    7 years out...need help!
    Hi everyone! Been a long time since I was on here!!! Here's a small update: my lowest weight was 123lbs, I was 143lbs and very happy at the time I got married almost 3 years ago, I'm married to a wonderful man, have a beautiful 2 year old that has changed my life, but I am now facing a ton of health issues and need some advice!!!
    I have gained about 35lbs in the last year and a half...my thyroid is completely not functioning, I have severe Vitamin D deficiencies, I am severely anemic, and have a large mass under one of my incisions which causes me horrible pain most days. I've had blood work, iron infusions, taking many different vitamins and medications to help with all my deficiencies, had ultrasounds with no results to explain what the golf ball of a mass is above my stomach. I am bloated all the time, especially my legs and stomach (I look like I'm 7 months pregnant today) cuz of all the bloating. The bloating is painful and uncomfortable as well! Has anyone this far out had any of these types of symptoms? Any suggestions as to what I can ask my physician to test for? It's quite depressing feeling sick and weak all the time, and carrying around all the extra weight again!

    Help! (Iron)
    Hey T-T...

    So, here's my problem...and I know that you can all help me with this.

    I recently found out that my iron level has dropped drastically. Average reading is approx 80 and my iron level is at about 23-24...How can I up my iron level without having to take the awful iron pills that make me feel extremely sick!??? The pharmacist was going to do some research and find out what kind of iron pills would be suitable for me as I'm a GB patient.

    I'm trying to eat foods high in iron but am having a hard time finding things that are at least something that I can eat without cringing...(LIVER IS MY WORST ENEMY lol and I don't wanna eat it). I am trying Fiber 1 Honey Clusters which is 50% iron per serving. It's yummy, but I can't just eat cereal! LoL

    Any suggestions??? Food wise, or supplement wise!?

    Thanks T-T

    Most recently...I went out on a few dates with this guy and he was nice...but on our last date (which was a lunch date) he leaned in and grabbed my face and KISSED ME...but it was like a FROG KISS lol He kept sticking his tongue in and out and in and out of my mouth...ribbit! The Frog Kisser clearly isn't a PRINCE so I had to say GOODBYE!
    Hope you all got a laugh!

    Also...dumped a guy for staring at me way too much, saying "YOU'RE SO PRETTY" to me...Yes, I know that's not a bad thing at all...only that this was all he did and said to me! He didn't wanna know anything about me...Didn't have anything else to say to me! What a loser! I told him that he was missing out cuz I'm a pretty great person and looks aren't everything. He shoulda taken some time to get to know me, it may have worked out?
