Hello, I live near Cape Girardeau, Mo. I had my sleeve done at DePaul hospital off St Charles Rock road March 5, 2014. My surgeon is Dr. morales. I highly rec. him. My surgery has been so much better than I expected. I have had no nausea at all. Pain has been minimal. Tomorrow is my 1 wk check up. I'm looking forward to being able to add more foods. broth, Jello, and Protein Shakes are really getting old. I've lost 20 lbs counting the week before surgery. I am surprised that I am hungry a lot of people I read are not. But some post that they also were the first week after. I'm so glad I chose to do this and would do it again in a second!!!

lovinglife28....I had my surgery on Jan 14, 2014, so I'm still pretty new at this. Weight is coming off, slow but still losing and better than I have ever done on my own. I'm not loving my sleeve yet, but I'm sure that will come more in time. Right now I'm still trying to recover and learn how to eat with my sleeve. It's a learning process, but I have faith that it will do like it's supposed to as long as I follow the plan. I see that your planning on having surgery soon. Best of luck to you.

My sleeve was done 1/4/14 down 40# at week 11. From sz.18 to 14 my goal is size 10 bmi 22.0 i live in eldon Mo.

I'm with Dr Morales on Tuesday. Right now I'm kind of dying to eat something real! I can't even watch anyone else eat.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
