So I'm beyond nervous to push the limits, and my nut said don't be and to go for it. When I asked how much I'm suppose to eat she basically said until I feel full and that the denser the food the faster I'll feel full. First time I ate a pudding cup I

I had surgery on Monday, I was suppose to be discharged today but I'm 90% sure that's not going to happen. I keep asking myself why I did this to myself, it's hard to look into the future. I'm in a ton of pain, oxygen keeps dropping, my back hurts, I f

Congrats! Now the waiting game! I finished everything last week...

Lishamc1 posted a discussion topic 3 months ago

So how many days before surgery did you take off from work? How many days were you in the hospital afterwards? And how long were you off work until you went back after surgery????


Lishamc1 posted a discussion topic 3 months, 1 week ago

Completed the psych eval, now to just schedule the surgery and get approval from insurance! I would appreciate any and all tips, suggestions, or opinions!

Had my EGD today, doctor said everything looks good, he had mentioned something to my husband about having a different option of surgery instead of the RNY but he didn't understand the lingo.... I guess perks of me being in the medical field I understa
