  1. Past hour
  2. 15 months post-op and I'm looking forward to 90 degree days (about mid July). Under armor shirt, T-shirt, light weight hoodie and a flannel lined shirt on right now. Sometimes I wear peds and socks (so cold feet) at the same time. Have a heated mattress pad warming the bed right now and (if needed) fuzzy warm socks. I'll take being cold and healthy any day of the week.
  3. Such answers are as fast as could be allowed by making use of twice every day. Talking to somebody who has Dermagen IQ under eye locations for some time interval of your energy and effort, I suggest this lotion This is a nicely consisting and shown item by Dermagen IQ. The program is very much consumed in its program and the allocator itself encounter cost-effective and strong with an comprehensive top of the power. To begin with with, I thought it was a turn-off, yet then I saw that I simply need to pull the top up to uncover the power .
  4. Today
  5. You are kind for letting your sister into your personal space. I'd suggest getting her a 10 gallon storage box and putting all her junk food there. She can keep it in her room, the garage, wherever, but not in plain sight. I'm impressed with your weight loss. Way to go!
  6. Hi Pennyvsg, I had gastric bypass on 4/4/17 and my emotions have been up and down. I can't count how many times I have said that I regret my surgery. I know *exactly* how you feel. The two things that have helped me are this forum and going to a support group. I'm far away from my home and I had my surgery in Mexico (I'm recuperating at my parents' house in CA), so I literally Googled support group and found a meeting. It was amazing to be completely honest about my feelings, fears and doubts to a group of people who had been through the process. Our serotonin levels are going crazy right now and it's normal to feel sad. I'm saying this to myself as much as I'm saying it to you. Let's hold each other's hands through this journey. I wish you well!
  7. I'll keep you in my prayers, too. I'm incredibly impressed with your weight loss. Your date will be here before you know it
  8. I'm glad to hear that you are overall doing well! I've also had constipation and I have been taking a stool softener (not a laxative) to ease my bowel movements. It's been helping a bit. I'm sorry to hear about your hospital roommate. That's pretty bad luck for her. xoxo
  9. I'm beginning my journey, so I settled for a couple of pairs of shorts from a thrift store. No sense in spending a ton of money if I'm only wearing them for a few months. I'll keep an eye out and report back if I see anything that is a swing in the right direction.
  10. I'm not good with patience. I want it to happen right this instant! I'm kidding but deep inside there is a little bit of desiring instant gratification. I've lost two pounds since I originally wrote this post. That's twenty pounds lost. Twenty pounds that my body doesn't have to deal with. I have to focus on the positive.
  11. Thanks for the tough love. I needed to hear this from someone who has been through the process. Your words mean a lot to me and I have been thinking about what you wrote for the past two days. I'm still afraid but less and less every day.
  12. First of all, great job on the weight loss so far! I am impressed. Cold hands, and indeed a cold body, is very common after weight loss surgery.
  13. I'm glad you shared it - I've just been lazy about actually putting all those numbers from my various apps into a spreadsheet so I can see them all together. If you're not using it, has a good app for tracking your losses - I like how it graphs. Numbers! Data! Graphs! I can get behind that.
  14. Hi everyone, I'm a little over four months post op and I've already lost 91 pounds. I'm finding that I'm cold most of the time, especially my hands. Any thoughts on a fix? Lol. I'm feeling great and very blessed to have had a smooth recovery thus far.
  15. What you are going through is totally not normal, and may well be related to using the ring. If your surgeon cannot get you relief, you may want to seek a second opinion from another bariatric surgeon. We are here to help and support you. By the way, here are some medical articles on complications from the ring with gastric bypass:
  16. He said it would be better in the long run of things to help me not stretch out my new pouch. As for my problems well besides the pain witch I was expecting, I spent the better part of 4 days in the restroom, my nurse thought I was having dumping but I have only had water, Gatorade 2, peppermint tea, vegetable broth, and hot lemon water and 1 premier protein shake per day. They took me off all meds thinking they were causing a blockage and for the past 3 days all I've had is water. I've lost 25lbs in less than 2 weeks and I feel very week. I get to see my doctor Tuesday hopefully I'll know more then but for now I'm sorry to say I'm regretting this whole surgery.
  17. You got the silastic ring? What did your surgeon say was his motivation for offering it to you? I'm curious about it. I'm sorry to hear about your troubles. What kind of problems are you having?
  18. If any one Else wants to Join in, Il'll be starting tomorrow (4/30)!
  19. Help. Too much sweat and movement and I have raw skin under my bottom belly and they said they will postpone surgery if you have that. Any tried and true fast treatments?
  20. Yesterday
  21. I've bought lots of shorts this year....but summer has just come to an end on my side of the globe. While I do prefer Capri length pants, often it is just too hot to wear them where I live. Into jeans and trackie dacks now as winter is fast approaching. Annoying too given I've come to the end of my shopping my wardrobe sizes. I might have to live in trackies for most of this winter which might be comfy at home but definitely not great for leaving the house.
  22. It's really great to have you back, and fabulous job on your weight loss!
  23. I was just at Costco. They had lots of mid length shorts and cute Bermuda lengths. Also Kohls. My legs are horrible and very spider veiny so I don't love shorts. But when I do find appropriate shorts I can live with, usually I find them at TJ maxx, Marshalls and the like. I'm surprised Gap didn't have mid length shorts, I have a couple pairs of cute linen shorts but I bought them last summer.
  24. I did not have this ring, but if you search this forum on it there are several postings: I am sorry that things are not going well. Be sure to contact your surgeon to see what he/she can do for you.
  25. Thanks for posting this update. It sounds like things are going well for you.
  26. What a great update!
  27. I have debilitating menstrual cramps so bad that I have to miss work for a couple days just to writhe in pain at home. Just got a prescription for this, and it's really helping! So grateful! It doesn't make me sleepy.
  28. Oh, thank you! I fixed it so it's a formula!! I'm glad you like it! I know it's not perfect, but it helps to see it in my opinion! But I know it doesn't work for everyone and that's okay!
