I'm 13 months out and can eat and entire McDonalds McDouble w/cheese hamburger patty with out the bun and I used to eat half and about an hour later I can finish....now I've moved up to eating the whole patty maybe in 2 shifts 30 minutes apart.

    I am almost 4 months out and I've lost 62 lbs.....I need to have my gallbladder removed therefore I have been on a diet of ramen noodles (yes high in NA) popcicles, and popcorn are the only things I can eat and keep down...My surgeon says I should be able to eat almost anything by now....I got on the scales today and it seems I gained 9 lbs....I could cry....I held down mashed potatoes last night and a little gumbo (liquid)...am I doing something wrong??? If my gallbladder comes out and I am able to eat geez what happens next??? I'm afraid to ask.....(sigh)....I can't fail this early out can I???

Dear Dr. Callery Ive been having some issues with my gall bladder...an ultrasound has confirmed that it needs to come out....Im just wondering, I live 2 and 1/2 hours away from my surgeon....would it be ok to have a surgeon closer to me help deal with it?? I just love my surgeon its just so far away for a consult/checkup, pre-op then surgery the next day. I'm really feeling miserable and need to do something quickly....any suggestions???

  16. I need eating suggestions

    I'm about 10 weeks out and CANNOT stand food...I'm sick of soup the thick texture makes me gag!!!....ANY meats make me throw up....eggs are not my friend either...I do still love my popsicles but there's no nutritional value...carb master yougurt is good (lowcarbs)...Is anyone else having this problem??? I will say the rewards are great but I really want to eat things for taste not hunger but I have no luck.....
  17. I need eating suggestions

    Thank you 2Bme....I dont like ANY fish...I wish I did everyone talks about how it works....I've tried the Greek yogurt and the texture makes me gag too...UGH!!! I'm just glad the weight is falling off but i like tasty things....almost everything is not going down no matter how much I chew...
  18. Why LB over GBS?

    I had GBS....I wouldnt change a thing...Recovery may be a little longer but very light work...I'm talking light...takes about as long...I was able to ride and sit and drive as soon as I got home. I had a friend that had the LB 1 week after I did and I've lost about 60 lbs & my friend lost 3 lbs ...she's always exercising and always hungry....with the GBS I'm NEVER hungry...This was Dec 19, 2011....I seriously wouldn't waste my time with the LB unless my ins had the final say.
  19. Thinking ahead. Coffee question

    Deby...I may be sooo wrong but I haven't changed my coffee....its still caffeinated....
  20. Would you do this all over again?

    Congrats!!!! I'm all new to this as well as the procedure....YES....even though I've had some minor complications I would absolutely do it al over again. My complications only consist of eating something and throwing up ...it all worthwhile!!!
  21. Whats Normal?

    Before WLS I would've loved the feeling of full with just 2 bites....now thats about all I can tolerate with out my mouth watering like I'm going to throw up....Is this normal? My dr told me i could try things as long as its tolerated....he suggested I start trying meat, well thats completely out of the question....I can't live just on popsicles although I LOVE them!!! Any ideas??? Oh btw I'm 4 weeks out if that helps yall out....
  22. Is This Safe?

    I'm 7 weeks out on Monday and I can not eat much....it takes all day plus some to finish a lean cuisine...which I only did twice...I threw up each time... the only thing I can handle is soup, popcorn, popsicles. I think I may take in about 200-300 calories a day....in the hospital I'm running up and down the halls every day...I'm finding myself extremely tired. I DESPISE protein shakes now...I used to enjoy them but my tastes have changed. I tried a very small amount of finely chopped chicken and threw up again...I really don't care if I ever eat it again but I know I still need the protein....I sell Advocare and the Sparks are great....lots of vit b 12 i just don't think Im doing enough. I'm not regretting for one minute what I did...some people would give their right arm for what I did...I'm soooo thankful just don't feel really good to keep up with my job....can anyone give me their opinions and ideas....
  23. Fish

    Ok guys I'm from the south where fish ranks with other great delicacies (Fried Catfish) Yuck NEVER liked anything that swam....But someone has convinced me that I should try salmon....I want something that I may be able to tolerate....but I'm also looking for taste....Im not hungry just want taste...Any ideas on which will be good and how to cook/fix it??
  24. Popcorn!

    Is it strange that alot of things have been making me sick but the strange things like popcorn does fine....I can eat the entire bag and still be ok....strange.....Has anyone else got some similar things thats ok with them but the things you'd think would be ok wont work???
