Topic: RE: What is foaming?

Usually accompanied by nausea for me. Overproduction of saliva and general feeling of wanting to throw up. I've had the foamies a few times but haven't thrown up.

Topic: RE: Looking to calm my nerves!

Thank you very much. I am only 3 days out. Got home yesterday. I haven't experienced any gas pains. I walked. As soon as they told me I could. And as often as I could tolerate. Doing the breathing treatments. Sipping, sipping and sipping. I've been blessed and haven't really experienced any of the issues I have read about and dreaded yet.

The best thing I can tell you is listen to your doctor and nurses. They know what they're doing.

When you ate too much, dry meat , etc and it causes your mouth to water and gets slimy and usually you end of throwing up

Topic: What is foaming?

I have seen posts where people say they are foaming or have the foamies. What does that mean?

Good morning! It's another beautiful day, sunny and clear skies. It is supposed to stay this way for another week, thank goodness! I usually decorate the front deck with pumpkins, I only have a fall wreath on the door this year. So I guess my pumpkin patch is closed this year Annie:-)

Having dinner with my uncle tonight at his assisted living facility. They have a really good chef, so I am sure it will be wonderful. My plan for the day is to continue putting the house I order, inside and out.

QOTD-This is a hard one. I have tons of compassion for others, but not very much for myself. I am working on this though. Good question Annie, but hard one for me to answer right now.

B-1/2 protein puck, bullet coffee

L-Shredded chicken with salsa

S-Hot Tea

D-??

E-Hike with Emmy

Have a safe and peaceful Sunday!

Me too! I am having VSG tomorrow morning and I am so nervous that I have been getting hives for the last week. For some reason this is scaring me more than any other previous surgery!

Just wanted to say we started at about the same starting place, and you're only 3 weeks ahead of me, and you're inspiring to me!
