  1. Miralax???

    I am 1 month post op and am having discomfort due to constipation. Of course it's a holiday weekend or else I would call the doctor. Nothing painful just a full feeling. He
    Does anyone know if Miralax is OK to use?
  2. Only 100 lbs to go!

    I started my walking yesterday! 18 days post-op. I walked 2.2 miles for 45 minutes. It felt great! I have so much more energy and spring in my step minus the 35 lbs I have lost since starting this journey in December. I have lost 15 LBS since surgery. I know 100lbs is a lot but I know I can do it! I know that I can lose weight if I watch my diet and walk. I have done it before. The difference this time is that i have my sleeve for support! I do not even miss the junk I used to eat. I FEEL so good ...
  3. 2 days out update

    Hi friends!
    Well, I wanted to tell you all how well I am doing! I had my surgery at Lehigh Valley Hospital by Dr. Richard Borse and it couldn't have gone any better!

I had some Won Ton soup last night at 7 ( minus wontons , of course) maybe it was the salt in that. My family ordered take out and I got soup and didn't feel left out at all!

  5. Tomorrow is my day!!

    Hi all,
    We'll I made it through the pre-op diet! Down about 15 LBS IN 2 weeks! It was hard and yes I cheated a little but, with only bites of food. Not hog wild! I am SO tired of thinking about this procedure and being nervous! I am at "whatever". I have to be at the hospital that is 50 minutes away, at 5:00 AM!!! I am the first one scheduled tomorrow!! Yeah!!! I won't have to worry all day but I will get to recuperate all day! The time is OK. I wouldn't be able to sleep tonight ...
