Got a quick question: I want to make an American Medifast menu for guests. What should I cook? Hoping for any answer. Second question.. I am still "ALIVE" guys..I'm sorry I have not been online. I can barely sit in this computer chair, as I try tp type this!.

Let me 1st clarify..I had 2 MAJOR Operstions! The Gastric Bypass and a Hernia Repair!! I have an extreme amount of soreness and pain..the dr's at the hospital said it's from the hernia!! The GBS doesn't seem to be hurting at all-BUT, the hernia was VERY, VERY BIG..and I swear to God it's killing me the pain from it that is..

My poor husband is having to endure so much added on work and stress with the FT care of me, plus the house, our daughter and the animals...He is having to help me out of bed, help me get dress from waist down, crush my meds (which make me SICK and my stomach hurts!!), give me my protein drink, etc. I am so thankful to have him! Right now, I don't know what I would do if he wasn't there or wasn't as supportive as he is being for me!!.

I'm gonna put my mailing address on here: Wanda Durst PO Box 1791 Winterville, NC 28590-1791 I couldn't definitely use some encouragement..As I feel so bad, that husbandhas so much to do. I cannot even wipe my ASS (pardon my language) cause of how sore I am and I can't bend over- I'm probably NOT going to be online much..I am sorry guys! It just hurts too much to sit here for any long length of time. I don't regret the GBS but the hernia, I am really wishing that I had NEVER had it done!!.

Just wanted You all to know how I am and that I am still sort of here. Sorry this is so LONG!! Just wanted explain whats been going on..

It will get better, dear. Just take it one day at a time. I felt the same way about wishing I didn't have it done, but now I'm so glad I did. It's just that you need time to heal. Hang in there, and praise God for your hubby. You're both in my prayers...

Hi. So sorry to hear about how much pain you are in. I had a hernia repaired with my GBS on the same day four weeks ago too! I also felt like I didn't have much pain from the GBS sites, but a TON from the hernia repair site. It's hard, but it helps to take your pain meds on time and before the pain actually starts. That will get you up and doing things faster. I know I was real bad for two days, ok for the third day, and good on the 4th! I still received help around the house for three weeks.

Good luck to you! Brighter days to come!..

My husband is very good also, I did not have a hernia operation but did have a.


8 weeks before GBS and he has been supportive and very helpful with everything..

I did have time to recute after the first.


But I am done with hospitals for a while ;).

Hang in there, every day is a little bit better..

Just hang in there, and it will all be over soon and youll be looking back on it and just thanking god it's over with..

Much love to you and your hubby!..
