  1. Back on PPI-pain after 5 days...argh!!!

    So...I couldn't make it to 7 days! H2 was not strong enough...shame...

    Early Sunday, reflux was so so bad I decided to go back on my PPI...and had to take 80 mg at first, it was soooo bad.

    Today, after a long discussion with my friend (pharmacist) and an other (less interesting, he only talks about meds) with my cousin, also pharmacist, I finally decided to try an other approach.

    Since my last research does show that the hernia is raising my stress level ...

    I had a wonderful Mother's Day with my family yesterday. We went to my favorite restaurant for brunch, and only the start of my "treat yo self" day. Oh boy! I had steak and eggs with rosemary potatoes and 3 mimosas for lunch. Came home and had a bowl of blueberry cream pie ice cream followed by a slice of pizza. Took a nice long nap. ...
  3. Trying to stop the PPI...again...and surprise!

    On Wednesday, I realized that my GP was off on holidays, and since I was not going to wait until next week, I spoke to the nurse, and decided to give a try to the H2(Zantac).
    It's been three days, I did lower my carbs a bit, but not that much...and surprise!!
    6 pounds lower!!!
    So I won't jump up and down right now since it has to be showing up several times on the scale to be "real" and not just water retention getting better...

  4. New whale...new scale...

    The last past months since October feel like it's been one setback after an other.

    And with many issues pilling up, one that sub-stain hard and strong is weight regain. I feel like a whale again.

    After I was done with months of prednisone, I was hoping in February to see my weight go down, like it did since the sleeve. One week of prednisone would make me gain like 5 kgs (5 months out) but 3 weeks later it was all gone! same thing happened when I was like 18 months ...
  5. Fed BCBS anyone? Approved/Denied?

    Hey guys! Iím new here. Iím scheduled for sleeve surgery this Thursday, the 25th. However.....we are STILL waiting on my insurance approval!!! Nothing like cutting it close. Just wondering if anyone has Fed BCBS insurance and if you got denied, what was the reason? Or if you got approved, how long did it take? My insurance coordinator submitted everything last Monday but I have a bad feeling Iím going to be denied....
