    Just to update, I went to my yearly OB/GYN appt and everything is perfect. He said spotting can happen and since I still have my ovaries and a sliver of my cervix and on top have lost 50 pounds that was probably what caused it. I haven't had any bleeding or spotting since and all labs at my pcp came back normal including urinalysis.

    I started this whole journey last Oct 2017 when I found out that my back issues and pain I have been in for over 20 years was found to be caused by the disappearance of a disk in my lower back along with my spine being very miss aligned. The orthopedic told me he wouldnt do surgery to fix my back until I lost 50 pounds and not to take to long to do it because he couldn't understand why I wasn't paralyzed already. I weighed in a 365 lbs then.
    In the process of doing all the hoop jumping for the insurance company for me to have the sleeve done I lost 35 lbs in a year. I just had my sleeve done on the 16 of October and have no clue what my weight is ringing in at, at this time, due to the fact I dont have a home scale that can handle my weight to begin with. I go back to the doc the 31 for my 2 week check up and am curious to see how much I have lost.
    I know I have lost some but not knowing the amounts is driving me nuts right now. All I can say is my pants are getting looser and I might need a belt soon to keep them up [emoji16]
    I love the fact that this thread is started I am over 40 years old (44 to be exact), and over 300 lbs. I know reading others stories and success helps me know I can do this and I am not the only one who has had to go threw it all.

    I did look in the topic list and didnt see anything that would come close to this topic if I did miss it I am sorry...
    I just had my surgery on the 16 of oct and have been having weird pains in random places such as hip, rump, back of the upper arm. It feels as if I am pulling a small section of the muscle off the bone or tearing of the muscle. Any one else having this type of issues and have you figured out how to fix it?

    I agree with Matt, most people bring too much, I did. Lots of great posts on here about this topic.
    I was glad I brought my own pillow.
    As for bringing any of your own small appliances with extension cords, I advise against this. This is not allowed in the hospital I work at and may be a hassle for you if you try to bring something.

    I am not sure how much weight I have lost since I am only on day 6 after surgery. I am just praying that it's not the start of shingles from all the stress of the operation. But you do give me another reason and that it could be a possibility of something else. Which is a relief!!
    Thanks for a possible explanation!

    I just had my surgery on the 16th of Oct. I haven't had any issues besides the pain... I can deal with high levels of pain from breaking my arms legs ankles.... but the pain from having my stomach cut and trying to move around has been just about putting me in tears. But I am still getting at least 10 minutes of a walk in around the house they are just in turtle mode. Lol

    I'm doing ok. I will find out at my next orthopedic appointment if I need surgery on my foot. I'm almost feeling back to normal 12 days post op. I have my surgery follow up later today and get my staples out. Yay!
    Overall, I'm hanging in there and can't wait to be able to go on my walks again!
