Did you have any heartburn before surgery? Maybe I will try the chewable gas x too. The burning is really bothersome

I started getting Heart burn maybe 3 Weeks our called the Dr and he Prescribed an ant -acid .They say I’ll take for a Year then they’ll cut it back .

Hey guys I was sleeved on Friday i had a really tough time getting my fluids and Proteins yesterday but am getting in a little better today. I am setting an alarm to be sure I am drinking an ounce every fifteen minutes or so. Dealing with a Headache today is that due to lower fluids? Any thoughts would be appreciated

Surgery date 12/17. Day 3 - serious headache!! Hurt worse than my belly. On that day I was able to get more fluids down and more Protein, helped tremendously. Headache much better the next day too and then gone. It kinda felt like a caffeine withdrawal headache.

It did feel like a caffeine headache for me too. It went away as I was able to get more liquids in. I am so thankful for the responses we are all going through this together a new year a new life 😊

I got the go ahead for soft foods today! Hooray! So, I had some scrambled egg. I'm guessing that we shouldn't be time pressured when we are eating so we can take the time to pay attention. I was time pressured so it was a bit uncomfortable but it passed. Looking forward to getting to know this new stomach of mine and what it can and can't tolerate.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
