    Did you gain any weight from when you had the sleeve?

    i'm pre-op, for the second time

    I too was sleeved but 9yrs ago. I have major Gerd to the point it makes me throw up. I just found out I have a small hiatal hernia. I went for a consult and the surgeon suggested revision to bypass. I lost 100 pounds after being sleeved but have gained about 70 which sucks. How much did you lose and regain? I hope to fix my Gerd but also lose at least 50. I heard it would be a slower processes since I’m still limited when eating.

    Considering revision

    I’m on the same boat Rachel. I had the sleeve in 2013. Dropped 100 pounds but have gained 65 back. I want to look into a revision. My job has open enrollment and there’s a plan that covers bariatric surgery.
  6. Hello everyone I'm currently 30 weeks out and have lost 75 pounds. I was wondering how much weight everyone who's about this far out has lost. What was your starting weight & goal weight. I need 25 more pounds to be at my goal weight

    Wow you've lost 119 in 6 1/2 months? I'm also 6 1/2 months out and have only lost 67 pounds I do admit I haven't gone much to the gym through out these 6 1/2 months.

    Funny I was told by the coordinator when I started this journey that I was 5'8...I've never been told that so I'm sure to saying 5'7...I'm 15 weeks out going on 16(4months) on Monday..I've only lost 51 pounds. I don't think I would hit 100 like you on my 5th month..I haven't really put in much work in the gym and I also drink alcohol twice a week. I'm sure that's a factor in my weight loss.

    preop alcohol

    I thought I had a drinking problem about a year ago but I've controlled my drinking. But I don't think I can ever stop. My doctor didn't tell me to

    preop alcohol

    I too haven't stopped drinking. I stopped a few days before surgery and started drinking again 12 days later and I'm perfectly fine. I have a busy social life...my doctor gave me the ok to drink when I went to remove my stitches 9 days later..but yes everyone's body is different
  12. Anyone bold enough to admit that they drink a lot? I asked my coordinator when I could drink and he said wait about 6 months. 9 days after surgery I went to remove my stitches and I asked my doctor when i could drink and he said when ever I want just to drink slowly. Well that was enough for me! I began drinking 12 days later and have not stopped ever since. I probably drink 3 times a week. I'm 3 months out and I've lost 45 pounds. Could it be that I haven't lost more because I drink so much? I honestly believe it is hard for me not to drink. My social life consist of drinks drinks drinks
