  6. Yes, I had to inject myself for 30 days after my op. The first few days were a bit scary as I have (had) a terrible fear of needles but I very quickly got used to injecting myself and infact it has helped with my fear of them, I had to have 6 vitamin B12 injections over a period of 10 days and I didn't fret at all about them.
  7. 100lbs gone forever yeaaaaaaahhh

  12. Help needed please I am 3 weeks post op, but i have had quite bad diaherria on and off for the last week. I had a scan at my hospital and everything looked fine, i was told to starve myself for 24hrs as they thought it might be a bug (virus) Has anyone else experienced this and what did you do to stop it. Also, i weighed myself today expecting to have lost lbs and lbs because of the diaherria but i have only lost 3lbs in 7 days (i lost 17lbs in the first 2 weeks post op) so quite disappointed, has this happened to anyone else.
