  1. @kisten1210 Will you let me know how it goes? That's the EXACT procedure I had the consult for. Good for her ... I feel my stomach jump for her just thinking about it! I am sending her all the best wishes for healing and pain management in the world!
  2. WOW! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for this informative and honest post. I just had my first consult this week - over $20,000 for a tummy tuck (front and back). I hadn't considered Mexico, but I'll be doing some major research. You look amazing .... Congratulations on your transformation!
  3. My big NSV for this week = weighing less than my husband for the first time EVER (we've been together for 34 years!). YAY!!
  4. THIS is the NSV I am looking forward to!! Congratulations!
  5. WOW! Congratulations! I am glad you are seeing "non-scale" victories AND the pounds fall off! YAY!!!
  6. I thought the sweetness of protein shakes would gag me if I had to drink another one, so I totally get where you are coming from. I ended up liking Unjury vanilla the best. Not too sweet and since the vanilla is a mild flavor, I could change it up pretty easily. I make it with half water, half 1% milk. Good luck!
  7. Thanks for all the advice! I went back to protein shakes yesterday, and although the meds still upset my stomach, I think I am feeling better - hopefully, this means this batch of antibiotics are the right ones. Water has been my nemesis since surgery. I realize how important it is, but every sips seems to cause my pouch to twist and revolt in pain. Hot water works better (so that's what I do), but it still gives me spasms. Surgeon wasn't overly concerned (surprising), but said if it's not better at 12 weeks he will be. I am drinking enough to not be dehydrated, but not enough to be truly
  8. The urologist is the one who put me on this last batch of meds (and did an bladder/kidney ultrasound in case there are stones, but I don't have the results yet).
  9. Hi All, I am 10 weeks post-op (WOW, the summer has gone by quickly!) and I developed a UTI at the end of July. Well, it's not going away ... probably for many reasons. One, I am not drinking enough water. Two, it's been resistant to 3 different types of antibiotics. I am on my 4th medication now. Three, doc is concerned about the extra calcium in my urine so they took me off it for a bit. The medication is really hard for my stomach to tolerate, so I have been doing toast and crackers with it. And, I since the pill and the crackers 4x per day are filling me up, I am not getting
  10. What a great attitude. I am so sorry your heart is hurting, but I am glad you aren't taking it out on your body! Hugs! Lori
  11. Ooohhhhh ..... I was so nervous! But, it wasn't that bad at all! Now, I am hoping for some energy. Tomorrow I am 4 weeks post-op and I am still exhausted by the end of the day (and, quite honestly, could take a nap mid-day if I had the time). Have a great weekend! Lori
  12. I am looking forward to actually finding those bones! Lol! Thanks for the insight!
  13. I hear you. I am 15 days out, and if I never see another thick, creamy, shake it will be too soon. The only way I could choke them down was over ice and let the ice dilute them a little. Once I could do THINNNNNN Cream of Wheat (1 week out), I used vanilla protein drink to mix it. Not so bad. Brand wise - Kaiser likes the High Protein Boost -but I don't. I like the Unjury Vanilla made with skim or 1% milk. Good luck. You'll make it! But, that cottage cheese will be the best thing you've ever eaten! Lori
  14. So, yesterday and today a new (yet annoyingly painful) symptom popped up. I am pretty sore under my shoulder blades and sore (although less so) lower back. Any ideas? I don't feel particularly gassy. Thanks! Lori
  15. Wow. Thank you Claire. I am 13 days Post-Op and I am going to print this post and put it in my "important to remember and think about file" so I can refer to it often. Thank you! Lori
