    Ken !!!! How you been? Things okay here, Im sorta in the same boat as you. Stall and drop stall and drop. But Im am down 25lbs since surgery!! Yay me!!! And I have lost two pants sizes. Its not easy to not get discouraged when you hit that stall but I keep at it and eventually the scale does move again. Glad to hear from you, I was wondering what happened you.

    Having a hard time getting in fluids
    I am three days post-op and am really having a hard time getting all my fluids in not to mention I havent been able to get any protien in. First day home anything I put in came back up. Yesterday I was able to get 20oz of water with crystal light , 2oz of chicken broth and about 2oz of juice. Any suggestions? I dont want to get dehyrated but I dont want to over do it either.

    Sit down with her and tell her. She is your sister afterall and it may be better for the both of you to have someone to go through this with. Although our family ( I hope) are supportive they really have no idea what you go through unless they have been through it themselves. Tell her I am sure she will be happy to have someone to share this experience with.

    So Frustrated!
    So Frustrated Today!!!!! Went to see my surgeon, and then went to the pulmonary dr. to review tests and get cleared fro surgery and he tells me that everything looks good except some inflamation in my lungs that he is not sure what it is and could be anything from an allergy to damage from smoking, either way it is not life threating, and he wants to do tests and do a sleep apnia test as well.. This may hold up my surgery!!!! Feel like giving up!!!!! Surgeon says not to worry and we will see what the report says when he gets it but when is enough enough already!!! Just cant afford much more.

    On a lighter note..... I have lost 15 more pounds, making it a total of twenty since I began this journey.

    Hair Loss
    Hi I was wondering if anyone could share with me their experience with hair loss. I already have very fine hair so this is kinda scaring me. I am due to get VSG next month but I dont want to go bald to be skinny, kinda not a fair trade off.

    Hi Ken! I am scheduled for VSG on Feburary 24th. I am excited but at the same time a little nervous. I have been struggling lately to stick to my new way of eating and I have to tell you it has not been easy. I gave up soda's for water about a month ago, and have completly changed my eating habits which is a big change after eating this way for 30 years. So far I have lost 15 pounds but I seem to have just stopped losing so I am going to try to relax a little and see what happens. I will be having my surgery in Delaware with Dr. Sofronski ( haven't seen anyone else on here mention him. I wish there was) At any rate I try not to read to much because some of the horror stories really make me have second thoughts. At any rate good luck to you, and I will post again soon to keep everyone up to date on my progress and hopefully get some insight from seniors who know a lot more than I do.

    Thanks, I feel a lot better knowing that it isnt something that has to be done.
