  1. First photo was in Feb of 2014. I was around 410 pounds. Second photo was December of 2016 and I was around 194 pounds. It was definitely a big difference in walking around.
  2. I am 6 months out I am eating around 1500-2000. Cheese is a decent portion of my cals 400-800 most days of just cheese. But I would rather eat an extra few ounces of cheese than a few ounces of sugary food. I was already below my weight loss goal before my revision.
  3. I had constant issues for almost two years.(Which is really Rare) I don't wish that upon anyone. I needed up going to bypass instead of the sleeve and after 5 months things are finally normal as I think they are going to get. If you wanna chat just send me a msg. I can try to another any questions you have.
  4. I would give your doctors office a call to see whats safe to take. Did you find out you were allergic to acetaminophen before or after NyQuil?
  5. Good Afternoon Assuie, My issues have gone away. It seems I am allergic or having super bad reactions to calcium citrate. I stopped my Up Cal D and the issues went away.The past two weeks have been the first time in two years that I have had any relief. I am always very good about taking my supplements but for 3 or 4 days I forgot to take my calcium and the issue started to go away. At first it did not click and about 10-20 minutes after taking the up cal D the issues came back. For now my surgeon told me to stop all calcium supplements.
  6. Thanks everyone! =D Just waiting for their office to call me for an appointment
  7. I had a revision to bypass done at newton wellesley hospital back at the end of june. I am still pretty sick and having the same issues i have been the past two year. My surgeon is out of ideas and has no clue why I am having issues. He referred me to Dr Shikora at Brigham & Women's . Has anyone had Dr Shikora before?
  8. Glad things went well! I found sipping on warm chicken broth helped early out getting some fluids in.
  9. Yep it sucks. Mine was about 35k for the two days and I ended up with a 4k bill. My max out of pocket is 6k. 4k it still better than 35.
  10. Thanks! I am waiting for another visit. But they seem to be stumped.So I am seeing my GI doctor. It is happening all day no matter if my stomach is empty or if I have eat.
  11. I had revision surgery on June 28th and since the 3 week mark I have been dealing with Constant Burping and Pressure bottom of throat. It happens all day long and only time I get any relief is laying down which is odd. I have been on a cocktail of antacids and had 4 scopes. I see my GI doctor on Nov 1st for an in office visit. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this. I had the same issues with my sleeve. At what point is this not just reflux?
  12. I switched after to another doctor who converted my sleeve to bypass.
  13. Yep I was on it for about a week and half.
  14. The first few days after bypass I did was not in the mood for whey. But Cinwa has a good suggestion on the Isopure drinks. They taste good and are easy to drink. That is what was given in the hospital on the 2nd day. I ended up buying 4 bottles and then I ended up drinking the whey after I was done with the 4.
  15. yeah I have one to. On Carafate then have a another scope next week to try and stretch it. Good luck I hope everything goes well.
