    I slows down significantly. Right now your stomach is so small and swollen that everything you put in pushes gas out to make room. Once the swelling goes down you will hardly notice anymore and it is not projectile burping that it is now. But it all the swelling.

    Hi bigdogluver, thank you for your "welcome". I'm in awe of your courage and stand at the very beginning of my new life. I have made the decision, I have Dr Almanza assigned to me and am waiting on tender hooks to see if I will be accepted as a candidate. Best of luck to you on your journey! I have two senior dogs, by the way, a beautiful sassy blue eyed Aussie and a perfectly sweet golden lab that keep me in good spirits. I'm a big dog luver, too.

Another Stall

by bigdogluver on 05-02-2017 at 06:45 AM
Can't believe it, I'm in another stall. It's been going on for over a week now. It's my second stall and I just can't seem to beat it. I've tried more exercise, more food, less food - nothing works. I started on solid foods and I know my body is getting used to it but I'm tired of being patient. My nutritionist is useless in terms of giving me ideas that would help me.

I've got 2 days to go until surgery and what a stress ride it has been. Two weeks ago I broke a tooth and had it pulled (money out, lots of pain). Then, 5 days ago, the spouse needed new tires and they are expensive (money out, lots of pain). THEN, yesterday, had plumping problems and basement floored (money out, lots and lots of pain).

I wonder if a greater Being is trying to toughen me up for the operation. Actually, it's having the opposite effect. I'm extremely stressed,

One Daya Before Pre-op Diet, 2 Weeks Before Surgery

by bigdogluver on 03-06-2017 at 10:28 AM
My doctor gave me 3 pre-op diet options: all protein shakes, or only lean meat and veggies, or a mix of both. I really want to lose some weight and I'm not sure what option will be best for me. My plan for now is to start out with the shakes and trade off with the meal plan, on every other day. But, I wish I knew which option would be the best for me. What a pain.

I've been on pain meds since my tooth extractions and I'm so sick of it. I want the pain to stop so that I don't
