    8 months past RNY

    Hi All, I haven;t written in a long time but I need some support. I have found myself using food again to make myself feel better. I have lost about 70 pounds but I am stuck. I know I need to get back to eating better but since I went back to work full time I just can't. I need some suggestions to get myself back on track. Any suggestions would be great.
  2. Congratulations on your weight loss. I also get dizzy when I stand up from a laying down position. I am about the stop my blood pressure meds I hope.

    Stomach pain after eating! PLEASE HELP ME.

    Hi Im a little over 3 months out and I had pain when eating after surgery for most of the three months. My surgeon figured that I had a little ulcer and that the area that was stitched together was hurting me. I took carafate and prilosec and it helped. Today it is much better.

    Catching up

    I also can relate to taking a bite of pumpkin pie then moving onto to other bad food items like M&M's. I do find that I can't eat a lot so taking bites might be okay. However I think that totally avoiding those trigger foods is the best practice.

  8. 10/15/17 Hello all, I live in Sonoma CA and we are experiencing wild fires that you won't believe. Our house is okay so far but my nerves a shot. I have been snacking because I'm stressed. I can't eat a lot but i'm upset with myself for snacking. I just keep telling myself to stay focused. Any suggestions?

    Panicking!

    My surgeon said that I could drink with straws as long as it didn't hurt, which it didn't so I am back to using straws.

    Hello Everyone, I did it! I had my surgery on 9/11/17. I'm feeling very sore and tired today. Trying to get the energy to go outside for a drive and a walk.

    4 Days to Go!

    Thanks @BurgundyBoy and @Gretta I can't take my ativan until the morning of my surgery because it could interfere with the anesthesia. So, I am just sleeping when I can which is normally early in the morning. I know that I will be okay once Monday rolls around. thanks again for your support.

    4 Days to Go!

    Good Afternoon All, Thank goodness for this forum because my friends are tired of hearing me complain. I am scared and not sleeping and I can't wait till Monday. I have been asking myself why I am nervous. I have had lots of surgeries but I am just very nervous. I feel a pit in my stomach all the time. Ever since my mastectomy in February I have just been nervous about surgery. I think I am also worried about life on the other side. I know its a new world and I am very excited. Yet I still worry but I am dealing with it the best I can. I have taken before pictures but, I want to take more pictures and measurements. Maybe this will keep me occupied. I'm planning on making a collage of my reasons and dreams for and about surgery. Thanks for reading.
