Yesterday started wk #3 post op and I only lost 1lb last week....... Is this something I should worry about?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 3 months, 1 week ago

im never hungry, it's hard work to get in all liquids and anytime I try to eat puréed my stomach cramps. How do I know how much to eat? What's the minimum amt I should be eating?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 3 months, 1 week ago

I'm feeling extra emotionally sensitive? I'm 12 days post op and find myself tearing up at the slightest things, is this normal?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 3 months, 2 weeks ago

how many grams of protein do you count as a scoop? I've read many forum posts and online reviews too seriously doubt it's actually 30grams a scoop. I really do like using it since it is totally tasteless and mixes so well.

I'm having trouble getting 64oz of fluid in. Today is the first day I met my protein total, and I've managed to get more in each day, but any tips to help make this goal easier? I've also only had a very small BM despite 3 doses of miralax.

I'm still having pain around one of my sites when I move. Is this normal? Outside of this pain and rumbling I'm my stomach I feel good.

made it home finally, my gosh today felt like the longest day ever!. The car ride home did wonders for the gas......i hadn't passed any since surgery and man it felt good to when I got home. Can't wait to shower now!!!!

Passed my swallow study, started on clear liquids, Foley catheter removed and pain has lessened up a bit. I'm beyond exhausted though....... Not my body as much as my mind it seems. I feel like I can't stay awake even having cut back on my pain meds

Finally in my seat on the Losers Bench!!!!!!! Moderate to severe pain earlier, but much better now. Getting up to walk soon so I'm sure that will help with this discomfort/pain. Sucking on ice chips now with Swallow study in the morning. So far so

YIKES. I can't believe it's almost here, it's been a long 6wks but Thurs is my surgery. I'm not really nervous although I think that will start soon.


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 3 months, 3 weeks ago

have you saved on grocery spending since your surgery? And so, how much would you estimate that to be?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 3 months, 3 weeks ago

I'm on day 9 of my liquid pre op diet and I'm super hungry today. I know it's all hormonal since my period is due 4 days after my surgery. Any ideas on things to do? It's 11AM and I've already met my protein goal for the day


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 3 months, 4 weeks ago

did any of you take a day or two off before your surgery? I'm def not working the day before but can't decide about the day before that.


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 4 months ago

im on my 2wk liquid pre op diet, day 3 and notice I run out of energy quickly. I'm assuming this is normal?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 4 months ago

OK, this is getting REAL! Tomorrow I start my two week pre op liquid diet. Hard to believe just 10 days ago this seemed so far away. 14 days from now I'll be anxiously awaiting my new stomach........OH MY GOSH!


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 4 months, 1 week ago

I start the pre op diet on Thurs and this morning my nerves have gone crazy.......CRAZY. any ideas on what I can do or take to make it through these next two 2wks?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 4 months, 1 week ago

LMTSC posted a discussion topic 4 months, 1 week ago

I'm so excited. I start my 2wk liquid diet in 7 days and surgery on the 29th and I can't wait!!!!!

Since I got such great suggestions when I asked about vitamins, I'd like to know which unflavored protein powder has worked best for y'all in both hot and cold items.

Thanks in advance for the suggestions!

do most people who lose over 100lbs need skin removal surgery?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 4 months, 3 weeks ago

how many sleevers had their tastes drastically changed with surgery?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 4 months, 3 weeks ago

what's been your biggest motivation during this entire experience, before during and after?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 4 months, 3 weeks ago

Will I be able to wear my bra immediately after surgery? Will it matter if it's an underwire?
