  10. I just wanted to say Hey to all. I had my surgery the day after Valentines day!! I have been doing pretty good. Except for the pain in my left side. has anyone else experienced this. It is really bad and not getting better. I have only lost 14 pds at this point I feel really discouraged. Between not loosing and the pain... its not a walk in the park for sure. I am glad i found this forum so i can talk to some people that are going through what i am and at the same time.
  11. I had Gastric by pass a little over three weeks ago, the day after Valentines day. I am doing good with eating and bowel movements but nor with protein shakes but trying. The only thing that is hurting me really bad... I mean to the point of i have to get my husband to help me get off the cough... Is my left side. I know that is were all the big instruments went in and all the work was done. It was getting better and then about three days ago a new more intense pain started. It is on my left side right beside my hip bone and between my rib cage and it goes around to my back. if i push on my s
  12. When's your surgery? Hope you're doing well. I'm doing alot better with my liquid diet. Good luck, and keep me posted.

  13. I am going through the same thing... I am one the fourth day of my deit and my surgery is Feb. 15th. The first three days were horrible but today I have done really good... Good LUCK!! someone else said on here and I loved it... "Nothing taste as good as skinny feels"

  15. I was doing all of my pre op testing today. I was setting in the waiting room, thinking this very thing. I wonder if i was the only one going through this. I went and had my "last Meal" after the testing. I basically said good bye to the way I eat now. It does feel like loosing a friend. I always depend on food when i am upset or stressed. i think learning to control my "head" hunger will be very hard for me. I don't have a set surgery date yet but they said mid February. If everything comes back good. I m ready to start this journey but I know it won't be easy. What in life is easy, that is
