Yay to my new sleeve buddy!!! How are feeling about it? I'm a total mix of emotions...happy, excited, nervous and anxious as hell. Lol. Does your doc require preop diet? What was your start weight, current weight and what's your goal weight? So excited to have an October 9th sleeve buddy!!! ;-)

  • its always nice to know your not going in alone!
  • I am super excited about it, not nervous at all, but i was never really the person to be neverous about anything.
  • My starting weight at the beginning of this journey was 334. I am currently 325ish, my doctor says i can lose all the way up to the weight of 175lbs but i'm really concerned about losing that much weight. i would like to keep it around 190-200, and work on getting the body fat percentage down as low as possible.
  • I'm not really sure what to expect regarding the post op, a lot of people on here have had a lot of different experiences so its hard for me to mentally prepare for what is coming.
  • What about you? how are you feeling about this whole process? is everyone supporting you at home? how is your better half taking it?
  • PS sorry for the bullet points, not sure what i did to get them or how to get rid of them. *smh*

Sigma,

I'm super anxious, nervous and excited! I think my biggest concern is the pain after surgery lol. I don't really listen to what others say there pain has been, because everyone is different. My high weight was 270, start weight 250, and current weight 233. My goal weight for doctors is 173, my personal goal weight is 160-165. My height is 5`7, yes a shorty lol. It's been an amazing experience so far and I've faced many challenges and realize there will be many more to come, but it will be well worth it. My family is not supportive, but my friends are. My friends have pretty much been my shoulder to cry on when I needed lol. But I'm doing it for me, so I can look and feel good about being me and not be on all these medicines for high blood pressure, cholesterol and the stupid CPAP machine. From the start the hardest thing for me was actually drinking a Protein Shake lol. I just couldn't find the right one. Then at Sam's Club I discovered one called Premier Protein, chocolate, love it! Have you had your Endoscopy yet? Had mine two days ago and still have a sore throat:/. Well, hope to hear from you soon! Btw, real name is Kyle ;)

Ok, so Monday is the big day for me. I am to arrive at Albany Medical Center in Albany, NY at 5:45am. I'm seriously beyond anxious, excited and now very nervous. I'm so looking forward to a new amazing future, but the whole surgery part is finally hitting me. My program only requires a 24 hour clear, sugar free liquid diet, which I have now officially started. Tomorrow my friend will be coming over and she will be sleeping over and we will do final pictures and official inches of the soon to be old me. I look forward to this new life more then words can describe, but nerves are shot. Will keep everyone post.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
