What does ur ob doc have u doing. Im five months out and 8 weeks and have an ultrasound tomorrow. Would love to compare notes with someone in my boat.

I love my doc. She said same as the other person's i'm high risk cause of the surgery but with the sleeve very few complications happen. She said i will have a few more ultrasounds than normal to make sure baby is growing and if baby is on track then no worries if baby is small i have to try to up calories. I also had to have blood work and they tested everything one could imagine to make sure my Vitamin levels r on track. I also take extra folic acid cause thats the one ur body has trouble absorbing now. Otherwise she said as long as ur out of the drastic weight lose phase that i will be healthier this pregnancy and don't worry cause baby will take from u first.

I have PCOS and this is the reason why my husband and I decided the surgery was the best way to go. My doc pretty much said my body needed a rude awakening and this drastic measure would help me achieve my dream! I've been married for 10 years and we are EXTREMELY excited about the many possibilities in the future.. I just recently had my surgery so I haven't been to meet with my doctor.. I kinda don't want to take BC because I have had many bad experiences with them (mainly weight gain) and I also don't know how long to wait for it.. Aaahhh... the many possibilities!! I see the light!!

I have PCOS and that is the main reason for my surgery. My insulin resistance is very bad and has caused many problems. I was diagnosed about 7 years ago and have tried a gagillion things with no avail. My husband and I want to start a family and I was told this is my best option. My surgeon said it will drastically improve my insulin resistance, weight and in turn fertility.

I am happy that so many of you have had baby success. I have read that PCOS makes losing weight slower even with VSG, had this been the case with any of you?

My surgery is set for sept 16.

That was one of my reasons as well. However, your fertility will return with force. I'm pregnant now and just like previous writers. One month unprotected gave me baby number 3. No medical intervention no fertility drugs. Just the plain old fashion way lol. Good luck, and I hope you getas much Success as I did. Just over a month after Surgery my period return, and for the first time in my life I had 28 day cycles.

does pcos cause wt gain I have pcos too. :unsure:

Actually PCOS is a symptom of having too much weight on board. Fat (adipose) causes increased levels of androgens (male sex hormone) to be circulating on our systems. That's what makes it difficult to get pregnant. Women with PCOS don't ovulate as regularly, so it's hard to time sex with ovulation because it happens so infrequently. When we lose weight, often our periods become regular again and ovulation more regular, making it easier to get pregnant! There is also a component of insulin resistance with PCOS that can inhibit ovulation. That's why trying a medication like Metformin can be helpful. All in all, weight loss is good and can cure PCOS! Hope this helps!

(Don't forget there are exceptions to every rule. I know some who aren't overweight that have PCOS. It more common as stated above however)

We were not trying and i was only five months out from surgery when i found out i was about three weeks pregnant. I had lost 60 lbs at that point. I know it not the best answer but when your ready for that baby let go and have fun. It can happen quick. They say 5-10% makes pcos better. Good luck

Side note we were trying not to get pregnant and due to past difficulties getting pregnant figured we would start six months before we wanted to be pregnant thinking it would take that long but surprise we slipped up once and it was that easy.

Really hope it's this easy for us. We tried for 9 years before we adopted.

My last one we had to do the whole clomid thing and it was so hard. And being heavy we have had a total of five years of unprotected sex with no babies amd weight loss was what i needed. Hope it is easy for u and ur hubby. Good luck and hopefully there is a baby in ur not to distant future

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      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
