    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.

    Hi Sandra!
    How are you doing on your preop diet! Your surgery is less than two weeks away! How are you feeling?
    Best,

Update!

by Sandra3 on 03-03-2019 at 01:41 AM
I came back yesterday from the hospital, had my first surgery (partial hysterectomy) on Friday.
It took may be three hours but the surgeon did a great job, with the help of the Da Vinci robot.....and many other people...
It was tricky since adhesions are all over the place and it takes time to cut it all. But no more hemorrhages for me from now on!! What a relieve! He also made a repair on an hernia.

Since it was an endoscopy surgery, I'm still having the gas pain in

3 years

by Sandra3 on 02-05-2019 at 03:40 AM
Hello friends!!

When I reached two years I was happy that my surgeon's goal/prediction was reached, I felt great besides a few hick ups...life was good...

My 3 years anniversary was a few days ago but I was in no condition to communicate. This time it's different.

I just came back from a one week at the hospital for tests, and since they asked me to stop the PPI for the tests, I became even more sick, my asthma was so out of control I had so see the pneumologist

Happy about gaining!!!

by Sandra3 on 01-12-2019 at 01:02 AM
Hello friends!!

On Wednesday, I was not that happy when the scale showed a 4 pounds gain. So grand total was 24 pounds, I could see it was spiraling, I usually never take cortisone that long and since I felt better decided to stop the treatment.

I gained back I liter!!! yeah!!! so happy for once about gaining!!!

But after the tests, she said she wanted to increase

Last New year's eve I was sick, when to the ER, got strong cortisone, gained like 10 pounds, my suits was tight but I could wear it...lost it in about 4 or 5 months, but I could

Making new soup in an old pot

by Sandra3 on 12-22-2018 at 07:42 PM
I'm always about balance in diet, did study nutrition for more than two years, and currently study naturopathy, because I think it's always better to try to prevent or treat the whole person, instead of treating just symptoms.

Nutrition is really a way of prevention, and sometimes can also be a "cure".

A French doctor wrote an interesting book, I was reading it about 15 years ago, indeed he didn't have access to today's research about colon absorption etc
