That is soooo awesome!! I so so hope for those kinds of results!! I know for sure I wouldn't qualify for insurance coverage-I'm 130 lbs overweight but totally healthy AND we are switching insurance July 1st so that gums that up. My sister just lost her insurance so we decided self pay was the way. Totally researched everything and am very comfortable with the whole situation. I live off 78 just past the fairgrounds on Slayton Settlement. My son is good friends with Ele Eckert-whose family lives on Reger. I would love to pick your brain sometime if you're ever available for coffee...(or a Protein shake!). :)

Hi, I am from Hamburg, NY. I have my surgery date scheduled June 26 with Dr. Posner at BGH. I am excited but nervous. The process did not take nearly as long as I anticipated. Have been on the south beach diet since March and have lost 20 lbs so far.

Yes we do! Why are you being resleeved? I know how you are feeling. I originally had the band. On top of feeling sick all the time I felt like a total failure when the band didn't work for me. I hope you have better luck this time. When is your surgery?

It'll get better each day. Just keep sipping and make sure you're not taking gulps of Fluid. Mix it up and have some sugarfree Jello with u or popsicles. Try getting your Protein dtink on before u leave for work and on the way.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
