    Just sleeved 6 days ago

    I was getting worried that it meant I wouldn't have much restriction;(

    And it seems like I can drink more than 12 ounces. Isn't my stomach smaller than that???

    Finally sleeved;)

    I had the lapband for two years and just had it removed and the sleeve done 6 days ago. The lapband worked for me for 7 months until I got acid reflux and it had to be emptied and we could never get it full without reflux again. Then a few months ago it slipped so I decided to revise to the sleeve. So far I have no pain and no hunger;) hoping for a great journey with the sleeve;)

  6. Just what Veronica said..... It is common for hair loss with surgery and weight loss. It lasts two to three months and then it is done and grows back;)

    New Here! Wondering If I Made A Mistake

    You will look back in a few months and love your decision and wish you'd have done it sooner;). It won't always be smooth sailing, but it will get better and be so worth it;)
  9. Very normal right after surgery. Give it some time and you will start to see te scale moving again;)

    Tight in the morning

    I am tight in the mornings so I stick to protein shakes or mushiness and get very full quickly. It is awesome and a great thing!

    IM so scared

    I started having some reflux and they took a little fluid out and it went away. My doc said the gallbladder can cause symptoms like this too.
