  1. 10 Months post-op....stopped losing weight

    I am getting discouraged I paid all this money and am down 70lbs in about 10 months. I have been eating a little more, but not nearly what I used to. Is this all I will lose or will it start coming off again? I have been the same weight for the last 3 months.
  2. 13 months : Patellar tendonitis

    So I had my appointment yesterday with the ortho specialist.
    The professor clearly knows his business because just after examination and questioning, even before the X-rays he already knew what was wrong.

    Good news: I don't need surgery, bad news is that I've been in pain for already 8 months with my left knee, now it's both knees and very painful and it could take a while to get better.

    I decided to be bold today and add in some thinned out tomato soup with fat free milk. No issues! Tolerated well and what a welcomed change after the last 3 weeks!

    I am a newbie so don't have much advise to give but I can tell you that I believe that following the doc's instructions to the T is paramount ...
  5. 2 Days Out From Surgery

    I have to admit that I'm just really tired and I didn't feel like doing anything at all today. I had my surgery on February 17th and I spent the night in the hospital which was horrible, but I don't like being in the hospital anyway. Now that I'm home I've been up and walking around, I did dishes and a small load of laundry today. Finally had enough energy to stand in the shower, that was an amazing feeling! I am glued shut, no staples, with tiny pieces of gauze over top and then a clear plastic ...
