Hi Diana! Nice to hear from ya! Sorry you are having tummy pain. That's no fun.
As Val and Chris mentioned I guess you're just going to have to experiment, one pill at a time. I've found you really have to read the bottle labels. A lot of Vitamin Shoppe supplements contain rice flour, of which I'm suspicious. And then there's the "itols." If it is zinc, as Gina mentioned, I can remember that Vitalady commented that some folks use zinc lozenges. And Zinc picolonate is suppose to be well absorbed. I use the Blue Bonnet brand. Keep us posted of what you discover and how you're progressing -Jenny :o)
My insurance covered revision with no band problems but I did have serious GERD and the surgeon had to call the insurance company and fight for me. He told them I was never a candidate for the band. My BMI is 56. I have BCBSNC. I had to fight for two months to get this surgery approved. My surgery date is April 17th.
BCBS companies may cover depending on your policy.
While on vacation a few years ago, we had a problem with smoke odor from the previous person in the room. The staff brought an ozone machine and it cleared the odor really fast. Sorry that I don't remember the brand name.
10 Days and counting. I am scared to death. LOL. But happy, just more afraid of the pain and of complications but have prepared myself for such should they occur.
Advice please: What foods should I have at home for the first month or so? Remember this is a revision so I will be extra fragile.
I hope you have a very boring surgery with no pain and just sail through and come home and have a boring recovery. Good luck tomorrow morning. I am excited for you.
Congratulations on your surgery date. I know you are totally excited and maybe a little scared. I know because my date is in 10 days and those are my feelings.
I had bowel issues before my DS. It's not all the DS, but some of the foods that I can't eat now are broccoli, onions (common), wheat (gluten), SF stuff, SA, there are probably more. Some you discover after eating.
B: protein shake 2 strawberries
L: spagetti squach and hamburger with cheese all mixed together
S: protein bar Atkins
D: tenderloin and broccoli with cheese
S: protein shake
Did have a feed of chips and dip with diet pepsi while playing scrabble with hubby. It is my Friday today for me and I am off for the next two days, I work shift work. (for now)
I very soon want to get started at losing some weight I have been eating better in the last 6 months then I have in 7 years with this surgery, because of this site. I think my meds have a lot to do with why I sit at this weight, or why it is so hard to lose, but I would like to try to continue with eating like this and getting back into exercising, to see if I can make a change weight wise.
