My surgery date is finally nearing. Less that a week away. I'm so very nervous and excited at the same time. Location is Carmel, Indiana. Anyone else same time or location that might want to be buddies?

I had mine done May 5 too. How is your recovery going?

I'm feeling pretty good. The first five days were very tough. I'm getting tired of eating the same bland things every day. I've lost 20 pounds. Which is great. But nothing in the last five days. I'm addicted to the scale I think.

How are you doing?

I've done the same thing! I lost 18 pounds and now 5 days of nothing! Reading that it's expected is somewhat comforting but I really was enjoying seeing the scale go down each day.

I am new to the forum and just had the sleeve done on May 24th, so 4 days ago. I had the liquid diet for one week and lost 9.4 Pounds. After the surgery I had gained back all but 1.4 pounds putting me back at 238 pounds. 4 Days out and I am still not back at my starting weight. Could you please let me know when you started losing weight after the surgery, how many days did it take to see the numbers go down? I am doing exactly what they told me to do but am already getting discouraged that I might be one of the 25% that doesn't succeed. Thanks for your help!

From what I was told we are retaining Water from the IV and still swollen. I'm not sweating the scale. Just focused on healing and learning.
I'm five days out. Don't freak out give yourself time to heal. It'll happen.
Btw where'd that statistic of 25% don't succeed come from? I've never seen that.

That is what my surgeon told me. He said 25% of the people that get the surgery will fail and gain all their weight back. Thanks for your reply it is much appreciated. Since you are 5 days out, have you lost any weight yet?
