Case of 18 is $26.99. No tax. Regularly $33.99. It's never on sale when I need it so I stocked up! They only have vanilla and chocolate at Vaughan. Enjoy!

I only use straws once in a while, but I really HATE drinking water since surgery. Today was particularly tough with water intake so I thought I would give it a try with a straw and lo and behold, the water went down easier with it. I know we were tol

I haven't exercised very much. After surgery I used to walk. Then back to work and I stopped. As I type I think of how hard it was in the beginning. This journey has not been easy. It's a decision not to be taken likely. A few things:

hello,

its a good thing my gallbladder was removed. Apparently it was double

in size. They had to put it in a bag and then yank the contents out. The area of the yanking hurts so miserably. Right now my incisions kill and so does my

As you are all aware I had "gas pains" for some time. Well, it became time foe a visit to the ER last night. They took good care of me at Humber River. They did an ultrasound to rule out a gallbladder attack. So it wasn't that. Then they did a scop

first off, this Friday I will be 6 months post op. But starting last night and all day today I have had such bad, uncomfortable gas. It doesn't want to leave via passing gas, but I've been burping when I'm lucky. Has anyone else experienced this? I

I am 3.5 months post op. I have a really bad case of pink eye and have never had it in my life. Does the immune system get weaker after RNY surgery?


Lucile777 posted a discussion topic 8 months, 3 weeks ago

I was off today and I started the day out right with high protein in my diet. Then I had popcorn twice, butter chicken and a HUGE. Bowl of ice cream. I feel awful physically. Feels like I'm going to throw up but I won't... lots of burps you know? Oh

hello all. I am 9 weeks post op. Now that I'm not turning to food to deal with my emotions I am very aware of when I'm spoken to in a rude tone or am not appreciated or when I'm taken for granted. You see, I had a very disfunctional family situation

My appointment for the nurse was scheduled for 8:00 am and I rushed down the highway for no reason.... wasn't seen until 8:50. During the nurse appointment I had to ask the nurse to check my incisions because she asked me how they were. I told her "I

Has anyone attended the monthly support groups for Humber RNYers? They're arranged by the SW. If so, have you found them helpful?

thanks

i had my RNY Surgery at Humber last week Friday. In the hospital I had to ask the nurse for the blood thinner injection. She said "Oh. They didn't ordered it for you. Let me go check." And it was in my room in about an hour. Case in point: if I

HI FRIENDS,

well I finally had RNY on Friday at HRRH. I had last minute cold feet and begged for a sleeve and Dr. Huynh said no. I think I pissed him off. But anyway. It took me a LONG time to wake up. They were concerned and the anestheti
