December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

So not sure if its the anxiety, Clear Liquids, or both (probably) but I am an anxious mess. Have thrown up already and can't seem to get any sleep past three days. Tomorrow can't get here fast enough.

Good luck to everyone having surgery tomorrow! I'm getting sleeved on Thursday, and I'm already having mood swings! Ugh, I'm a mess!

Something the nurse told me at the pre-op visit… she said that women should not shave their legs or underarms the day before or day of surgery because the razor causes tiny cuts to the skin which can make you more susceptible to infection. I don't know if this applies to men shaving their face, but it would seem that it would. That was a surprise!

I was told the same thing... and last year my hubby didn't shave that morning

3 days post op and started shakes again. I hate them, all flavors, and don't know how I am going to get through the next 2 weeks.

How are you doing with that? I am having surgery on Tuesday and I am really not all that fond of them now on the pre-op diet so I am a bit nervous about next week. So far the best have been GNC's total lean - the one's that are already prepared although they are kind of pricey. A friend who went through this said to not get to attached cause what she liked before was different than after, so keep trying!

I wanted to check in with everyone, but I don't want to bring down the thread. I will just say I am 12 days out and have been unsuccessful at keeping anything down other than clear liquids. Someone up thread asked if anyone is having regrets and I will wave my hand big time. I won't drag you all down with all of the details but if you want to read what is going on with me I have a thread in post-op called "in need of support" if you are interested in reading the specifics.I don't want my negative experience to influence the choices you all have already made and worked so hard for. However, I will continue to support you all and cheer for each of your victories!

well, I had my surgery and have been home for 3 days. I am on Tylenol with codine and this helps a lot with the ouch pains. my stomache hurts more so in the area where the drainage was put in. by the way, when the doc pulled it out, no pain so don't worry. getting up in the hospital was rough and ask for a pillow and put it on your stomache as you get up off the bed. the first time I took a sip of Water and got that heartattack feeling was a wow!!!! no pain but really weird. so you learn your own way of sipping your stuff. hope this helps someone...and by the way..i packed a bag and never used it...good luck all, jamalyn

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
