Lol this sounds like me. My boyfriend told me that he's going to take my phone away because I found a new boyfriend... VST. All I think about.

Ha that's funny! I don't talk about it much even with my husband. If he was able to go with me I think he'd be more interested in the topic, but for now, he seems a bit irritated about having to stay home with our 4 kids while I'm on "vacation". Don't know how much of a vacation it will be!

Best wishes to u!!! I keep wondering how everyone has dates I have no date yet !! My mind is exactly were yours is with clots leaks and protein!!! I keep looking for the worse case scenario just to be prepared for the worse things possible. One lady said said she wrote letters to her kids just incase. I am working on the same cause that's how scared I am but I dunno

I thought about taking my adult son (18 year old) with me but he's still in HS and I don't want him to miss. Plus, I guess if I want anyone to go with me it'd be my husband. But I do worry about something happening as well. I mean, it is surgery. But like you, I'm just trying to keep positive about things...and wishing my surgery date would hurry up!

Liz,

I got your invite for the group but I'm not sure if I actually joined the group?!? Sorry, but I'm using my phone app and it doesn't show me as part of the group. Am I doing something wrong?

I'm following this thread-- but is that the same thing??? As you can see I'm new to this forum thing;-/.

Thanks in advance!!

Is it just me or does it seem like there are not that many February sleever's? I am so scared/ excited for the day to come. My wife gets sleeved in the 16th of January and me on the 6th of February. I was told by the dock that he wants me to lose some weight before the surgery so that he can scope it better. I am so trying to get a start on a diet to loose some. Good luck everyone! Love this site and look forward to seeing how we all do!!!!

The group thing is tricky on the phone app...I think you have to go into the main forum page and look under "vsg by month" or something like that. I'm not positive that that's how it works, I still haven't gotten the hang of it! Lol

It would appear that there is a forum password I have to create...I'm not too certain about all of that just yet. I will figure it out today if possible.

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
