Dexascans (bone scan to measure for osteoporosis) are usually recommended for women over 65 and men over 70, but earlier if there are risk factors. I am 4+ years and just had one and it revealed some minor degree of bone loss. The only prior dexascan
After 3 years of good labs, my labs are finally off. Low iron - I am post-men so I have been getting away with no iron, but not any longer. OMG, iron is instant constipation. I added the benefiber to my yougurt, but still need more. Ihavent had to
An ounce is 28 grams. So 100 grams of protein is about 4 ounces! Easy - WRONG.

I was clearing out old email and found this clip of Al Roker - a WLS hero of mi
Hi to all,
I'm seeing many people posting that they just had surgery, so here is a little slogan I made up to help me juggle all the new ways I had to learn to eat after WLS. No filling up on lower calorie foods to feel full, no having soup be
I don't post on this board often, but I came across a long-term WLS doctor's website that talks about the outcomes of WLS and the possibilities for revisions. I don't know this doctor, so I'm not endorsing him as a surgeon, but his strategy is consiste
I'm now at a month in compression garments and may have awhile yet, so I have altered my vest with sleeves and sleeves to fit better. I found hook and eye tape - 8.00 per yard, in white or black. I need small arms (for arm lift) but a medium chest (I
