Good Afternoon fellow VSGers. I just wanted to ask for you to all keep me in your thoughts and prayers if you do pray. I have to go in for a 2nd cardiac ablation Nov 19th. I have an irregular heart beat and can not tolerate any medications for the a

I have a LOT of sinus drainage and a pretty nasty cough. I always feel full and can't get much down in the way of solids and liquids make me feel very nauseated. What did you do to help with sinus drainage? Nausea? 4 months post op....

This isn't a concern... just need to vent.  I just finished a week of steroids for a nasty summer cold.  I was already super edgy with all the hormone dumping going on, but now I just have zero tolerance for any bs.  My filter is gone.  I come to this

I am experiencing a sinus infection right now.  I was just wondering what you took post-op VSG?  I know there are restrictions as to what we can and can't take, however the only thing I was told not to take were NSAIDs.  Any suggestions are greatly app

I was just curious if anyone experienced a stall when they first started working out.  I was just released to really "put in the work" and my weight hasn't changed in the last 3 days.  I am just curious if this is my body in shock and holding on to wat

I'm a very open and honest person.  I have had a major scale victory of 30 lbs down since surgery, however there have been MANY NSV that are happening on a regular basis.  This one may or may not relate to anyone but me, but THANK YOU GOD my lady parts

surgery was Friday, got to come home yesterday! I am feeling some discomfort, but it's gas. I'm doing gas x strips as needed. I am worried that I am not drinking enough. How long did it take you to be able to meet the 64oz of fluids goal?

I know it may seem as though I am a little coo coo for coco puffs for being excited to go under the knife, but I am so ready to get the next part of my life started.  Thank you everyone who posts in this forum.  I have found so much useful information

1. Did any of you have "crunchy" knees prior to surgery that improved after weight loss?

2. Did the doctor send you home with liquid pain meds?

3. How long before you returned to work? I have a desk job that requires more attention than

I saw someone else on here talking about having this test done and their surgery being delayed.  My surgeon didn't require this test in any of my Pre-Op labs.  I checked with his office today to see if they would be testing me and the nurse said no.  J
