    Good morning! I am doing fantastic. My husband and I have started walking and doing stretches and running in the pool everyday (or almost every day). I feel great and have not experienced any issues or problems. I will have lab work done next Friday and then visit doctor the following week to make sure all of my labs are good. I have been taking all of my vitamins, faithfully, so I don't expect any issues. Off of 2 meds and drastically reduced dosage on another one - I expect to be off of it by the time I go to the doctor. Thanks for checking in on me.

    How are you doing? Hope your tummy is still doing ok and not giving you any problems. I hope you have a great day and a wonderful weekend!
    - Pam

    Dylee you look awesome!! It's been 7 months and I've lost 68 pounds. It's been a wonderful journey. Congrats on your succuss!
  6. Loving my sleeve! My goal was 140 lbs. I am maintained at 133 lbs. I weigh every morning and stay on top of my weight. I eat just about anything I want, but it's all in moderation. Portion size had always been my problem. With my sleeve, I get full so easy that I just quit eating. Leaving food on my plate does not bother me anymore. I have always had a weight problem, and thankfully that's not a problem anymore!

  9. I have received wonderful messages from so many people that I cannot respond individually to everyone. I want to thank each of you for your thoughtfulness and encouraging Words! I pray for your success and good health and happiness! TexasLady

Tube in nose

by TexasLady on 07-25-2012 at 12:05 PM
[FONTIf your doctor is one who likes use a nose tube, consider yourself lucky. I was really dreading that tube. I have a very small nose path and was afraid it would be hard for them to get it in place. But wouldn't you know they make all size tubes. LOL! Afterwards I was so glad I had it. I never felt any discomfort from it, and it kept me from experiencing all the gas pain that most people suffer from. I had no gas pain whatsoever.

22 Days Since surgery: Cold turkey on reg. meds: Morphine Drug Reaction

by TexasLady on 07-25-2012 at 11:15 AM
Hi everyone, I know my "friends" have been wondering what happened to me. Things did not go so well for me after surgery. My surgery went fine, but my experience at Baylor Plano can be best described as "I've been to hell and back by way of the twilight zone". *I won't even go into the non-existing healthcare, but I had a very bad drug reaction to the morphine. I honestly thought I was going to die. Plus, I had no idea that I would not have any of my medications during my stay

Its been a tough road - Surgery in 7 hours - Helpful tips for Eating!

by TexasLady on 07-03-2012 at 01:47 AM
[QUOTE]I want to thank everyone for all their encouragement and support for me not to give up and to continue with my surgery date of July 3, after the death of my mother.

It was a very difficult week planning a funeral and getting my pre-opt tests done, going through registration (which was a nightmare because of so many mistakes made at the hospital) and my pre-opt doctors appointment. It was difficult, but I stayed focused and God walked very close to me, giving me strength

Too many decisions - death in family - advice please

by TexasLady on 06-25-2012 at 02:01 AM
Hi everyone. I joined this forum early June with a surgery date of June 20. I was not comfortable with my doctor so I changed to Dr. Stephen Hamn. They first gave me a surgery date of June 28, but later called me back saying the new girl had made a mistake. Now my surgery date is July 3. So, what's the problem you ask. My mom went to be with the Lord Sunday morning. I received the call at 4:42 A.M. Now I don't know what to do. I was so mentally ready for my surgery, but now I have more important

Changed Doctors - Now I'm waiting for a new surgery date

by TexasLady on 06-19-2012 at 01:29 AM
I am so anxious to get sleeved, and this website is a great informational source. I started out with Dr. Nick in Dallas, but our personalities didn't jive. Maybe it was because I was just beginning this journey and had a lot of questions that Dr. Nick didn't have time nor interest to answer. Plus, I didn't get the support from my advocate there. I had a surgery date of June 20. Now, I'm having my surgery with Dr. Stephen Hamn in Plano. I have met with him and he had no problem spending time
