Honestly, I hate asking my Dr. or his staff about things. But honestly most questions are just common sense.

I hate calling as well. I feel like I'm bothering them over silly things, which I know that I shouldn't feel that way considering the cost of this surgery.

The questions about stalls just absolutely kill me. Have they never been on a diet before? Is their expectation really to lose massive amounts every. single. day.? Have they not read the forum at all where every other post is about a stall?

I get it, stalls are frustrating. In fact this week I managed to gain. But I can't deal with the level of panic.

Why is the big picture so hard?

Why focus on this?

Instead of this?

Ugh. This. My least favorite is becoming I had surgery two weeks ago and I haven’t lost fifty pounds! What’s the matter with me!

I guess I just felt so cruddy the first few weeks post op it didn’t even cross my mind to weigh myself and worry about it so soon.

common sense is a superpower or some such :blink: ...the key is to stick with it, hell I'm losing slowly probably because my hormones are all out of wack etc. I'm on low dose bc to keep PCOS at bay and would like to slowly wean off of a lot of pills I'm on, think of a leveler and the bubble it's all over the place right now, I've not had a honeymoon period but I keep trucking through because the sun will come up tomorrow bet my bottom dollar that tomorrow they'll be sun...

"I heard about stalling on the past, but I didn't think it would happen to me." Well if there was any way to file for an exemption, the line,would be 7 miles long from BP people alone. 🙆🙅💁🙋💆💇

Rather disappointed in this string of posts. Maybe it’s because I’m new. It just seems to me we all need to be patient and remember what it was like to experience some of these fears. I personally don’t even know what I would want to search for at times so a repeated question or situation that shows up is new for me and I learn from it. Were I wouldn’t even have thought to search the subject.

Amen! Bunch of negative Nancys lately.

Also- tbh the search function (at least on the iOS app) kind of sucks.

I can guarantee IOS isn't any,worse than Andriod, when I try to look up a topic I think I've seen it quotes many years before but not the current one.
But not all of us are Negative Nancies, most really do want to help. Ask your questions, say in detail what is bothering you most. I guess the NN get tired of people saying I can't do this without what this is being referred to . If you ask what exercise worked best for you or I like "x "food, can you think of a healthier substitute? Those I'm sure they would answer, at least I Will. I ,for one, do apologize --we really are very nice people on here.

I’m sorry if we offended you as a newbie. I hope you revisit the thread 6 months post op and I think you’ll even participate. It’s all about change of perspective and when you can relate to this post, it also is a NSV. Much love, and honestly sorry for offense. -Ashley

Also, just remember that we are talking about the far far extremes here. I always take my time to give answers to questions in a thoughtful manner and will continue to. Again, sorry to have offended you.

I’m also sorry to have offended you. I hope you don’t think that we don’t care or we roll our eyes (or in my case SMH) at every OP’s post, but perspective does come with experience. Like I said to the other gal, I hope you come back and participate because it’s truly a NSV to relate to this thread. Much love! ❤️

The topic is posted in the rants section for a reason. Many of us post daily numerous times being as helpful as we can to others, but the “rants” is a place for just that, ranting. If you are easily offended or disappointed in opinions of strangers on the internet you may want to stay out of the rants part of the forums.

I was on the time line. I’ll stay away from rants. I’m sure being able to vent is a good thing too.

        Congratulations to her Proud Granny, and wishing her a bright and successful future.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
