I'm 8 days post op and down 9.5# from surgery morning. If I really concentrate on it and watch the clock throughout the day, I can get in 64 oz of fluids and about 45g of Protein. I started full liquids yesterday and am able to do 1/4-1/3 c. of creamy Soup or cream of wheat, but then I'm full. Feeling really good, though!

Congrats Soonerorlater.

I was sleeved on November 18th, I had to return to the hospital due to a stricture, couldn't keep Water down without vomiting, now I'm home and on Protein shakes still (yuck) can't wait until the soft diet next week. I return to work on Monday, and as of today I am down 29 pounds since the preop diet.

hey girl! I'm with you in the weight loss. I've lost 16 lbs and it seems to keep going up and down the same 4-5 lbs. getting soooo frustrated! I'm sorry we are in the same boat but I'm glad I'm not the only one. Especially when you see how much others have lost in the first month. But I guess it's too late to turn back now!

I was sleeved on nov.14, I felt like I got hit by a bus after surgery but now I'm feeling pretty good. I am.down 26lbs and am praying I reach my goals with this surgery. Biggest surprise is how little I can eat, they told me what it would be like but I didn't believe it.

I was sleeved on the 18th and so far nothing but hard time. I can't get any liquids down. Called doctor yesterday cause I was starting to get nauseous and feeling faint. He prescribed me something for nausea but all it did was knock me out the entire afternoon. I cried yesterday telling my husband I don't want to live anymore I regret doing this to myself. I miss being able to chug Water down. Seems everyone is recovering great why am I having such a hard time.

Sleeved on the 25th, only in hospital one night. Incision pain was as expected, thank god for modern chemistry.

I manage to get my waster in over the day, but it's a painful. It's been tough to get all the Protein down, but I am getting close.

I tried a little Tomato Soup today and it tasted great only a couple of ounces but it was so good.

I gained weight in the hospital 8 lbs, I guess just from the fluids from the IV.

I am now back to my pre op weight after 3 days at home.

Start Wt 427

Pre Op. 383. (3 Months on supervised diet & 2 weeks liquid.

Future ???

Sleeved 11/6, one night at the hospital. The pain was about what I expected. I felt rough the first few days, but fine after that first week.

I sip Water (with Crystal Lite) all day and stay well hydrated. It's tedious, but reality with this procedure. I guess I better get used to it.

I just can't eat much at all and I'm never hungry (feels so weird). But, by eating really slow, I'm able to get near 60g Protein a day. I'm told it'll get easier to get food in down the road.

Im the opposite I feel hungry probably more than before surgery.

I have had times of regret too. So dont think your alone! Even though I can eat n drink fine, I still have doubts and regrets. Maybe your one of the people whos bodies take a bit longer to heal. Just try n keep ur head up through the hard times. I wish u the best!

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂

        Your progress with weight loss is awesome and so is your garden! I think you should've became a horticulturist. We've really gotten into gardening this year and it's darn good exercise. Keep up the good work and I'll keep watching. :D
