  7. I'm feeling the same way!!!!! How much have you lost!?? I'm down 21lbs in 22 days

  8. hey I had a gastric bypass revision from lapband also.I'm almost 7 months out and could not be happier...just wanted to say Hi!

  9. Oh ok. Can you please send it to me. I can give you my email. My drs office said I could have them now.. After last night I'm like no way Jose!!! I have no desire to drink anything but Im hungry. I think it's a mind game. Because I can go all day just having one ad jello.
  10. I can have sf jello and sf pudding, cream of wheat, and scrambled eggs. I tried mashed potatoes and because of the carbs I was told it caused a killer stomach ache for 2 1/2 hours. I was hunched over screaming crying. I couldn't walk. I'm so scared to eat anything. I can't even describe the pain. I've lost 21 lbs. however I'm starving I guess I had to just let it pass. But come on.. I never want to go through that again. I meet with my surgeon tomorrow. I'll ask him about it then. Has this happened to you? Any advice??
  11. I Need Some Words Of Advice.. Please!

    SweetP.. Thank you. <3 I love how fast you all responded to my cry for help. I tried some mashed potatoes tonight and I thought I was going to die! That pain.. I can't even put into words. My support lady from my surgeons office said its from the carbs and it should pass in a couple hours. Oh boy Im scared to eat those again!!
