    Re: Acid Relux ?

    I took an antacid for 30 days. I ended up getting heartburn really bad on day 31. He had me take Omeprazole for one more week and then I was fine. At 3 months post-op, I had a MS relapse, was on...

    Re: OMG So Embarrassed

    Re: Bye bye gallbladder

    Re: Talk to me about the 3-week stall...

    Steroids in any dose or delivery of said steroids are the devil! I despise them. As soon as my neurologist says she's ready for me to have them (hopefully within the next month because I'm over...

    Re: No restriction 2 weeks out?

    I struggled to get my water in. I had immediate restriction. I had to set a timer for every 15 minutes to remind myself because I was always so full. That has changed some but not like it has for...

    Re: New From Las Vegas

    I love Dr. V! He has a YouTube channel also. He's very informative and he's funny. I don't watch him when my children are in ear shot though because he doesn't have a filter for his viewing audience....

    I had Blue Cross and my BMI was supposed to be at least 35. I even lost some weight before my surgery. It was exactly 2 weeks after my doctor submitted for approval before they approved. Blue cross...

    Re: Protein

    Bariatric store dot com sells sample packs so you can try it before you buy a big bag of it. That's what I did. $3.99 for 2 packs.

    Ya, I have a half bag of that myself because I can't stomach it. The only unflavored that I had that was truly unflavored was Genepro unflavored. I go to the Vitamin Shoppe and buy Isopure low carb...

    I'm glad it's possible because I am desperately in need of this. If I get another all day migraine just from chewing, I swear I may take the tooth out myself!

    I went to my dentist appointment today. They're taking 3 teeth out on the 25th and she asked me if I can take antibiotics after my weight loss surgery... I said "I think so?" but wasn't sure. Has...

    Re: I'm Leaving Today!! Surgery Wednesday!

    Yay! I'd be more nervous about the plane ride. I have to take anxiety meds to get on a plane. If you can fly, you will do just fine with surgery. No, I'm not afraid to fly. What would give you that...
