Good to know I'm not the only one feeling like this. Less than four hours before I head out the door to the hospital. I think we'll both do great.

Ya it was very painful initially, but the staff are nice here. I realized I can't drink anything cold. Because my stomach cramps like death. Otherwise I'm doing ok. They said I needed insulin and now u might be anemic. Both of which I never had before surgery

Brings back some memories. I recall being very concerned as the reality of major surgery and I came face to face. That was 6 months ago. I am down 102 pounds, no longer taking metformin and my doctor is now telling me to quit taking the amlodipene because my blood pressure readings are dropping enough to justify it. I can wear pants that you can buy off the shelf in generally available sizes. It's daunting, but was it ever the best investment I ever made.

They gave me a couple of injections post op that kept me in Shangri La for about 12 hours but I was out of the hospital in less than 24 hours and that was with the gastric bypass.

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
