- HEALTH TRACKER
I was in the hospital for a week on bagged steriods and then home on them for 2 weeks. Yes I did gain weight but took it off pretty fast. So don't worry to much...easy come, easy go. Hugs
It does work ! I have been ill since surgery.....I had a lot of health issues prior to surgery. I seem to keep catching colds/flu from my great nephews....all 5 of them. But even without exercise for a lot of the time, I am still losing weight !
Hugs and prayers.......I have been ill one way or another since Thanksgiving. Cold/flu...swollen glands and asthma/COPD. Been to the ER 4 times, in the hospital twice so far and several antiabotics & steriods later....my throat is still hurting and the glands are swollen still. They said I had RSV and Thrush. Now I am making a appointment to see my PCP and have a strep test because of what happened to your friend. I am so sorry about your friend....
But its worth to find a leak early....trust me !
Hugs and prayers hon
I to was on Lisinopril for my blood pressure but have since stopped taking it as I would eat and my BP would drop pretty low and make me light headed, almost passing out. You may want to check with your doctor to try a lower dose. And how's Houston ? I'm from the Heights area !
I had my VSG on Aug 27th, 2012. I had a leak on Sept 12th and was in and out of the hospital for a month. I know its hard but i was having issues also. Slow down and take a breath. Its gonna be ok. I know for a fact it sucks right now for ya but it does get better. I had to sleep in a recliner cause I could not lay down. They put me on extra meds cause of the acid in my new tummy. And cause of the leak I had to be on a feeding tube which was not fun. IT DOES GET BETTER ! Hugs and prayers being sent out to ya...msg me if ya want to chat or need a ear.
Hugs and prayers being sent to you ! I also had issues after surgery and called. I had a leak and was on a feeding tube for 6 weeks after. Then I caught C Diff in the hospital and they found a blood clot in my shoulder of all places. Hang in there !
Since surgery I have had many health issues and one being my lungs. Was put on steroids for the last 7 weeks and I had the constant munchies. I am now off the steroids and doing alot better. I stalled the whole time I was on them but thank God I didn't gain any but didn't lose. Tonight I caved in.....ate some German chocolate cake and dumped for the first time in 5 months ! That will teach me for giving in to a craving.
MyFitnessPal works great to track your food.
I would take a case of Premier RTD shakes. The chocolate is good. I get mine at Sam's Club. Have a great time ! I went on a cruise to Mexico a few years ago and it was the best time I ever had !
Has anyone else had any issues with chronic illnesses since surgery ? I am a little over 4 months out and been having some major health issues. I can't seen to get well since the surgery and the leak repair. Spent a month in the hospital right after surgery, had a feeding tube and drain for awhile.And every since I keep catching a cold or the flu over and over again. My lab numbers where great at my check ups so thats not a issue. Any advice would be welcomed.
