  1. I take it for another reason, but only take 5 mg/night (cut a 10mg one in half). It really does help with sleep and I haven't needed to increase the dosage because it was no longer effective. I've been taking it about a year. I haven't seen any weight increase because of it.
  2. I had the surgery about 4 years ago. It does work, but recovery for the first 10 days or so is very painful. Bowel movements were agonizing. I really had to take fiber, take Miralax, and Magnesium Calm to keep everything "loose". One tip, if you do this, is get a plastic ketchup bottle and fill with water. Squirt the water to help clean yourself after a BM because wiping is very painful. This was the best tip I got regarding recovery. Also, recently I am having some pain again, so not sure if it's a long term solution. I remember the surgeon telling me the surgery should last about 10 years. She didn't tell me this until after the surgery. Would I do it again? Probably, if it became really painful on a daily basis, but it will probably take a lot of pain to get me there. You may not want to hear this, but I thought recovery was worse than recovery from my C-section.
  3. My sister bought one of these for my parents who are in their 90's and it works great. They really enjoy it.
  4. I have this, and use it a lot. I like it, but you have to slam it down pretty hard to chop vegetables like carrots.
  5. Pediatrician's office did it for $50, including the earrings. No problems.
  6. No divorces in any generation of my family. My parents have been married 66 years and counting.
  7. If you're still in the area where your wedding ring was purchased, you might check with them to see if they would resize it for free. I remember that the jewelry store where we got my rings included a lifetime free service to resize the rings.
