    I hiccup when I am overly full. It is a great alarm system. Also, my stomach begins to feel full quickly now. I am 14 weeks post-op.

    My first week was painful. A week after that it was tolerable. Now (9 weeks out) it is amazing.

    There is nothing more dangerous from a WLS perspecrive than drinking empty calories. Lay off the wine. Only drink it occasionally or for special occasions. Work on getting your Protein and veggies instead.
    45 pounds is fine for 6 months, but if you want to speed things up you know what you need to do. I suggest you take full advantage of this honeymoon period of weight loss before it's over. We all only have such a relatively small window of time where we have so much restriction and reduced hunger, it's a shame to piss it away with poor choices.

    His Fairest reacted to Babbs in Will I still be able to drink lots of water?   
    Usually only the first few months after the surgery. I'm 9 months out, and I can drink 16 oz of Water in about 5-10 minutes now. Before it would take me an hour or more. Weeks after surgery? It takes half the day lol.
    For some reason, I still have trouble with really cold Water. It goes down easier at room temperature or hot (like with tea or lemon).

    I had my surgery on Monday. Went into the OR at 7:50 am and the dr talked to my folks at 8:25am saying surgery was over and I did great. I was in recovery til 10, then walked around the corner to a recliner where I sat and took walks from until noon. They dismissed me at noon. I have the normal aches and pains associated with surgery but nothing major. I fall asleep at a moments notice and wake up as quickly. I walked to the end of the block and back this morning. Got 40 g Protein in today. Sip slowly but constantly. Don't over do it. Enjoy your new life!

    His Fairest got a reaction from alwaysvegas in 5 days to go and having anxiety   
    I have researched thoroughly.
    I have kept all my appointments.
    I have clearance from the insurance.
    I have a surgery date - April 6th.
    I have filled out ALL of the paperwork for everyone.
    I have lost 9 pounds in 9 days on this pre-op diet.
    I am ready in every way.
    BUT...
    This morning I have had two panic attacks.
    Anyone else have these?
    Advice? Encouragement?

    Hi all,
    On March 24th, 2015 I had my gastric sleeve surgery and boy was it a journey! I had my surgery at 1:30 and was not able to leave recovery until 2:30 AM. I had to stay until Friday in the hospital because I refused to eat or drink anything. I was in too much pain and nauseous.
    Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at home I constantly begged my mom and boyfriend to drive me back to the hospital because I was DYING; however, they refused and just gave me some pain meds.
    On Monday, I felt like a brand new person! I felt great and I had a NON-scale VICTORY.... The promise ring my boyfriend bought me for Christmas FINALLY fit. And it was even a little bit big!
    Yesterday, I overdid it as I went Prom Dress shopping. I did get my dress, but boy am I in so much pain. Too much bending and moving around. I was not a happy camper the rest of the night. I should have known that I was not ready, but I really wanted to go prom dress shopping with my mom and twin sister!
    Today, I am in a lot of pain and nauseous, so I am going to take it easy today. I may go out for a little while to get my nails done and walk around, but I can't overdo it like I did yesterday!
    I have not weighed myself, but I feel good. I received many compliments from people who did not even know that I went for WLS. I am also still on Clear liquids until Friday! I will update then!
    BTW posting pic of Prom Dress here! I had another victory I went from a size 22 dress to a size 20! Don't mind my face, I was worn out from everything!

    my thoughts are with you and I haven't been cleared yet for surgery but I think from what I have read here that what you are feeling is pretty normal. You are not alone.
