    I'm doing really well actually! Every day I feel slightly better than the day before. Still have some gas pains once in a while, but I think its just from swallowing air while drinking. My back was incredibly sore from those hotel beds so I went and got a massage yesterday and they had to give me a pre-natal massage since I couldn't lay flat on my belly, lol. I feel like I'm healing well though. I couldn't stomach drinking the antibiotics so I hope that doesn't come back to bite me. I'm eating small amounts of yogurt and cream of chicken soup and that actually feels like real food, its so nice. Down about 12 pounds so far, and really excited about my new life! Sorry to hear you're not feeling that good, give it time. :-)
  2. I'm having difficulty swallowing still. If I stand up straight it's fine. I got my hands on liquid antibiotics so that's good! Anyway I've been doing better this morning but my stomach seem smaller than my throat. Water goes down-hits the wall and feel like bricks as it trickles in. Like I said though today has been better.

    i see you are new to the losers bench! how are you feeling a week out now? glad your surgery went well. i hope mine does too!
  4. Thank you!!! I'm actually doing quite well. I can't say the first few hours weren't a slice of torture but they quickly got better as I took gasx strips, walked around, used a heating pad, etc. Dr.Almanza is great-although he does way too many surgeries in one day. He's an expert but doing 15+ surgeries a day was a little nerve wracking for me. I really like the fact that he has the sleeve and has lost 85 pounds with it. I also liked the fact I wasn't near as full of air with the sleeve than I was with my gall bladder removal in the states! I'm so excited to move on to this next weight loss phase and I'm determined to stick to the rules so I'm successful!
