    Losin' it in MN got a reaction from MariaC6 in How much weight did you lose the first 90 days ?   
    I feel like I’m more of a slow loser too. I lost 30lbs. pre-op, and then 44 the first 90 days. I’m now at 4 months out and down at total of 85lbs. from my highest weight of 299.
    It’s fun reading these stories. Way to go everyone!!!

    Losin' it in MN got a reaction from Ladylove72 in Hummus and what?   
    I am allowed deli meat at this stage, so I took a piece of thin smoked turkey and spread some hummus on it rolled up. I also did what others are saying....just ate it with a spoon:)

    Losin' it in MN got a reaction from bufbills in How many days did it take you to feel ok?   
    Day 1 and 2 weren't the greatest, but I also had a hiatal hernia repair that made it pretty painful to take a deep breath. By day 3 and 4 I started to feel pretty good. I took two weeks off of work to recover and just went back this past Monday. Things went fine, but I learned not to do too much too fast! I've got some new pain that I didn't have before returning to work!

    Two days post op and I'm back home now. Managing pain Ok. The worst pain I had was from the hiatal hernia repair that was done at the same time as the VSG. Wow ouch. It's still hard to take a deep breath. Now I'm just working on getting in enough Clear Liquids to stay hydrated, getting up to walk around, and trying to get some sleep. I can't seem to get comfortable in bed! Hope all the October folks are doing well!

    Losin' it in MN got a reaction from JoanneLaRusch in Feeling so hungry today   
    Hi Joanne - I' 6 days post op and feel like I've been hungry since day 3! My program has me on Clear Liquids until my 1st post op appointment which is 8 days post op. I am so hungry, and it's definitely not head hunger, it's real hunger. I can't tell you how excited I am to move to the full liquids stage. I don't need to feel full, I just don't want to be hungry.:) I'm hoping other people who have gotten a sleeve and are further out can confirm that being hungry in the beginning is normal for some people!

    Hi Doug - I had my surgery on the 28th and also had a hiatal hernia fixed. I am experiencing the same thing. They keep telling me that it's normal because of the gas and hernia repair and to keep using the spirometer (breathing thingy) - so I do. I'm still going to call in tomorrow and keep asking though!

    Hi Everyone! I'm scheduled for my sleeve on October 28th in the Twin Cities, MN metro. Excited, but REALLY nervous. Right now I'm really looking for community and support from other people going through the same experience. So glad that I found this forum!
