My surgery was 6/14, but yesterday was what they considered to be my one month post-op visit.  I was down 21 pounds from my last visit, when I got my staples out, for a total of 37 pounds since surgery.  I told him I was shooting for 25 pounds instead

I've got a call into my surgeon's office and am awaiting their return call.  I had surgery 17 days ago and got my staples out last Friday.  All of my incisions healed up well, except one that started looking irritated a couple of days ago.  Now it's re

Just thought I'd share!! 

My Sam's in Lexington, KY has 12-packs on sale for $11.66. I think the sale is almost three weeks long, sometime in July. They were not on sale when I bought mine on Monday.

Hi all,

Sorry I haven't posted before now. My RNY was Tuesday and everything went well. I gained ten pounds while in the hospital but have lost 6 of those as of today. I was told I could start soft foods yesterday, so I had about a teaspoon of

I just called the hospital and I am to be there to check-in at 7:30 (eastern time) in the morning.  I'm excited, nervous, scared to death, and about any other emotion you can think of.  My stomach is PI$$ED off from not eating for days.  It's a good th

I've got 4 days left before I join the loser's bench.  One thing I haven't seen discussed, at least that I remember, is the terrible flatulence that I've heard you will have for the rest of your life.  Do you carry a spray with you, just in case?  What

I just want to make sure I have what I will need to make things a little easier post-op.  

Thanks!!!

Finally, after all this hard work, my packet is being submitted to insurance today for approval!!  I pray this goes smoother than the rest of my journey has gone.  But on the positive side, I am now being treated for decades of severe sleep apnea that

Tomorrow I have, what I hope to be, my last psychologist appointment.  At my prior appointment, I let her know that the psychiatrist was pleased with my progress and had released me for three months and said she absolutely supported my decision to have

I had a follow-up with the sleep specialist yesterday, as I have been on CPAP for a month now.  That went well; she said my sleep apnea is well controlled and I don't need to see her again for a year.  She is letting my surgeon know so that can be mark

I'm just wondering if anyone has used Insure Nutrition and gotten their protein supplements covered by insurance.  If so, has anyone been able to also get vitamins covered by insurance?  It seems like if protein supplements would be covered that vitami

I'm finding more and more people complaining about dental issues and losing all of their teeth after RNY.  I hadn't heard of this prior to now, and I've researched surgery for many, many years.  Anyone experience this??  Anyone have no issues at all??

I'm working hard to get back in a better routine.  What are some of your favorite crock-pot recipes?  I think that would help a lot... Typically, by the time I get home in the evening, I am just wiped out and have no desire to cook a meal.  Last night

I'm pre-op, and going through the process to get approval for RNY.  My surgeon will not operate on anyone that is not losing weight.  I had an appointment about a month ago and had lost 3 pounds, I think.  Since then, I was sent to a psychiatrist to ge

As I still struggle to adjust to CPAP therapy, which I feel is going fair, I realized this morning that my heartburn and reflux has disappeared!!  No complaints!!  Anyone else experience this??

Hi all. Hope everyone is having a good Monday.  I had my consult for a sleep study this morning.  No big deal, or so I thought.  I thought I'd go in, we'd chat, they'd schedule a sleep study, and that would be it.  Nope.  She came in, and I instantly l
