cool , that's what I am getting. I am glad you got to come home the same day. I wonder why they are making me stay so long.

Well. I don't have any major health issues. And my surgeon is one of the best here in the Northwest. Dr. srikanth. So I can assume it all depends on the doctors and your health history. But I was surprised too cause I was assuming I'd stay at least one night. But I did all the test and passed exceedingly like the breathing test and cough test and Ofcourse a slew of other test s. So I got to heal at home. Which was best.

My dr wants me to have SIPS . Can you shed some light on your experience? I can't find anything on this online.

I am so happy I decided to have this surgery! No regrets at all. You will have foul smelling poop and gas, however, that's just the small part. I was a size 24 now down to a 12. I am 11 months out.

Thank you! Are you getting the Sips done? I am sooo happy I did this. And my family and friends notice how much more energy I have now than before. You won't regret it.

Actually losili, I was wrecking my brain deciding which surgery I should have done. Due to 250 cm (which isn't as bad as 100cm) rerouting of the intestines, I chickened out and decided to stay on the safe side without the intestine bit . I don't know honestly . Was even thinking of changing it last min . I've got my sugery booked for the 29th with Ian Michelle

29th July so I have time but they don't do Sadi in Melbourne . I found one doc who does it in Queensland (dr free) and he seems to be a younger surgeon than the others

Well if your just getting the sleeve. I'm pretty sure you'll get satisfactory results. As I've seen other successes on here and my co-worker actually got the sleeve and lost 120lbs and have kept it off for 3 years now. You can't possiby overeat as it will make you feel sick, dizzy, or you'll just vomit. But you don't want to do that all the time since you can stretch your pouch and gain weight.

I find that I have more will power to resist eating junk food. But, I think because I'm not as hungry I'm better able to handle it. Before surgery if I wanted fast food junk food I had no will power what so ever and I just ate what I wanted. But, I think you'll do well. Just be positive.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
