Weight Gained Since Having Gastric Sleeve Surgery



Recommended Posts

HI Y'all,

I wanted to do some research with REAL people instead of reading about it in some report.

I'm wondering how much weight (IF ANY) you have gained since being sleeved. I go up between 1-3 lbs. so my answer would be 1-5 lbs.

I'm curious to see how this goes.

Thanks!

May you could add an option for none as most people do not gain weight. I have gained none. It does fluctuate 2 pounds close to the mentrual period as normal but it goes away in a couple of days. :D

I think the poll would have the most value if you knew how long people had been sleeved and what amount of weight has been gained in each of those time frames. Also, maybe incorporate age and gender and eliminate those who have been sleeved less than a certain length of time (6 months or maybe a year).

Actually, the more I think about it, the more I think of other ways to modify the poll, so never mind. LOL

OK so you would fall under the 1-5 lbs. I understand you normally lose it, but I'm really just interested in the MOST weight gain sleevers have had.

Thanks sweets!

Hahahahahaha! I agree there are MANY MANY MANY Ways to modify the poll, but I really just want to know exactly what I asked. How much weight gained (IF ANY)?

So far I haven't had a single gain so could not answer. I am early out though....

My weight see-saws all over the place. I never seem to gain more than 3 pounds from my lowest before dropping below that again on my downward direction...(so far) I weight daily...and am at 8 months.

I was 2 years post op at the end of April. I go up and down 5 lbs depending on if I am going out to a lot of social gatherings where there are Desserts that i can't resist. Sweets are my downfall. I keep them out of the house.

For the most part, it's easy to stay at goal.

I'm always going up and down a few pounds. I would find it odd that anyone would *never* fluctuate. Especially a woman... :blink:

I too have fluctuated a bit, usually up to about 4lb. When I did my ticker I was @ 3lb to goal, I am now at 7lb to goal :( I just need to remember that when I hit a stall I float around a 4lb range before finally starting to drop again.

Got my one year follow up appt next week (a couple of weeks early) and was hoping to be at goal by then, but it's not going to happen :(

Taken Friday and Monday off work so I can hit the gym every day of the long weekend to try and help it along a bit!

I am only three months out and I weigh myself every single day. There are times when I weigh in about 3-4 pounds more than the day before. But then one random day I loose it all plus a bit more. I have very irregular periods and I notice that when I am spotting or about to get it my weight fluctuates even more. For me, I think the unsteady numbers have to do with my hormone imbalance.

      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

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
