    Sandra, thank you much for your personal response. I started taking the Arnicare "Arthritis" tabs this past Saturday, not sure if psychosomatic but I believe I am starting to see some slight improvements. Going to continue to see how it progresses. I have a doc and nut appointment on 3/31 so going to discuss more with them regarding what is an acceptable way for me to add the tumeric into my diet. Like you said, maybe as simple as adding as a spice. My sleeve has not given me any problems so far with spicier foods that I love. Thank you again for your response and have a great week.

    Thanks for your reply, I am already in touch with other surgeons. My health, except for managed high blood pressure is quite good irregardless of my weight. This is the very reason I did not get extreme about loosing the weight. I'm just too big now to move about comfortably and I am raising a special needs grandchild. I need to live longer and be happy.

    I don't know why I was denied. I questioned the denial and after a few lame excuses I was told they would talk to the Dr. and get back to me tomorrow. My heart is on the ground

    Hi Sandra3, thank you for your "welcome". I'm in awe of your courage as I stand at the very beginning of my new life. I have made the decision to have the sleeve. I am waiting on tender hooks to see if I will be accepted as a candidate. Best of luck to you on your journey!

    Thanks a ton S3! I feel like a different person and folks who haven't seen me for a while have no clue initially who I am. Pretty damn funny at times. I'm working hard and appreciating myself for the first time in a while. Thank you for the compliment....Al

    Thanks! First 100 lbs. down. The photos show -70 lbs. as I lost 30 prior to the procedure. I wish I had taken pics when I first started, but I'm excited about my progress and am sticking with it!

    Hey girl, how are you doing? I am doing great! I am below my goal weight. Last year this time I was counting down the days to go to Mexico and have this surgery done, it hard to believe it is one year already. I pray you are doing good also, keep in touch

Back on PPI-pain after 5 days...argh!!!

by Sandra3 on 05-13-2019 at 10:17 AM
So...I couldn't make it to 7 days! H2 was not strong enough...shame...

Early Sunday, reflux was so so bad I decided to go back on my PPI...and had to take 80 mg at first, it was soooo bad.

Today, after a long discussion with my friend (pharmacist) and an other (less interesting, he only talks about meds) with my cousin, also pharmacist, I finally decided to try an other approach.

Since my last research does show that the hernia is raising my stress level

Trying to stop the PPI...again...and surprise!

by Sandra3 on 05-10-2019 at 09:01 AM
On Wednesday, I realized that my GP was off on holidays, and since I was not going to wait until next week, I spoke to the nurse, and decided to give a try to the H2(Zantac).
It's been three days, I did lower my carbs a bit, but not that much...and surprise!!
6 pounds lower!!!
So I won't jump up and down right now since it has to be showing up several times on the scale to be "real" and not just water retention getting better...
But the encouraging thing :

New whale...new scale...

by Sandra3 on 05-07-2019 at 02:56 AM
The last past months since October feel like it's been one setback after an other.

And with many issues pilling up, one that sub-stain hard and strong is weight regain. I feel like a whale again.

After I was done with months of prednisone, I was hoping in February to see my weight go down, like it did since the sleeve. One week of prednisone would make me gain like 5 kgs (5 months out) but 3 weeks later it was all gone! same thing happened when I was like 18 months

Veggies or no veggies...

by Sandra3 on 04-12-2019 at 02:46 AM
Katrina made an interesting post about apples a few days ago, I will share my last experiment with veggies. So weird....I don't know what's going on!

Before the sleeve, I had a hard time eating veggies, because my kind of IBS couldn't stand fibers, so I was limited in my choices.

Post sleeve, for some mysterious reasons, I was able to eat many more veggies!! My IBS was almost gone!
But a few veggies I liked and could eat before sleeve with no issue (cruciferous:

Ready? go!! exercise starts in two weeks!! yeah!!

by Sandra3 on 04-01-2019 at 04:33 PM
I had my one month post-op this morning (hysterectomy to stop hemorrhages)
so far I'm doing great, still little pains but no more bleeding.

The surgeon seemed very happy about all the scars and cleared me to start (finally!!!!) my exercise routine in two weeks!! Counting the days!

Pathology report was good too. I'm very glad I did follow my instinct and went for the "full surgery" and not the conservative. Because the report did show several issues
