    How much does the sleeve really stretch??

    Hey April Sleever, My surgery was Monday 16th and I am so greatful. Let me start by saying yes there is a little nervous reation the closer you get to the date but it is all good. After surgery I have not taken any pain meds at all except what was given prior to coming out of surgery. No pain what so ever. My starting weight was 284 in 2 weeks of my pre op diet I lost 20 lbs weighting 264 and now 3 days since surgery I have lost an additional 3 lbs. I know everyone is different but if you have come this far you can do it. I woke up monday morning made it to Dr. curry's office in Cinci Ohio was sleep and woke up on my thin journey. Trying to drink 1 to 2 ounces every 20 minutes is hard to do which is a first ever for me when it comes to food. Much success to all my April Sleever. I will keep you posted!
  2. Good Morning all, I am all most there. Yes this pre op diet has been crazy. I have been on it for 2 weeks Metabolic foods and even though it is food (not good, not totally bad but not good). Surgery is Monday at 8:30 am. I am getting excited the closer I get to the morning of.
  3. Wow, April 17th is my birthday and I am so excited that I am giving this to myself for my birthday. Dr.Curry is doing my surgery and I am on 2 weeks Metabolic foods I can tell I have lost at least 15 pounds. I am happy for all of us. I have heard so much about feeling more confident and I am waiting to embrace it all. Many blessing to all of the April Sleevers and watch world a new breed of people are being released.
  4. Congrats Amy!!! My surgery is 4/16 Monday and I am excited. I never thought this could happen for me. I have been on my pre op diet for too weeks and I have started losing because it is an high protein diet. Truthfully, I am starving. LOL But can't wait to have my surgery.
