  1. My surgery was at 6:30am and I was home by 4pm that same day. Was up walking the halls @ 9am. My surgeon doesnt keep sleevers overnight unless there is an issue. They just made sure I could walk a certain distance, pee a certain amount, get an ounce of Water down every 15 minutes, no nausea or vomitting, got 2 bags of Fluid in me and pain level was okay.

  2. sleeved 2/10, down 12 pounds and my first follow up appointment is in a couple of hours. Doing good so far. Im still on full liquids and only get all my Protein in by drinking it. Trying to drink more Water though because I am slacking on that part. Hoping I can start mushies soon but my plan says one more week of full liquids....I dont know if I can do it honestly, get really hungry at times. Still pain at the left incision site. But the one great thing I am noticing is that my skin is amazing! Clear, small pores, even tone. I am loving it! Younger and lighter! lol

  3. 1. How do you feel? Any issues?

    Im good, except for the last couple nights have been waking up because of a wierd felling in my stomach. They feel like hunger pains.....

    2. How is your water/protein intake?

    I probably should be drinking more Water but hard to get it all in

    3. Have you had your first follow-up appt? How did it go? If not, when is your appt?

    first follow-up is tomorrow!

    4. What stage food are you on (full liquids, purees, etc.)?

    full liquids, cant wait to move to purees

    5. Have you hit buyer's remorse yet or still glad you did it?

    no remorse :)

    6. Lastly - how much have you lost since the surgery?

    down 12.

  4. I was sleeved on 10 Feb and I have to say it wasn't bad at all. I did have to be pushed back because my surgeon was called into an emergency surgery right before me (I pray the patient lived). They gave me something in my IV to relax me and I remember nothing after that until the recovery room.

    Hardest part of it all was all the needles. It's not normal but my veins aren't normal either. The IV "infiltrated" twice so I ended up with 3 different IVs. Then after the third they came to star blood but all my good veins were jacked up from all the IVs. Smh I cried and begged them not to stick me anymore but I'd still be there if I hadn't.

    I'm home now and trying my best to get in my Protein. Suprisingly, nothing is disgusting so far. But I'm scared to drink because the full.feeling is the worst! I slept in a chair last night. Quite frankly my Ass hurts from sitting and laying so much :lol: (I have been walking some though) I'm dying for a shower but I'm freezing cold for some reason and the thought of being colder after the shower scares me :P

    I'm feeling better every day. Trying not to take the pain meds they prescribed but I did fill it just in case.

    My dad came in last night (I got home around noon yesterday) and before he said hi he says, "so how much weight have you lost"..... Lmao! It doesn't work that way dad! :lol::lol:

    All in all, I'm glad I did this...so far :rolleyes:

    I was sleeved on Feb 10th also! It has been easy for me to get all my liquids and Protein down but as of yesterday Im starting to get really hungry. I also can't tell when enough is enough when I am drinking. Its very frusterating trying to figure this all out. Im scared to push it and then get really full.
