December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

I was ecstatic when I was told I wouldn't need the preop and crushed when I was told I did afterall. It has been the BEST thing. I would not have believed how much more prepared I feel for this lifestyle change.

Holy moly did I have a bad night last night. I was doing GREAT...still so excited about my surgery which is tomorrow, and all of a sudden, it was like the floor fell out from below me, and I started getting extreme nausea and heart was racing, and I couldn't sleep (got about 2 hours). I got my surgery time today and spoke with the nurse who called, who recommended I call my primary for an anti-anxiety medication - she had no problem calling in a script for me...but sheesh, I had no idea that would happen. This time tomorrow I should be all done...with some extra anti-anxiety meds :)

MnWin YOU WILL DO GREAT!!!!! I know that this is a huge change for you and it'll be a process, but you got this!!!!! Tomorrow your going to be a new person on your way to a new life! This is going to be PHENOMENAL!!! And you have all of us DECEMBER 2013 sleevers on your side.

I'm with you, I'll probably be making this same post about nerves and anxiety on Sunday! But we just have to say, "We can do this, God is on our side and he will bring us through this!" Take a long bath, relax, try to rest, it'll be just fine!!

Thank you all for your encouragement and support. I honestly just don't know why this happened all of a sudden, but I am prepared now with the tiniest little pills I have ever seen.

This is the best motivational speech ever! I think it should be copied and pasted every day on the new surgeries list! lol

My nerves are waaay up!!!!!

Did the sleep study last night and the sleep doc found nothing wrong -- no sleep apnea. Just like I thought

Still waiting for my primary doc who is conveniently out of town to clear me -- most likely the other doc in her office will clear me ASAP

One day liquid fast starts tomorrow (oy!!)and VSG scheduled for Thursday dec 12

Yikes!!!!! Aaaahhhh!!! I know a new and better quality of life awaits me

Feeling like I may need an anti anxiety pill but I'm trying to stay strong --- avoiding negativity from family and online commentary on the subject of WLS and trying my best to stay positive

I am 4 days post-op and feeling pretty good. Minimal pain, getting up and walking a lot. Im very bloated and gasey. I should have started a stool softener but did not because it wasn't ordered. However, i am using gas-x which helps to an extent. Weighed myself yesterday, bad idea. Im up 11 pounds since surgery :( but ill keep trucking along

Ok guys I need your help.

Since today my file was submitted to the insurance, I thought it will be a good time for me to tell my job.

Well my boss was so worried and I felt bad. I don't want to tell him I'm having the sleeve but I want to tell him a procedure that won't me look like I'm dying or Something lol

      I'm going in for a sleeve revision October 4th. It worked well for me, and I am not back to my starting weight. However, a revision is strongly encouraged at this time (there are additional medical issues). I have decided to forgo the insurance process, even though I know I would eventually be approved. "Eventually" is the key issue here. I have a small window to create this to where it will not impact my work or home life as much, and waiting for the insurance approval would take over a year.

      I just read @BoredCW's status post and also want to lament the loss of my butt.  Looking at me the side, my back is basically flat from my neck to my knees.  My jeans have lovely fabric folds draping from my backside from lack of filling.
      Two days ago, I was sitting on a worn couch at the gym and I could feel the springs and count how many I was sitting on.  Told the Kid and she said she wants to find her childhood alphabet fridge magnets in the basement to spell out words and have me sit on them and do some "butt-braille-reading" 😂

        HI-LAR-ious! I love your kid!!!

        Yeah, we all suffer from noassatall syndrome. :(

        Yes. I think the spandex in jeans is the only thing that helps keep the sag below the pockets form looking ridiculous. Even leggings wrinkle there.

        Ah, our disappearing collective butts.

        I am seriously considering changing my plastics plan. I am booked for an arm lift in December, but my summer obsession with arm exercises has improved the look of them quite a bit to the point that I think I may hate my butt more than my arms. Should I do a butt lift instead?!?! In conjunction with?!?!?

        I am trying to cultivate an obsession with butt exercises but its not working so far...

      4. 2Bsmaller18

        I don't think you could do both at the same time. For me personally it's arms. I have granny wrinkles down to my elbows. I can always dover my body with tshirts, pants, etc but unless I wear long sleeves my arms are an issue. I also can't wear a small enough jacket since it fits everywhere but too tight in the arms. They measure around 13.5 inches. Can you compromise and get the smaller arm lift. I don't know if that saves much $ or recovery but if your arms improved that much maybe just a tweek will work?

      On the 3 week plateau from hell.. It seems like an endless desert with sand dunes that represent the 1-2 pounds gain then dropped from day to day. Met with my weight loss group tonight and was told its normal. That this is sometimes like a step, plateau then drop, plateau then drop. Only for the plateau's to go on longer the farther away from the surgery date I get. Much like EDM, I can't wait for the drop. 
      On top of it all, I lost my ass. Seriously.. its gone. All that cushion that I enjoyed lounging on eating what ever I ate, watching what ever was on the computer or tv... is gone. That glorious support system is vamoosed. I know this because my ass (tailbone) hurts all the time. I'm sitting on bone now and its sore. I am my own literal Pain in the Ass! (My family would say whats new, but who cares about them.. my butt hurts.) I have yet to bring a pillow with me everywhere I go to sit on, but I'm getting ready to as I sit for my job working on computers. So far losing the weight is a Pain. I hope it gets better.

        Hang in there, the plateau will end eventually. Also I feel you on the butt thing.

        I have a butt pillow. I'm not proud. :D

        The plateaus suck!!!! Keep the faith and motor on!

      In a bit of a stall right now.   267-269 lbs the past week.   Almost wrote that as "367-369".   
      Still 158 lbs. lighter than my heaviest.

      I am 7 weeks post op (GVS) so far I've lost 24 lbs since surgery. but for the last 2 weeks I have been at a STALL (i've lost no weight but still loosing inches).   My dietitian states I'm doing everything correct and to continue.  Anyone have experience with stalls if so how long does it last?
