Hi all!

So, ah, I'm 11 months out now. And I just found out we are expecting a baby this spring! I don't know a whole lot about doing this post op. I've already talked to my surgeon's nurse and she said to just keep my 12 month check up and ke

we are going on vacation in couple of week. This will involve several hours of driving. This is a place I have a history of snacking. Any tips for me? I do most of the driving because I get car sick otherwise, so distracting myself with other amusement

My son needed brownies for a thing. They just came out of the oven. This is me, saying out loud, that I Will Not Eat A Brownie. They will be gone later this afternoon. Get thee behind me, Brownie!

Hello!

i have done searches on this pain but can't find it in someone as far out from surgery as I am. I am 10 months out. I have a very sharp, burning pain when I bend over. It started yesterday. Yesterday it only hurt if I bent over. Today it

so...who has done this, and can a fat person do it? Because I am still fat, lol. My husband used to kayak a million years ago, before we met, and talks all the time about doing it again. There is a workshop being held nearby that I would love to surpri

So, I'm pretty sure this is a kidney stone. But my first kidney stone was like a year and a half ago, and I didn't have any idea what it was until I was in the ER with pain. It's not anywhere that severe this time, and so I'm getting paranoid it may be

So, one of the things I was most looking forward to after surgery was improving my energy level. I have a very busy life (guess we all do!) and I was just so exhausted all the time, in every way. After surgery, honestly, that was the same or even worse

Lately I have had some bowel issues. They are kinda vague. I feel kind of bloated and full in my lower abdomen. I often feel like I need to have a bowel movement and can't, especially late in the day. Yet, I don't seem to be constipated, I still go ple

They made some changes to my supplements after my last labs. I'm tinkering, trying to get it all in to four slots if possible. Does this look ok?

breakfast- omeprazole, 1 multi capsule (celebrate complete), 1 calcium

lunch- 2 multi caps

Hi all,

Dost my eyes deceive me? it looks like everyone is back? I'm happy to see that, if so...

I haven't been on the daily menu thread in a while. I'll be back there tomorrow. I have been very off my track for a couple of weeks, and w

The scale this morning, check it! Halfway to goal! Or, halfway to the first, rather arbitrary goal I set, because 200 pounds gone is such a nice round number, and I'm 5'8, so that seems respectable...thoug

I'm locked out of my van. I'm sitting on the curb and noticing that my rear end is much bonier than it was last time I sat on a curb.

Haven't been on the menu boards all weekend because I have a horrible cold, ugh. So tired of constant, constant hacking. Anyway, we bought this house in June. We live in three pretty acres surrounded by trees with decks on all four sides of the house.

actually, she wasn't old, her surgery was...lol. She had it, oh I forget exactly, like 13 years ago? She had regained it all back. That was pretty humbling. :/ 

I will see her again, and I'm hoping to encourage her to come here to this board, a
