Any NH sleevers out there?



Recommended Posts

Hi All!

I'm getting sleeved on Monday and would love to have a buddy. My stats: 33 yrs old, 5'6, HW: 255 CW: 227. I'm nervous about everything except the surgery itself! Thanks :)

Well I'm not from NH but I'll be going through the surgery on the 25th...so we are going to be pretty close with the journey! Totally up for being a buddy if you're interested. Could explore the new sleeve world together lol

That is pretty close! I just had my last appointment with the bariatric nurse today and she went through all the specifics of the surgery. Have you had to do a lot of prep?

Well so far they kind of just threw me into my liquid diet alone. Next Monday I go to a pre-op bariatric class so I'm guessing that is to prepare me for surgery and really speak further in depth on what to expect before, during and immediately after. I also see my surgeon one last time on Monday as well. It's been a bit of a whirlwind to be honest. How are you doing with your pre-op liquid diet? How did your appt go?

I haven't been on a pre-op diet which I think is really weird. The only instructions I've been given is Clear Liquids the day before surgery and nothing after midnight. My appointment went really well! The bariatric nurse went through everything in detail, she was really funny and reassuring. I definitely agree, it's a whirlwind! How's your liquid diet going? I've never been on one but that'll be my reality next week!

Well I think it all depends on your BMI about what kind of diet they put you on before. The liquid diet is to essentially shrink the liver so you must weigh less and maybe not have a fatty liver. You're lucky haha actually the pre-opt has been great. I have been blending my Protein Shakes up to give them a little froth making them a tad more filling and that has been my life saver...oh and a couple sugar free popsicles to break up the monotony.

Best wishes for a excellent sleeve journey! I am originally from NH but, live in San Francisco now. You are probably having surgery right now and I am sending positive thoughts. I get sleeved tomorrow!

Take care.

      Had my gastric sleeve surgury on 12/28. I have lost about 15 pounds since surgery but have hit a stall. It is soooo frustrating! Any advice is greatly appreciated

        Just be patient. It sounds like a pat answer, but it is literally the only thing you can do to crush the dreaded 3 week stall!

        We have the same surgery day and the same problem. I’ve lost about 20, then stopped. I’m hardly eating anything, logging everything, getting my water and proteins. I don’t know what’s wrong. It’s so frustrating.

        Nothing is wrong. Be patient. Eat well. Exercise. Don't panic:)

        I'm in the same boat, i was sleeved 12/29 and lost 15 lbs since surgery, and the scale hasn't moved for me in 3 or 4 days. Its frustrating.

      I'm doing so well on the new plant-based way of eating! It's been 1 month since my final diet visit, where I found out I had gained about four pounds since my previous visit in November. That meant I had only lost 3 pounds overall from March-December 2017. Ugh, sad trombone. However, in the last 3 weeks of eating a plant-based diet I've lost 13 pounds from my December visit weight! And that includes Christmas and a vacation! So definitely not a "perfect" month by any means. I'm really hoping this way of eating will support my goal of reaching and maintaining 100% of excess weight lost.

        Hey whatever works! I've had a few friends go plant-based and drop a lot of weight naturally.

        Thanks for the support! That's awesome to hear.

      I had my consult last Friday and do not have my first "series" of appointments until 2/2. 
      I'd love to have some direction until that date regarding an eating plan ect.

        Were you given any paperwork at the consult that showed what your diet plan would be like after surgery?
