Post Op September Sleevers, Roll Call



Recommended Posts

Anyone else having issues with slumping? Like I have to have good posture almost all the time or it hurts? Because if I slump it feels like it smushes my sleeve and it feels sore after a minute.

I know it's weird, I was just wondering.

I'm the opposite if I stretch out like lay flat in bed or sit straight up Im uncomfortable. Feels like I'm pulling my sleeve especially after eating.

Well today started week 4 so this morning was my 3 week weigh in and.... I gained 0.2 lbs! Was really hoping to not run into the dreaded 3rd week stall but with 15 lbs in the first 2 weeks I'm still happy. Anyone else stall?

That's way too much pain!! Time to call your surgeon. Personally, I can take Prilosec (or equivalent) twice/day and 2 Pepcid AC as needed. I am not having a hard time, though. Definitely, you should not be feeling this bad. Make the call!

As for extended meds, I have no restrictions.

Thanks! I am feeling better today. I am really keeping track of my Protein and Fluid intake. Slept a long time last night and maybe that is what I needed. Still shaky but until I get rehydrated I think this is to be somewhat expected. I have officially given up on the Pepcid AC and am now trying Prilosec. Still having some burning today but nothing as bad as it has been.

I ran into a stall at 3 weeks & it lasted 2 weeks but I dropped 2 pant sizes & the dreaded stall finally lifted this past week end & I've dropped 2 more pounds.

That is awesome on dropping 2 pant sizes! WTG! As I am putting away my laundry today I had to laugh at some of my underwear. Wow! Can you say "granny panties"! LOL! I cannot WAIT to throw those suckers in the trash! My kids are out of school today and so my oldest is cleaning out my closet for me. She loves organizing stuff. Can't wait to get rid of lots of old 22/24 and 2x/3x clothes.

I had surgery on September 5th an I feel great. The surgery was way easier than I imagined. Recovery was fine. It would have been horrible if I didn't have a private room in the hospital though. The people in double rooms looked miserable!

Anyway, I feel great. I've lost 25 pounds which is more than I thought I would lose right off since I am on the smaller range of weight.

I do get a bit bored with my stage three food though. I'm a vegetarian and not being able to get my veggies is NO fun!

Southcoastliving- congrats on your 25 lbs. I was sleeved on 9/4. Sounds like we're averaging around the same weight loss. I'm not a vegetarian but have decided to try and incorporate veggie burgers into my diet. I was a vegetarian about 20 years ago but wasn't getting enough nutrients so my Dr told me I needed to eat chicken, fish & turkey. I still try to stay away from red meat if at all possible. Keep me updated in your WLS journey.

It's nice to read everyone is doing good.

Okay I'm getting frustrated here. Ladies I must be the slowest loser ever. I'm a little over 3 weeks out and lost 15 lbs. Then I gained one lbs and lost it... So confusing.. ugh!

I haven't measured myself. I probably should.

My surgery was on the 13th. But what I dont get is why I'm gaining 1 lb then losing it then stall... Oh how I hate it!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
