    Hi Sandra! How are you doing? I started an accelerated nursing school back in June so I only have a couple of minutes a week or two weeks to come on here and see what's new. Unfortunately, my stomach is about the same size it was 6 months ago, but I'm sure I'll reach my goal. At this point, I doubt my stomach will change much without me actually exercising so I'll be making time for that I hope everything is going great for you!

    Hi Sandra and thank you! At this point I need to start working out with weights in order to lose weight and tone up at the same time And you're right - we definitely have to wait until time has passed before any more surgery like a tummy tuck. I doubt I'll get one of those, but if I had a big apron I might. We shall see!

    I went to the doctor for BP as a follow up from the previous appointment. Guess what ???! He prescribed another pill !! He then said with the weight loss I should be able to get off ALL my BP meds, eventually. And some others as well. I am feeling better. I am going to Wal-mart today to get some more Premier Protein shakes. That seems the only way I can get my 60 g's in and my 64 oz. of liquids. I get things at the store that are high in protein, but I can not eat a whole serving yet. Nor do I really want to. My husband is a good garbage disposal...he eats the leftovers. Sometimes he tells me he wouldn't mind if I bought some more of an item. However, he may be too good at being a disposal. Sometimes I do not eat it all and intend to eat it at my next meal and when I go to get it, it is not there.
    I can tell I am getting better, too.
    I hope everything is going well with you. Take care. (psst...I am at 188)

    I was having a no good, horrible, very bad day. 1] lack of sleep due to heartburn, 2] I am using a breathing mask for sleep apnea and I am having trouble sleeping for more than 5 hours with it [ I am suppose to be sleeping 8] . 3] Acid build up keeps me nauseated 4] can not seem to get full amount of protein and liquids down [ I could do it prior to surgery and for a few weeks after but not anymore] and to top it off my blood pressure has gone way up. It all added up to a very bad day.
    I am better now except for my BP. I saw the doctor on the 16th and she prescribed Prilosec and a new blood pressure medication. I have to give both of them time to get in my system.

3 week post op

by Sandra3 on 07-21-2019 at 03:39 AM
Beside my big scare last week, and three days in hospital again, things have been back to normal for the past 9 days. I still have little pains here and there, can't really carry anything heavy but that's ok.

I banned all meds in tablets (still have to take a PPi for 3 months to avoid ulcers), switched to capsules I can open, and do the same with vitamins. So far so good, and the awful horse pill is waiting for my next post-op in August, to be discussed with the surgeon. I hope I

Quack quack

by Sandra3 on 07-18-2019 at 01:25 AM
Two months ago, a wild duck established camp on our patio, in the concrete flower boxes. We didn't see her right away because the was hidden in the flowers, but when she was discovered we could see 12 eggs in her nest.

One month ago, 11 ducklings were born, one egg didn't hatch properly, and two ducklings died early, they were smaller and not walking well, I guess they had some kind of genetic issue.

Tomorrow, nine ducklings turn one month old!
Since we live

Day 13: complications

by Sandra3 on 07-14-2019 at 11:56 PM
On Wednesday early evening, I had a friend over, we were walking in the garden when I suddenly had a really acute belly pain. Was so weird! It started around 6PM, when I was drinking water.

My last small meal was at 4 PM, dinner at noon etc..so I went first to the ER next to home, then after two hours, since they were doing nothing, I remembered my surgeon wrote his mobile number on one of the script, so I called him.

I could barely talk the pain was so bad, he said

My rescue surgery

by Sandra3 on 07-03-2019 at 12:26 PM
After months of pain and suffering I finally got my surgery Friday, five days ago.

My sleeve was working fine and my weight great until (long story short for those who didn't follow) my monthly very heavy bleeding became so bad I became very anemic, got several issues from it, I got several infections in October, then from lung infections asthma started, then it became hell.

During a really bad series of asthma attacks I had huge pain in the chest on Nov 7, a few

Surgery on Friday!!

by Sandra3 on 06-25-2019 at 05:08 PM
After meeting with two new surgeons in May, I saw again one of those two on Monday, but at the same time also organized an appointment with an other "rescue" surgeon, but this time working in a private hospital.
Long story short, I always preferred going for public hospitals but couldn't cope any longer!!

When the fourth surgeon (public) said "it was going to be complicated and I needed to do more exams" ....then she said I was going to have surgery in October
