Loosing weight

I have been trying to loose the weight that i gained back after i got home from the hospital in 2011. I finally threw my salt away and working on getting away from the salt products and start to eat better. i would like to do more salad's but i don't want my INR messed up we finally got it therapeutic. I need to loose at least 100lbs so I can get a transplant. Thanks for any help.

I have had a few patients now gain great success with gastric bypass- sleeve, roux en y and band procedures. There are few Gastric "Centers of Excellence" around the country who are also LVAD centers (Pitt, ST. Vincents) and you may consider this.

My problem is restricting my liquid intake. I can gain 4lbs in a day from drinking liquids. I don't drink soda or anything with sodium buy the liquid gets me every time. I have lost a lot of weight from being in the hospital for 3 months after getting LVAD.Since I was released august 28th, I've gaine 12 pounds back. Gaining weight back is not an option for me. I don't do salt or salt products, all of my food is fresh and I prepare but I still must be doing something wrong. Getting the LVAD was not the biggest obstacle... eating clean and losing weight with a wire in coming out of your stomach is such a huge struggle. If any one have suggestions to work out activities we can do to reduce stomach safely, please post.
