  1. Sometimes life just kicks you in the ass. A while back, I would say 2 years ago, I stepped on the scale and it said 157. I was elated, I finally did it. I was under 175 for the first time since 7th grade. So I go through a hard time~~Dr says I'm paranoid schizophrenic that's why I don't hardly eat and throw up what I do eat. So they change my meds and all I can do is eat eat and eat more. They put me on a toxic level of Lithium and I can't stop drinking milk, it's like I can't get enough. So after having a bad episode psychotic one, they change my meds and all I can eat is twizzlers. I'd rather be in the psych ward. There you can control your eating. So now that none of my clothes fit, I'm just going to wear my sweats and hide this sagging skin.
    If you would like hit me up with your day and any help.

    Reading your posts, you must have been the lady who I was with when we were in Dr. Almanza's office as he spoke to us about the surgery right before our surgery. Is that you? The pic looks like you but am not sure lol...You had a room on the 6th floor next to me then they moved us lol.....

    Anyway, sorry to hear you are having problems. I haven't thrown up yet but I have come close lol....
    It is really weird but I have that pinching feeling too off and on..on my left side....it doesn't really hurt but it is very noticeable.....it isn't even at the left incision but seems to be well below it.......Has anyone else experienced it and do they know what it is?????????????????????? I swear I felt it once or twice on my right side too but not near as frequent as the left...

    I lost 16 pounds since surgery.....15 the first week and only 1 the second week lol......I think it will come off as it wants to lol with both ups and downs just like dieting lol......I figure if I'm taking in less than what I used to.....which I definitely know I am it will come off eventually.....I had diarrhea too but it does seem to depend almost directly on what I'm consuming....For those that have constipation,, I found a great product that is apparently new by Fiber One....it is gummy fruit chews with 3 grams of fiber.....seems to work well for me....

    Anyway, hope you start doing better....keep me posted and let me know what you dr. says about that pinching feeling.....take care
  3. I had surgery 2 weeks ago and have had complications. I've had diarrhea since I got back to the states. I've started throwing up. I have a sharp pain in my left side like there is a pinching feeling inside and it won't stretch out it just bundles up. I've tried to make an appt with my bariatric surgeon that did both lap bands but he refuses to see me since I went to mexico. So much for keeping a patient. I found another one that will see me and takes my insurance. So if you have any suggestions I'm listening. Hope you are losing the weight, God bless, and take care.
  4. Surgery was yesterday, I'm in pain from the gas and a little weak but it's the stupid drain that hangs down your belly that is a pain in the butt. All others from yesterday are doing well just sore. I had my band taken out and then doctor Almanza did the sleeve so I have to use my sippy cup which really helped cause without it you take too big of water and it kills going down. Brought bai5 coconut water 5 calorie per serving so 10 calories ina bottle. I can start drinking it tomorrow. The hotel is amazing and the food looks fabulously delicious buti can only look but if you bring someone they will have no problems choosing something. I can't have coffee until next week which is bad. Paid cash for a single room but they had none ready so I had to hang out in a double room until mine was ready. Don't plan on sleeping in cause they start every test about 8. Bring something to read because they only have 2 English channels. Well that is all I have now. Good luck, god bless and welcome to your new life.

  9. Hi,So far, so good. It has been 6 days since my surgery and I am heading back to work tomorrow. The main advice I would give you on traveling alone is to pack lighly. On the return trip you will not want to have a heavy bag. I met friends as soon as I got there and you will have a roomate. Every one is on the same hall and very supportive. Pack hand sanitizer, they did not have it in the hospital like American hospitals. Let me know how it goes. God bless you. Michelle

Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I've been fat my whole life. I was emotionally devastated in the 7th grade while I was in gym class and the coach weighed you and then said out loud 175 so everyone could hear. I was called hungry, hungry hippo from then on. My highest weight ended Mar 2014 at 280 lbs. I went to FL to see him and I was just ashamed at how I had let myself go. I had gained 80 lbs since I met him and he still loved me. I told him he would never see me like that again. So he came out a couple of weeks ago, I'm at 240 now. I just want to get to that 175 mark so I can say I did it. I want to be healthy. My mother and I had the lap band surgery and both of us had to get them taken out. My mom almost died because her band twisted cutting off any room for food or liquid to go down so she almost died. Mine came apart twice so now I'm getting the sleeve. That is what my mother had done after she started gaining weight from having the band removed. I'm 45, 1 daughter 26 years old, and 3 Chihuahua's.
Golf and walking the 3 chihuahua's I have

Here I go AGAIN with my pity me story. I had my surgery in Mexico and was very successful. I lost a total of 120 lbs and went from a size 28 to a 10. My husband was in FL and I was at home in CO. He was there taking care of his father who had dementia, I found it strange that the caretaker knew more about our marriage than I did. So he told me if I wanted to save our marriage I would come see him. At this time I weighed 240 lbs. This is after our wedding in Las Vegas on 12-12-12 at 12:00

Change of plans

by khunter719 on 08-06-2014 at 02:35 PM

Well the doctor's office called and he switched surgery from the 13th to the 12th of next week. So today is my last day to eat what I want and then it is off to a 5 day pre-op, fun but it has to be done. I did it when I had the 2 lap bands put in so I can do it now. I'm still living through my husband not wanting me to get the surgery but he says he just wants me to be happy. When I reach 175 lbs I'll be happy. Read up on how to cross the border without a problem. I have 2

Today, Today, Today. My mother went to Mexico and had a lap band put in, she lost 140 lbs and was very happy. Then she got sick and was throwing up anything she tried to put in her. Found out that her band had twisted and cut off any way to get nutrition in her so she almost died of malnutrition. The weight loss surgeon on call that night came and removed it immediately. She started gaining weight again, so she went to Mexico and had the gastric sleeve done. All went well and
