  1. Yes, they give you these surgical wipes at preop to wipe down your body the night before & morning of surgery. If you shave they burn like crazy. I made that mistake before.

    Just not feeling good

    I was feeling the same, my surgery was 4/12. Turns out I was dehydrated with a very low potassium. Went to the ER & ended up staying the night. No fun but I am feeling better. Trying to stay hydrated & eat more. I wasn’t eating as much as I should of.
  3. I’m off 6 weeks per my surgeon, I may ask for a few more additional weeks, has been a hard transition.

    Thank you for your kind words. Each day I feel a little better. Being active helps a lot for me as well. Good luck in your recovery.

    Names for my new sleeve

    I named mine keke. She’s small, cute & feisty at times. Overall she’s been a trooper tho.
  9. Congrats. Have a safe and healthy pregnancy.
  10. So I had my sleeve done yesterday!!! Feeling ok today. Much better than expected. Nothing by mouth yet. Feeling thirsty, slight nausea. But feeling blessed to be up and moving around.

    @briswife15 omg... that’s what it feels like, some sort of spasm. Ok, noted. Will try warm rather than cold & hold off on the lemonade crystal light.

    Nearly One Year Out...LOVING LIFE!

    Thank you for posting. My surgery date is tomorrow. I’m nervous and reading your story made me go “ok, I can do this” . Keep killing those goals!

    I lied

    To each it’s own honestly. I tell ppl about my upcoming surgery. I feel like some people are nosey and some people really are looking for the courage to start their own journey. I am not ashamed whatsoever. This decision takes courage and it isn’t easy. If I can help someone else struggling with their weight I’m all for it. If they just want to be in my business be my guest. Either way I’m healthy & fabulous.

    Whats short of time frame

    My insurance required me to do a 6 month class before moving forward with surgery. I finished January 16th, I saw the surgeon February 19th for consult, and my surgery was scheduled that same week for April 12th. Roughly 3 months.
