  1. Tmrrw makes 1 week postop for me. I gained 4.2lbs while being in the hospital for surgery. I’m down those extra pounds & 2.6lbs on top of that. I know that the extra weight came from IV & probably also Water retention. I woke up out of anesthesia burping & the following day, started to pass gas. I was finally able to poop this morning with the help of milk of magnesia. I’m able to get down 2 Protein Shakes a day, crystal light & other fluids. Can’t wait til I see the true weight come off. I’m big on taking measurements & celebrating NSVs, but it was a shocker to see the weight gain after surgery. You can keep up with my journey on IG @CurlyGirl_GetsFit

    Gained Weight Right After Surgery

    Thank you! I appreciate it. Being that it was my first surgery & first time having an IV, I didn’t know about the weight gain, nor was I informed about it so it took me by surprise lol.

    Finally Sleeved

    Thank you! I thought it was going to be a hard recovery for me, but it took me by surprise when I woke up from the anesthesia burping right away lol. I honestly got lucky cuz I know majority of people go through it badly

    Finally Sleeved

    Surgery went well on the 21st. I was about 97% gas pain free. It seems like I didn’t even have surgery. The main incision site hurts so much. I’m able to do a lot of things on my own. I guess I got lucky w| my recovery process as I can do a lot by myself than most ppl who just had the surgery. If you guys have IG, please follow me! @CurlyGirl_GetsFit ☺️

    Fear of having surgery??

    I guess I was just making myself think it is worse than it actually is.
  16. As the 21st gets closer, I’m getting more nervous about having surgery. I think the main thing I am afraid of is being put to sleep. This will be my first surgery. How did you guys get over the fear of having surgery? Did they give you anything before surgery to relax you?
