i never got car sick before and now it seems like every little thing will make me motion sick. I drove to the dr. Office on wed. and almost puked in the waiting room. I go back to work on Monday and have a 25 min commute. Please tell me this goes away.

victory at target today! It has a Starbucks inside. I was in a very long checkout line and the whole time I was trying to figure out how to have something and stay on plan ( 8 days post op and on full liquids). I was all set to order a tall decaf non-f

i have an appointment tomorrow because I'm worried about pain and tenderness around my bellybutton. 

I guess I just need reassurance that I'm doing the right thing by going to see my surgeon. I have a tendancy to over react and i don't want to

I recieved some test results and totally freaked out. I tested possitive for H.pylori, and sleep apnea. The follow up sleep study to fit the machine is late April. As for the H. Pylori, two weeks of antibiotics (six pills a day Yikes!) plus I have to w

I am finally to the point of getting my pre-op testing. I will have the upper GI, bloodwork and treadmill test done within the week. However, they can't get the sleep study schedualed until the end of APRIL! Thankfully because this is pre-surgery testi

Sorry for the length of this post, I'm wrestling with some things and it helps to write it all out.

I am preop for sleeve. I finished my first round of the doctors appointments, and they have submitted for final insurance approval. I was feelin

Pre op appointments - Today I had three doctors appointments. I had a good weigh-in, losing about 6 pounds in three weeks. The first appointment was with the registered dietitian. This was a very good v...

I am so excited after my meeting with the weight loss surgery center. I have struggled with my insurance company. I have called them three times to confirm that surgery is covered. Each time I get a different answer. I finally talked with a supervisor

I am pre-op RNY. It seems like everyone I tell about the surgery asks the question "why?" I feel like the PC answer is that I want the surgery to improve my health. There is truth in that answer, but it is so much more than that. My real answer is I wa

I went to the seminar yesterday! I am getting excited/nervous. The program looks great, but there will be more out of pocket expenses than I was expecting. They have a 12 week program, with weekly support group meetings and appt. with each member of th
