Not exactly an NSV, but amusing nonetheless - I was sleeved about 4 weeks ago and have been back at work for 2 weeks.  I've lost some weight, but apparently not enough where it's obvious to co-workers yet. Twice today, two ...

TMI - Diarrhea with pre-op diet - Sorry, I know this is really gross and TMI, but I'm on day 4 of my pre-op liquid diet (Optifast 800) and have been having diarrhea (5x-10x a day) since I started this regimen.  I k...

Started my pre-op liquid diet today and feeling we - I started my 10-day Optifast 800-calorie liquid diet today, per my surgeon's orders (I know, great timing, right? LOL), as my sleeve date is Dec. 6th.  Since about noon, I've been ...

Does this sound reasonable to you? - I met with my surgeon today to get my protein shakes for the 10-day liquid diet that I start on Thursday (great timing, huh? LOL), as my surgery date is Dec. 6th.  While there, I a...

Just spoke with my mother; ignorance must truly be - I really need to vent and get this off my chest. I'm scheduled to be sleeved in about 6 weeks (Dec. 6th), and today was a slow day at work (I have an office job), so I went onli...

Is it possible to cut out wheat and dairy post-op? - Hi, I'm hoping to get sleeved in about 2 months. Recently, I've read in various places that eliminating gluten and caseine (dairy protein) from your diet can help with anxiety (...

I learned today I have sleep apnea! So happy! - I did an overnight sleep study 2 weeks ago as part of my surgeon's requirements (I knew I snored but didn't think I had apnea).  I saw the pulmonologist today to go over the result...

OT: Need to vent about my PCP - So I'm 3 months into the insurance-required 6 months of nutritionist visits.  About 5 weeks ago, I started developing strange symptoms out of the blue -- lightheadedness upon stand...

OT: Question for diabetics and former diabetics - Hi everyone, I'm pre-op, currently going through the 6 months of (useless, IMO) NUT visits that my insurance requires; with any luck, I should have a date to get sleeved in Dece...
