So I am starting week 3 post op. I am praying and hoping that I can go to pureed food this week. My nutritionist I guess is the one that is giving me the phases. I did eat a couple scallops over the weekend. I was able to eat 2 then I was good. No pain

I am hungry, exhausted and all out miserable. I hurt only when I drink. I am 1 week out and really it doesnt even feel like I had my digestive system changed around. I dont get it. When I eat my soup it feels like I can eat the whole can. I see folks t

I am supposed to be able to start full liquids today. I started sf popsicles yesterday. That helped hydrate me. Tried some onion mushroom broth last night but was too heavy. There are 2 things I am afraid of. Im afraid of hurting myself and I am afraid

OK so a few days out and I feel pretty good. Except for having gas stuck in my system. This is not the gas they used during surgery this is the kind of gas that our body makes. How to get it moving? I am walking and doing what I was told. I feel like o

I went in for surgery yesterday, they took me back and actually started the procedure at 4pm. I was in recovery by 6. Im home now. The initial pain was quite severe. I had a lot of trouble peeing until I got home. My pain level also went down from a 7

I have my surgery TODAY! I thought it would never come and yesterday was the longest day of my life. I go to the hospital at 11:15 and my surgery is scheduled for 1:15. I have been having doubts and second thoughts really bad but I think it is just cau

I am scheduled for surgery on Monday. How long before I can take birth control again? I use seasonique so the lack of periods and security of not getting pregnant is something I am in a hurry to get back to. I know that there are other methods to preve

So I have suffered through the waiting, that anticipation, the denials and my last days of being miserably over weight. As I have begun to look forward to and fantasize about the future I wake up with a stuffy nose and a cough. I avoided and managed to

OK so I am finally almost to the operating table. I have 8 days to go. As far as vitamins food and nutrition I have a pretty good handle on what to expect. Until I get below 180 I have a pretty good idea of what to expect as far as looks go. The things

I saw this advertised on the website (obesity Help). I went to it and filled out the information. I am wondering has anyone used this program successfully? They called me today and said that at no cost I will receive my protein, some scar cream, and a

I met the surgeon yesterday. I got a date of October 19. I am so excited, nervous and a million other emotions. It has finally become reality and I have so many people to thank for making it this far. All of you that read and respond to my posts as wel

So after 6 months I will FINALLY meet the surgeon and start the ending process of insurance approvals and getting a surgery date on the 25th. i have been working with the nutritionist weekly for the entire time, Ive changed my eating, increased my acti

Hi everyone. I started this journey in April. Was devastated when the psych consult decision was that i could not have surgery and thought about just accepting the fat uncomfortable and living life. I am so glad I did not do that. I have had therapy ev

So is it NICOTINE or SMOKING that causes ulcers? I have not SMOKED all year but I was using 6mg of nicotine in an e-cig. Last week I was told to go to 0 and it was all good. The nurse at the surgeons office treated me like I was some crazed drug addict

So I had my rant and rave last week, then I went to the therapist. She said that in the middle of August she will clear me for surgery. (This is 6 months from the last time I smoked anything). That was exciting news and I wasnt even expecting to hear t

I have been off here for awhile but I need to vent and really need some advice. I was not cleared for surgery because the psychologist said I need to do therapy first. Ok fine I have committed to it and slowly working through issues. But what the heck

Tonight I was at my final nutrition class, there was a drug rep there and apparently it is possible to get all the necessary vitamins plus nasal B12 for $25 a month and it is autofilled and delivered to your door. This 25 is the copay on it as most ins

So today I will finish the last nutrition class. The only thing I will need to do before they submit to insurance is some therapy. Anyone have any clues as to what they are looking for how long it could take? I dont mind the therapy but it is starting

The computer says I have some suicidal tendencies. Wow was I shocked. Killing myself is never something I have thought about. The "team" of people only 1 of whom I have actually had conversation with thinks it's best if we stop the processright now and

I am 8 pounds heavier than I was 1 month ago at consult. I am going in the opposite direction. Not a good thing at all. Im thinking I should probably just go ahead and do a liquid diet from here on (surgery wont be that far out). However, I cannot find

Had my first psych visit today. I feel like she is going to delay me in this process. She wants me to commit to therapy which is fine but if they want to fix my issues before they will let me get physically healthy then it is counterproductive. Has any
