    I was sleeved on the 25th too and I'm just getting some energy back. Different for everyone, but like@gabybab said it will get better!

    I'm a week post op today and woke up yesterday with my left upper leg swollen and sore. Called my Dr and they told me to go to the ER for an ultrasound to be sure there's no blood clots. Thankfully there wasn't. I have to have another one done in a week. The ER Dr said it's just muscular swelling. I go to my surgeon Wednesday so I'll see what he says.

    February 2019 Sleevers?

    I was sleeved the same day and am having the same pain and issue. I have yet to be able to lay in bed, I've been staying on the couch. Moving and drinking as much as I can but that big one is a nightmare [emoji31] My doctor said he had to make it bigger than he expected because of the size of my stomach. We'll get thru this!!

    Anyone get their sleeve February 2019

    Hang in there! I'm still really sore and don't ever feel like drinking. I'm making myself sip very often to make sure I'm hydrated. I don't want to end up back in the hospital. I'm not allowed shakes until Saturday. I'm on clear liquids. I'm surprised about the CPAP. My Dr had me bring mine to the hospital and told me to keep using it till the pulmonologist tells me not to. Which would be after another sleep study. Like I said hang in there! We got this! Just take it a sip at a time [emoji4]

    Miss concernd

    Hey! I have the same insurance, but I don't know if the cover skin removal. Someone told me along this process that they do as long as it it medically necessary. But I didn't hear that from the insurance company so I don't know how accurate it is. I had my surgery Monday and they put me on a new blood pressure pill. It's much smaller and I can get it down. They will tell you what you can and can't take. Where are you having it done? I'm in South Jersey. I don't know about everyone else but I have been very happy to have the help the past few days since I've been home. Walking and sipping can take a lot out of you so help is nice, but I don't know that it's required for each person. Have you seen a nutritionist yet? They will explain the whole pre-op diet for you. And don't worry about the number on a scale, worry about your health and how you feel. Your going to do great!
  6. Had my surgery yesterday at 339.

    Survived my first night after surgery! Doing well (I think lol) haven't been allowed to drink anything yet until I see my doctor. Just keep using mouth swans and rinsing my mouth wait the dry mouth wash. It's been very helpful! Hope all the other 25ths are doing well!! We go this! Just keep walking!
