    In Limbo (not the fun kind)

    Mine was postponed twice and it ended up taking 15 months from my first consultation to my surgery date. My advice is hang in there and keep your eye on the prize. You'll get there.

    Weight loss after sleeve

    Catwomam, That does make sense I had a saline drip for 2.5 days strait. Its probably H2O weight. I don't feel that bad now.
  3. I had my surgery a week ago and still have big knots under the skin. This must just be scar tissue. If someone who is a little farther out then me can tell me if that go away? Thanks, Mattk53

    CA Guy, Thanks for the info, I'm glad they'll go away after a while. Right now they're rough and raised after a week.

    Weight loss after sleeve

    I was also wondering they same thing. How fast does the wight came off? 7 days only 3 pounds. I don't know what I was expecting, I thought Id be lower at my first weigh-in.

    Post OP wounds

    Yes, I have 6 or 7 inch long incisions from the laparoscopic robot at the incision sites. They aren't huge but they are visible with my shirt off. I guess it could be stitches under the skin know that I feel they that's a possibility., I was told they glued the incisions closed on the surface but not sure what's going on inside. Did they eventually go away or at least get smaller?

    It went great. I'm a week out and still a little sore. Doctors said everything went as good as it could have.
