I am having a panniculectomy on Thursday, July 15th.
How was it the day of and after.
I am having second thoughts because of the drains and pain.
I had a consult with a plastic surgeon regarding having a panniculectomy.
I noticed the dates in this forum are outdated.
Has anyone had one recently? How was recover?
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.
I am desperate for a cup of coffee.
I am 1 month out from surgery. When can I have a cup? I'll even take decaf.
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.
I just had it done on the 7th of July and
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.
HOw long does one need to crush medications?? I am 4 months post op.
I am so over this. I really do not like to do this.
I am losing my hair.
What do I do?
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 having sharp pains in my stomach.
I spoke with the nurse from my program. She said maybe gas.
but it isnt gas pains.
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?
How do I get my turtle to move to show my weight as I lose it.
Has anyone experienced being very emotional?
I feel like a train wreck. On the verge of tears constantly.
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.
I had surgery this past monday. I just got out of the hospital today.
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.
October 14th. Mixed emotions after todays meeting with the surgeon.
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.
My name is Lisa and I am new to this.
I am deciding between bypass and sleeve.
I want the results of the bypass, but very scared about malabsorbtion of vitamins.
