I’m doing well, I feel I’m a bit on the slow loser side but at least it’s coming off. And I guess to be expected since I am a revision. Best thing I can tell you is to walk as soon as you can. And as much as you can. Don’t worry about anything in the beginning except walking and Water. They gave me these little one ounce cups and I would line up 5 at a time. With each lap of the living room I’d take a shot. And repeat. It was the only way I could get liquids in.

Good luck! Let us know how it goes and walk walk walk!

I had SIPS surgery on 10/18/17 in Kentucky. Still getting use to things I can and cannot eat. Have gas a lot and the smell is bad.

Need to find out the name of pills to take to reduce the gas. I do Water aerobics about 4 times a week. Love is.

My Iron is low so trying to fix that.

Good luck with your surgery

Charcoal pills help with the gas! In the beginning months I used them daily til it got better.

Hello!

I did, 08/30/17.

So far, I'm pretty happy with everything!

I'm a revision from band to SIPS, as well.

Best of luck to you!

I was scheduled last January for SIPS, surgeon got in there and had to pull out due to enlarged liver. I had to lose 30+# before he would consider trying it again. I checked in with a liver specialist and was diagnosed with non alcoholic fatty liver. I am hoping for a go Monday.

This pre-op diet is rough this time around. Contrive and Probiotics have been my friend...

Thanks for all the well wishes.

      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

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
