Beginning the two weeks of liquid hell next Monday;)


Same here. You've set up a good expectation of the process. Better to expect it to be hell and pleasantly surprised if it is not.

Is there a story how you met? He's not exactly,the boy next door although there is a Melbourne Fla. April hmm sounds like a good time for surgery, our spring& your Autumn. Sure do hope every thing works out well for you. So where in Oz is your surgery going to be? Melbourne or somewhere else? I guess I'm a nibby old biddy but I like to know these things. Texting people overseas I guess is my way of traveling the world.

We met online in a general chat room (not a dating website). Chats turned to phone calls, which turned in to holidays and marriage. Married in Melbourne Australia and we moved back to the states at the end of the honeymoon. Unfortunately only been home to visit Australia once in almost 17 years of marriage.

Hopefully your date is March!

        Does anything blow up? That's usually a requirement for me B)

        lol no but lots of things get broken

      In prep for my 1 year follow up the surgeon sent me for lab work and my B6 came back way way to high. So they asked me to stop taking B6. so now i am looking for a way to cover the B vitamins without B6. I was taking a sublingual multi B liquid.

        That's weird that you take them all in one dose and only one gets elevated. Maybe they should repeat that particular blood work?

      2. allwet

        did a search both on this site and google and found a lot of hits on just that issue - high B6 when taking multi B supplement. Including 1 NIH study that found 17/68 sleeve patients in the study had elevated B6.

        going to stop the liquid multi B and just use the chewable Centrum Silver for a few months then retest

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        That's interesting. Is it just a sleeve issue or is that just what you were searching for?

      4. allwet

        on this site it was sleeve specific but on google it was more wide spread among people that were daily users of supplements and the gov't study was a sleeve study for vitamin deficiencies that found oddly B6 went up more than it went down post op

      NSV: yesterday a business man came into to see one of the bosses. He gave me a candy bar first and then the paperwork. I said I would be sure to give to supervisor. he says no candy is for you. I said its ok, he was , NO ITS FOR YOU. I said thank you , that I had had weight surgery so I tend to stay away from candy. He looked at me up and down and said you don't need surgery (probably didn't understand what I had said).  It's nice knowing that I look fit enough to where I would not need one, lol. Working out 25 out of 31 days definitely helps!

      Day 1 of the pre-op liquid diet is underway. I was able to have my last cup of coffee for a while this AM and have been drinking Vitamin Water Zero and water since, I definitely have to pee a lot!
