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 had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
