First Fill And I Went Down



Recommended Posts

Yes I have to lay down with cold wash cloth on head with head lower wen I get my fills. It's a needle thing and my blood pressure drops rapidly. Google P.O.T.S. postural orthostatic tachacardia syncope its a physical thing stemming from specific things. It sounds weird, my fear is needles, funny I'm getting better about not fainting if I just prepare myself. I get embarassed and have passed out once...get clammy and hot.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
