has anyone gotten sick since their surgery? I have bronchitis and the couch medicine that the doctor prescribed made me dump. So I get no relief from coughing. I am so miserable.

Have you tried allergy medicine?

I haven't had dumping issues with any meds. But one normal dose of night time cold and cough medicine got me drunk. That was a first for me. They do make diabetic friendly (sugar free) adult cough medicine.

I have now learned that I should take half a dose and wait 30 minutes to take the other half. The sugar content is crazy. Next time I will ask for sugar free.< /p>

I haven't been on here in a while. But I am doing great. I have lost about 73 pounds and have about 75 to 80 ponds to go. I have had 3 scopes (egj) and dilations. I feel like I am not losing fast enough. I see the doctor in July for my 6 month check up. Overall, I am so happy I did the gastric bypass. I had my g tube removed in May I was so happy to finally get that thing out. I had it for 4 months. I didn't think I would ever get it out! I am drinking Premier Protein shakes, I get them at SAMs club. They have 30g Protein in 1 shake and I like them so I will stick to them. I use a lot of recipes from theworldaccordingtoeggface.com and bariatricfoodie.com. My new favorite recipe from eggface is coconut cream pie oatmeal! It is delicious. I highly recommend these 2 website for recipes high in protein and low calories. You will love them if you haven't tried them yet! I still have trouble getting 64ounces of Water in a day. But work everyday to meet my goals.

Hi all

1/27/14

Physically doing good. Is anyone having issues with depression? I'm bipolar. Have been all my life. I was on meds prior to surgery and doing okay. I'm still on my meds. I feel like the bipolar is still under control but the depression has gotten pretty bad. My shrink retired in May. I got upset with my therapist right before surgery and hadn't gone back. I started to realize the signs. I saw the wls therapist. She wanted me to start going to support groups. Appt with a new shrink to go over my meds, maybe adjust dosage due to weightloss but not until October. Appt with therapist next week.

Trying to figu

congrats on the pregnancy! I cant believe its been over 8 months since my wls. I havent lost any weight in the last month and a half. I would like to loose 30 more pounds, but my hunger levels have returned, and im stuggling to keep from gaining. I feel much better, but have to accept the fact, that i must be diligent to stay on top of this!

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...
