Looking to make the 20 somethings forum active



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

So I wanted to make an "ALL CALL" for us 20 somthing sleevers. I don't have any scientific proof BUT I think the recovery, weightloss, and other issues may have something to do with age. I am 25 and getting sleeved on Jan. 22. I am the mother of a goregous 7 month old and a wife for the past 2 years. I just wanted to make this forum active again.

With that said?

What's your story? How was recovery? How's Life?!

Hi! I'm Jes. I'm twenty Three . I was just sleeved on December 20th, 2010. I lost 26 pounds pre op, and 24 post.

I have been married for four years :)

I've been overweight my entire life. My mom had the lapband last February, and it made me start thinking it was time for ME to do something.

I had a rough two days after surgery. But, then everything got better with each day.

How are you?

Hello! I am 27, was sleeved on 12/27/10 and am down 25 post op and 35 total. :) Struggling a bit with the night eating, wondering if anyone else has the same problem?

Hey! I'm 23 Years old and I got my super sleeve July 2010. I have gone from my highest of size 20 to now size 6!

Okay I know this is silly but I was hanging out with some friends the other night. One of my old guy friends was teasing me and picked me up like a bag of potatos! I have never had someone do that to me. I always wished I was small enough of a guy to do that without thinking. I know it is silly but it just made me feel good about myself. I am not sure about everyone else but I have to remind myself that I'm small. It almost seems like a dream.

Hi everyone! I am 28 and was sleeved on Dec 13th. I have lost 31 pounds post op and 36 pounds pre op for a total of 67. I had been feeling good but overdid it on Sunday after helping lift a dresser upstairs! The surgeon said I was clear to resume all acivities. But now I have been nauseous and in pain since Sunday evening. So I. Am back to having liquids and hope that will help. Oh and some exciting news. I started out in a 3x top and 24 pants. I now can get into an xl top and 16 pants. Yay!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
