    sleeve day

  2. NewMe2Bee

    Pain when sipping......

    Yes i am 6 days out and I have experience the stomach pain more with cold liquids though. When I sip warm liquids not so much. It's getting better as the days go by. I just thi nk its part of my healing process. I mention it to my doctor before discharge and he said that it was common with some of his patients and especially when trying to drink cold beverages. He said stick to warm for now until I can handle the cold beverages better.

    I don't feel that different...

    I don't feel different physically but I know that things are different because I cant drink a tall glass of COLD water. I know that things are different because the only things in my diet in the last 6 days are liquids. I know that things are different because warm liquids are the only thing that doesnt call my stomach to cramp up. I know that all this is going to take time to get used to but as of today I have all my energy and feel like my normal self minus all of the above changes.....

  6. Hey Just wanting to send prayers and well wishes to all the sleevers being sleeved before 2010 says goodbye. My sleeve date is Thursday Dec 30th and I will drive down on Wednesday the 29th for my preop clearance. I can't say Im nervous I really don't know what this feeling is. I know that I am truly excitied about the days moving swiftly this week. This forum has been an excellent resource for all the questions and concerns that everyone has about this surgery and the ups and downs of getting through. I appreciate everyone that has been open and honest about their weight loss journey. I thank you all.. For all those joining the losing bench don't be a stranger, our stories will also help and motivate others to keep going even when the stalls come, even when the bed feels better then going to the gym.... Let's say goodbye to the pounds as we say goodbye to 2010. HAPPY NEW YEAR

  10. It's now 7 days before surgery date (Dec 30th) and I am really starting to think about this life change that I am about to make. I went to my work Christmas party last night and all I kept thinking was this time next year, I won't feel this way. I had on a beautiful sleeveless dress with my back out but no one but me knew the dress looked that way because I had on a cover up to cover these fat arms I"m so ashamed of. I took pictures with my bff and although it was a nice all I could see was my fat arms. I can't wait until these fat arms and other fat areas aren't a hinderer to my dress code. I want to wear my sleeveless dresses and everyone to know its sleeveless and I feel comfortable with my sleeveless dresses. Next summer and the next Christmas party everyone will see the beauty that is hidden under the fat coverage. I am getting pretty excited about my sleeve date. I am having mixed feelings as I'm sure everyone does at this stage of the process. But I'm not turning back only moving forward. I am starting to prepare my home for my return from the hospital with the foods and drinks that maybe needed. I'm cleaning and spending time with my girls. I still haven't figure out how to tell them about this surgery , I have explained to them that I will be away for a few days and I will be removing my gallbladder. I told my oldest whom is 12 briefly about the surgery but still haven't went into details. I really think they will be to worried about me if I told them I am going in to get my stomach removed . Has anyone had to tell their your children about this transition in their life and if so how did you do it? Keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I move forward through my journey and I will keep everyone updated with my progress....

    Any December Sleevers?

    yes, I have created a to do list?. what to take to the hospital list?. grocery list? I still have 16 more days but it still seems like forever. Ive gained some weight since my sept weigh in at the Pacific and Im concerned. They sent my paperwork and it said if you gain weight your surgery will be cancelled.. Im freaking right now , need to start my liquid diet asap to get these 8lbs off... December 30 here I come...

    Any December Sleevers?

    It's funny how all these doctors want different things. Although Pacific doctors don't require liquid diet I am starting on a 2 week liquid as well. My date is Dec 30 at 12 to be exact. But as a nurse I know the importance of a clean system before surgery and i want to be clean and clear.. Good luck with your liquids and your sleeve date. I will be coming as your going... In my prayers
  13. Yeah tiffnie, we all wanted to stay at our Kaiser but they werent even taking our names at that time. so we had to outsource to san diego. My family is still trying to figure out why Kaiser took off so much more then they could chew. But they did and we just have roll with it. Blessing to you and everyone for their new start in life.
  14. So Happy You got your date BlaqBeary ....
