  5. I had a gastric plication On April 8th 2011. I started regaining weight so I had a replication 8 weeks ago. Have not lost any weight since I have come home . has anybody out there gone through this?

  6. Personal trainers ( thousands of dollars down the drain), weight loss pills, weight watchers, GNC slim shake, Herbalife, Atkins diet, the list goes on
  7. I’m thinking of getting the gastric sleeve. I’ve tried everything to lose weight, but I guess my body likes being obese. I’m 5’6 and 210 pounds. How long is the preop diet? Please share your experiences, I would love to learn more
  8. I am scheduled in September 2018 for band over bypass revision/rescue surgery. I am looking for recent post-op patients to chat with. Are you having success? Any problems? How does it compare to your first weight loss surgery?
  9. Reflux after Many Years with a Band

    I loved my band,, but after years of high maintenance and fills, unfills and acid reflux. I found it time to dump the band and go with the sleeve.
  10. I had my band emptied after a year of severe reflux at night. I got immediate relief from the reflux. Now 6 months later I miss my band. Because I am gaining weight. Is it safe to get another fill now?

    So glad you made this thread. Congrats to you both on the "coming up very soon" dated!! I am scheduled for July 27, 2018. How are you guys doing on the pre-op diet? Are you excited? I am so freaking excited and ready to take back control of my life and stop hiding from the world as i have over the past few years.

  15. Current BMI 35 Canadian dr says I am not fat enough. I sure feel fat enough! Any Canadians (Albertans) have difficulty getting follow up care if required locally? What is the pre-op diet like? is there any regrets?? Having witnessed some people have surgery in 80 and 90’s with some major negative side effects, how is it done differently today? Any psycho therapists having experienced Sleeve and what is the outcome for you? How long until back to work comfortably? I would love to hear more stories of recovery long post surgery. Thank you!

    I'm interested as well
  20. Hey all! I thought I’d make a threade for those of us who are having surgery in July of 2018! I personally am scheduled for July 10th. Anyone else?
  21. Scheduled my surgery for July 6th! Nervous and excited at the same time. Worried about the pre-op diet since I’m whey protein intolerant. Do t know how this will interfere with the success of my pre and post op results. Any input is greatly appreciated!

    The TSA only goes after stuff that will bring a plane down and prohibited items, example, guns, knives, bombs, liquids over 3.4oz, gels and aerosols in your carry on. Protein powder isn't one of those and it isn't a prohibited item. They might check it, but it will end up ok to go. If you are checking a bag, pretty much anything can go in checked. The TSA has examples on their website if you need to be assured.

    So I put my protein powder in a gallon zip bag, then double bagged into another gallon zip bag and labeled it "Protein Powder." No issues with TSA.
