I wonder if Dr Needleman will give me any pictures of my innards? Do you suppose if I act very sweetly and ask politely he would? I have pictures of the different stages of my 2 EGD, I'm going to ask. Please Please? I don't care if the whole 🌎 thinks I'm a little off-beat, I think they would be neat to have!📃

That's ok, hon. We all think you're a little off-beat, but we love ya anyway! :780_sparkling_heart: Or maybe because of it?

I had very very little pain post op. Someone asked me if I felt like there was a 'void' where they took out the stomach. that made me laugh actually. kind of makes sense that I would, but nope. anyways. I KNOW it's a smaller 'eating' stomach because a few bites of something and i'm full. instead of a normal sized dinner plate, I have a teacup saucer that I eat off of. and cant always finish what I put on it.

LOL! I thought I was the only one getting souvenir pictures! Glad to know I am not the only one with an odd surgeon.

Omg 😮 I thought I was the only one ; I was sleeved on 5/31 and I’m about 80-90% healed and I cannot believe I’m sleeved. I’ve moved on to solid foods and then the fact that I’m sleeved comes in ; solid foods fills me up so quickly two bite of chicken , tuna , anything more I’m dumping and throwing it up. I wasn’t informed that dumping was part of the sleeve am I doing something wrong !

This is exactly how I feel. Sometimes I wish my abdomen could be see through for a moment so I could just see what's up in there.

I feel this way too, it has been difficult for me to know when its hunger or just "wanting". My brain is still the big girl I was when surgery took place, wanting to eat all the things that taste good, just because they taste good and I didn't feel "full", so why not? But I learned my lesson, the quick eating, the over eating, only took me two times to see how much it SUCKS! Running to the bathroom to throw up has happened to me twice, all because I ate too much too fast and my stomach could not handle it. Of course something that I was told would/could happen. Though I have fixed that, I fee like, sometimes I see things that I still just want to eat, does that ever go away? Will I always just have to tell myself "no, you dont need it"?

      Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com
