    Glad you got some lovely traveling in. Sounds lovely. Good luck on your surgery. Hopefully it will bring you some relief. Have fun and enjoy the holidays. I am off until the 26th but so much to do with having 4 kids. My son comes in on the 24th. I am so excited. He would have come sooner but went on a cruise with his father and step mother. My ex is really inconsiderate and scheduled it even though he knew that my son was supposed to come here. He could have done it a bit earlier but....ugh. Anyways, I am just glad he will be home soon. He goes to college in Missouri so he lives with his dad now. It has been a little over year since he moved when he started college. Merry Christmas to you and your family!! Enjoy all your meet ups with friends. Sounds fabulous!!

I posted my situation of having an invasive surgery for diverticulitis and a fistula dated 9-3-17. I was admitted to Cooper hospital in NJ which is an hour away from me. I spent 7 days there with an infection/diverticulitis. They were going to do the surgery but decided they would wait until the infection cleared up. The reason I had to travel so far is no one will do this invasive surgery where I live. So, I'm discharged with antibiotics and after 2 weeks I did my follow up with my surgeon to get

Hello everyone! Here's my story. Starting in 2010 I started dieting to lose weight for knee surgery. I did not want to lose it fast so I really took my time. It took 7 yrs. to get 40 lbs.off but I felt it was going in the right direction. Doctors discovered a fistula and I have diverticulitis. With the fistula, my colon is attaching to my bladder and has created a hole in my bladder and it triggers diverticulitis attacks. My surgeon told me in July 2016, I had to have Bariatric surgery to make surgery

Stagnant weight loss

My surgery was on April 26, 2017 and I've lost 57 lbs. But now I'm stagnant for 2 weeks. Any suggestions or advise on how to "move the scale"? I'm a little frustrated and I'm not doing anything different. HELP!
