    Maybe if we lose slowly we will have less loose skin issues.? Could be a plus side to the slow scale. Just a theory.

    I got my date for surgery today with Dr. Le. I picked Sept. 13th. He had an opening on the 27th of August but I decided I had to finish up some stuff at work.

    I met with Dr. Le today for my pre-op appt. I made it to my pre-surgery goal weight....even under by two pounds! I signed my waiver, did bloodwork and attended the pre-op surgery class. It's feeling really, real now!

    I got it once. Not pretty when you are bed ridden in ICU. The most painful stomach gurgling and cramping you could possibly imagine. Didn't get it during sleeve op and stay. I was worried because once you get it you are more likely to get it again.

    The only thing I did was lick the flavoring off of a few Tomato basil wheat thins about 2 weeks out. Then my dog ate the crackers and she didn't mind at all that I licked off the good part.

    skinnytata reacted to Patrick Curl in My First Full Week On The Sleeve...   
    My highest weight ever was 699...kinda decided then that i never wanted to be in the 700s...immediately went on a diet...spent a whole year going on and off diets..lost 60 pounds then gained 20...and repeated that for a year...going from 660 to 640 and back again.
    Thats when I decided I needed to take drastic measures... I needed to have something that would give me a better chance of success... after looking at the different options the sleeve became my first choice and really only choice. Because of my Bmi the sleeve is the only surgery the Dr would do...but frankly I don't feel comfortable with subjecting myself to malabsorption and I don't trust lapband..I think that's a farce because of all the revisions I see...
    So last Sunday was the day before surgery... for lunch I had a burrito bowl and 3 Cookies ..my last meal..I could have nothing to eat after 2 except clears and gross tasting magnesium citrate which I took at 6pm and took 3 hoursnto kick in and it was still going when I woke up at 4am the next morning...
    Everything that day was very surreal...and I do remember being a bit scared. I started at the scale -649...then they took me to a station where I put on the gown and got in the bed. We were running late I believe because they were having such a hard time getting my iv in...eventually the super nurse dude had to come and do it..ie the nurse anesthetist..he was much better and only took one stick...all in all it took like 5 sticks and a bit of fishing to get me hooked up and ready.
    The minute my iv was attached I was on my way...when they wheeled me into the OR I was shaking a bit from cold and nerves...I rolled up next to the operating table and wondered how in the hell were they going to lift me onto that thing..all of a sudden my bed was inflating like a raft and it kinda floated over to the operating table..they had to push and pull a bit but really only to guidenme to the right spot...
    Then I woke up in intensive care...and was sleeved. The rest of the week was spent learning how my new tummy worked...and what I could do..really I just rode it out. Then came home after 3 days in hospital.
    I have absolutely no appetite at all and eating is a huge chore...kinda wish I didn't really even need to do it but..I kinda do.
    I Thought I was pretty prepared for the sleeve via this forum...but nothing can prepare you for the way you feel afterwards....for the first time in my life I don't feel like food controls me... I still have head hunger..but really after a couple bites I'm full and don't want anymore. I really have no desire for food...it actually seems repulsive and unappealing...
    What's extremely appealing is that between 7/2/12 and 7/10/12 (today) I have gone from 649 to 623...that's about 3 pounds per day. I am definitely on my way and rocking this sleeve. Next year I will be half the man I am today!
    This is definitely the best decision of my life.

    September 21 will be 12 weeks. I'll put an alert on my iPhone-semi kidding. I would love to be 50lbs thinner by then! Thanks for putting the end goal ahead of these little hiccups for me. I swear my 3 year old taunted me with PB smooches this morning.

    I'm 12 weeks out and had my first Peanut Butter and toast. I'm also down 50 pounds. The 12 week wait was WAY WORTH the 50 pound loss! Hang in there. This phase feels like it will last forever, but in retrospect, I hardly remember it! :-D

    This day three of Clear Liquids before surgery and I am ready to eat my plastic water bottle. Has anyone ever heard of the MD taking some of the patients out to dinner the night before? I thought I read it somewhere. Maybe it was on Aceves website.
