    Sleeved on March 11th

    I was sleeved on the 12th and for the most part have been doing well... I feel pain under my belly button. Not a constant pain but little stabs of pain here and there... Anyone else feel this?

    Marie... It's a huge step there is no doubt. Everyone is scared at some point during this journey. Only you and your doctor knows what's best for your health. It's a big change! I'm just 6 days out and the changes so far in my lifestyle are many. Good luck on your journey!

    You're doing so awesome! Still sore but getting better. I'm so proud of you and your progress! I'm so glad to have u as an inspiration by following your journey! Tell me about the phase your in now with eating...
  6. I'm 5 days post op and still feeling a bit sore but have cut back on pain meds so maybe I'm just noticing it more because of that. Getting in enough fluids is hard.

    Sore! I've been having a lot of bloating as well. I'm walking a lot to assist with this as I'm sure it's just gas. Staying positive! How's u?

    Pre op diet

    HeatherV...I had my surgery wed and it shows I've gained... I know this is probably from fluids from IV's, meds and swelling. Maybe that's what happened to u instead of a stall?
  10. So my surgery was Wednesday, and the hospital I had it in is over 2 hours away. We get home yesterday and tonight my husband makes a huge meal of grilled steaks, baked potatoes with all the fixings.. (My very favorite meal). Am I wrong for feeling that this is completely insensitive on his part? I understand people have to eat but this has upset me terribly.

    anyone with a march date?

    Did u have your doctor call them? I'm confused.. Did u not get approved BEFORE they have u a surgery date? My doctor doesn't go any further until approved.
