What percent of stomach was taken?



Recommended Posts

I was told they were going to remove 80 to 85% of my stomach, but I'm sure it was just a guesstimate. Once the doc gets in there he used a bogie as a guide for sizing and stapling, so I'm sure he never really took an accurate measurement of my starting stomach size. So it could have been more or less than 85%.

Same here, about 80-85%.

I was told my doc does a 90% sleeve.

I could never get an answer from my Dr or the PA. Their standard answer is, "it's about the size of a banana"...as they point to a plastic sleeved stomach hanging on a metal stand. Grrrrrr.

That's all I was told too, that it's about the size of a banana. In the end, does the exact portion removed really matter?

At this point it's neither here nor there. But, a lot of posters can say exactly what percentage was removed, or left behind..some can even tell you the bougie size. Just wish I knew. I've been hungry since early out. I think some that are never hungry must have a tiny tight tummy and I don't think mine is, to that extreme.

I can tell you bougie size but have no idea what % that translates to

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
