African American Sleevers

I can't lie the whole box is still in my room. I just couldn't do it. I just made sure I got up walked hourly to prevent blood clots. Just call me chicken.

LOL! I can't blame you one bit... Congrats to you though on being sleeved. And I wish you the best in your new beginning :-)

No' date=' I don't have to take additional shots. Were you on a blood thinner before procedure?[/quote']

No. They said its to prevent blood clots after a serious surgery like this. I walk so that would alleviate the issue. What I've found after doing it 3x by myself (Big Grin) the needle, it melts into my stomach. I was afraid of nothing really.

I am also on Gallstone preventive meds & Prilosec...along with multi Vitamins, calcium citrate, b-12, B complex, hair, nails, skin formula all in liquid form. I have Vit C, chlorophyll and aloe Vera.

I'm only 4-days post op and feel so much better.

I walk as well but my surgeon suggested this. I'm so grown up. Needles are like kryptonite but I have evolved. So proud of me...

Good luck all sleevers. Aug. 19th is my new birthdate.

Thank You, I have not been sleeved yet. Kaiser (my health insurance) requires that I take a 12 week course. My classes begin on Aug 31st. I can't wait. I'm sure there will be other requirements but I'm not sure what they are right now. Hopefully this week will go be fast. I'm ready to get started! :)

While you do that get EVERYTHING done that you can. Labs, Xrays, Endoscopy, EKG, Psych Eval, and etc. If your using a one stop shop ask them if you can do some stuff on your own since you have those classes so wheb your done you can just submit for approval
