@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 ❤️

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        Girl, that stall will break. Give your body a minute to realize what's happening and catch up with itself...it'll kick back in gear! 💓

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
