So at my three month appointment the Nut said I was food averse and not eating properly. Fast forward 6 weeks since my 3 month appointment and I have not lost any more weight.

Most days (about 5 days a week) I am still consuming 1-2 p

Hi all,

I have not posted here for a while, need some help. Please no negative comments, looking for support not criticisms.

Has anybody experienced a stricture? I am wondering if I have one after attending nutrition education class today.

I am 4 weeks post-op, and previously tolerated foods are no longer staying down and others I have tried are making my intolerance

So where does everyone lose weight from first and is any of it causing you discomfort?

I have noticed that I have lost weight from my face, my boobs, my back and my backside.

Face - yes there are cheek bones there and the chin is becomi

I have am sick of refried beans and ricotta, it is getting boring and I have had to fight my head hunger and need to satisfy chewing by crunching ice.

So I am going to stop complaining about Opti and the 6 measly pounds I lost in 3 weeks.

Because WOW! Three weeks post-op I am down an amazing 30 lbs.

In all honesty I think that maybe I was less at surgery but in my nervousness I was n

I am a big nervous ball of insecurity, I am 11 days post-op and have yet to step on the scale.

I know I am losing, my jeans are falling down, my face looks slimmer but I have dieted for 35 or more years and don't want to disappointed if the sca

So, just like Opti Day 5, post-op Day 5 brings a breakthrough!

Wow, I cannot believe how much better I feel today.

I flew the coop, and grocery shopped, bought a new dryer, and am feeling pretty good. I had my bags put in my car and fam

I only got home late night and still struggling with gas pain and swollen stomach.

I never realized how hard it would be to sleep in my own bed, I kind of liked the controls and handles on the hospital bed to help me stand up alone.

Still in the hospital, hoping for discharge today. Still unable to tolerate full fluids - so my night nurse let me know I may not go home until I tolerate that.

still sucking ice chips every 15 minutes, walking the halls and pacing in

Simplyb posted a discussion topic 5 months, 2 weeks ago

So, I had my pre-op consult today, besides almost being run over in the parking lot I felt very discouraged - surgery is in two days - I have done my due diligence- I know the risks - I am looking forward to a new toll to combat my weight, high blood p

Looking for a weigh in, so to speak.

I have yet to tell my mom, the reasons are complicated including:

1) she is presently out of the country

2) my basement is in disarray and there is nowhere for her to stay because of the stuf
