December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

Okay, I'm worried. I found out today that my surgeon removed approx 60% of my stomach while I had thought it would be 85%. I'm so worried that it isn't going to be enough and I have will be right back to my HW later on. I don't have anyone to share those thoughts with who would remotely understand so I just needed to share it with yall. It's really bothering me. Thanks for everything

What size bougie did your surgeon use? That's the biggest gauge of how much restriction you will have

Great to find so many others with December surgeries! I had my sleeve surgery on 12/3/13 and I am working on my journey. I am 55, 5'6" tall and started at 243lbs. I lost 15lbs on the liquid diet before the surgery and 15lbs in the 4 weeks since surgery. I am happy with the decision and happy with the sleeve, but after reading some of the posts here, I am disappointed I have not lost more weight.

I would love to know how to get the graphic at the bottom of posts that show my progress. How do I create that?

Welcome to the group mooncat!

You are doing great! Please don't compare yourself to others, we are all so different! We have different physical stats,food and exercise programs, some had preop and some didn't. Plus our bodies are just different. However, we have all been given the same tool. Fast or slow, as ling as its moving in the right direction! Mine hasn't been moving at all! I'm definitely stalled but it has to move at some point!

To get a ticker (the thing at the bottom) I think you have to be on a desktop and then you click up on your profile up on the top right and hit my tickets. It will walk you through how to create one.

Happy new years everybody! Pray that everyone is doing fabulous as well as recovering from surgery. I am still in the hospital what my doctor told me was to expect three nights either way. They will repeat the barium swallow test today so please pray for the success of that,then they can take off all these plugs and Patches and monitors. As of right now I have not had any of the esophageal spasms thank God! So hopefully the swelling has gone down and I can start the 2 wk postop liq. I would love to say yuck I'm so sick of liquids but its been 2 days now and I haven't had liquids of any kind just a wet swab for my mouth but no swallowing, again I pray that everyone had a great surgery and is recovering well. Im especially praying for our Dec group for that this year will be the best you ever ever had. Im ready to start seeing some before and after pics! Yall have a good day and thanks for your prayers. I've appreciated them::)

KaminaBlue, I was sleeved on 12/11 as well. I was on clear liquid 10 days, full liquid 7 days and now pureed food. I have (since the last time I weighed) lost 19 lbs total from pre-op Protein through Saturday. I have not felt compelled to "cheat". I have Protein Drinks that I can drink that are chocolate, or vanilla and I will put in sugar free pudding for a flavor I want. I find I am more up for apple sauce and puddings from my last stage rather than pureed food. How about cottage cheese? What kind of carbs are you craving. I made a root veg roast and mashed it...

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
