Everybody used to say they,Got,their Gas X strips b off of Amazon, maybe even Amazing Amazon doesn't have them either. Since I don't have an Amazon acvount, truly we have never spoke, I had resigned myself to chewable or bust!😛
Amazon no longer sells them either. I think eBay had some but overpriced because that’s how some sellers like to make money 🤦🏽‍♀️ I guess we all have to settle for chewables

I wish us bariatric consumers could petition the GasX gods to relent and resume cranking them out! Makes me say Should have done this sooner when they were prevelent.
I'm laying on my bed with my c,-pap,on, I feel asleep last PM without it, did I wake up in the night and put it on? Do not remember, so this morning I look like an out of work jet pilot. I'm trying to show compliance so my surgery will happen why can't I get,bonus points for my 6-8 hours usage, if it was a fair world they should add them all together, then divide the hours by 30 and see I'm trying to be sweetly compliant! I will not get barred from surgery on a technicality if I can at all prevent it!💦

I hate that machine with a passion. The second the surgery is over I’m going to clean it, dry it, and Celebrate putting it away in it’s pretty little case. Then stuff it in the back of the closet where I never have to think of it again.

I was thinking of the gas X chewable but then found the melt away ones I’m thinking of getting instead

Pre-Op went great today! First, I paid for the surgery in full with the office ($$$!!!!! ouch - but a good ouch - this is the beginning of a big change and journey in my life). The Bariatric Coordinator reviewed all my Vitamins and I'm in good shape. I received my binder (WLS Bible) which I'm eager to read over in detail. We discussed the Pre-Op Diet again which starts 10 days before surgery. The Bariatric Coordinator answered all my zillions of questions. I had a little pocket size moleskine that I've been keeping questions and notes in. By the time the Surgeon came in, I really had no further questions as I felt like everything had been answered already. I received my Pain RX script and also was told my surgery would be at 12:30 P.M. on Monday, 6/25. However, they did say that the time could easily get moved up to earlier in the day. I received a goodie/sample bag of various Vitamins and shakes and juices to try out. The team is amazing and I learned that the facility that I'm having surgery in is so brand new that it actually is opening next week. They said the recovery rooms are like a hotel room with an amazing view and for patient visitors, the lounge is insane with an amazing coffee shop. YAY! I am a sucker for architecture, NEW, aesthetics and design. They told me the Nurse Anesthetist will call me in the near future to go over all surgery related stuff (timing, meds, what to expect, etc.). I left feeling pretty excited. I went to CVS after and filled my RX and purchased a few more items: liquid Tylenol, Pepcid Complete (which I need to take 2 a day for the first 6 weeks before I graduate to calcium citrate chewable). I'm going to jump online and buy some Gas X strips. Otherwise, I feel pretty prepared in terms of supplies.

You are doing great!!!

Congrats on your upcoming Surgery! Do you have family in San Diego? Safe travels as you travel West.
No I don't have any family in California at all. The reason I am having the surgery there is that the hospital is what is covered by by work Insurance.

Everything went well. The ensure Protein Drinks in hospital were awful. Was so happy to have my Premier Protein when I got home. Also I really missed my sugar free popsicles!

      So I'm having a really really really crappy day. Crappy month really.  My husbands been off work for 2 months with an injury and I've been picking up all the slack with everything. And while, I'm happy to step up to the plate and do these things, I'm getting worn out, physically and mentally. And we went to the doctor today that just pushed his recovery time out for another 2 months.
      The reason I tell you all this......
      I bought twizzlers from the vending machine... and I've been nibbling on them.....
      So much for a lifestyle change *cry face*
      Its crazy because I haven't thought about food as comfort in a very long time. But today, I broke.

        Are you binge eating those snacks?
        Are you way over your calorie counts?

        I'm going to go out on a limb and say "no".
        You *clearly* have made the lifestyle change, you are eating a candy and I'm sure you are taking the time to savor and enjoy it too. Don't feel bad about it. You are allowed some "junk" foods every now and again, it's the whole "all the time" that was bad. I have no doubt in my mind that you've made the changes and are living a totally different food life now.

        Forgive yourself.
        Only stress about what you can control.
        You are a rock star!

      2. AshAsh1

        Thank you Matt.

        You are right, I'm not binging by any means. I guess what upsets me is that I bought it, not because I was craving something sweet or because I was hungry. I bought them because I thought it would emotionally make me feel better. Which it didn't, which is a good thing, because I know now that not only I shouldn't turn to food, but it doesn't work anymore.

        You are a great friend. Thanks again for the words of encouragement and understanding.

      3. Matt Z

        I get where the "upset" is coming from, but that revelation should show you that you've really made MASSIVE changes to your entire lifestyle.

        The simple fact that you are on here, talking about how upset eating some Twizzlers made you... is more than enough proof that you are doing the right things.

        Allow the concession and smile. That old Ash is gone.

      4. sillykitty

        Hi Ash ...

        Sorry you are having the crappy month :(

        I agree with Matt, that one vending machine purchase does not undo the tremendous success you have had, and the lifestyle changes you have made. And even better yet, you learned that food doesn't give you the comfort it once did.

        We are way harder on ourselves than we would be on anyone else!

        Hugs!!

        Twizzlers? What twizzlers? Over and done. Never happened.

      I'm less than 320 for the first time in many many years. I honestly cannot remember when. The lowest I can remember being is 325 back in 2015, but less than 320!?! I'm just over three weeks post-op and I'm down a total of 64.2 pounds lost since June 29, 2018, when I first saw the surgeon.

      So i'm new to this! Came across this site trying to figure out if my hungry self can eat pasta two weeks post op! (Of course I know this wont be a good idea lol) But Im glad I found it because I for sure need some support from people who are going though the same thing! So i'm two weeks post op and I feel like the first week great! I lost 16 lbs that week....but this week I have only lost 3 pounds!  What i'm I doing wrong?! And NOOOOO I havent been eating solids....regardless the pasta comment lol Im still on liquids. Hummmmm...TBC

        Welcome to the site, I'm sure you'll get lots of helpful insights here. Just so you know - status posts don't usually get many responses. If you'd like to hear from several people, it is best to start a thread (post a topic).

        And, you're right, pasta would be a really bad idea :o

      2. fmellnick

        Thank you so much! :) Good thing you told me this site is weird to get around lol

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        Yes, it's definitely not intuitive. I will also warn you that posts about foods that you know you shouldn't eat sometimes elicit "over-the-top" responses. This is a religion for some people and they may not get that you were joking.

      4. fmellnick

        Oh man! Youre the best thanks for the heads up! :)
