Hi everyone,

Has anyone ever had a fluoroscopy? I had one today with barium. The barium didn't move through quickly, they had to manipulate it down.

I have pain in my stomach today. The worst is I won't get results until next week.

Hi everyone,

I've been gone for a while but now I am back.

I had to have a conversion due to severe GERD. (And a weight gain of 30 pounds).

The GERD was awful. So I am back.

6 months post op, down 70 pounds.  Feeling good.

It just seems to be coming off very slowly now.

I am five months post op and down 65 pounds.

3 more pounds to my doctor's goal weight for me.  Although, I want to lose another 20 after that.

Love being able to go shopping and enjoy it.

9 weeks post op and finally starting to feel good.

I thought it would never happen.  It was a tough road for me and hopefully the worst is over.

I still can only eat about 2-3 ounces 3 times a day, but it seems to be working.

I am 6 weeks post op.  Still not feeling great.  Exhausted.  No energy.  

I spoke to someone I work with that had the lap band.  She is two years post op and still doesn't feel great.

 

When will I begin to feel good?

Hi,

Has anyone experienced being very emotional?

I feel like a train wreck. On the verge of tears constantly.


LisaKelley posted a discussion topic 4 years, 11 months ago

Now I am on soft foods.

was able to have 1 oz of chicken tonight, 5 peas, 1 tablespoon of broccoli and 1/4 tsp of mashed potato.

all mushed in 1/4 tsp of gravy.

I felt like I was eating like a queen.

Had more than usual swelling, was unable to tolerate liquids.

I am exhausted. I hate the protein shakes. The ones you make, are ust as bad as the already made ones

My surgery is set for Monday.  Lucky me, someone cancelled.  Was originally scheduled for October 14th.

Excited and nervous all at the same time.

I had my ultrasound.  They found something on my liver.  My PCP ordered an MRI and I have a tumor on my liver.

Will this hinder my surgery.  I had these tests where I work which partners with the hospital I would have surgery.
