    That's not bad statistics at all, very encouraging. When I started the pre OP diet I was 235 lbs, if I loose all the weight and only gain 5 to 10 lbs of the weight by 5 year or more I will be still so happy. To me that is still success. I am 5'9, my ideal weight to be is between 140-150 lbs. I hope I can make it to 140 lbs so I always have some room and dint freak out if I can a few pounds. I am very happy I met you on here, now we can compare our progress to one another. I wish us both lots of luck. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I am kind of confused how they are claiming that plication is a gastric sleeve rescue procedure. The long term weight loss is less. https://www.bariatric-surgery-source.com/gastric-plication-surgery.html#compare Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Oh my, I feel your pain. I never knew that occ does sleeve rescue. Gastric plication is it's own option, while in was there there was a young girl in her late teens that had come in to do the gastric plication surgery as opposed to the VSG. Do you know how much they charge for the plication surgery? Well when Dr. Ariel Ortiz told me that he does the super sleeve surgery (he invented himself) basically after he resects the stomach, he uses staples to close the incision area than he uses a row of nylon sutures to reinforce the same area. This helps reinforce the area to keep it intact longer. I am hoping this method also helps prevent long term stomach stretching out and ruining the sleeves results. Can you tell me what is the percentage of success stories as opposed to failures that you have seen on ooc Facebook page? Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Omg, I feel just like you. Can't stand protein shakes anymore. I just want to gag when I see it. I also have sneaked in a few pureed foods. I also am so nervous about this holding up for me. During my Skype consult with Dr. Ortiz, he told me that he does the super sleave. I don't do social media sites so I am not on occ Facebook page. So there are people on there that talk about their sleeve failing for them? Hearing this makes me even more nervous about this working for me too. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Hi SLSH, sorry for the delay in reply. I somehow missed your post and just saw it. So we both had Dr. Ortiz do our VSG, that's fantastic. [emoji106] How is your recovery coming along? Yes, I wonder if we did pass by each other in Marriot. [emoji4] Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Hi Brittany, they put you on pureed foods already? Are you allowed to puree meat with rice and eat it ? Or is there a special list? They told me I can not start pureed food until day 18. As far as the pain, please call the Dr. Office and let them know. Hopefully they will know what it is and be able to help you. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Frustr8 I am so sorry your journey has been so complex and difficult. So you did not have the VGS, but I give you so much credit, you are so brave to do any type of bariatric surgery at the age of 73, you are victorious. Continue to carry the torch and stand strong.

    Hi SLSH, thanks for sharing. When did you have the surgery? How is your over all healing process coming along? Where do you live and who did your surgery? I am very worried my sleeve is not tight and small enough enough. My over all recovery has been so easy. I am not allowed to exercise till day 22 post op, I felt so good that on day 11 post op I went on the treadmill for 20 min, walked and the next day I did 25 min on the treadmill. I felt just fine and still do. Is my speedy recovery normal? I start eating pureed food on day 17, June 29th 2019. I hope I can tell than if my stomach was made small and tight enough. I am so worried. I wonder if anyone knows exactly how many oz or mls a gastric sleeved stomach is supposed hold for each meal once fully healed? Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Hmmm, my experience has been totally different. I barely have had any pain, and drinking liquids has been just fine for me. I am starting to worry maybe my sleeve is not small enough or tight enough. I only had a some pain the first 2 days, by the 3rd day I was at the circus with my family in Mexico. Well I did have a lot of inflammation at the area where the fundus is in the stomach, so they gave me a steroid shot twice, once on the 2nd day post op and another one on the 4 th post OP day, maybe that's what speed up my recovery. As far as drinking enough liquids, I recommend keeping vitamin water zero or powerade zero next to you at all times and just taking a few sips every 5 to 10 min. This method helped me a lot to get 64 fl oz in a day. I really wanted to do my surgery back here in LA, but health insurance would not cover my surgery because I was not fat enough for them yet. Anyway I am so happy I found you, since we almost got out surgeries around the same time, we can compare our progress together. [emoji173] I hope and pray this works for both of us.

    Hi Brittany, I am doing good, a lot better than expected. My sleeve was done by Dr. Ariel Ortiz in Tijuana, he did a fantastic job. How are you and recovering going for you? Where did you get yours done and where do you live? Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app
