    Re: Next question,.. How about this BAD breath?

    Ketosis is probably the culprit. I thought it would never go away, but it did! Just keep pushing the liquids and try adding flavorings.

    Re: All done and home day 2 post surgery

    You will be amazed how much younger you will feel. My stamina and energy is better than I ever could have dreamed of. I am definitely 20 years younger than one year ago.

    Re: cruise at week 4?

    I couldn't have handled it either. My preference would be to reschedule but you'll have to make that decision.

    Frothing machine

    I have always been a coffee snob. I like a good roast and drink it black. On occasion I would get a latte from a coffee shop. Last week I discovered that I could tolerate lattes. Up to this point I...

    I just don't understand some of these insurance companies. I have decreased back, leg, foot, and hip pain. My depression is clinical and will never go away completely, but has improved greatly. My...

    Re: Is this a NSV?

    Definitely is. Both of my daughters are phlebotomist. They said it is sometimes difficult to find veins on obese patients.

    I think at about 8 months I was able to tolerate most foods. In the beginning smelling certain food turned my stomach and I knew to not try eating them. Eggs were definitely one of those foods. At...

    I had to use the lovenox injections for several weeks. I had the compression cuffs on my legs that squeeze my legs periodically. It is also important to walk as much as you can tolerate. Also do not...

    Re: Where did she go?

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to frighten you. I wonder when people suddenly disappear, not that I post all the time. Maybe people turn into lurkers once they are doing well on their own.

    Re: 5 pounds is better than no pounds

    Keep in touch. Don't stress about 5 pounds. You will have stalls down the road. It happens to all of us. The pre-op can be a tough one. I can't remember back that far and it will soon be in the past...

    Where did she go?

    I haven't seen any posts from username Munegirl. I thought she was having challenges post op and not moving along as she had hoped. I might be totally off base here, but she used to post daily.
