I'm going to start on Vyvanse soon and I wanted to pick your brain a bit.

Are you still taking it?
Did you have any side effects? If so, did they eventually go away?
Did you become "resistent" to it?

Any info you're willi

Wow, no one has started the thread! It's 2:00 PDT so I figured I'd better start it. Where is everyone?

QOTD: Do you look forward to the holidays?

I do not - I don't remember enjoying them for a very long time. I seem

I've reached the 100 lb lost milestone.

It feels surreal. Especially when I pull out my "before" pants. I lived in those during summer 2

Hey sweet lady! Do you know if there is any way I could ship a big box of clothes to someone for the clothing exchange at the conference? I think it would be cheaper to do it that way than to pay the baggage fee for a couple of extra suitcas

I bought this beautiful dress (it came from Austria!) a few years ago with the intention of taking Max and Faith to Oktoberfest and walking in the Bernese Mountain Dog parade with the Seattle Bernese club.

The dress didn't fit...so naturally we

Good morning! I can't believe I'm first today...of course, waking up at 3:15 could put you ahead of the game. I'm heading home this afternoon after being gone since Tuesday morning. Learned some new things about packing my own food (don't overpack - I

It appears that I have bilateral medial meniscus tears in both knees. My physical therapist is 99% sure and he's been doing this for over 30 years, so he's most likely right. He did a more thorough exam than ANY of the orthopedists I went to did. I rea

Happy Sunday all.

This has been a really shitty weekend.

I know I've talked before about the problems I have with my knees...and ankles. Since October of last year. It's a sort of "traveling tendinitis" (patellofemoral pain syndrome) a

First of all, I hope you stay here at OH. You're a very valuable resource here and I do appreciate you.

I sincerely apologize if I've ever called you a name. I've always taught my kids that they can comment on behavior, but that they

I got the pathology report back from my sleeve surgery, and was hoping someone could decipher it for me? I know there are lots of science and medical pros here...

I think everything looks normal and I'm sure my team would contact me if there w

Happy Saturday, Sleevers (even though it's almost over.)

At 14 days out, it seems that I'm either ravenous or I'm just not that interested in eating. Today all I've had is a protein shake for breakfast, then a string cheese and 2 oz of Kirkland

So a week ago today my stomach was sleeved.

Today is really difficult. I told my husband that I'm having a really rough day, then promptly burst into tears, sobbing about what I've done, I've mutilated myself blah-blah-blah. I'm not quite sure

I haven't taken my high blood pressure meds (Valsartan and Torsemide) since the morning before my surgery.

I'm monitoring my blood pressure several times a day to make sure that it's not too high ...

IT'S NORMAL!


Teresa G. posted a discussion topic 7 months, 1 week ago

I've been trying to get a protein shake down for over 2 hours. My gut is just churning and making the most gawdawful noises. I haven't puked (yet).

Is this normal? And does this count towards my fluids? I make it with almond milk and ice.

I'm 3 days post-op, still on clear liquids but starting full liquids tomorrow.

I'm really focusing on water right now, as I know dehydration can really be a thing. But I'm worried about drinking too much at a time...I'm sipping, but can easily

Everything went great! I had a pretty large hiatal hernia which is now fixed. No problem drinking water or sucking on popsicles, but the jello was a little iffy.

Gas pains are annoying but tolerable. I’ve taken a few laps around the floor

Well, tomorrow I'm getting the sleeve!

Unfortunately my sleeve sister, who has been beside me for this entire journey, hasn't been approved yet. We have the same insurance. The only difference is the psych reports. Plus I've been in therapy t

Can you shave the day before surgery?

Has anyone been told to not shave before surgery?

I'm kinda thinking it's not a good idea to do it in case of nicks or micro-nicks.


Teresa G. posted a discussion topic 7 months, 2 weeks ago

I don't know why I've never done this before.

For my meal tonight, I took some coleslaw mix and steamed it, then tossed it in a dab each of rice vinegar and balsamic vinegar. It was AMAZING!

If you like cooked cabbage.
