Well, I had the surgery 2 weeks ago today. I've lost 12 pounds and I feel totally fine. That's the problem. I can eat anything without throwing up or feeling sick. I think the pouch is too big. I was told that I can't take my Metformin in pill form, but I am because I can't stand the taste of it crused up - even in apple sauce. I was back at work in a week and I have no pain. I've been trying to stick to only soft foods, but I'm hungry. I can't drink the protein drink cause I gag. And I started taking vitamins in pill form today because I gagged on the chewable. I feel like I went through this procedure for nothing. Last night for dinner I had 4 scrambled egg whites. I thought I'm supposed to be full after a couple bites. Is there anyway to have the surgery redone and have the pouch made smaller? I'm ready to just give up.
