I am going through nothing compared to you pet, I was prescribed Forceval prior to Op because of the dreaded vitamin k. Yes although a very sad time, as I dearly loved my Hubby’s Dad, I have had a weight loss boost, which I needed to be honest, was getting quite grumpy as I was seeing everyone else overtake me. I have now lost just over 10 1/2 stones since August last year, half of which I did myself to aid the Op and recovery, so I am well pleased. I always revert to milky drinks when my pouch shuts up shop, even little things like a row with Hubby has an effect, quite weird but we do what we have to do and what works for us. My pouch seems to have shrunk, which is great, as I used to manage a whole slice, of a small loaf, of seeded toast but now struggle to finish half a slice. Please take care and look after yourself and try and avoid dark green veg, grapefruit, pomegranates, cranberries and loads of other stuff that have vitamin k. When you have recovered and eating properly and back to normal, I am sure that your weight will go back to normal.
