That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
Liz is right... The dark urine can be easily explained by either post-op blood, coloration in whatever protien you're drinking, or dehydration... But for all your symptoms, if they mount, don't wait to get help. Go now! Best wishes...
Call your dr or go to er! Don't mess around!..
The "What have I done to myself?" feeling will go away in about a month. In the mean time drink water too! That will change the urine color..
Is your leg black & blue or just sore?..
Joy you'll be just fine and the only thing you've done is probably save your life. Overstated? I doubt it! I was a fat slob one year ago and.
Now in the best shapeof my life..
FYI big girl,.
You want to see bruising check out my fat photos post.
Maybe you've never seen this.
Performed on the Internet. Because if you had you'd know why you're so sore and bruised. We are massive human beings and they treat you like a.
Big fat raggedy Ann doll when they sliced you big body to pieces.
Everyone on here says it was the best decision that they every made, but a lot of people don't seem to say that the first month. lol.
The leg thing should be checked out. I think urgent care and also a call to your surgeon's office.This is a very special.
And urgent care may not know everything they need to..
I do know that blood clots in the legs can be very dangerous..
**Call your surgeon's office now..
Let us know how it goes... and we ALL have what the hell did I do moments in the first weeks. Fast forward a few months and most of us would do it again in a nanosecond ;)..
I would call your doctor and make an appointment if you are concerned. The pain in your leg could be clotting but maybe not. Call the doc!..
My doc told me it was the vitm and post op blood that part I think you are fine in, but the leg thing I agree with every one call your doc, even if he tells you it's nothing at least you will have a peace of mind. BEST OF LUCK and I am PRAYING for YOU!!!!!!..
I just had.
On 11,9,10....... My urine is dark.... my dr told me to drink 1 ounce of protein every hour,,,,, which I have but I also have been sipping liquids in between, or having jello, broth,,,, can anyone tell me what they did after they got home?.
Also,,, my left leg feels sore not real bad kind of like a black and blue mark if you touch certain parts,,, I'm owrried about clotting,.... the leg is not swollen or hot... please help me I'm scared and now I'm thinking what have I done to myself//.
I talked to dr and tehre is no clot but he did put me on baby.
2xs a day.. my urine is getting lighter so I have stepped up the drinking and all.. my leg is not red, swollen or hot at all in the calf..( did I spell that right?)... I may have bumped it in the hospital... thank you all for your concern..... I just need to get thru this,,, great support here !!! xoxox..
After you are under in.
, they stand you up and work. There are straps or other restraints holding your legs so you can stay up. That is a lot of pressure, which may have produced this.....
I had the EXACT same thing. I kept telling my hubby it felt like someone clobbered my legs to death with a metal bat. Omg, they hurt horribly. I too was scared outa my mind about clots. Doc said it was normal, and I needed to calm down lol. Im a month out today and I feel great..
My pee was also SUPER dark for about a week and a hlaf after I got home. Agian, I knew I was dehydrated and just made sure to get in all my water. It slowly turned back to normal as well. Just make sure you're getting your water and you should be fine..
Tell your Doc about everything just so they know whats going on. But everything sounds normal to me, compared to my first few weeks...
Like almost every poster before me CALL YOUR DR IMMEDIATELY about your leg. And get that ugly "what have I done to myself" question out of your mind..
Like a poster wrote - you have made a LIFE SAVING decision by having the.
There might be bumps in the road right now and there might be some "hidden" things which your body has been hiding for a very long that are now surfacing in which case can be treated. If not for the.
- those "hidden" things could have put you 6ft under. Believe me my dr had told me I had less than a month to live if I had not had the.
2yrs out and my health has improved greatly..
But definitely contact your dr...
