Hey all, hope your holiday season has been lovely.

So the past few days I've been very burp-y. I've also had very mild nausea and discomfort while drinking. Does this sound like the start of an ulcer? Nothing? Maybe something?

Hey all,

As a heads up: this is going to be about poop.

So when I go to the bathroom most of the time it's just a normal experience. But, every once in a while it is most definitly not.

While going, typically after a short peri

Hello All,

Before surgery, I would fast one day a week for religious reasons. I'm wondering if it would be okay to incorporate that back into my life. Would it be alright, do you think, if I do it on a day where I limit my activity and increase

Hey there my pals!

So we all know the woes of hair loss, I envy those past this stage. And we (mostly) all know that there's not much ya can do about it except wait it out.

BUT there are ways to cover it up. My saving grace has been Ba

Hooray! My birthday was Monday and I was torn between getting an instant pot or a nice food processor as my gift. Woke up Monday morning to see Amazon having a one day 30% off sale for the instant pot. So it was decided! It just arrived so I'm excited

Hey everyone!

So I'm 5 months post op. My period has been regular and honestly a little lighter than normal, lasting between 2-5 days. And mild as far as cramps go.

This months period has been different. My period has now lasted 8 days

Hey All,

Just wondering what opinions y'all have on protein shakes? I've seen several people here say that their surgeon wanted them off them asap.

My surgeon's staff actually recommends a protein shake daily (or almost daily) for the

Two NSVs before I head off to bed.

Hey all. Lately I've been getting fairly light headed when ever I stand up. I don't see black or anything, but my vision blurs and I feel a bit like I'm floating and spinning at the same time. It passed fairly quickly, so not super annoying. Does this

As of today not only have I lost a whopping 100 pounds, I also hit "one"derland. My guess is that it will jump back into the low 200's at points throughout the week, but I saw the number so I'm counting it!

I now have 50lbs for my doctors goal

Recently I've noticed that when I first wake up or when I'm thirsty, I get this lump in my lower throat. It doesn't hurt, just feels strange. Typically once I start drinking it goes away.

Is this just my body's way of telling me to get my flui

Hey guys! So when I was in the hospital for a week I had a hard time drinking water, it just made me to nauseous. That's when I discovered the joys of Crystal Light Lemonade.

Ive never been a person that adds stuff to water. Even post op, I've

Last week, I got diagnosed with a structure. They weren't going to dialatw it for a week. I got incredibly sick since I couldn't keep even water down. So I was admitted to ER and then stayed in the hospital till me procedure Monday.

I've mentioned I've been nauseous in my last post. This weekend it got worse with me vomiting up any water immediately. After my apt with my surgeon he sent me straight to the hospital for upper gi, full labs, and lots of fluids.

good news- not

Hey all,

first I want to apologize for posting my questions so often, but not commenting on other people's posts regularly. Because of my work and wifi access it's been hard.

okay, so here's my (almost) 2 month update.


MeerKat1994 posted a discussion topic 7 months ago

I have a nasty flu bug. That's got me pretty nauseous. Is a small cup of ginger ale something that would still help post op? (I'm only 1 month out so it may be a huge no no)


MeerKat1994 posted a discussion topic 7 months ago

So I've developed a weird quirk this week. Most every strong scented food just smells sooo bad. I walked into the cafeteria the other day and got immediately nauseated. I served green beans today, terrible. And don't even get me started on meatballs. I

I'm one month out post op, and while I've been a trying to stay positive I've been a little bummed about my "slow" loss. But today I checked my scale and I've officially hit 249 lbs! That means I've reached the major milestone of a 50 pound loss from m

Yikes it's been awhile! I'm at my summer camp job so it's early morning and late nights, not to mention spotty wifi. Which equals limited internet access. Here's the update: Weight loss- 17 (plus the 15lbs of water weight post op) It's not as high as w

Like the title says, I knew I wasn't drinking enough water because it makes me nauseous.

Today, after talking with my surgeon's staff, I went to a gynecologist. Just as I thought, UTI and a yeast infection. Great. The UTI is in part because of
