  1. I have not lost one lbs in a month, could it be my body trying to catch up? Getting worried!
  2. One thing I think they need to work on is, they drop us off at the hotel with no direction on what is to do next. I called the front desk and they gave me the nurses station, nurse said he would be up to take blood in 20 mins. They took hour and 1/2. When I asked about going over to the clinic they said not today, someone will be here around 5. Two nurses showed up at the room took my blood then left.
  3. Well so far, it took an hour to check in to the hotel, been here for for 3 hours, they have asked that I don't have anything to drink until after the blood test. That was suppose to be over an hour ago. im so thirsty. I just called again and he said in 30 mins. My surgery is tomorrow don't know the time yet. Will keep you all posted.

  5. I have my surgery in two days, just sitting at a airport waiting for my flight. I've been on the liquid diet for 6 days...I feel very dizzy, then did the flush yesterday that they ask you todo and got so dehydrated...crazy. Can't wait until this portion is done.

    My surgery was Fri. And I'm doing great. Mexico was fine. Nothing scary about it. The Dr and his staff were the best. Enjoy your new life.

    It was set up by the people at my surgeons office. Call your rep that you set your surgery up with. I was with Dr Almanza and they made the appointment and drove me to and from the appointment.

Can't catch my breath.

I had my surgery 8 days ago, was wondering if anyone else has or had this problem, I'm very short of breath, I go up 3 stairs and I'm winded. Everything else seems to be healing good. It's just the breathing part. Thanks for any and all help.

6 days and counting
