  1. Hello everyone, I’m scheduled for the sleeve on December 10th. Two of my family members had the sleeve done and they both complain of developing acid reflux after getting the sleeve and they both said they never had problems with the sleeve before. I was told that if I never had issues with acid reflux I would be okay but now I’m concerned that I will have this issue as well. Any thoughts? Has anyone had the sleeve done and developed reflux issues? Has anyone been told they wouldn’t develop reflux after getting the sleeve if they haven’t had it before?
  2. Yeah, we ain’t ready 🤦🏾‍♀️🤣. Try protein shots. There on Amazon. You can get your required dosage without making yourself sick trying to get those shakes down. How are you feeling? My experience has been interesting. I Started with lots of pain but each day gets better. ❤️☺️
  3. I just had VSG surgery on 12/10. I was so nervous the weeks leading up to my surgery. I had anxiety and trouble sleeping but you know what? I did it and I’d do it again. The decision was easy but the process is difficult. You just have to get through it. Remember why you decided to do this. Remember how good you are going to feel afterwards. Today makes a week. I’m home, moving around and tolerating liquids and some applesauce. It’s hard to predict how you will feel 6 weeks post op but imo, you get stronger everyday. Your body is going to go through a lot of changes after a surgery like this. I’m still early in mines, I’m sore, not as strong as I was but also had 85% of my stomach removed. I wish you all the best and know that any choice you make you YOUR choice. Take care 💜

    This surgery is bullshit...

    Hi, I’m so sorry you’re having a difficult time. I have surgery in December and I worry about this same thing happening to me. I’ve heard so many different theories as to why the weight comes off so slow. If you don’t mind me asking how many pounds were you overweight? Do you find that you are able to consume what you used to? If so, I would definitely talk with your surgeon. I heard a woman on here say she did the bypass after the sleeve was not effective enough. Have you talked to your surgeon? I wish you all the best and know that it will get better. 🧡

    Depression and gastric bypass

    I too suffer from depression and anxiety. This year has been horrific for me. I talk to my friends and family about this and they help me a great deal. I do feel scared but I find talking about it helps with the anxiety and worries that I’m feeling. I wish you the best and please know that you got this! 👊🏾

    If you don’t mind me asking, why do you have to get revision?

    I’m not happy

    Hi. I’ve struggled with my weight for most of my adult life. My weight has fluctuated so much and I’m tired of looking and feeling the way I feel. I lost my mom four months ago and it hurts like hell. I wish you all the best and I pray for your comfort-emotionally, psychologically and physically. I’m scheduled for surgery on December 10th. I’m nervous and worried but I’m also excited to look and feel better. My back and feet hurt constantly and my anxiety and depression is all over the place and I dread taking pictures and going out because I’m so ashamed of my weight gain. Since my mom has passed food has definitely been my comfort.
  9. Hi! I am scheduled for my bariatric sleeve on December 10th. I will be traveling to Mexico because my insurance does not cover weight loss surgery. I’m nervous and excited too. I’m so sick of the up and downs and I’m looking forward to stability, being healthy and looking and feeling good. I provided the clinic with my information and based on the information they suggested the sleeve.
