Barf bag with me everywhere...ofcourse junk food went down good. Didnt loose a whole bunch. Had that removed...got the sleeve , felt great but didn't loose a real lot with that either ..had it checked, not stretched...just my luck...anyhow...Dr. says this is my last resort....not sure if it can happen..got alot of adhesions and lost some small intestines from previous misfortune....but will see when he looks...I pray it can happen for me..
    And guess that's my story in a nutshell..
    I'm from Maine...relatively healthy for my age...tired of being this big...
    I wish you the very best with your surgery on the 25th...saw you with the same date so grabbed the opportunity...Waiting in Maine

    Mammysm got a reaction from Coexister in Revision from sleeve to bypass 8 days post op   
    Hello...I use saw your note on here, its old but thought, what the heck going to write anyhow. Your story is so much the same as mine.
    I started off with the Lapland, quite some time ago, lost some, not a huge amt. It was such a hard live with, couldn't seem to get the right fill, I spent alot of time throwing up.....had that taken out,got the sleeve, lost a little not a huge about, think I got down to maybe 223, then gained wt. Back..so tried to be real good for awhile My dr. Says the only thing now is the Loop Duodenal Switch...I did all the nutrition appt.s, the trainer, the psyche evaluation, which I ended up paying out of pocket, then I've been waiting and waiting and noone called, then they called the other day and say its been so long (their fault not mine, they had everything ) i wasn't happy but went, so I'm lingering at 260 myself. Now according to her they are suppose to submit it to my insurance and then will set up appt. to make a date. They better I called iurance an it us covered, and he said it takes about 14 days, maybe quicker.if not I will be bugging both of them.
    I bet by now you have everything done. If you don't mind would love o hear from me either by Facebook messaging me DonnaRobbinsSmith. Or by email Mammysm@aol.com. thx for listening. Donna

    This message is for Soli31, I have read your posts and would really like to talk with you, because your circumstances sounds exactly like mine right now. I had the Lapband, had it removed, got the sleeve, very little weight loss, looks like it is too big, the pouch, hoping it can be revised, dr and I are discussing it. Please email me or Facebook me. DonnaRobbinsSmith or Mammysm@aol.com would really like to talk if you don't mind. Had upper GI so far, and the Endoscopy yesterday. Thx. Donna
