  1. Hi, I also live in Ulster county. Had my sleeve done at ORMC July 2,2012. I am just over a year out. I have lost 80 lbs and would like to lose another 25 or so.

    Leg Cramps - Is It Common?

    I experienced the same right after surgery. I was told to drink more water. You can also possibly be lacking potassium.

    Starting Out

    Congratulations on making the decision to change your life! I made the decision to get the sleeve in March and my unofficial surgery date is July 2nd. I have days where I question my decision but then I bring myself back to reality and I know that I need to do this for myself and my family. I guess I am alittle afraid of the unknown hence the reason why I stalk this forum! It really helps reading what other's are going through. Good luck with your journey!!

    Nsv That Made Me Smile Ear To Ear

    That's a wonderful NSV!!!
  18. I am not banded yet either, I am still doing the pre op testing. Some days I have all the confindence in the world to go forward with the surgery and then my thoughts turn crazy with the" what if's".....What I DO know is that I can't keep living this way yo yo dieting. I know I need to do this for my health and I am grateful that I have the opportunity. I just have to get over the worry hurdles and just do it!! This forum has been a wonderful place for me to come to daily to build my confidence and ease my fears. I hope you feel better about your decision too!

    Surgery In Approx An Hour

    Congrats! You'll do great!
  20. I will be finished with all of my pre surgery appointments on May 23. So here's my issue....I have three kids, ages 18, 12 and 5. My daughter will be graduating June 22 (party on June 16th) My 12 year old is in track, practice after school with meets being on the weekends. My 5 year old is in pre school from 9 to noon monday through friday with me being the one that does all the driving back and forth, dropping off and picking up. My question is should I wait until their out of school to have the surgery done or should I do it at the end of May? I am wondering if I will be ok by graduation. I don't want her day ruined because I'm not feeling well and have to struggle through the day. I have had 3 c-sections and my pain tolerance is pretty good. I had no complications other than nausea with them. I was up and about with all 3 and even left the hospital early with two of them. I wonder if the sleeve surgery is comparable to c-sections??? Decisions, decisions!! I hate not being able to foresee the future
  21. You look awesome! It's posts like yours that get me excited and feeling very ready for my journey! Thanks!

    Surgery Today!

    Congrats to the both of you!
  23. I went to the seminar this past week and while some of my surgeons patients talked to us about the procedure of the sleeve, they all mentioned that our surgeon double stapples the stomache when he closes up the new pouch as an extra precaution. My question is, is this customary? Do all surgeons do this or is this something extra? I am so worried about having post complications.
