Yep! From Frankfort. Who did your surgery?

There is a group on this forum called "Sleeved in the Bluegrass". Unfortunately, it's not very active.

Had no idea there was another one, ha. I am from Elizabethtown but I traveled to Lexington because I heard nothing but good things from that group. I got sleeved at Saint Joseph East- Center for Weightloss. How long have you been Post-Op?

I was sleeved in March 2012. Reached goal around New Years. Had no complications, never hit a stall. I went to Dr. Weiss of Bluegrass Bariatrics.

Wow no stall, that is awesome! How much weight did you end up losing altogether. I have lost 16lbs so far in the past 8 days and had my surgery on Monday. Since I got

Home on Tuesday I have lost 10 though, must of had a lot of Water built up. I would like to reach my goal by May 2014 which would be 119 more pounds. I am currently 259.

I was sleeved feb 5 in bowling green ky. My dr is with bluegrass bariatrics as well. Dr nwanguma. I am very pleased so far and am so excited to be starting this new chapter in my life! I feel very blessed for the opportunity. My high weight was 254 245 pre op and 228 at my one week check up! I'm so proud! My only complaint is I am having trouble getting comfortable enough to sleep well at night.

Are you having to sleep propped up? I noticed I can only sleep for about 5 hours at a time now and end up being wide awake. I can sleep on my side as long as I am not having issues with heartburn.

Yes propped up. I start in bed and end up in recliner. Im a side sleeper and still too tender to sleep on side. Laying on my back is giving me back pain. It is a little better. I suppose it just takes time. I am taking 6 weeks off work so it's not that big of an issue right now.

      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.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
