  1. I have no idea whats going on, I am 3 months out today , I had my gallbladder out two weeks ago and for some reason I am feeling hungry again? I so scared I am going to eat to much. I feel full but get hungry two hours later. Is something wrong with me? I don't want to stop my weight loss but today i actually at carbs which I never do. I had a Kashi cereal bar and a small handful of dry cheerios?
  2. No I went alone, I had a complication and stayed in the hospital the a second day and they still held my room for me when I went to the hotel I just told them my name and they sent me right up within 2 minutes .

    Did you have a guest with you when you went? My husband is going, and on the phone they said to make an appointment. . .however - we went last year for his surgery, and we didn't have a reservation, but everything worked out great.
  4. Yes I did know in advance due to having an upper GI. Generally you can tell, there is a raised area in your abdomen, mine was high. I had horrible gerd because of it. If you have a concern you should see your PCP prior to surgery.

    Hey this may be a dumb question, but how do you know if you need a hernia repair? It sounded like you knew this in advance.
  6. Day 15 and doing so much better, Still trying to get the rhythm of how to get in protein and staying hydrated. Have no clue what I should be eating just yet. Cream of chicken soup didn't feel so hot last night. Seemed a little heavy and rich for me. So back to the drawing board. I am working on a bit of plain greek yogurt and I just ad a touch of honey to the spoon for flavor. My biggest challenge is getting in enough liquids not sure how many sips to take per hour.

  8. 11 days post op, I had a tough go of it, I had the sleeve as well as a hernia repair and my body did not do well with the recovery. I was coughing up blood the first two days, could not hold a thing down 5 days out and became so very weak. I caught a cough/cold when I got home making matters worse as the coughing terrified me to the point that I was afraid I would pop my staple line. I started holding down broth and apple juice and water on day 6. Had to go back to work so I try getting all the rest I can in the evenings. I am now holding down protein drinks, Muscle Milk is good, I like the broth from won ton soup as well it's a yummy change from chicken broth. I tried a teaspoon of applesauce last night but that hurt so listen to you tummy if you feel discomfort revert back to the full liquid.
