  1. Not sure about it... sorry. I've had gabapentin, but nothing works on me.
  2. You're such an encyclopedia of information!! Thank you @Amber76bailey hugs ..wishing you much love and no pain
  3. Thank you so much for sharing this with me!!! Im definitely going to look into that and ask my neurologist about it. Did insurance cover it for you??
  4. Gabapentin does nothing for my chronic pain, arthritis and chronic headaches.. its totally useless. And my dr had prescribed it for my constant stomach pain due to a huge hernia and intestinal complications again, I've taken the highest legal dose 300mg 4 x's a day and still nothing other than a weird type of tingly feeling when i walk. Thumbs down. Perc 5 and 10 were too weak for me. Oxycod.10/325 was only thing that would give me some relief in the past to be able to do chores/ running around etc. I think I may have to look in the 650 or methadone like Amber76Bailey spoke of that has me hopeful!!!
  5. i am suffering from ulcers now.. Im so sorry to hear that youve had so many problems gees!!!~ Prayers up to you ^^ I have another endo in June hopefully this one will see something different. My last one in 11' led to an exploratory surgery that included hernia repair and removal of some of my intestines. I've prayed all goes well for you Keep your head up @DkSaltz
  6. back to basics for me...no more sweet tea and regular powerades :( 0 Calorie drinks only!!!~

      I really like isopure drinks. 20g of protien, zero carbs. One a day, then decaf iced tea and water to total a gallon each day.

  7. its just adjusting. I would sAY dont worry about it. But if youre really concerned just go ahead and call the dr. I had some of that too postop. But it went away.. you gotta look at it our intestines and stomach were totally rerouted. Hope that helps
  8. congrats 0n your success so far!
  9. I have the same issue.. im in perimenopause and I have other med issues going on! it sucks. It will make u crave something at the craziest times as if youre pregnant!! i hate it. But splenda did me wonders i tried that at first eating a pack of splenda. it was too sweet and didnt quell the craving. so ive learned giving into exactly what i want works.. as long as i dont eat like a cow the next day. lol
  10. IM A MAJOR SUGAR ADDICT PRE & POST OP!!! Hi My name is Re and I suck at managing my sugar intake. I can if i see my weight getting up too high, but normally i eat whatever i want and just watch my sugar. Some days better than others... I found that during the holidays i ate more. Normally i dont but because of the situation im in now... I was eating more pies to comfort me. Ive never done that before in my life. Im trying to best to continue maintaining my weight because I know several ladies that have had RNY done that have gained a lot back. if not most!! So i do not want to be a statistic. I wish everyone well and hope that we can all be successful in our new lives!! Go long term post op'rs!
