    Re: Officially Sleeved!

    The blurry vision is a side effect of some of the anti-nausea medications that are used. If you had the scopolamine patch (little disc behind your ear), that causes massively blurred vision, even for...

    Re: Iím back

    Wow - it sounds like such a fantastic adventure! All of the biking is incredible too. Can't believe you were able to do so much at only 2 months post-op. Truly inspiring! That is definitely a bucket...

    Re: Support Group Humor

    Re: Finally Going to Do It

    Welcome to the forum! I wholeheartedly agree with what all of the others have said. Getting the sleeve is the best money you'll ever spend. I am self-pay as well. I financed over 5 years in order to...

    Re: What a difference a sleeve made!

    Annie- my goodness! You look so incredibly different now, truly transformed. In your heavy picture you look like you are ill - your eyes are dull and distant, and you look about 10 years older (I...
  8. Re: Newly sleeved... pain when swallowing liquids

    I could do little more than wet my mouth early on. Any more than that and it hurt. I drank teeny, tiny sips every 1-2 minutes my first few days home. I even set a timer on my phone to remind me to...

    Re: Are second thoughts normal?

    This ^^^^ by sraeber says it all! It is physically impossible to over eat early on. You simply cannot get in more than just a few bites of food (at least I can't but I am only 4 weeks post op). If...

    Re: Support Group Humor

    This is my support group too! In the comfort of my own home and I don't even need to put on a bra to participate.

    BTW- Anyone else find bras uncomfortable post-op? Can't stand the feeling across...

    Re: Do you get hungry?

    I'm only 4 weeks out but I definitely get hungry, pretty much since day one. I also get ridiculous cravings. Was playing play-doh with my daughter earlier making burgers, hot dogs, french fries,...

    What??? I didn't realize you could get these so cheap! That's fantastic! I have to keep my eye out for sales. 4th of July is coming up soon. BTW - check out the Skinnytaste website for some great air...

    Re: Soooooo tired! What can I do?

    Sounds like I need to get my labs checked. My surgeon seemed to imply that my body had enough vitamins in reserve to hold me over for the first month. It sure doesn't feel that way! Also, I don't...

    Great post Annie! Very insightful, although I must tell you - I would KILL to be 140lbs right now, lol!
  18. Re: Ways to deal with regain before it gets out of hand

    Sandra3 - Can you add in another drug to help reduce the dose of the PPI? How about adding in a Histamine-2 blocker like famotidine (Pepcid) or ranitidine (Zantac). There are also the "coating" drugs...

    Re: Good grief!!!

    It's unfortunate, but all medications have side effects, sometimes lots of side effects. They interact with each other, and they interact with supplements, vitamins, and foods we ingest. They...

    I went through the same thing. I can barely choke down the Premeir shakes now and the Isopure unflavored protein powder is sooooo nasty. Try the Genepro unflavored protein powder. It mixes, blends...
