Sorry, I just saw this. I'm very sick and the doctors are still figuring it out. It's gotten to the point where most food I'm unable to keep down. I'm weak and tired.

I am so sorry, Matty. Was very unlike you to go missing and had me worried. Please take care of yourself and keep us in the loop when you are able.

Sending good vibes and wishes for healing.

They'll get it figured out...I'm sure they will. So sorry you have to go through this, though.

Hang in there.

And add my good wishes to the mix, this is not the development we all hoped for. All my Piladelphia Deaming involved good things for you, I'm sorry but I'm getting a... . little scared.😢

Geez, Matt, I am sorry. I hope this isn't rude to ask: have they considered alternative nutrition? One of my colleague's wife chose to have her stomach removed because of genetic findings, and that is how she got her nutrition for a few months. Again, I am so sorry, and please keep us posted -- we care.

I don't really know what the future holds. At this point, I hope it is not cancer. I had pretty persistent nausea pre-surgery but never really did anything about it. I think I might be paying for this mistake. Well, Monday I will hopefully learn a few more things. I am sorry to be a Debbie Downer but when the surgeon is worried, I would say that's some cause.

      Happy Friday!
      Went to the surgeon this week for my 9 month follow up, a little early. I haven't seen him at my other follow ups (always a PA), besides the one time he called afterwards, but this time he stopped in and made a point to congratulate me. He said I'm doing amazing and to keep up the good work. I've shaved 25 points off my BMI, and down 142lbs at 8 months post op.
      I'm starting to really feel normal, not like a bariatric patient. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing. While I still have good habits, I don't think its  "hard work" anymore. I feel that I have truly changed my lifestyle. My new normal feels really good!
      Hope everyone is doing well.
      Much love,
      Ash

        Congratulations Ash!! That is amazing. I am so happy for you. woot woot :450_trophy:

      2. GreenTealael

        Congrats! I too feel *normal*

        It may be a good thing, I never wanted to struggle at this, and the most successful VETs don't appear to be struggling either...

      3. FluffyChix

        I'm so happy for you!! Congrats Ash on your HUGE accomplishment girlie!!! I'm so thrilled you've learned new ways!!! So glad you feel normal! You are so beautiful!!!

        And I completely agree with Tea, the most successful VETs don't appear to struggle. They just seem to have settled into their lifestyle and live it, day in, day out.

        I also wanna be that girl. :)

        Muah!

      Saw the surgeon yesterday. He is very pleased with my loss thus far. I am averaging about 10 lbs a month. Turns out my nutritionist and my surgeon have vastly differing ideas on how many calories I should be eating right now. Nut put me on 1K a day. Surgeon said nope, they are wrong, go to 800/day. Too bad I have been following what the Nut advised. I could have lost more weight already. Oh well, I will do it now! I am also going to add another day of working out to help break this stall I have been in since 8/28. I am very happy as this week I was able to get into a size XL shirt and I am wavering on pants sizes, but I am wearing a lot of size 18 that are too big or are getting too big. The inches are still dropping off nicely. I saw my parents for the first time after a long time this past weekend (they live out of state) and my Dad who never says anything gave me some super nice compliments. My sister also did...her words as we were trekking through the airport on a long upward ramp were along the lines of "Before the mind was willing but the body wasn't. Now your mind and body are in sync. Before we would have had to have stopped at least once and now you aren't even phased by this." What a great thing to have someone recognize.

        I was there yesterday too! My appointment was at 1:30pm. And its crazy that they told you 800 calories per day, when they told me 1k yesterday, but I've got my own agenda lol.

      2. SleeveinIL

        Were you up here??? I am sorry I missed you. My appointment was at 1:15 so it seems we may have just missed each other!!! When do you see him for the 9 month? Maybe we could meet up and say hi!

      3. AshAsh1

        Oh my gosh, that's a gag... we literally just missed each other! It was technically my 9 month appointment, even though I'm only 8 months post op. I missed my 6 month, so I went a month early to my 9 month. I probably won't be back up until my year appointment, but if I come sooner, I'll be sure to let you know!
