December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

Good to know from someone who literally feels my pain!

Had my gallbladder removed last year (which will be sort of similar to the sleeve) and that was BAD. Also, had a tiny pimple sized basal cell carcinoma removed from my upper chest. It took 2 vials to numb it up. I had so much in me, I was shaking all over! Then that tiny thing hurt for weeks.

Nonetheless, looking forward to suffering through for this surgery!!

Thanks for the imput.

That reminds me of the dentist. It takes a lot to numb up my mouth. I dread going in that place. Well, here's to hoping they don't over or under do it! lol

Tentatively set for Dec 30 :) have cleared all testing but an upper gi which is soon. 38yr old 5'1 260lbs

I too was always thin - at 12 weeks pregnant with my first child I was a mere 112lbs - I ended up gaining 68lbs. Lost most of it and 4 yrs later had my 2nd child gained a lot again didn't lose much after and 16 months later had my last child - the excess weight NEVER came off. I have contemplated WLS for years and finally just said "I'm doing it"

I actually should have had it back in October but my mom had such a hard time with it that I postponed it - i can happily say I now have her support and look forward to my surgery!!!

Can friends see that I've joined the group? I haven't decided if I want to tell people about getting surgery.

No they can't! The great thing about secret groups is no one can see your activity. They can't see that you joined or posted or anything!

I haven't told many people either (my family outside of my home) and they are on Facebook too.

AtlantaRed - I have tentatively scheduled for Dec. 3rd pending my approval (which I should know very soon). But, the surgeon said I could go ahead and pick a date so I chose that one.....the day after my birthday!

Happy Halloween :)...more importantly to me, today is the day of my bariatric review board meeting. Everything gets submitted to insurance tomorrow. All preop appointments are scheduled. Fingers crossed and wish me luck!

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

        So proud of you Cat. Getting into those smaller size clothes is half the fun isn't it?. Keep up the good work!!!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
