December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

I had my surgery on 12/2. I'm feeling great other than this drain tube. I get it removed Tuesday morning, can't wait! Still struggling to get the Water and Protein in, but not stressing over it yet.

If you haven't joined and would like to do so, jump on over: http://www.bariatricpal.com/topic/288367-december-2013-sleever-pounds-lost-log/

So glad I found this thread. Thank you so much original poster for starting it. I am approved and getting ready for my Dec 17 surgery date and not feeling nervous yet. I see by reading some of everyone's posts that the closer you get to your date the more you start thinking about and It makes sense that we will. I will be catching up by reading the first to last post up to this time and reading each day every new post. Everyone who has got to the other side keep the determination you had before your surgery. Never tire but if you do fall off the horse quickly try to get back on it. To those who are vrry close to your surgery dates I pray that all goes well and in sync. Bless all in our new chance for weightloss and lifestyle changes

Welcome to the club. I feel the same way as you. I'm so glad to have found this forum and to know that we all in the same boat and working for the same goal. It has been such a blessing to have support and advice from this crew. I'm nervous and worried about the day of surgery but but excited to get to the other side. God bless us all on this journey to a healthy, active life.

I wonder why some doctors use drains with WLS and others do not. I will ask my surgeon on Thursday when I go for my first post-op appointment. Truly curious about that one.

MnWin,

Thank You for the quik reply I will definitely join the thread for weightloss countdown after my surgery . I am ordering a few things online that my Bariatric education class listed for us to have before our date. I just don't like shopping when my nerves might be bad right before my surgery date. Also Christmas shoppers can be rude so I want to avoid that. I have been Christmas shopping online for 10 years so thats what I'll be doing this year too. I have read others Intro's and noticed that they gave more about theirself so I will add to mine that I am a woman who is 59 years young, my height is 5'3.5" and starting weight was 221lbs, I am Type 2 Diabetic on Insulin and have mild sleep Apnea, plus HBP...I started my pre-op journey on May 3 and finished my 6 month Medical Supervised Diet on Nov 7. My Bariatric Team sent in my test results and results of the supervised diet on Nov25 and the next day my Insurance approved it. So Dec 17 is my approved Surgery date. This will be a lifetime dream come true to be at a healthy weight! Glad to be here with all of the others who feel as I do.

Kind Regards to all

Laura

I won't have a drain. I didn't ask why some do or don't, though.

It is great to have so much info. I was able to ask about things I had read on here in my last preop class.

Hello, I'm Angela 39 yrs old cw 524, highest weight 580 in 2011, I have my last appt for my 6 mth supervised diet on 9/23. Because I weigh 524, my doctor wants me to get under 500lbs. My starting weight when I decided on wls was 565, I have lost 42 lbs since June 18th. after my last appt for the 6th month diet doctor is substituting to insurance and planning on surgery early December. Already had psycho eval and working on getting under 500lbs.

Angela, I am so proud of you for not accepting being morbidly obese. I cannot imagine being twice my size but I do know how you must feel because being overweight is treated so indifferent by this generation who live healthy lifestyles. Like me you decided you were going to do something about your weight. I know how hard it was to decide to do it the way you did. My prayer is that you will acheive your wildest dream come true weightloss wise. I am going to bat for you. May you also be surrounded by enormous support in every stage of this venture till you get to your healtiest goal weight. Bless you Angela

May All your dreams come true for you

Is anyone drinking the Isopure clear drinks? I got some last night because they were on sale. They have 40 grams of Protein so I got a few. If you are, which flavors did you like?

The grape is my fav. If you put them on ice they taste much better

I was sleeved on 12/3; each day gets better but still having lots of pain on my right incision. Taking pain meds every 4 hours. Anyone else having this pain? thank goodness ive never had any gas pains or issues there lol

Well, I made it!! It's been 6 days since I was sleeved and I'm doing fairly well. Still nauseous a good bit of the time. I threw up the first morning home (blech) but mostly kept things down. The Protein shot they told us to take seemed to be the culprit so I'm steering away from those now! Otherwise fairly good.

Thank you all for all your thoughts and prayers! Mine are with all those that already been sleeved and those upcoming!
