I lost 30 of it on my pre-surgery diet. So more like 9 months lol .

But 140 in the past 7 months.

My surgery was February 19th. Did get a small leak and then needed to have my esophagus dilated. So things have not been easy for sure. I AM 7 MONTHS FRON MY SURGERY AND TODAY I HIT TOTAL LOSS OF 125lbs. I think that is great considering I am 54 years old. Even though I have spent many days at hospitals and doctors I would do it all again.

I have lost 130+ down from 360. It hasnt been fun. I get a lot of pain when I eat. The kind you get when you eat too much or too fast, but for me I get it no matter how slow or little I eat. To survive, I find that I eat too many Snacks and crap. I just cant get in a good meal that satisfies me. Very frustrated.

To Susansoon - how did you know you had a leak or needed your throat dilated? What were your symptoms. I wonder if something is wrong with me?

Also, my hair is thinning a lot. And my hair is muuch wavier than before. Strange....

Richard, tell you dr. They will scope you to see if you have a stricture. Hope you find relief.

Ok, I'm 7 months post up, down 62 lbs. Lately I have noticed the overwhelming stomach gurgles. It's almost embarrassing because my stomach gurgles while I am eating. Any idea why this is happening and how I can contain it.

I get that sometimes too. It sounds almost like Water going down the drain! LOL! I just giggle and say excuse me if it's really loud. But I don't know what causes it.

WOW! So happy for you! I'm sure you and baby will be just fine. Can you get extra nutrition in liquid form by drinking Boost or Ensure?

Congratulations, what joyous news. I can't wait to hear all about your little. Babies are definitely a blessing and not always on our timing. I have no doubt you are going to rock this pregnancy the same way you've rocked the sleeve. Congrats again.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
