Hi, Guys I just had the balloon in place on Jan. 6th. It has not been a very pleasant experience to say the least. Day 1 I vomited all day & have done so many other times since. My doctor has told me to drink a lot of Water and 80 grams of Protein a day plus lots of veggies. I cant seem to do any of it without getting sick. Everything seems to sit heavy on my stomach constant acid reflex. I have to sleep on my back elevated or i will get sick. Are any of you having any of the same problems? Do any of you know how many cc of Fluid they put in your balloon? Im beginning to wonder if mine is to much? I feel VERY weak and cant do much without feeling exhausted quickly. I also have not lost any weight in the last week. I get so weak that my husband has to help me a lot to shower get dressed etc. Don't know what to do. :-(

Ugh Im envious of your experience. I start school on Tuesday and am crossing my fingers I'll be able to endure it :( I know I'm not drinking enough fluids and I've barely started a full-liquid diet just today (day 4). I feel incredibly week and am miserable. Such a Debbie downer right here!

Tomorrow I go back to work and I'm really worried. I hope your day went well.

I have been on 15 mg for a week and today went up to 30. My appetite has decreased some but it's suppose to really work on this dose. We shall see

I really hope it works!

Much better after the first week , down 16 lbs 7 days , probably from not eating . Just did not want to eat felt full all the time.

After this first week I feel pretty good now. Had an egg salad sandwich but threw out the bread for lunch and about 3 oz of salmon with some peas for dinner . Will top the night off with a little applesauce and cottage cheese for desert .

Hi Jeff - what's the latest? :-) Are you about to have the balloon removed? What was your overall experience? Hope it all turned out well!

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!
