    Feeling really good. Have really been struggling with hair loss, ALOT of hair loss. I had hoped id be one of the lucky few that wouldnt experience it but its hitting hard. If it continues at this pace in a few months ill have a few strands left.
    Any advice is appreciated.

    Hey there, i did opti for 4 weeks. My best advice that already been mentioned is water. If you feel hunger pains drink water, it does help. Also lots of distractions and research, reading ect.

    Thanks backontrack
    I did treat myself, i bought some jeans, grabbed the 18 but they were huge, so i got a 16 and now they keep falling down  too. My brain cant get around the fact that i may need a 14.
    I also had hogs breath for dinner, well i managed  barley 1/4 of a steak and thats it! But it was delicious.

  15. jemabell added a post in a topic: Diarrhoea and cramping 2 weeks post op ?   

    Hi MissAsh
    I also struggled  with this, and still occasionally do 17 weeks post op. My surgeon and dietition put it down to dumping. Which is uncommon for sleevers and more comon in bypass. But it seems to be what my body is doing. Ive cut out dairy and most sugar and that seems to have helped but it still does happen unfortunately
    Hoping yours passes soon
