You may have less to lose than the average sleever. Even if it comes off slowly stay encouraged its happening. I was sleeved the same day as you SW 182' date=' CW 171 talk about slow! We can do this! Hope when I'm able to exercise these pounds will come off faster.[/quote']

Thanks tina ... I know its just hard when you read "50 lbs in 3 weeks" ..lol i literally just read it and wanted some french fries lol but its all a process

Has anyone had a really hard first 2-3wks. I have been so miserable. The first 2wks I had the runs 3x a day. Then since my doc switched me to stage 3 I haven't had a BM in 8 days. My doc doesn't want me to take anything right now but I'm so uncomfortable. I did take gasx but it doesn't seem to be helping.

Prune juice helped me and its natural so no side effects etc. someone else suggested apple juice but that didn't work for me. Good luck!

That's what I'm afraid of. I went from the runs to constipation. They checked me for infection and it was negative but they want me to do another test to make sure it wasn't a false negative but now I can't go. I think I'm only at about 20oz of Water today. I just feel so bloated and swollen that when I drink its worse and starts to hurt cause I feels like I'm forcing water into a place that's full......if that makes sense.

Thanks I will try that. My RN suggested the tea Smooth Move so I'm going to try that tonight.

Try diluted apple juice. It works for me every time.

Has anyone had the BIG stitch finally popped? I can't wait until mine does. How long is the average wait?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
