  1. Hi JR, Well I am doing fine, just eating mostly liquids, I havent weight myself because I think it gets me anxious, so I will wait until monday that is my appointment for follow up. Last night I got up to go to the bathroom and dont know what I did when I went back to bed that I have a pain on the left side of my bellybutton that goes all the way to my back, I had to take pain medicine because couldnt sleep. Could I have broken something inside? Does anyone experice this? Thanks being there JR
  2. Hello there! I am 12 days out and doing fine, I am in a pure fase.But I am also experimenting some chest pain like if I was choking! Is this ok? I hope its not that I am swallowing too fast or too much, maybe I am , but it is painfull. Also I lost about 15lbs the first 8 days but havent lost any more since then. I am like stalled. Thought it would take time before stalling. Am I expecting too much? V
  3. Yes I did, thanks for asking, I am doing just fine, with all liquids since thursday. My drain is being removed tomorrow. I have been tryng to drink the protein drinks but they taste just awefull! What can I do about it?? How are u doing Needle?

  5. Hello!! Thank you everyone for being there waiting to hear about how I am doing......Well ¨ I Survived ¨, I am 3 days off and doing very well.The first two days were a bit difficut because of the nausea, apparently some medication for pain wasnt helping with that ,allmost hard to drink liquids, but I am home since yesterday, and feeling much better drinking every 20 mins very slowly. I have a drain that will come off on tuesday, I am a bit swollen on my tummy and my hands and feet but guess It will go away soon.

  7. Hi JR: I went in for a gastric bypass, made all the required examns for gastric bypass and guess what , all the exams came out great! They found an hiatal hernia to be fixed so they told me that the best for me was the sleeve. I guess they are right. I will try to update after the surgery tomorrow. Let me know when you get your surgery date. good luck, V
