August sleevers progress



Recommended Posts

Oh my! I'm glad that you found out and I hope that you pass it soon! And hopefully less painful!

Ended up having surgery today they removed it. No longer in pain. It was by far the worst pain I've ever felt on my life. The woman next to me was there for bypass complications but has had kidney stones thee times before... Said child birth was better... I tried laughing when she told me but I was in too much pain...

I'm just glad it's over.

Uhhhh let's see....

Starting Weight (Jan 2013) 322

Pre op weigh in: 310

Day of surgery: 300

Current: 282

I lost a majority in the first 6 days post op, I've stayed within the same 2-3# over the last 2 weeks and it's making me absolutely crazy. Frustrating to say the least.

I was having the same problem. I lost 24 pounds the first week after surgery then had a three week stall. Two days ago I started losing again finally. Hang in there it will end soon!

33 y/o female

5'1"

HW: 235

Surgery date: 223

Current (9/17): 210

I had a difficult hiatal hernia repair, which has been my biggest challenge. My esophagus feels tight when trying to advance to solid foods. Still feeling tired, but averaging 50gms of Protein a day and 400-500 cal/day. I am having lots of sliming- totally didn't expect that! Mostly I'm just embarrassed to spit into napkins in public. Lots of gas and I saw on another thread that someone had used the phrase "urinarting"! LOL! That about sums it up! Overall, very happy that I had the sleeve!

Oh my goodness, I'm glad it's over for you thankfully I have not had gas anything like it was before this week over the last couple days and I hope it remains that way! Wishing you a speedy recovery!!

Hey everyone! Sleeved on 8/15 and have been doing really well. However, the past 3 days I feel like I have hit a brick wall. Headaches, weak, fatigued, etc. I'm working out pretty hard so maybe I'm just overdoing it? Anyone else had a rough week 5 and/or 6?

Thanks!

I'm at week five and I'm starting to get the headaches and dizzy and tired all the time.I take my B12 twice a day now and my surgeon said either back off some of the exercise or eat more calories. I can't eat any more so I'm working out an hour a day now. I'm starting to feel better :)

I thought I had gas too and it ended up being a clot between my stomach and liver. If the pain doesn't stop' date=' please see your surgeon! A CT scan quickly found my clot.

What did they do about the clot?

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
