    Any April 2021 surgeries?!

    I had my surgery 4-16 and today I was allowed to have eggs and mushy things. I was allowed to have sf jello and pudding on full liquid diet this whole past week. I understand what you mean about pushing it. I made 1 scrambled egg and only ate half of it. Listen to your body.

    I had my surgery on Friday and I’m still the same weight I was on surgery day. Is this normal to not see results yet?

    Any April 2021 surgeries?!

    I heard people had difficulty with this so I avoided anything super cold in the hospital. I just had my surgery Friday. I let anything super cold sit in my mouth. Today (Sunday) I am drinking ice water and was able to have a sugar free popsicle. I think everyone is different unfortunately. I was scared to try cold things but was dying for something cold so I just tried it and was lucky. I’ve always been able to drink with absolutely no issues since my surgery on Friday. Hope this turns around for you and it’s only temporary!

    Thanks. I know to experience it as well and had the lapband over 10 years ago and remembered it happening weeks or months later. Just not right away. Thanks!

    Anyone experience mood swings after their sleeve? This is my first full day home and I’m ok one minute and the next I’m teary eyed. Anyone else experience this?

    Any April 2021 surgeries?!

    Surgery went ok and I’ve been in my room for about 5 hours. Have been able to drink about 12 oz since then. Gas pains as I knew and expected have been the worst. I have a drain in. Not looking forward to that coming out as I’ve had them before. Overall feeling good. Surgery was delayed for hours this morning due to an emergency surgery so I was so excited to get out of this bed and moving. Hoping to leave tomorrow for home.

    I am sorry to hear that. You ultimately have to do what is best for you and your family. You will be in my thoughts and prayers and will always have a friend here and an ear to listen. ❤️

    Everything ok?
  12. I had the lapband a little over 10 years ago. I was almost 400 at my highest. When I started my process I was 386. With the band I lost 170 pounds highest to lowest. I then gained what doctors called happy weight when I met my boyfriend. It was about 10 pounds and that was where I stayed until I had my emergency surgery in October 2019 to remove my band. I lost my job and then covid hit. I regain a lot and now above 300 again. A number I promised myself I would never see. I remember the first day I weighed over 300 in the office at the doctors I just cried. I tried to be kind to myself. I’m scheduled for the sleeve 4-16. Was originally suppose to be 2-19 but was pushed back for different reasons. I’ve read a lot of posts on here that made me wonder if there were many ladies on here above 300. Glad I’m not alone. :)

    Any March 2021 Sleeve Patients?

    I haven’t even had my surgery yet and I’m worried about the what have I done thoughts. I had the lapband over 10 years ago and had it removed in 2019 and I remember having those thoughts with that.

    I was given surgical soap and three sealed wash cloths. I have to wash from chin to groin the three days prior to my surgery. And then I will have to do it the day of at the hospital.

    Any April 2021 surgeries?!

    I’m not sure. March seemed like it had a lot. I actually was originally scheduled in February, then March and now April so I’ve been in each of those groups. March and April have both had high numbers of people.
