Ok, so I ran out of my omeprazole and my doctor wonâ€™t prescribe me anymore. I figured maybe I wonâ€™t need it anymore. Today is day 4 without it and I am just miserable! Couldnâ€™t sleep last night either. Guess Iâ€™ll have to use the OTC meds wh
Iâ€™ve noticed a trend in regards to my weight loss. I will go 2, 3 or sometimes even 4 days with about a pound lost each day and then nothing for a couple days or even a week. I am wondering if I am losing enough, not enough, right on track etc? I
Does it ever stop? Lol. I have long thick curly hair....well I should say I had thick hair.....itâ€™s definitely thinned out since surgery. My hair has always fallen out here and there, but it has really started coming out lots within the last month o
Iâ€™d like to find some high protein snacks for on the go. Right now Iâ€™ve been doing nuts, but as much as I love them there are only so many I can eat before I get tired of them. Iâ€™d love to find some good protein bars, but the ones Iâ€™ve looked
So I had my 3 month post op appointment a couple weeks ago. Met with my dietitian and therapist. Both told me I shouldnâ€™t be weighing myself daily.....surprise surprise. I was told that even though my weight is right on track as to what I should b
I know everyone is different, but what has been your experience?
Iâ€™m just curious because I am currently a size 26/28 and decided to try on an old pair of pants I had in my closet that were a size 24. Well that wasnâ€™t happening because t
Am I the only one who canâ€™t drink coffee anymore? Before surgery I loved coffee....I take that back, I was obsessed with it! I always started my day with a cup or two and on the weekends Iâ€™d find myself sometimes drinking it all day long. I prac
So my surgeon never discussed with me my goal weight. But from researching online, with my height, my ideal weight (or at least the weight that would give me a normal BMI) would be 145.6 pounds and below. Also, using the formula of current weight min
So I did a really dumb thing yesterday. I decided to try out this new smoothie place after work seeing as they had some healthy options on their menu. So I ordered off of their light and fit menu. I even asked the lady at the drive thru window if th
Itâ€™s been a real struggle this past month or so with the constant nausea/vomiting and then the pain. Was starting to think Iâ€™d never feel better and wondered if I had made the right decision by having the surgery. I came very close to losing my j
So I always had GERD really bad before surgery. Iâ€™d wake up in the middle of the night choking on stomach acid. It was horrible. This was one of my big reasons for having the rny over the sleeve.
Now itâ€™s like itâ€™s coming back full for
Had my one month post op yesterday. Since I didnâ€™t have any other symptoms other than nausea I was told it probably wasnâ€™t a stricture or anything like that and no other tests were needed. I was asked if I had any pain, but I told them no because
Iâ€™m currently 10 days out from surgery and started my vitamins the very next day after I went home from the hospital. Iâ€™m taking the bariatric fusion chews. 4 per day everyday. I was told by my dietitian that these vitamins had everything I need
Cant believe itâ€™s finally here. I check into the hospital at 8 in the morning for my RNY surgery and Iâ€™m super nervous!!
Donâ€™t know why Iâ€™m nervous as Iâ€™ve had surgery before, but this is different. I guess Iâ€™m most nervous about
Do they make flavored water that is non carbonated and contain no sugars or artificial sweeteners? Iâ€™ve been looking, but canâ€™t believe how hard this is to find.
Iâ€™m not a huge fan of artificial sweeteners. The taste is ok, but they ten
Itâ€™s really starting to sink in now that Iâ€™m actually having surgery next Wednesday. I almost still canâ€™t believe it!
My pre-op went well aside from something I was told today by the PA. She told me that if I have a lot of scar tissue fr
So I got the call today from my surgeons office that I have been approved for surgery. I will have the RNY surgery on the 23rd of this month. Iâ€™m excited and nervous all at once. Feels like Iâ€™ve been waiting so long for this from having insurance
So Iâ€™m prepping for RNY surgery....getting all of the requirements out of the way etc. And I have my psych evaluation on Dec 10th. I was told it was a 4 hour appointment. Iâ€™m sitting here wondering what on earth will be going on during those 4 h
