    When you have time, could you take a look for me here?
    https://www.gastricsleeve.com/forum/...ad.php?t=68545
    It is a question that has been on my mind for some time now.
    Finding an answer proves to be difficult and I would very much appreciate you looking into it.
    I value your opinion very much!

    O my goodness...
    I cannot begin to comprehend how p*sssed and disappointed you must feel!
    He is clearly out of his ....ing mind!
    But then again, he IS French, n'est pas?

    Overseas to were?
    I mean, technically speaking, you are overseas right now...
    Were would you have to move to?

    Don't you have insurance from the company you or your hubby work for?
    This clearly is a medical issue, not?

    Are you in much pain right now?
    Can you wait much longer?

    I'll pray for you that things will improve anytime soon now!

    Hi Sandra,
    Everything okay?
    Do you have a date for your surgery yet?

    May sounds good!
    Let's do that!

    I will keep my fingers crossed that it will be "just" a virus!
    Actually, I think it is, those things are really contagious.
    I am glad your lungs are doing better and I sure hope that surgeon will do the repairs that need to be done very, very soon!
    Any chance on that?
    You have waited long enough now!

    Keep me posted, if you will, also on the "no snacking, still getting enough calories and stay in moderate carb range" thing?

    O?
    That is weird...
    Those veggies I mean.
    I do hope that your surgeon can tell you more on what is going on.

    I skipped one snack in the morning and I just drink my proteÔne shake as a snack between breakfast and lunch.
    And I skipped my 9.00 pm snack.
    Instead I eat half an orange as "dessert".
    But from lunch until dinner I start to graze, I want something to eat around 4 pm.
    And also without my mid day snacks I don't get enough calories in.
    But I don't like the grazing though.
    Could be an old habit coming back...

    Sandra, Ann2 is traveling over the winter (and having a ball)! I'm sure she'll be back on line in a bit.
    Hope you are doing well!

    I totally get it. Well I hope all your tests come back well. I get it. Busy here too. All the holidays are coming, 2 December bdays, 1 January, and 1 February. And work has been super busy with all the hurricanes since I work in the insurance industry and our company is National. (We also have an International branch but I work only the US side.) I am so eager to hear about your surgery and your results. Wishing you lots of luck!!
    Grosses bises! Christie

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
