That’s cool! I’ve heard from so many that he’s the best. Do you go to the Support groups? Was wondering if they were well attended or if this serves the same purpose?

I'm on there, but I never post anything. I just look at the wls stories, pictures and get ideas of how to navigate this "new life".

Ah I haven't gone to any support groups yet, don't know if I will. I told quite a few of my close friends before doing this and so far all have been very supportive. Because I had like weird eating (keto) before my surgery, everyone is kind of use to me and my having to order stuff a specific/special way I guess. Also my husband has been so supportive too. So I mean I guess with the help of the online community here too, I feel like I'm good. If that makes sense?

How's it going you're only a week out. I was hating life still at a week out. Now however I am feeling great.

That's so great! Sounds like you're set up for success and so glad it's going great!

This place is really helpful. I really wish I'd known about it before my surgery, but so glad I've got it now. You're probably right that it'll have more than enough answers for my nervous nelly brain.

Not exactly hating life, but I'm hungry, which I didn't expect. Maybe it's just mind games. Plus, I am a worrier, so constantly wonder if I'm doing/done something to mess things up. Thankfully, the pain hasn't been too bad and I haven't had any nausea (knock on wood) which would really be a bummer.

Thanks again for asking :)

Well I found a lot of time if I'm hungry I noticed I need to drink Water. Sometimes I have to set a timer to remind me to drink, every 15 minutes. I know I'm further along than you. I did have 1 egg like before 2nd week was over but took like an hour to eat it 🤦🏼‍♀️ The next time when I had seen Zare I had egg with cheese 🤭 and it was good, but still took forever to eat it. Everyone is so different.

Dr Zare put me on shots that was the hardest thing and oh god the med he has me on for gallstones I hate it.

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

      3. biginjapan

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
