Hi All. If you can believe it I fell as I was walking my dog the other day. I broke one rib and bruised others. Everything else is ok. Except...

I am taking Oxycodone for the pain as the extra strength tylenol doesn't cut it right now.

Hi All. I had my surgery almost 3 weeks ago. I went off diabetes meds before surgery and I'm still off.

My b.s. is running from 87 to 160. I am wondering if any of you had these kind of numbers at 3 weeks out and then still had remission after

Hi All. I had my Gastric Bypass last Tuesday and everthing went very well. For those of you on a clear liquid diet after surgery, do think that sugar free popsicles and SF jello count as liquid lol?

Hi there. Have any of you needed to use a car service to drop you at the hospital or bring you home?

Hi All. Did any of you have GERD before you did the sleeve and if so did your GERD become worse? Thanks.

Hi All. I just signed my consent forma at the surgeon's office. I am having gastric bypass surgery and the surgeon said that if there were adhesions or scar tissue where I had my lap and removed 3 years ago he would do the gastric sleeve instead.

Hi All. I am on my pre op diet and I'm allowed crystal light. Do you think I could just put some ice in the blender and put some crystal light in it and count it as a drink?

Hi there. I started the RNY journey in Feb 2017 and just finally got my surgery date. January 23rd. It took a long time because I had to work out things with my therapist. I wanted to get some eating problems under control and am still learning. <

Hi all. The psychiatrist told me last week that most of my medicines won't work post op. Especially my Cymbalta and bubprion for anxiety and depression.

Has anyone been told that their meds won't work after surgery?? Thanks. Nancy G.
