    The pain was not bad for me at all, I didn't even take pain meds. I took gas x to prevent gas pains and walked as soon as I was allowed. Walk, walk, walk.....that's the trick. Good Luck!
  4. some people have sleep apnea without being overweight. I have a brother-in-law who is thin with severe sleep apnea.
  5. My surgery was on a Thursday, I was off the following week but could have gone back the Monday after. I felt fine.

  7. I usually buy jeans or a shirt that are to small so I can work on eventually fitting into them. Well, today I bought a pair of capris in hopes that they will fit by summer. I bought a size 8. I got home and tried them on to see how small they were and they FIT comfortably too! I haven't been that size since middle school.....actually I think I skipped size 8 in my sleep in 7th grade lol. love my sleeve!

  14. You look great, keep up the good work. I was sleeved 10/11/12. I'm down 46lbs and have been stalled for 3 weeks. I'm 19lbs from goal and feel like I'm never going to get there! But I'm not giving up!
  15. Congrats, keep up the good work!
  16. It definitely gets better. I'm 10 weeks out and I'm down 43 lbs. I feel great. It does take time to figure out a new way of eating but it's so worth it!

    Psoriasis or Eczema

    My psoriasis is on my scalp. It hasn't gotten any better.

  19. Only regret is not doing it sooner!
  20. My bloating lasted at least 3 weeks.
  21. I had my sleeve on 10/11/12. I felt bloated every time I had anything. I had no appetite at all, eating was actually a chore that I almost cried every time I had to eat. It does get better and this week I actually felt hunger for the first time since surgery. I can't eat much, but at least I didn't have to force it. I'm down 35 pounds today. I'm very glad I had the sleeve.
  22. I was sleeved 10/11/12. I saw the Dr. today. I've lost 34 lbs. He was very happy with that. He said I will lose slower than some people because I have less to lose. I was 205 the day of surgery, today I'm 171 lbs.
