I am looking to jumpstart my healthy life. I am 50. I started life as a thin young girl. After using fertility drugs in my 20s began to have weight problems. I recently lost over 30 lbs a year ago, but then got hit with some serious life problems which knocked me off my path to a healthier me. I am now the heaviest I have ever been weighing in at 254lbs at 5'9. I didn't want anything permanent or to be cut up with major surgery. I am praying that Obrera is the answer.
Let the Prep Begin!
Started my prep today. Dr. Has me taking 2 omeprazoles a day for 14 days prior to procedure. I am getting anxious a little.
It has Begun
16 Dec 2016
Day of treatment
Procedure was this morning. I am okay. No nausea yet, nor pain.
Woke up feeling drained but no nausea or pain. Had my spark. Just resting today. Last night was okay, but had a little bit difficulty sleeping on right side.
Day 3 I have more energy. Still no nausea or severe pain. There has been a slight ache in the belly area, but nothing as bad as menstrual cramps. In fact no where near the discomfort caused from having a period. Although I feel like I could tolerate full liquids going to stick with the required diet of clear liquids. So far down 2 lbs on my scale.
Well I have made it through Day 4. Added protein shake and cream soups to diet. No nausea, no cramp. However, I am burping like crazy. So far, so good.
Christmas Day 2016
I have lost 9 lbs. still no ill effects. Had a great time with family.
50 Year Old Getting Healthy
I decided to do this procedure because it was time to jumpstart my weight loss and get healthy. I am 10 days out from procedure and 9 lbs down. No complications, no side effects. I feel great. My doctor hooked me up with great pre procedure info and meds, which I haven't even needed. If you follow the guidelines you should be fine.
