I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
Congrats Peggy on the beginning of a new life. It has been 7 days since I had my.
I am doing fine.I still wear my binder it helps gives me support when I am moible.I still have a lot of gas on my stomach but I have been taking.
The dr. says I can drive today in which I may do so just to get out the house. I have taken 2 showers since the.
Which was a real task for me. I wish you the best of luck and keep us posted.~Bea~..
Thats amazing, I sure.
I am in the same condition you are in when I come out. Im sure it is hard but you seem to have it under control. Congrats... I cant wait,..
Sounds like you are doing great. Make sure when you have that juice you water it down ALOT so you don't dump...
Congrats! I'm glad to hear that your.
Went well. I know you've been excited about it and glad you're on your way to becoming a loser!..
Way to go.. glad your are doing good... was wandering about you. Get some rest and write us when you get home and situated. I am happy for you......
Glad to hear you're doing well loser, LOL!.
That you make it home soon. Take care!.
Ps. Hey watch the apple juice! They gave it to me in the hospital too and I dumped badly on it. Too much sugar, like over 20g per serving. It made me turn bright red, hot, horrible dry heaves and a really bad headache. I was so nauseaus that first week and no one could figure out why. It was the apple juice...
You are feeling better every day! I could not have anything to drink til the second day. And even then it was only water and Boost (yuck). No broth, no juice..but then again I probably would not have wanted either of them cause just the smell of Medifast food make me nauseated. No binder either, just a lil pillow to hold when I had to cough or move around. Sounds like you are doing pretty good. Hang in there and look forward to you coming home.
How long do you have to be in for?..
Hi Peggy, Im glad to hear all went well for you. Im so glad! Now your off to a New You.... YAY!!! Congrats!! Take extra good care of yourself, this first week will be a lil rough being that this is a all new lifestyle but just keep moving and get plenty of fluids :-).
Peggy so glad to hear from you! are you coming home today?.
Well you are officially on the other side, Congratulations!.
We're all here for you.
Modern technology, ain't it grand?! 2 days out and I'm doing really well. My only one big problem I had was "contractions" starting Monday afternoon and.
Till yesterday. Wowwie! It's been almost 30 years since I've had contractions like that.. whew and I'd be very content to never have them again!.
I'll explain more in detail after I'm home. One of the nurses I had said she went through the same thing when she had her WLS and she'd not wish it on her worse enemy. I just had my first meal that wasn't just ice chips, num, num! Honestly though, I'm not hungry. I was okay with ice chips... the 'crunching' helps with 'oral' fixation of our eating. I ate a a few little pieces of jello, saved my apple juice to drink on through the day and also saved my diluted chicken broth.
Up and down the halls all hours of the day and night..
One more thing to jot down and ask about (for those who have not been through the.
Yet... Abdominal Binder (reminds me of a girdle of sorts) It helps keep your tummy pulled tight which will help aid when we are moving, or trying to cough. I'm still not real good at that, even with my spiro-meter or whatever it's called.. the thingey which you breath into trying to 'raise' to the highest number you can. My surgeon has me doing it 10 times every hour..
Well. it's time to wonder the halls some more. I wanted to stop in and say "hi" and let you know, things are good..
Yay Peggy!!! Sounds like you're doing great!!! Yes, make sure they water down that apple juice!!! :) Welcome to the losers bench!!! :).
Good for you! Tecnology is the best!.
That all goes well for you,.
I say go ahead a wear the slippers out.
! LOL Glad that your feeling so well keep us posted!..
You sound great, considering what you 've been through. Sorry for the complications of the "contractions".
All of that is history soon, and you continue to heal quickly and well. I'm proud of you being up and.
A lot...so good for you and helps with all that gas as you know. Also, and they don't talk about it much, but you don't want to develop pneumonia, and sometimes those stuck in bed have THAT worry..
They offered me regular popsicles, and juice in the hospital and I thought that was odd, considering. My apple juice WAS diluted, but I opted not to drink it. Not a fan really anyhow..
I also had a binder and the spirometer. I liked the binder too, but didn't love the spirometer. Took me weeks to be able to do it as I normally would. So you are not alone there. Keep at it , as you are able..
Man are you a trooper. I am glad things went well. Welcome to the losers club for life..
I'm so Happy that your taking it so well. you seem to be flying thru. and.
Is really good. I'm 8 days out today and feeling a lil better every day. Welcome to the losers bench...
Glad things are going well. Thanks for the update on your progress. So glad to have you next to us on the losers bench..
You get home real soon...
Great job Peggy! Binder is a good thing....wore mine about 2 weeks...or so. Keep up the.
! Proud of you!.
Remember...nothing tastes better than thin feels!.
Congratulations! So glad that your.
Went well. Take care of yourself and can't wait to hear how you are doing. Walk, walk, walk!!!..
Congrats! You've made it through the.
Everything else is gravy, ok maybe not gravy, more like protien shakes...
I am so glad you are doing well, and you are up and.
Which is good. Congratulations and welcome to the loser's bench...
Though we've never met, I wanted to congratulate you on your decision and progress that you're making! I had a binder and HATED the thing. I wish it would have helped me more. I ended up calling my surgeon soon after I got home asking if I could get rid of it cuz it hurt more then it help. LOL. I'm sure many use them with great success though! It didn't help that I had an open incision and a whole lotta stomach girth to deal with at the time. I tried putting my binder on the other day actually (LOL) when I found it in my closet and had to laugh at how "nice" it fits now.
Anyhow, it's a great journey. Not always easy, but great none the less! Congrats on getting to the other side and I look forward to hearing more of your journey! Keep up the great work!..
You still sound like the same upbeat peggy! Things are going good it sounds. I'm so glad..hurry back...
Glad to hear that things are going so well. You have a wonderfully positive attitude and I think that helps..
Congratulations, Peggy! Sounds like you're doing GREAT and you have a really.
Keep up the good work!..
(((((Peggy))))) So glad to see you so soon. I have though of you often my dear. When I couldnt have water yet and they gave me ice chips with the mouth swab in it, I would swab and then chew all the ice and spit it out. It was a blessing. Yeah the breathing thinga-mah-jiggy was hard at first too, but I know you will kick it's bootie..
So glad to see you take care o' you..
