@James. First, an apology. My last comment on this thread was unacceptably whiny and surly, and for that I'm sorry. My response was triggered by a misguided impression that my idea for a weight-loss glossary was being sidestepped as unworthy. I was hurt when I saw your abbreviations list posted --and pinned-- while my project idea for a weight-loss glossary seemed to be unacknowledged and ignored by the administrative staff of this forum. I was being the star of my own pity-party reality show! :blush: My behavior was childish and silly. I expect better of myself.

I will continue working on my glossary so that it's more than just an idea. I still run into acronyms, updated vocabulary and new terms (for me, at least) like orthorexia, trocars, Circle of Discontent (COD), twilight sedation, ARFID (formerly SED), surgiversary, and "disordered eating". In the near future, and when I put together something more substantial, I hope to find a way to share it with this community.

P.S. Did you pin your abbreviations list yourself... or was it pinned for you?

Thank you both for requesting a glossary and for repinning. I definitely needed it.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
