  1. Hello everyone my name is Mario, I just had my gastric bypass and hietal hernia repair on 12/12/2016 Dr. Patel did my surgery in San Antonio at Southwest General Hospital

  2. I had thought of an elimination diet because it didn't start until I added all foods back into my diet including grains. I talked with the nurse about it and she thought it was environmental but I agree with you, I think its food allergy. Thank you for that. I will go on an elimination diet after thanksgiving. What do you think about the fatigue, any suggestions on what I may need to do. Thank you!

      I eliminated all grains, breads, crackers, cereals etc. etc. and limited my beans to a scant 1/4 cup beans 1 to 2 times a week.

      I upped my protein and because I'm a  pescatarian and can't eat eggs, that meant continuing to use protein shakes.  I never drop below 80 - 100g of protein a day.  That alone helped my energy levels.

      My diet basically consists of fresh vegetables, salad with an ounce of nuts, fresh fruit, avocado, fish and shellfish, Morningstar vegetarian products etc., cheese, yogurt and other dairy (although an intolerance to dairy maybe causing you issues so try eliminating that first).

  5. closing in on goal and wondering if I should go lower....hmmm.. what a lovely dilemma!

      At 5ft, 135lb would leave you in the overweight BMI category but ultimately, it's how you feel that matters.

  6. I can't get to the hospital with this possible stricture until tomorrow around noon.   Will I be ok till then?  I have to go to a three hour unemployment seminar or they won't pay me.

      Keep up your fluids as much as you can.  Don't let this go on any longer than you have to.

      My husband is in his 80's and he long ago realised a birthday card with his credit card inside was the safest option.  But I didn't go overboard - bottle of Rive Gauche and a pair of Merrell Waterproof Hiking Boots.

      Thank you!  I did have a good day - spent too much money of course but when your husband gives you his credit card and tells you to buy something nice - well, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!  LOL!

      I know it sucks but a pound is still better than nothing.

      Question! Your surgery date is showing as 07/29/1965. Is the year correct?

  12. So I have a hernia repair surgery scheduled for the 16th, prayers appreciated.

    1. cinwa

      cinwa

      I've had hernia surgery since my bypass (bilateral femoral and the removal of a large mesh that was placed over an umbilical hernia when I had the RNY).

      They weren't too bad.

      I'll be thinking of you.

  20. Well didn't really stick to day 3 5-day pouch test today. Ate quite a bit actually BUT it was all protein or veggie I picked at least. Small victory none the less.

  21. Does anyone take Benadryl? One week out of surgery feeling GREAT but want to take a Benadryl to help me sleep?

    1. cinwa

      I used it to help me sleep - it was reasonably successful.

  22. I know, I know, not a good idea, but the Oreo thins are pretty cool, and I can stop at 1.

      If one satisfies you Tom then there's no harm. For me - it's easier to have none in the first place. One sniff and I've got a battle on my hands.
