January 2014 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

Well I am 6 days out and doing fine after surgery. So very blessed to be a sleeved sista and be on the road to healthy new me!! My surgery was just 1 1/2 hours the hardest part was I was the 2nd to last patient and no drinking Water for over 16 hours was hard. I was in the hospital for two days beleive me that 4am visit from the pain can be a doosy I found out the hard way that sleeping through more then 4 hours means you wake up in pain which is no fun. All the sugestions on what to take really helped too especially the extension cord and my little hot pad!! A must for any one who wants to heal quickly!!

I was sleeved on Monday, surgery went well. Arrived at hospital at 8am was on surgery by 11:30, was in room by 2:30pm.woke up with a NG tube down my nose (my MD does as a protocol to prevent vomiting) also had a drain.Was NPO until 24 hours. On Tuesday morning was given leak test with horrible tasting bleu dye. (abt 5 oz) it took my 2 hours to drink, but no leaks. Then they gave me a 20oz water bottle with crystal lite. That took me 6 hours to drink. MD d/c me around 6pm and I was able to sleep only own bed last night. So far no nausea or vomiting...incisions & tummy muscles very sore. (Hard to get in/out of bed). But all in all things are going well. My new schedule includes walking and sipping.

Help! Struggling with 2 week preop liquid diet. My surgery is 1/29 and I am struggling bad on this liquid diet. I know this is mind over matter but at this point my mind is just a little weak. Is there anyone who has gone through this struggle? Can someone please give me some tips on how to beat this? I do want to be successful with my sleeve. But if I am struggling now, does this predetermine my strength after my sleeve?

Hello we have the same surgery date. I am also struggling. I was at the point to where I wanted to eat a meal. Then I had to stop and think. This feeling is temporally. I am counting down the days and praying for strength. It is tough but this is the beginning of our journey and I know we will pull though with the help from the Good Lord. I have to keep myself busy all day to keep my mind off of food. Good luck to you.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
