    Hand my Sleeve on Sept. 5, happy and miserable!

    I'm so sorry it's this bad for you. I think with time you'll be able to have of these foods again. Thankfully I haven't experienced the "dumping" nor vomiting. I try different foods including some of my favorites and haven't had any issues yet. I have noticed the chills though. How are you with that? I get cold very easily.

    Wow, congrats on your weight loss! I can totally see why you did it. So our surgery was in the same day?! Cool, so we've lost just about the same amount. I was hoping to lose more than that, but I guess it's good to help with loose skin? But that's wonderful, you're a strong woman and I'm happy you've made the decision. My mom wasn't obese like me, but she had diabetes and ultimately passed from renal failure a few years ago. My sisters, who weren't as heavy as I was have diabetes and though they're 15 and 13 yrs my senior, loved hinting that I'll get it too. Well, I'm super happy that I didn't have it nor any other obesity related health problems beside my ankles. Omg, prior to surgery, walking 5.5 blocks was hell, and now I walk it like it's nobody's business. I am so happy that I had this surgery because I feel like I'm getting my mobility back, slowly, but surely I hope. Thanks for sharing with me! How are you feeling though? How's your eating? Do you have any issues?

    Hi, I didn't really understand your message. Sorry, I'm not familiar with the lingo. RNY, EGD and NPO? Thanks though! I'm between 22 and 23 lbs down. For whatever reason it fluctuates and I've been stalled for the past THREE WEEKS!!! Omg, I'm so disappointed. Good luck to you!

    Hmm, I'll have to try that. So far, I can only drink cold liquids. I eat ice and popsicles. I'll try room temp. To see how my body accepts it. Thanks! Congrats to you as well.

    Wow, really?! When I went for my one week follow-up, the doctor told me I'll be able to eat "mushy" foods in two weeks, but the nurse told me in 30 days. Hmm, it definitely varies. Good to know!

    Thanks for the tip! I'll be sure to try it.
  8. Hi guys, after canceling two previous surgery dates out of fear of death and losing my partner, I finally did it! I'm super happy as I'm already 23lbs down in 3wks, but I'm so miserable because I want to eat and I can't!!! lol I'm still in my liquid phase, but I've cheated a few times and thankfully I don't have any nausea or dumping. Water is still hard to swollow even with sugar free mixes, the same goes for soups. It almost feels like it all gets stuck in my throat and then I have to wait for it to slowly digest. Overall, my scars have healed and I'm super happy with my decision. My bf still thinks it's the easy way out, but I can tell he's enjoying my newly developing body. Thank you for all your support!

    VSG candidate, boyfriend NOT onboard!

    Thank you! I am to an extent. I've spent the last seven years of my life with him and he's been there for me through all of my ups and downs, even when he's contributed to my downs, and that is why it hurts me so much.

    You're so fortunate to have his support! I hope to have that one day. The thing is, he's supported me with decision I've made, but this one thing he just doesn't believe in it. I don't need his approval, but I guess it'll make me feel better knowing that he'll be there. *Sigh*

    Thank you for sharing and the advice! That's great that your bf came around and even help with the process!!! That's what my bf thinks as well because my only issue is my swollen ankles. I literally take a car (if he can't drive me) everywhere! I'm in NYC and there's no way I can take PT because my ankles swell up and hurt when I walk for too far and stand for too long. They even swell up when I sit for too long! It's major problem for me and he knows that, but somehow he is convinced that I don't need the surgery. Oh my God, I am so frustrated and undecided. 😒

    Oh my, Frust8, thank you for sharing your story with me! I am so sorry you had to go through this. It's such a shame when the people we love and care about refuse to show support when it truly counts. I'm happy you've found the strength and courage to do what you needed to do for you. I'm working on gathering my strength again. All the best to you.

    Thank you for your warm and heartfelt responses! He's truly tried his hardest to help me in the past; he's done lots of research as I have, invested in getting me equipments, helped me to make better food choices, devoted time to working out with me, but all of that didn't work. Either my calves or my ankles pain would get in the way and then I'd take a break only to start all over again. This cycle has been going on for just about six years and out of respect, I would try my hardest to do it again, knowing that I couldn't. Then I'd obsess and give up when the numbers on the scale didn't change and I am exhausted! He's always complained about my weight, so the stress from that didn't help and now I have an excellent chance at success, but I'm getting even more stress. He's currently putting a file together to show me that it's the wrong thing to do and although I know it's not true, I'm doubting my decision. I just don't want to be fat anymore...
