Veteran forum, for vets a year out?



Recommended Posts

This is in the header of the Vets forum, do you think that is enough? Do we still need to make a sticky? Gastric Sleeve Veteran's Forum This forum is dedicated to veteran Sleevers who are one year or more post-op to discuss issues specific to those who are further along in their journey. Please note: You must be one year out to post or create topics here.

That header does not show when viewing from the apps instead of a web browser. Maybe that is going to be fixed?

Folks....I don't think we need a sticky because very soon there will be software controls limiting member's posting ability in the vets forum. Only those who meet the criteria will be able to post, the site will block all others from posting. They will be able to read only.

The criteria will be 1 year post op and 200 previous posts.

Good to know, Butter. Looking forward to that change and a "back to the top" button!

I didn't even realize it had been changed, but I think it was a great move. The old rule of being 6 months post op was not very accurate in my opinion. Even at 3 years post op, there are still days that I feel I am still trying to figure this thing out!!

I won't...I hope we get it some day. Alex said a while ago that it was on the list of things to be done. We can only hope!

I guess I have been breaking the rules. I am almost 11 months out but have way more than 200 post.

Naughty Buplee! (I'm wagging my finger at you ;) )

I immediately flogged myself for me a flagrant rule breaker. Lol. I guess I broke the rules again by replying to you.

Really? I still haven't found it. Lack of ghrelin has made my eyesight questionable.

I haven't been here forever, don't know if its the new setup or life causing me to nit be online as much. I have really missed the support and info. My hubby had surgery in December, so I'm trying to get back on track with him. I'm staying right at the same weight but still have 10-15 to go. I'm 16 months out, but I'm not sure how many posts I have. Nice to see the banter between some off you still continuing, makes me smile!

Yup, it's really here! I'm on my laptop, not sure if that makes a difference but I've been using it so I'm not seeing things.

As I'm looking around a little more, it looks like the button isn't on the main page. But, I do see it right above where I am typing right now, it's blue writing. It's not one of those fancy "back to the top" buttons that are always on the side of the screen, it's one where you have to go all the way down the page and then click on it.

Maybe some day we'll get a fancy one?

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
