I am 1 1/2 year out. I need to have some vericose veins in my legs taken care of. The surgeon wants me to take advil for several weeks after the surgery to decrease inflamation. I can not get any answers from the docs I have seen. The gastric bypass surgeon does not have anything to do with you after 1 year from surgery. Then my primary care physician will not give me information. And the vascular doc says he can give me nexium to help aid the stomach. Help! I know that ulcers could form and I do NOT want to deal with that. I think people end up formulating their own opinions since they can not get answers. Any thoughts would be great!

I'm on my pre-op diet, day 4. I've been struggling not to eat. It's harder then I thought it would be. My family came for the weekend and there's food every where I turn. I'm so tempted. I'm just totally rethinking everything. Can I live on such a small amount of food after surgery? I'm really starting to wonder. It's all becoming so real now. And I'm freaking out. Is there anyone who can help me...
Hi. I have a question. I'm obese and just recently my doctor sent a referrel to a bariatric facility. I am awaiting the initial apointment. I fit all the requirements but one thing nto on the sheet is mention of a Vp shunt, which I have and have had since age 14.. I have no problems with it. Not even sure it works anymore as it's supposed to only work for 10 years or so. Anyways, I am now 38 ....

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
