Yea you would be sick. It sounds like your doctor didn't do the surgery correct.

Who is your doctor?

I just looked up some symptoms for a leak and I don't have them. I do have some tightness around the chest area that started yesterday but other then that I'm completely fine

Are you totally sure you had vertical sleeve surgery? I mean, I'm reading what you're saying and I'm thinking maybe they put you under and didn't do anything?

Well I'm sorry that you feel that way. I didn't make this post to prove anything to you. I simply posted it because I wanted to know if anyone else went thru the same thing.

He did X-rays today's and That's how he came about the reason. I have already requested my surgery pictures today. I do know that I didn't have to drink the leak test stuff in the hospital because they said it was no need. I have a close friend that had the surgery in march of 2012' date=' she referenced me to her surgeon for a second opinion. Once I have all that I need to know I will glad upload pics and paper.

This is not something that I came up with. As I have stated in previous post. I have never felt ANY of the things that you all have felt. I was in weds and out Friday on the treadmill sat and back at work on Monday. With not a on e of Any pain Meds. I walk and or work out 5 days a week. I eat what I am suppose to. I live with someone who had the surgery 6 months before me so if I were eat wrong she would have let me know. Only thing that she has ever said to me was that she thinks that I drink to much Protein. I am very afraid of losing my hair. My doc td me as long as I get my Protein in I should be fine. So I drink protein all day long. Drinking wise I probably get 120 grams a day not including the food I eat.

This is already a stressful thing for me so please please don't tell me I am confused about something that my SURGEON has told me. Weather it be right or wrong I no what was said to me. So I am now taking it to the me t level to get the problem fixed. Once again I just wanted to know of any surgeons I. My area or has anyone ever went thru this before.[/quote']

I am sorry if I offended you I am not accusing you. That's not my intention what I am trying to imply is that maybe you misunderstood what your surgeon told you . That much protein will store as fat you should be getting 60-70 grams a day.

Gained 20lbs?@7wks, starving and eating right out of surgery? Did you compare notes, surgery scars, hospital experience with your roommate who had the surgery 6mos prior?? Did you have the bypass and not the sleeve perhaps??

I think the reason we all are puzzled here is because you and your doctor referred to the stretching of a pouch which typically happens to bypass patients

When are you getting the second opinion? Good luck to you!

Edit: seems like something was wrong from the beginning. I would request my records from the hospital. You should get any films that were made as well. You can then compare those studies to the studies you had at 7 weeks at what time your Dr. Said your stomach was sleeved. Now I would say your dr seems like an idiot but according to OTR idiots don't make it through med school. ( whatever)

All types make it through med school...look up some criminal cases against medical doctors.

Drs are not above being idiots IMO

Or are they above having intent on a procedure but I edited this as to not accuse but only suggest anything is possible IMO

Honestly, I think they put you under and didnt do anything. Do you have stomach scars? Pain when you sit up?

I'd say go for a second opinion and sue the sh*t out of these frauds. They have no right to play you like that. Playing with your emotions, making YOU feel like you failed when in reality it's THEIR fault

What I found odd is your drs medical group offers a "stomophyX" procedure that is new and it fixes failed WLS procedures. I don't know call me crazy but what if they are purposely not doing the surgeries correctly to later milk the insurance companies/patients for more money on this new procedure.

It's on their website. Supposedly it's offered only by a few groups... Them being one

Just a theory

Cause this seems too odd' date=' ya know?[/quote']

I don't know what that is. Wheni asked what else can be done. She said I can set up a special plan with the nut that will be a special case for me. But I will ask them tomorrow

No pain what's so ever. I actually started lifting weights for my arms. I promise you. It's extremely funny for the things I can do compared to the ppl that had the surgery the same time as me.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

        That photo looks like one of my phlebotomy jobs. lol

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
