over 400 lbs starting weight?



Recommended Posts

I'm in Cali my highest weight was 525 Dr consult 442 current weight is 432 ... My Dr has not said that I need to lose anything the hospital has no weight limit ... This thread makes me nervous I hope I don't get to Dr consult before surgery which is the 14th and he says lose more weight.. I'm doing everything I can to lose another 20 lbs before the 23rd. Surgery is scheduled for 7:30 am already in the books... Can he change it?

not said that I need to lose anything - hospital has no weight limit .

@@coleenrenee

your surgeon had all your info

height, weight, age, etc

hospital says no weight limit

doc says you have been approved :)

"sounds" like you should be good to go

many people try (or have to) loose weight prior to surgery

the more you loose now

the less you have to loose PO

makes silly sense of course :)

loosing 5-10 lbs or more would be great :)

surgery easier for doc (safer for you) since your liver has shrunk a bit

there is a board on here for weight loss with specific amounts to loose

50+ lbs

100 lbs

200 lbs too

find the "200 lb" board

your question might be answered by people around your weight

best of luck on your journey :)

speedy recovery

Just an encouraging word... I was 529 when I started my pre-op and 504 the day of surgery. I'm two years out and just about -200lbs now. You got some great input from ProudGrammy. Good luck!

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
