    Re: Chewable Vitamins

    Talk to your nutritionist. I used ProCare Health chewables that you order online. Nothing over-the-counter will work. I was told bariatric vitamins for life.

    Re: Getting There

    Re: Hi I'm new

    It is true that obesity puts you at a super high risk for complications, even death, if you do get Covid. I think you're making the right decision.

    Re: Widow to Weight Loss

    So sorry about the loss of your husband, I can't even imagine. As far as your weight, the sleeve is a lifesaver. I was also self pay, but I figured it was only about half the price of a new car. ...

    Re: concerned

    1. Immediately after surgery you will have to sip your water. Later on you can drink normally.
    2. Never heard of kidney problems, but that would be a question for your surgeon
    3. You will...

    Re: Crunchy - so tired of soft and liquids

    It is super important to follow every rule they gave you, especially the first 6 weeks. Your stomach is healing. That's why (for me) the first 2 weeks were liquid, 3rd week super mushy food, and so...

    Re: Pain after gastric sleeve surgery

    My pain was not bad at all. The only real pain was when they woke me up from surgery, but very short lived. I think I took pain meds for only 2 or 3 days.
