Post Op September Sleevers, Roll Call



Recommended Posts

I'll be going into surgery this Monday 9-23-13. I am both excited and extremely nervous. I'm worried that I'll get super ill from the anesthesia. I will have a patch on so hopefully that will help. I keep reading all this literature.

Well look forward to connecting w/ all of you.

Soo i had my one year with the surgeon. He wants me to aim for 150 and not 170 since he says most people will regain 10percent back over time so it gives me a little wiggle room. Also asked him about my jiggly tummy and he said to work on my core and it would tighten up alot as i dont have alot of skin like i thought just alot of jiggle haha. He also said that i should wait another year and by then anything i want done would be cosmetic...i was thinking a year anyways so i guess ill need to start working on my core and see if that helps. Over all he didnt complain that i wasnt at goal but did mention that the losing period is over so going forward its all on me.

Sigh so 20 lbs turned into 30 or 40 lbs left to lose. Blah. Oh well just gotta look at the bright side that i have lost almost 90 lbs!!!

So glad you posted this because it gives me things to think about. I haven't had my one year check up and probably will not go.

Today is my one year surgi-versary! Down 122 pounds and trying to maintain at 135. (Even though I would secretly like to see 129 on the scale just once!) at my 1 year post op appointment I was told I've lost 98% of my excess weight. I'll take that!
