No didn't have any issues with the procedure. Had no excruciating pain. The only bit of pain I did have was at one of the incision sites where the stomach was pulled out from. No shoulder pain following the gas either, which was rather surprising...had more pain from this following gallbladder op.

The nurses were even surprised at how well I was. I stayed for 2 nights. First night was a very restless sleep as I couldn't get comfortable and second night I asked for sleeping tablets but they wore off, plus had a bit of a side effect with them...had a hallucination, which I read can happen. I thought there was another tremor in Geelong as it felt as though the bed was shaking.

I'm a few years late to this conversation, but thought I would post anyway and see if anyone else from Geelong is lurking!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Think I am hitting a stall-ish period. Weight loss is def slowing and I need a kickstart to get it going again....any suggestions?

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
