Any April Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

@@jessica.lee91 i had sleeve gastrectomy one week ago and I will tell you the only way I got through it was by not thinking too much about it.... I didn't do a lot of research or talk to a lot of people about it bc I knew it would just give me anxiety... The person I DID talk to was my surgeon... he was able to answer all my questions and put me at ease.... Read my posts I have given some tips and details from my experience so far that may help you.... Best of luck and I'm sure you will be just fine just follow the rules your surgeon gives you and be HAPPY that you are on your way to a healthy lifestyle :)

I'm doing good, starting to have some mixed emotions.

When I start to doubt my decision I look to all the success stories & B/A pictures.

Pre-Op diet hasn't been too awful bad. 2 Protein shakes, 1 sensible meal with SF Snacks. Monday start all liquid.

How about yourself ❓

I am 2 weeks pre op & getting nervous. Also, got a great offer for a new job that would start 2 weeks after my surgery. Starting to wonder if I should postpone the surgery.

Surgery is April 18 in Mexico with Dr. Kelly. I am soooo excited now that I'm on day 3 of my pre-op. I actually started a pre pre-op a few weeks ago, and have lost about 6 lbs. I read every post on this thread and wish everyone well in their individual journey.

I had my sleeve on Wed, April 1 and have been progressing very well (knock on wood). I think this has been a combination of good luck, a good surgeon and following the instructions to the "T".

My liquid diet started 10 days prior, the first 5 of which were miserable. The lack of calories is really a shock to your system. But by about the 6th day in, I began to get used to it.

The surgery went fine. A lot of waiting around and paperwork. Right before the procedure, I was given some "happy juice" and wheeled into the O.R. where the whole team was assembled. I recall transferring to the operating table and an oxygen mask going on and then...out!!! The next thing I recalled was waking up in the recovery area.

Not sure of the pain medicine I was given, but I was in very little pain. After a few hours there waiting for a hospital bed to open up, I was encouraged to walk (with assistance from the nurse) to the men's room to try to urinate. And it felt OK walking.

Once up to the room I was hooked to to wheeled IV / heart monitor and also encouraged to take laps around the floor. The was to release aim of the gas from the surgery. I took laps almost every 2 hrs through the night. I had some gas pain but not too much.

Since getting home, I have been following my liquid diet again, as instructed. Moving to Soups tomorrow!!! I have been also walking the neighborhood for at least 45 minutes each day.

I still have some random gas pains but manageable. I will keep following the diet as my stomach is in the healing process.

Hi. I'm also scheduled for the 20th. I can't wait. I begin my pre-op liquid diet this Monday, 4/6. I'm nervous but excited.

Surgery In 5 days. The first 4 days of the pre-op diet were rough and like others on this forum I'm having problems sleeping but I have so much energy! Is anyone experiencing that too? It's awesome to have all this energy even without caffeine.

The pre op has been ok, been on 3 shakes and a cup of veggies for 12 days now. The first few days were hard but after that I have been fine. I am travelling for the surgery so about to leave today, and it's all seeming very real. I wish you all the best and good luck for the big day. Look forward to hearing about your experience.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
