Killian's Gastric Sleeve Journey



Recommended Posts

I'm so happy now that I'm like 5 weeks out and I get it now... like jersey jules said in a video and I realized the eating like a fat slob days are over with. There's no way to pile food in like how we did to get overweight. It's a amazing tool I feel very lucky to have.

Update 11/11/17: Happy Veteran's Day to me. :-)
We had a birthday party for one of my daughter's friends at our house.
This is what was out and I had NONE of it. The sleeve prevented me from even craving the junk food!

11/13/17..Phase change from all liquid to puree. Yuck. Gross. How the hell am I gonna get through this? Puree is just...yuck.
Luckily, I can have scrambled egg beaters, yogurt and smoothies. So gonna start making smoothies with my Ninja bullet and get through this stage.
The good news is I am down another 5.5 pounds and weigh 229.9. Yeah I know- 230..but 229 sounds better. :-)

Grilled chicken in a bag. I used Kirkwood. Was so light on my sleeve and it's very moist. Put that in the food processor. Weigh it out and add hummus or ricotta cheese... that was key for me on pureed foods. And eggs. Experiment.

Mashed avocado if you’re allowed. Twinge of lemon juice in it. It was actually pretty good.

Update: 12/1/17: Weight: 220.. down from 260 for a total of 40 pounds lost. Thanksgiving was...interesting. I ate some turkey and stuffing and mash potatoes, but what was different was I ate very little of it and felt full much quicker. I feel as if I didn't miss out on anything. I had a tiny sliver of pie and could not even finish it.

Update: 12/13/17 Weight..219

I had my final post op follow up yesterday and was cleared to eat meats and "regular" food. But I think I'll stick to the fish, and puddings and jellos, and keep the steaks to a minimum. Doc said everything looked great and I am right on track. The next challenge is Christmas and New Year's Eve parties!

Dr. Kwon is very mild mannered, matter of fact kind of guy. He is awesome and my surgery went very well.

Update: 3/13/19 wow it has been over a year since I posted??

I weighed myself this morning and it was 198. I finally made it to ONDERLAND!! ok, barely made it, but I'll take it.

Had a bit of a set back. I gained weight over this past holiday season, but dusted off the books my Nut gave me and went right back to eating well and have lost the 17 pounds I gained. My last post surgery doc revealed that my sleeve grew by 50% and that is my fault. I am drinking and eating too fast. Gotta get to work on that.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
