@MN_Meg770. Be sure to let your mother know how much her support means to you. Your comment about your mother checking in on you -- as if she were still in the hospital with you -- was a sweet thing to say. Share that with your mother, too.

Well wow sorry to hear this I ‘m sick as well except now I have picc line and TPN my nausea seems endless and they can’t find anything wrong yet. I’m getting my throat checked last all tests shows nothing wrong but I can’t eat or drink severe nausea smells even amen me sick and being in a car with motion. Why does this happen who knows.

I had that with my sleeve in 2014. It sucked, but it gave my stomach the time it needed to rest and heal. Make sure they keep an eye on that PICC line, and you just take care of you. It was an odd time, as they also wouldn’t let me lose weight. They would hang a bag of fats every day. I would laugh about having weight loss surgery and being given fats. I then had a feeding tube and the daily caloric count was over 2,000. Again, I had to laugh. I was an overweight woman with a feeding tube. Sometimes I just had to find the humor.
I’ll be thinking of you, as I have been there. Know you can come out of this just fine, and still get to your goals! ❤️

@Kimber628 hi wow so I have picc line now but I’m still losing weight I lose about 3 lbs a week or so and I still have nausea going on 10 weeks it haven’t let up how long did it take until yij were better they will do a check on my throat and also inside. So far they can’t tekl why this is happening. I was just released last week for a blood infection and had to get new picc line almost died I was taken by ambulance and nearly fainted and was given lots of morphine for pain.it feels like I’ll never be normal I wish u never did this surgery I rather lose it the hard way and be back to my old self. I feel my life is ruined and I’ll never eat again.

@kokolat2005 I have so been there. I had an odd thing happen where I got a new PICC line and within 24 hours, I was full of blood clots. My right arm to neck was 80% occluded. I had them in my leg and my lung. I didn’t feel well so my doctor had my go to the hospital for the line to be checked. I drove myself there lol. I ended up in ICU and once I was more stable, I was sent to a university hospital for a few weeks. I here you on the almost dying thing. It was terrifying. I had the line taken out and I switched to a feeding tube. I’ll be thinking of you and hoping this all gets better soon. Keep advocating for yourself!!

Boogie, you mind your P's and Q's and do everything they tell you to. You don't want to screw around with pancreatitis. Thinking of you and hoping you're feeling better ASAP. What crappy luck!

Update 💓 i have now “graduated “ to shakes again although they’ve been causing me great pain and trouble keeping them down. I am also still being fed nutrients via IV for the next two or so days . The positive of all of this is that my pancreas levels are improving. I will update soon. Thank you all ❤️

        Welcome! This is a very friendly and supportive site.

        FYI, status updates get a lot fewer responses than threads. So don't feel shunned if you don't get many responses here.

        I live in Kennedale. Where are you having your surgery and which doctor? I'm being unbearably nosy here :P

        I had mine at USMD, Dr. Dyslin.

      2. Zipps

        Haha, you are fine. Thank you for the welcome! I am having my surgery with Dr Matin at Baylor Grapevine. Day is approaching fast, little nervous of course but can't wait.

      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.

        @GreenTealael

        There are still 2 Twizzlers left sitting in the wrapper... they aren't gone yet. But today the cleaning people come at work, so they will be soon! I think I'll get some satisfaction to have something left to throw away.

        I was just messing around. I don't mind being "one of the girls" LOL

      I moved from "obese" and made it to the "overweight" category on the BMI chart today!  Yippee!  Check out my latest 13 week Post-Op update on YouTube:
