    Re: liquid diet blues for 2 weeks

    You guys who do the liquid diet are the real WLS pre-op heroes. I would have never been able to handle it. Thankfully my doctor didn't require it for more than one day for me. I'd like to say "You...

    Re: Men!!!

    23 inches??? I haven't measured my waist (or anything else), but I have a pair of size 24 jeans that cut me in half. I ended up giving them to Meg a couple of days ago, and they were super snug on...

    Re: Men!!!

    It isn't fair! The guy who owns one of our local pizza places eats pizza every day for lunch with no gain. I have to limit myself to once a week, and there is always a gain. *sigh*

    Re: favorite meal replacement

    A lot of people have a complete change in taste after surgery. They tell you not to stock up on protein shakes prior to surgery as you may not like that particular one afterwards. All I can suggest...

    Re: smoking an the sleeve?

    Actually, smokers seem to be less affected by Coronavirus. Crazy, right? But it's true. I was a smoker when I had surgery. My doctor never tested me, and I don't remember if I told him or not. I...

    Re: Sleeve conversion

    Yep, the sleeve can be a beast for reflux/gerd. I never had it before, but since getting sleeved 5.5 years ago, it's been awful.
  10. Re: Any plastic surgeon in Mexico - Abdominoplasty

    Re: Ibuprofen/Anti-inflammatories

    Yep, the rule is no NSAIDS after surgery... ever again. However, I do take them, but definitely not 800 mg or more a day. I'm more of a one or two packs of Goody's a day person. Hopefully your...

    It will get better, but it may take a few months. I was 10 months post op the last time I was hospitalized with dehydration. Do not take it lightly. Go in for IV hydration as many times as it takes...

    This is my local women's and children's hospital, and I am appalled. There is absolutely no way in hell a 10 year old CHILD should be allowed to have WLS. No fucking way!

    My regret comes into play when I want to be a gluttonous pig and eat way more than my stomach can accommodate... which is pretty much always. I waste a LOT of food.

    Do these things really happen? Yep. Every single one of those things you listed is something I have and still struggle with. Am I still glad I had the surgery? Most of the time. I like being thin.
