Gastric sleeve surgery



Recommended Posts

I had my surgery December 17th.. and since then I have lost 19 pounds. 6 pounds pre op and 13 pounds post op. It has not been too bad, but a MAJOR lifestyle change. I cannot wait until I get over the pain of the surgery so I can feel somewhat normal. I go back to the doctor January 8th and a pray to God that my Vitamin levels are ok. I have been getting all my supliments down but the Protein is sooo hard. I am sooo glad I had the surgery. I am.so ready to become healthy and stay that way!

Congratulations! Recovery can be pretty hard - but you'll probably wake up one day and feel perfectly normal :)

I got my breakdown out of the way last week :). Fortunately, water isn't a problem for me. I was having some issues and got scanned for a leak yesterday and no leak :). But back to Clear Liquids and skim milk for 2 more weeks. Hungry! And pain in the largest incision. Other than that - doing good. I completely understand how you feel - but the worst is behind us! We should stay in touch :) PM me and I'll give my email if you want.

Hi both, I also had surgery on 17th! Looks like you're both doing well, I've lost 18lbs now but only 3lbs post op. Was hoping for a bit more but can see a massive difference in the mirror so am happy with that.

I've not had a melt down yet but everyday is a learning curve and I also find it hard to get Water down!

Good luck!

@@surrey1987 thank you so much and congrats to you! How is your pain from the surgery? I was starting to feel somewhat normal then the pains started again but I started my cycle so I am wondering if that has something to do with it! Not anything too bad!

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
