Any Bay Area California Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

Thanks CNTWT2BMINIME. Yes I teach cake decorating so I could just leave my students hanging.

I would have stressed out so much. But this way I can have them finish out the class and start a new one then give them 1 to 2 weeks off. Dr. said that since I work 2 hours and I could sit I might be able to go back after 1 week. But I'm not going to push it. I wanna take my time healing the right way.

Good thinking....

I had mine done at Good Sam too on August 1st and Dr. Nguyen was my surgeon. He has a wonderful bedside manner and the staff at good Sam were great. It will go by really quick, I was really nervous the day of the surgery but everything went as planned and I'm 2 months post op and down a total of 107 lbs. and 53 lbs. is since my surgery. Just stay on point with your liquid diet, I know it's hard I had to do 3 weeks. Take it slow after the surgery and be careful with the morphine, that's what had me sick not my sleeve.

Good luck and keep us updated

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
