Hey everyone just wondering...



Recommended Posts

When did you stop being scared that a stitch was gonna burst or is it just me? My surgeon keeps reminding me not to push it as they can pop (not that I would ever do something like that I’m still on the soft food stage one month out of ESG, but would love to hear if any of you felt the same !

Oh, I was terrified. If I ate too much I would get sick and be like, "I'm gonna die. I am greedy. This is what I get. My life is over and a lie" lol I am extra dramatic. It was not until maybe my 6th month, did I start to not worry as much. However, it is still something that concerns me when I eat too much.

Lol it so hard, I still don’t know what it feels like to be full I’m terrified to eat more than a few bites although sometime I still feel “hungry” idk, is there ever a chance of the stitches not popping or is this something we deal with forever my surgeon didn’t make it clear to me !

PinkMints, great question. I was very worried about stitches loosening or breaking, this lasted until my 6 week appointment following ESG. Had a good discussion with my Dr and he helped me to know that at that point "everything was solid" and the only occasion to worry about something breaking was in the case of vomiting. His simple rule was if you eat a food once and have a difficult time digesting it then just remember that and don't go back to eat that food again. I've only had one real issue with some sautéed mushrooms that I tried one evening when eating out. Too much oil/butter/garlic for me to take, so strike those from the menu.

Great to hear the experiences of others on this one.

My doc said the same-- 6 weeks everything should be good to go. Your stomach heals very quickly.

That being said, the first five weeks I was constantly worried about it lol. I think it's normal. You don't know what's going on in there!

It’s been a month tomorrow. And I’ve been on fluids I tried soft foods but still can’t tolerate it yet.

I was pretty good till I started adding solid food. I found pork is not a good choice it take too long to digest and a salad isn’t the best for me. Avoiding those

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
