    Did you follow food guidelines. Just finishing PO day 6. Ugh. Please tell me it gets better. What did you eat? Anything!!? I have been doing water, juice, jello, popcycles. How long until you tried something substantial like soup? What happens when you start eating anything again?

    I got very sick from anesthesia. Vomiting every hour on the hour for about 25 hours, now it has slowed down some. Not impressed with the facilities. Could be cleaner IMO. Doctor A was efficient. Have slept 3-4 hours. Limited pain. Drinking. Leak test tomorrow. Feeling good about it. Can't wait to get drain out. Nurse Alex A+. Xo

    Nancy, I'll see you in SD. Feeling a bit nervous I must admit. I don't get in until 5:45, so probably won't see you until later. Here we go!!!

    Hi Nancy. I'm a bit of an idiot poster to this site. I responded to your last message but it posted to my page versus yours. Duh! Lol. Congrats on the 14lbs that's awesome! What time do you get in to San Diego?

    Hi! I am really considering going to Dr. Almanza for surgery, but I am a bit skeptical being that this all seems to good to be true! $4500 in Mexico vs $16,000 in the sates, I just don't know :/ Do you mind if I follow your story? I would love to see your results!

    Hey, still have not had surgery yet due to insurance dragging their feet. I had a slight stall due to sleep study and Endoscopy but things are finally rolling again. My sleep study is tonight so hopefully things progress and I finally get my sleeve!

Can't stomach cold water

by Nancy23 on 04-22-2015 at 12:02 PM
I'm Day 5 post op and can't drink cold water. It's painful when it hits the stomach. I know how important water is to our very being in addition to the weightloss so I drink hot water. It is so soothing and I'm still getting in plain water. If you're having trouble you may want to try it.

Day before Surgery

Having had a terrible travel day filled with three flights that ran late and had me running doesn't come close to ruining my day. When I jumped in the shuttle to head to the hospital -an hour drive due to rush hour our group of 5 were quickly talking and creating memories.

All tests went well - blood and EKG and surgery is at 10am tomorrow. We dined on chicken broth in the restaurant and three of us took a stroll to the grocery store after dinner.

Now it's been a long

I have a three day pre-op diet as prescribed by Dr Almanza but I wanted to start early and get all withdrawals over with. And so it began...i am in day 3 of 18 days and it hasn't been bad except for a few headaches and sluggishness at end of day one. Now I have more energy and I am not hungry Except at meal times.

Here is my breakdown, I am having a shakeology shake with water for breakfast, then cup of coffee with splenda, lunch is GNC Lean Shake, sf jello for snack and another
