I've been off the board for a while now, life has been crazy..(I won't go into it). I just passed the 15 month point and have now lost 171 lbs. I'm one pound from my surgeons original guess of the weight I could reach, BUT I would like to lose a little bit more. I've gone from 394 down to 221, but I would really like to see that ONEderland again. By the way I'm 6'1.
I also have a question, has any one else gone through this. I've had pain just below my right ribs, (the gall bladder is gone), for over a month now. They checked all the liver functions etc, then it got so I couldnt eat, then I couldnt keep liquids down. So they did a CT scan and said the loop that is made during the surgery is inflamed and fluid filled. So i was put in the hospital and a IV was put in they scoped me the next day and said yes, its inflamed but no ulcer. They sent me home with this chalky pink liquid and nexium. And a liquid diet. But i'm still having pain, and diarhea.
