I'm on June 11 and day two of the liquid diet. I've had the worst Headache today. I'm wondering if I need to stop my metformin.

Are you feeling better (headaches wise)?

Yes, thank you for asking! Today is the first day I haven't had one. I haven't had caffeine in a while, I just didn't expect headaches. I had my final surgeon's appointment today. I'm all set to go!!

I feel like it's a dream.

@Iwanttoseemytoes - Yay!!!! Glad to hear it. I weaned myself off coffee (1/4 C) less every 2-3 days for about a month and a half until I was caffeine free. Cold turkey will bring on killer headaches. I've been there before. It's seriously countdown mode now for you. Woot, woot!

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

        I am sorry to hear you are struggling. Do what you need to do to stay healthy mentally and physically. I hope you can get to the other side of your depression. Hang in there.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.
