  1. Updating... Surgery was July 10th. Started this journey at 236 lbs. Surgery weight was 210 lbs, 5 months post op weighing in at 161.6 lbs. That's a 75 lb weight loss total. 65 lbs since surgery. My stomach doesn't match the rest of my body, all the remaining weight I need to lose is in my gut I'm 5'3", with a large hanging belly.

    OK ! Update..... I was sleeved July the 10th, and came home morning of the 11th. After taking a nap got up and walked on the treadmill for a mile . Focusing on removing the gas in my shoulder, and when I lay down the gas in my chest. At the hospital I was able to tolerate ice chips, Popsicles . The next morning the gave me premiere vanilla shake and sipped on about 3oz. Before it got warm. No nausea... Home started right away with power aide zero with half scoop of injury unflavored. Sipped in 10oz sippy cup. Tried sf jello tasted plain, blended hu p a pure protein frosty chocolate milk shake made with unsweetened light vanilla almond milk. Awesome finished it by the end of the day. Kept it frozen till needed more. That night I got a coffee cup/ candle warmer , made up some broccoli cheese soup with scoop of injury and warmed it hip and kept half on the warmer next to me while watching movies and sipped on it over 1 1/2 hours. I'm tolerating things well I guess, my tastes buds seem the same I guess . This a learning process and and any suggestions would be appreciated.
  6. Well its July the 12th in post-op. Still sore in the sternum area. Gas is trying to leave the body.. Walked on the treadmill yesterday about 3 hours after I got discharged.

    Ok I have a weird?... Lol I am on 4th day of pre-op diet, and I gained 3lbs and having trouble with my bm's.. Got desperate and took softener/stimulant and bam relief & 3lbs gone.. Will I need to take miralax powder every day? I know it might come in handy post-op. Is this common during pre-op?

    Hi everyone! Alabama here . My date is July 10th and 14 day pre-op starts this Wed. 26th. At least they are allowing me protein meat with veggies for supper. I already have been preparing myself and lost 23lbs since april starting this journey... So nervous, which I heard is normal. Family doesn't really care what I do. Heck I'm 36 and my kids are in their early teens, it's time for me and my health. Lol
  11. I'm happy for you and your great recovery. My surgery is July 10th and I hope my recovery is atleast half as smooth as yours if not more! Awesome! Thank you for the updates .
