    John Pullen got a reaction from minervaxx6 in HELP! Freaking out - need honest feedback   
    Had my sleeve on 3rd. No pain issues or problems with gas buildup. Stuck ridgidly to LD and actually only used 3 of 5 Protein shakes a day. My wife says I look like I haven't had surgery other than 5 scars on my torso. I had appendix surgery last year and was familiar with what to expect. Also I had a great Bariatric staff providing guidance and knowledge for the last 6 months. From reading all of these forums it seems there is a wide variance in the process around country and world. The more support you have the easier the process.

    Before starting LD, had a covered dish dinner at a church class. Had some Paella and chocolate mousse. dropped 24 lbs during next 2 weeks and surgery was 3rd so I will have another 2 weeks of LD. So far it's a breeze!!!

    Pre-op diet has 2 purposes. One is to shrink the liver and the greater majority of overweight people have fatty livers. Second, it is to prepare u for post-op life.

    Started LD on 20th. Had 5 premier shakes and was too full. Went down to 4 the next day and 3/day since. No issues or hunger pains. Dropped 20 lbs through 6 days!

    I am on the 3rd. Started 2 week LD today. First day has not been bad and still have one more shake to go. Hopefully that will carry me through the night.
    When I started in June, I was put on a 1500-1800 cal
    diet a day. Over the months I shrunk it down to where I was eating 1000 cal or less a day. Hopefully, this will help over the next weeks.

    I was diagnosed with SA 5 years ago but probably had it ongoing 5-10 years b4. Last year I had nose surgery and this year had surgery for ruptured appendix. No issues with anesthesia. Hoping to have Bariatric surgery early January. That being said I am not underestimating inherent risks with all surgery where you have to be put to sleep. You always have to weigh the risks vs rewards. I am confident I will come through fine and will pray you do too.
