Hello Linda, Thank you for your reply. I wanted to try a salad so thanks for letting me know to wait till next week. Have you tried brisket? Were you able to handle this type of meat? What kind of Soups have you tried? Thanks

Hello Oking, I received a lot of information on youtube by watching the Sadi-s guy channel. He did a month to month review for a whole year. I decided to go with the SIPS/Sadi-s LOOP surgery because of its longer common channel for maximum absorption of Vitamins. I did not want to take an extreme amount of Vitamins and I also did not want the smelly gas and poop. I work in an office and I was told that the longer common channel allows the body to work through the process of waste elimination so that I don't have this problem. I also liked the idea of just a single Anastomosis connection instead of two. The loop process made a lot of sense to me and I went for it. I could only afford this opportunity once and did not want to come back years later to find out I needed further surgery because I failed with the sleeve only surgery. So Far so good, I take Calcium, B12 and Biotin and I wear the Vitamin patch. I will go for a 6 month check up and see how by Vitamin levels are and adjust it from there. I hope this helps. Blessings

What is wrong with me???? I go to the store and buy groceries and get things I am allowed to eat then buy too much and it goes bad and I have to throw it away. I was told I could have sugar free fudge pops and bought a box and only ate one. Same thing with sugar free Jello and so on. Just because I can have it, I buy it then don't eat it. I wanted avocados and bought 2 very large ones and by the time I decided to eat one they went bad. I hate to waste food. This is why I am the size I am so then why do I feel the need to over buy food. When I cook I do the same thing I tend to over cook the amount and my husband and I can't even eat it all. I know that my stomach is smaller and can only have a small amount but my mind has not accepted this yet. I then have regret for over buying and cooking. Crazy!!

My surgery date for the sips/sadi-s procedure is on 4-14-16! I'm excited, nervous, and kind of scared. There's not a lot of group forums that support with this kind of procedure...

Hello Losili, Congratulations on your date!!! Since my Sips surgery in January 25, 2016 I am now down 30lbs and feeling great and with energy and no complications. Learning to eat slow and drinking and sipping on Water all day is my biggest struggle.

I am now 6 days post-op. My first and second day after surgery were the worst! I was in immediate pain when I woke up. They were gas pains and mine lasted all day. They were worse than labor pains my opinion at least those came and left for me and it could be pain free if you recieve epidural. But these gas pains were no joke! I was on pain killers and it still didn't ease the pain much. The doctors said to just walk it out theres really not much and gas-x. I had no problem with walking just a couple hours after surgery and it helped. The 3rd and so fourth days are better. I'm in no pain and I had no problem with Water consumption.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
