Recommended Posts

I had a sleeve done on March 23rd. Went from Water on day one. Then I went to Clear liquids before I left which was 5 days got to drink one Protein shake. I knew right off the bat something was wrong. I couldn't take in as much as they wanted me to I began to dehydrate after 3 weeks I went to my urine was unbelievable they tried to stick me with an IV 5 times they couldn't get it that doctor sent me home I was frightened because of the color of my urine. The next day I managed to get squeezed in to see the doctor. Immediately send me to the infusion room 4 to liters of Fluid. The Specialist there who put in IVs tried to stick Me 3 times they were not successful. Now I was in danger my veins were collapsing from dehydration. The doctor said to put in a PICC line which I have now I give myself a bag of Fluid at home everyday my bladder hurts I can't keep more than 2 ounces in my stomach. They did a GI series with a discovered the middle of my small pouch had narrowed and they don't know why and I don't know how they're going to fix it so I'm back on liquids for at least another 3 weeks. Here's a picture of my bladder urinepost-289862-14607745050288_thumb.jpg

My surgeon explained to me that sometimes there can be a narrowing of the remaining stomach; I have experienced the same symptoms, but not to the extreme you have. He explained to me that occasionally that area needs to be stretched out through endoscopy. I hope the best for you. I can only imagine how you just feel.

@@my eyes are hungry If you have a stenosis the simplest way to fix stomal stenosis is with a procedure called endoscopic dilation. Your doctor will perform an endoscopy and inflate a special balloon into the new connection to your stomach, to make it bigger. If that's indeed what is wrong?

Im no doctor but I wish someone had told me that I might not be able to tolerate plain Water. Try apple juice watered down, crystal light, ginger tea ( make sure you strain it), Decaf tea. Using these tricks I was able to get more fluids in. I hope things turn around for you soon!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
