    Concerned about Energy and Complications

    Hello all I am 61 and got my sleeve 6/5/17. I will be honest I have had no complications. The first two days was not fun but I had just had major surgery. I have no regrets. My loss is slow and I am happy with that. I am more active with more energy each day. Yes the first two weeks was exhausting but now on my fifth week I couldn't ask for more. I started at 256 and today I am at 218. Stay away from the complications forum. It will only scare you.

    Fibromyalgia and Sleeve

    Jadeskys Please keep up posted on your progress. I am so sorry that the sleeve has not worked for you. I am still hoping that my sleeve will help with my fibro. I had my procedure on Monday so here is hoping. Take care and prayers.

    New to forum

    My surgery was yesterday and to be honest I'm ready to go home. I still have pain and the nausea but I can't believe how good I feel. I am excited and committed to my new life and better health.

    Tomorrow is the day

    Thank you! I am in my room and the gas pains are the worst. I had a great surgical team and wonderful dr. I might get to come home in the morning I am excited and committed to my new life and better health.
  5. Am I nervous, no anxious yes. My surgery was scheduled for 12:30 now 11:30. I am just ready to get it done. The liquid diet phase has been rough. We had a wedding to go to and I am proud to say I did not cheat. Today my husband smoked some awesome fish and I did not cheat. Yes I am patting myself on the back and I am very happy that I know I can handle this. Keep me in your prayers

    June sleeve buddies?

    Why are you having second thoughts? Do you think that you are not mentally prepared for the changes we will have to make? I had a hard time at first, but I feel that will all of the reading I have been doing and slowly getting things that I will need has helped me tremendously. I will be more than happy to be your sleeve buddy if you think that will help. Please understand I am an older lady (Just turned 61), but I am one heck of a listener, I became a first time mom at the age if 53 and not to just one but 2 little ones, I never seem to do what others my age do. Yes, I am trying to make a funny but rest assured I will be here if you need me.

    June sleeve buddies?

    I have a lot of family and friend support but sometimes I like getting on here and reading what others are dealing with or if I can give someone else support. I am so glad that my surgeon suggested this site. I have learned and found out that I am not the only one going through this.

    June sleeve buddies?

    I am really excited to see so many June 5 sleevers!! We have got this and we will succeed and be winners. I figure if we can all make it through the liquid diet phase we can make it through anything. Can we all keep each other encouraged? I am willing to participate.

    Anyone in the St. Louis area?

    I am in between Quincy and Springfield. I am going to check and see what is in my area. I started out at Memorial with their program but on the advice of my insurance company I changed clinics. Long story on that one. CAL-GAL-IN-MO good luck with your surgery tomorrow. I will be praying for you and you will be in my thoughts. Just remember you've got this and you will succeed.

    I wish I could find a meeting close to me. I am 2 1/2 hours from St. Louis. I am very grateful that the insurance company directed me to this clinic. OutsideMatchInside I want to take a moment to thank you for all of your post and input. I read each one and no I am not stalking you :-)
