Hello to all

I was desperately looking for some change when it came to my weight gain struggle. I have been overweight my whole life. The most I've ever weighed has been 270lbs and I am 5'7''1/2. I've done all types of diets from quick weight loss to cabbage soup. Two years ago I lost about 50lbs with traditional diet and exercise. I really lived a strict lifestyle with about 4 days of workouts and food measurements. And surprise..surprise gained it all back in a year. I was so discouraged. So I looked into to the gastric balloon. This is my second week. Its been challenging. Im struggling the most now with uncontrolled reflux and constipation.

My journey so far
Pre-op: preop weight 241lbs. 3 day liquid diet before. I lost about 5lbs doing this
Week 1: Nausea was pretty bad. Phenergen suppositories helped the most but made me sleepy. I went back to work in 1 week. It was ok. My portions have dramatically dropped and cravings for junk food almost doesnt exist. Week 1 weight loss 13lbs

Im currently now struggling reflux, but I will keep you updated
