I have my six month f/u with my surgeon tomorrow. I was always hoping that I would have lost 100lbs by six months. I have lost 87 pounds as of yesterday, and my 6 month date is the 24th. I am a little disappointed, but still extremely happy about what

I was at the Humber bariatric clinic today.  When going over my vitamins, the dietitian told me I only need to take 1 prenatal a day.  I had been taking two.  She said, that if my bloodwork I had done today shows any deficiencies I would need to add a

I have been in the hospital all week.  I developed a "pseudo anurism" on my left femoral artery.  It was where they inserted catheters last week to do my cardiac surgery.  If there is a rare complication, I will be the lucky person to get it!  So they

Well, I finally had my heart surgery on Monday.  Have been waiting over a year, longer wait than for my wls.  I feel like I was hit by a truck.  Everything hurts right now.  Today a little better than yesterday.  I swear they must have dropped me in th

I have to take my calcium 2 hours separate from another med I take three times a day. Sometimes my timing is off and I don't get the three doses of 500mg in.  I cannot skip the other med, it is a heart pill.  My question is, does anyone take 750mg two

My family doctor just called me, she had ordered a bunch of bloodwork for a baseline.  I had the labs done on Tuesday when I was 4 days post op, had surgery the previous Friday.  Apparently my liver enzymes are very high.  I am going to have them retes

I am home now, feeling good about my surgery.  No pain really, tolerating fluids and full fluids well.  If I didn't have the heart issues after my surgery, I could almost say it was a "breeze".  Really!!  I have some med changes so crushing pills is my

I am trying to get my vitamins organised for a couple of months post op.  I bought the centrum select for adults 50+ chewable tablets, and I have the B12 that melt under your tongue.  I was at Shoppers and could not find any chewable or liquid calcium

Saw Dr. Glazer and Dr. Huynh this week.  All is a go.  Dr. Glazer feels my medical problems  can be managed.  My blood thinner may be an issue though.  I take Pradaxa and have to stop 72 hours before surgery, then probably injectable thinner while in h
