Be careful with reglan! It can give you.... uh.... weird side effects.... in your boobage. Especially if you've had a baby before.

I speak from extremely awkward experience :(

I don't mean to be rude or anything, but there is one thing I am curious about.

Dr. Aceves keeps his patients on liquids for 3 weeks. He said eating before 3 weeks puts too much pressure on the new tummy and can cause a leak. I know all doctors have different post op diets. How long were you posst op before you started eating rather than only drinking?

I hope the new medication is helping you feel better !

It can cause lactation. Which is totally awkward when you're out to dinner with friends and all of a sudden your boobs are leaking all over your shirt.

jasleeve, I've been offline a lot the last few days. DARN that real life stuff anyway! :) I'm glad that you're on your way to having the leak heal, but was really upset to see that you've had to go back to ER again! I'm truly hoping that the Reglan pills help the acid issue very quickly.

I think you're doing a good job of keeping things real for yourself and in your posts here. Yeah, you sound upset, but I would be upset, too! (((Hugs))) to you and I'll keep you in my prayers.

i woke up in the middle of the night (2am) to throw up again. its crazy!!! the nausea actually wakes me up out of my sleep & i try to go back to sleep but cant until after i throw up. then i woke up at 6 wanting to throw up again but i fought it since it wasnt that strong of a sensation. & whenever i throw up, its bile.

:(

something tells me, im going to be throwing up daily for a long time! i actually want to throw up now & i have diarrhea.

i truly feel so bad for people who are jumping on this train! if only they knew what they could possibly be getting themselves into! i want to tell them to run & go sign up for a gym & just do the hard work because this right here is not the way!!!!!

i wouldnt wish this on anyone. i feel so sick. & i know my friends are tired of hearing me complain about it so i try & stay to myself but damn!!!! i dont know how much more i can take. they say ill get better but im getting worse!!!! & they said the stent has to stay for 4-6weeks. i thought i was already 2 weeks in! im not. im only 1week & 2days in! this is TORTURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it has even crossed my mind to switch to bypass to just get past this part! i cant deal with this feeling! my goodness :(

*****UPDATE****** feb 2nd, 2012

i now have a leak & a stent was placed in. feeling horrible!!! the below post is the least of my worries now!

im going crazy.. :(

i was sleeved dec 20th. everything was ok until maybe a week after coming home from the hospital. i realized that i was extremely exhausted and always felt faint. it didnt really start hitting me hard until last week. everyone keeps telling me that it will get better but it feels like its getting worse! i keep trying to "stay positive" but how much more of this can i take? i want to feel normal again!!!!

i noticed that when i walk, im like dragging my feet. im so weak and faint. almost like my thighs might just give out.

i also have excessive gas which i think is making me really nauseous. the burps are just crazy. i cant eat or sip without burping.. then it wont stop until i take some gas x chewables. i live off those chewables.

as far as shakes, i cant tolerate them. ive tried so many different ones & i throw them up. they absolutely repulse me!

i do eat but i have to be "in the mood" to eat whatever is in front of me or i will just throw it up. my stomach is extremely weak! i cant even tolerate Soups. they turn my stomach too.

i called my surgeon & told him how im feeling & he told me im dehydrated. told me to get on gatorade for a week & see how i feel then. im going in thursday morning to see the nurse practioner.

the gas & the gatorade mixed is making me very nauseous.

i take 20mg of prilosec in the morning, 2- Multivitamins & 1- B12.

im so so so so so so tired of this! i truly regret surgery. i never thought id feel like this but i do. :(

sorry to hear that your sleeve isn't doing so good for you, hopefully it will get better. i have been fortunate that i have had no complications or problems except a little GERD. Good Luck.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
