December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

Tomorrow is my big day I have to be there at 5:00am. I haven't been nervous I think because I've been concentrating on finishing my Christmas shopping lol. Right now I just felt a little scared because of what could go wrong and after. I think it's normal. I'm excited for the after part though =).

Hi I'm Jennifer. I was sleeved on the 17th and and am back at home, still not 100% but feeling better by minute by minute. I was sleeved at Fraedtert Hospital in Milwaukee by Dr. Wallace, who was amazing by the way. My main issue right now is that I am having trouble getting all of my liquids in. I feel like I was sipping all day and only got it about 32 ounces, if not less. How is everyone else doing with their liquid intake? I'm also having more pain than I anticipated at my incision sites but they're not red or swollen or hot or anything so I'm thinking all is well. I'm kind of a wimp when it comes to pain anyway!

I was sleeved the 17th. I had the worst nausea ever. Stayed an extra day trying to control it. It was and still is rather rough. Glad to be home though.

hello. I am new to this group, but I am very interested in learning from everyone. I had my gastric sleeve on 12/2/13. I know that it's going to be the best thing I'll ever do for myself. I am struggling getting in all of my Protein and I am beyond exhausted everyday. I went back to work on 12/16. Has anyone else experienced this? I would take all the advice I can get. Thank you in advance.

Welcome! I wake up energized, take my Vitamins, Water, and get on treadmill, today did 1.75 miles - did some more water, then showered. Hubby and I headed out to get gift card shopping done, stopped and got a Decaf at McDonald's and it was free today! Then made two mire stopped and I was done! Came home and drank my Unjury chicken broth w protein, then crashed for nearly three hours!

I have taken at least a three hour nap all week! I hope I can get past that soon!!!

I was sleeved on 12/16 and since I have been home I have been feeling very tired with no energy. Today I took some liquid B12 and I have so much energy today. And the B12 strawberry flavored liquid that I had tasted pretty good

Strawberry sounds great, mine is mixed berry and I think I would have preferred yours! I'm with you on the energy level! Naps everyday!

Hi All: I like MnWin am having a terrible time getting the liquids in. After following the plan for liquids for only one hour I feel like my stomach will burst from pressure. Been trying gas x strips. Due to the nausea I had day 2 and 3 I won't take any pain meds stronger than liquid tylenol. Is there anyone else out there that encountered this at the first and saw it get better? I very discouraged and teary because I feel so much pressure in my stomach. At this point if I could undo this surgery I would in a second.

My prayers to you cabs! Hope you can get this under control soon did you call your dr?

For those of you with low energy; I was told by my doctors office it was because of inadequate Protein. The B 12 helps as well.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
