    Hi! I noticed your surgery was just before mine (10 days) and wanted to check in and see how you are doing? i'm 5 almost 6 weeks out and couldn't be happier. even with the emergency surgery i'm doing great. i had an emotional break down in his office yesterday as I was asking him what had happened to me that he operated twice and he was so supportive and kind. gave me all the time i needed. he said it's normal for people who have this surgery to be totally exhausted around 6 weeks. physically, emotionally, mentally so don't be surprised if it happens. i'm already eating most regular food anything that might be tough like all the meats he said to cook them in a slow cooker all day and they will be perfectly tender. it's funny seeing 1 meal i cook turn in to like 10. no kidding. doc said to try a baked potato with chilli from wendy's and it lasted me 4 meals lol. I just wanted to let you know i'm thinking of you and am here for you if you need to share anything. Take care,

    Hi Honeybell, I had to move my surgery date out to May 29th. So you are going before me! Let me know how it goes. I'm bringing a fun support friend who speaks some Spanish with me. I have found several people online who had great experiences with him. No complications with any of them. I have been preparing myself mentally as much as possible, lots of good books etc. I found a bariatric counselor too. The sleeve will help us, but it's mostly a mental game long term. How much do you want to lose total? I have 141 lbs to get to my goal, so I hope to lose around 6 lbs. a month over two years, or something like that. I AM SO HAPPY TO MEET YOU AND WISH YOU A SAFE AND HAPPY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY! If you want to email me offlist for support, I can be reached at tretaylor7@gmail.com You are not alone! I'm going in a month after you to the same Dr.!!!!! Best Wishes, Tre` Taylor

    I came with a sippy cup that i used to sip either hot water, tea or the gatorade zero with electrolyte came with 3 in my luggage. Once you explained that at imigration when they check your luggage they will let you pass with them. My after care will be done by my primary care doctor who already give me the paper for blod work at 1 , 3 , 6 9 month post op and a year. I came back also with the film of my leak test to give him for my file hear in canada. I bought a compression stocking at wallmart which help me a lot at the aiport while waiting and walking . I had connection flight. Using it still at home. Wish you all the best dear.

    HI hONEY,

    Everything went PERFECTLY. I never received a level of care like that, from the driver, to the nurses and doctor Q, who was in my room often to check how i felt..... Great experience. Got home on the 6. No pain whatsoever, slight gaz one that past the next day once i realize sipping on hot liquid helped a lot as walking in the hall of my apt lol I am great. I am on full liquid now... My stitches are already closed no pain .... Everything is great... Let me hear from you. Best choice ever

Post Op labs

by Honeybell on 06-28-2015 at 06:05 PM
I am self pay in Mexico, BC/FL would not pay for revision. Now I have scripts for the 3 month labs, & the Dr. has coded them as specific to Bariatric Surgery. My dilemma is.... should I go thru my Ins, or to a lab that has low rates on Wed, [ pay cash] where most of the uninsured go. I am almost paranoid about using my ins......a little voice tells me my acct. is flagged. If I go to Quest Labs expecting my ins to pay & they deny, it will be very expensive, but a part of me wants to give

4 weeks today

by Honeybell on 05-01-2015 at 09:48 AM
Seems like such a long time ago that I went to Tijuana. I have had a great sleeve experience, any issues were very minor. I have lost 16 lbs, the last 2 weeks were down 1, go up 4 oz, lose 6 oz.... I printed the graph from my fitness pal & saw that I was having a lot of carbs....70 on a few days. I decided that was too much dairy, so now I am trying to stay around 30.
I saw a NUT yesterday, she thought I should have approx. 1000 calories, rather than 700, & carbs could go up to 100,

Gas pains after 2 wks ?

by Honeybell on 04-18-2015 at 07:47 AM
I didn't have any gas pains after surgery, but now I do. My back, shoulder & neck are so sore, almost like I am fighting the flu. Is this delayed gas pains?

Also, I seem have to hit the stall at 10 days. I was down 10 lbs in 10 days, but then went up a bit, so I am trying to increase the protein. The inches are coming off, so I am not stressing too much.
Also, I am getting close to 64 oz of water, I don't count decaf coffee or smoothies. It doesn't seem like I am voiding

Question Vets? How much carbs daily?

First, anyone reading this should know that I plan my daily menus and track all my food on My Fitness Pal. So I really do know how much I've eaten on this journey (calories,
