Hello Everyone!

I was revised from lapband to sleeve on 1/25, so today I am one week out. I have lost 5 lbs since the day of surgery. I know everyone is different, but I feel like it's a very low amount. Especially because I lost those 5lbs. within the first 4 days. I dont see anymore coming off before my 2 week post op appt on Friday. (That's would be 5lbs. for the first 2 weeks)

Anyone lose a small amount their first 2 weeks...

I am 27 yrs old. 5,5" and currently 210lbs

Thanks :)

You might want to try the lap band forums as this particular forum is for those who had lap band and then had a revision to gastric sleeve.

I had my sleeve on the 25th too! I am down about 10 lbs., but I figure a lot of that is Water weight...

I went from band to sleeve and when I came home from surgery had a gain due to all the iv fluids. I'm 13 days post op and finally seeing a loss of 3 pounds from my preop weight

One week out and down 5lbs. Most people are still up pounds from the IV Water weight. Seems like your ahead. Follow your plan and try not to obsess on the scale. Easier said than done I know. Be prepared for the dreaded 4 week stall. You might as well set your mind on that now. Follow your plan the weight will come off!
