July Master List



Recommended Posts

I thought they would never get to me. I was told to be at the hospital at 11am for 12:30 surgery. I guess there were a couple of emergencies and I didn't go to surgery until after 6. My poor wife was a mess and broke down and told me she didn't want me to have it done. Then the nurse told her it took about an hour and I was in the OR for three hours. How she kept it together through that wait I don't know. All is good now and it is just a minor bump in the highway to a new and better life.

I know how it feels I wanted to jump out of that hospital bed and say screw the surgery lol it took them so long to get me in. lol hope you have a speedy recovery.

So..... nobody gets sleeved tomorrow?? Look out on the 29th though, there's a bunch of us on that day:

peppercma

daviso

AutumnBlueCarmen

phardin

carolina girl

xplorurself

I hope everyone is ready. I know I am! I have tried not to dwell on it too much, but I haven't slept for a couple of nights now. This is so typical of me, I get stressed and instead of falling over from exhaustion, I can't seem to close my eyes!

Blessings to all of my sleeve sisters and brother!

good luck carolina girl and to everyone getting sleeved hope everything goes well will keep you all in my prayers!

I think one of the reasons you can't breathe after surgery is you are laying flat and all the gas is pushing against your chest. I told the nurse a gorilla was sitting on my chest... They kept me on oxygen for a bit after surgery. The first time I got up they didn't put it back on. I asked about it and they asked me if I felt like I needed it. I told them no I was just fine so they took it away.

We'll see! I have stalled off at 9 pounds of weight loss but have one more week of full liquids. I am thinking once I can eat some real food and have some energy that it will start moving again. So, not exactly on the other side yet! :)

I was sleeved July 25th.

Decided to copy the June sleevers! Someone mentioned that we should have a master list of everyone who was sleeved in July just like the June sleevers. I will gladly take this on :) Please let me know if you need to be added to the list, removed from the list, or if your date is wrong. I will update as often as possible. I just gathered dates from posts in the July forum

This should make it easier to follow up with each other, compare progress, complain together, Celebrate together... all that good stuff :) For some reason, it would not let me update the original post to add any more people? It's very strange, so here is an updated list of all our July Firecrackers. Wooooohooooo!!! smile.gif Please let me know if I need to add anyone or change any dates.

      I have been waiting over a month to get into the nutritionist. I have an appointment, but I would love any advice on what to do diet-wise to lose weight before surgery. Like most of you, I have also struggled with my weight and have successfully yo-yo dieted myself into the above 300lb range. I feel like eating in a calorie deficit at my weight, it should come off, but it hasn't been and I have been tracking my food too.  Thank you

        Howdy MindyG81 how are you today?

        Hi, Mindy G, I am new here too, my surgery will not be until July or August, but I could use a friend. I see yours is coming up soon. Are you doing the liquid diet before surgery? How's it going?

        I would take any advice on what to do for weight loss before the surgery, I have my first nutritionist appointment on Feb 9th (the soonest I could get in). But I was 12 lbs heavier than what my doctor submitted as my weight to my insurance, so I have to lose that plus at least 10 more pounds and I am struggling.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good
