  1. Hi everyone. Today is 6 months out for me. Doing well. No problems at all...except constipation. I drink a lot of water, get in the recommended protein, exercise and take in less than 20 grams of carbs. a day. My surgery weight was 203 on 1/15/20. Today I weigh 133.2 ...7/15/20. I’m pretty happy with that. I do have to confess I get a bit jealous when I read a lot of you lose quite a bit more than that in the same amount of time. I have lost 10 pounds every months...almost consistently! I can say I have rarely ever went over 500 calories a day since day 1. My goal is 120 lbs. almost there!!! Just wanted to check in and wish everyone well!!!!
  2. Hi, I am 5 months post op. I’m still breaking open my Prilosec, ursodiol and splitting my Topral. When can I stop this and take them whole? Thank you.

    Good morning. Thank you to you both. It’s helped very much to hear there that. I feel better knowing I’m “ not progressing as well as most”. Blessings to you all and I pray everyone has a wonderful day!

    PAIN, 8 DAYS POST OP

    Thank you. I was becoming discouraged because it seemed as though so many people were pain free within a short time. It helps to hear there are others that are taking a bit longer to be pain free. Thank you! Today is the best day I’ve had! Still have a lot of pressure in my lower abdomen when I stand up but the sharp pains are gone!
  5. Congratulations 🎊
  6. Wow, congratulations🎉🎊. I’m very happy for you!

    PAIN, 8 DAYS POST OP

    Thank you for your response. When I say exercising I mean walking around the block and walking up and down basement stairs a few times a day... so nothing vigorous. This pain is worse than any pain I’ve every had. I’ve broken my legs and that was nothing in comparison. I just feel kinda disappointed because a few of the posts I’ve read sounded like people were not in much pain. I just have this constant stabbing pain in my lower abdomen that doesn’t let up. Again, thank you for your answer. Have a great day😊

    Thank you so much for answering! I’m just worrying that something could be wrong...I’m a worry-wart. Lol.

    Hi, I had my sleeve on Jan 15. Day 8 post op. Done by Dr Adair in SAULT Ste Marie Michigan. Best wishes to everyone
  11. Hi, I had my sleeve on Jan 15. It’s day 8 and I am still in pain. I really thought I would be up exercising and moving around without any problems at all. Pain wise, I have a sharp stabbing pain on my right side, and a dull throbbing pain in my left lower stomach. I have been taking liquid Tylenol ( took liquid norco for 3 days post op) Is this pain normal. I did go see my doctor and he said the pain on the right is from where the stomach was removed. Does anyone else still have pain 8 days out? Thank you for all inputs.
