You can either believe it will happen.....or believe it won't. Both are self fulfilled prophesies. For Me it has happened. My Surgery was September 21/2010
As for the hair loss I am still hoping to avoid it but it doesn't sound like it thank goodness I still have lots maybe it won't be to noticable.
Thanks for the answers.
Gravol has became one of my best friends. I have it in my purse and beside my bed. BUT half a pill makes me so tired that I have to lay down for a bit. But they now have the ginger gravol in pill form (I can't stand the chewables) so I would try that as well.
Her suggestion to me saved my sanity!! She suggested that I give my stomach a small 'appetizer' before trying to eat anything. A small drink of something with calories (2-3 oz) about a half hour before a meal. The calories are needed to 'prep' the digestive system to accept food. So I drink a small amount of milk prior to eating a meal... about a 1/2 hour before. It works like a dream. My nut suggested even a couple of ounces of fruit juice mixed with lots of water would do the trick as well. Liquid leaves the stomach quicker than food, so I wouldn't use small amounts of food... But the milk gives you a little more protein as well.
For the times that this didn't work for me... a Zantac 150 usually did!!! It's very easy on the stomach and about an hour after taking it... Nirvanna!!!!!!!
I'm about 20 weeks out of surgery now... and I feel great!! I only have problems with Beef and Bread.. oh ya.. and sometimes Eggs...
I haven't had that awful nausea in a couple of months...
Thanks again for the advice I will put it into action.
