Hi, I just got my first set of labs -3 month labs- done. I am good in all vitamins but low in my albumin and pre albumin. My legs, ankles, and feet are swelling pretty bad. I know I have not been keeping track of my protein so I am now going to count

Hi, I have noticed lately that I am really hungry in the morning. Before surgery I would have to have at least 2 cups of coffee and I wouldn't eat until maybe 10:00 am. Now I am not drinking any coffee- I've lost a taste for it which I can not believe

I had to get up 4 times last night in the middle of the night to go # 2! I know this can't be forever right????

I had my DS two days ago. Just got home from the hospital. I feel a million times better than I did after my VSG 3 1/2 years ago! I can't wait to see what this journey holds in store for me.

If you leak oil "oil slick" does it smell fecal? Another big worry for me as I work in an office

Hi, I am about to sign papers with my surgeon to have the DS surgery. One of my biggest worries is an obstruction. Can anyone tell me if they have had obstructions and what happened? Thanks.

Hi, I am three years out and have been talking to Dr B about a second surgery. Has anyone else on here been referred to the new surgeon on his team and or is anyone already planning to have a DS vs the VSG?
