3rd fill today and 2nd time meeting post op with my surgeon

Recommended Posts

And it went very well/ My surgeon praised e today on my steady but slowish weight loss. I was Banded 3/2/10 and I am down 30 lbs since surgery. I am currently up to 7cc's in a 10cc band. We will see how this restriction results because I only feel slight restriction..

Has anyone gotten praise from their surgeon? I felt so good that he was proud of my weightloss so far and I have only been out 3 months as of yesterday.

My port is difficult to actually get, and my surgeon does it in his office, and not under fluro. He said the reason why it was so tricky was because I had lost a significant amount of body fat since surgery which in time can complicate the port.. But it is a good issue..

I am just so happy today that I feel like jumping up and down!:Dancing_biggrin:

That is so great for you! I have not seen my Dr. since surgery. He has his PA do all the fills and follow up I guess. Not something that I knew or even thought of before surgery to ask. It kind of bothers me a little, but I don't have problems so I guess it doesn't matter.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
