  1. Pain in left shoulder!!

    Has anyone on here ever experienced the gas settling into the shoulder? I woke with it like that yesterday and it is still there today. At first I thought it was a muscle strain from getting in those hospital beds and pulling myself up. But I really think it is the gas settling there because if I hold my arm and take a deep breath it doesnít hurt but if I take one without holding it it is excruciating. Anyone have any ideas? I donít know if I can go another day like this!!
  2. Feeling better everyday!

    I am three days post op and am doing better than I thought I would. I have little to no pain in the incision sites and the gas is finally going away. However I must have messed my shoulder up trying to pull myself up in that hospital bed. At first I thought it was gas but I really think I stressed the muscle. Ice and heat help . But all in all I am doing good.
  3. Surgery Day!!!

    Well the day is finally here! I am so excited but yet a little nervous. This is the day I have been working towards for six months. Can anyone give me advice for the next few days? I would appreciate the thoughts and prayers these coming days.
  4. Update

    Ok I have not been on here in almost a year. I had surgery 6/19/18. I had surgery in Tijuana. My recovery was short. Everything went great. My last A1C when I checked in with y'all last year was 10 it is now 5.2. I have not had diabetes or blood pressure medication since one week after surgery. I was 243 and this process has been great but very slow! It has taken 11 months to get to 199! I just broke 200 a couple days ago. Some things that stand out immediately is chocolate makes me sick! Too much ...
  5. Quick Update

    Doing very well. Had surgery 2 years, 2 months ago, and have lost 127 pounds! I was thrilled at losing 100 pounds but its still coming off. I haven't weighed this since high school. I don't regret having the VSG at all, and I struggled in the beginning... boy did I.
