Perth Sleevies?



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

My partner is the only one that knows I am going through with surgery. I'm happy with this as it's my business and my family can be judgmental and will say this is unnecessary/ extreme when I should just 'lose weight on my own'.

I've been looking on the forums for a while, so I thought I'd make an account as I have questions and things I want to talk about.

I am due to be sleeved in Perth in late October this year. I am currently sitting around the high 90kgs mark and am looking to lose 30kgs.

Anyone else out there like me? [emoji4]

Yes, I haven't told anyone else. I'm keeping it as a private matter. I'm 109kgs, my highest ever. I start my pre-op appointments in August, surgery date not set yet.

Pre-op in Perth, Western Australia 🇦🇺

My surgery date is set for Oct 10 but will be confirmed on Sept 18 when I attend my appointment with the surgeon. I asked for a date because I'd like to give some (informal) notice at uni.

I’m really similar to you with a smaller Bmi. I have been as high as 125 but now in the 90s. I’m hoping this finally fixes things for me. Good luck to you in your weight loss [emoji846]

How are the Perth sleevies going ? I'm 4 weeks post sleeve and feeling great ! constipation has been an issue but putting benefibre in foods and trying to keep up my Protein requirements . I've lost 12kg since the 1st September .




That's such great news! [emoji1305]

My surgery is in 12 days and I've been so nervous. Had my Dietician consult today and I start my pre op diet on Saturday (last meal will be Friday night and then goodbye to Vietnamese for a while!)

My concern has been constipation for sure too, Dietician said a stool softener is the way to go and I'll be using that for sure. 12kg is a great feat! Well done [emoji1319]

Oh that's how I'm feeling - wanting this to be the thing that ties it all together and stops the yo-yoing.

When are you booked in for? Mines pretty soon (pre-op diet starts this weekend) all happening so fast!! [emoji33]

Good luck to you too! [emoji1303]

Hi all I had surgery 7 weeks ago with dr couch who recommended a restrictor be used This limits your intake to half a cup for the rest of your life, the rest of your life was not mentioned at the time ! I don’t think there was enough information and talk about what this would mean. I’m coping but have some serious depression issues these last 2 weeks. Will have to get out of this mind set. Cooking was a great joy to me and for the moment I have lost the joy bugger!! Has anyone on this forum had the restrictor inserted at surgery I& so I would really like to know how your going and maybe some advice. I have lost 20 kg with another 20 to go.

I'm in Perth and had my VSG performed on 17th October - by Prof Hamdorff at Hollywood Hospital. Recovery has been amazing and no complications. I was back at work after 2 weeks and cleared to start exercising again at 3 weeks (seeing a PT twice a week and working out on my own for another 2-3 days a week). I've just come out of a 2+ week stall with no weightloss, but hovering at about 11kgs down so far. Yesterday marked 6 weeks out and it's flown!

How are you doing now?

Oh wow that sounds fantastic! 🤩

So glad your recovery went well. Things were a bit hit and miss for me but I’m glad I kept pushing on. I had issues with medications, water intake then pace once I was on the food plan after liquid phase...I had a lot of vomiting but I’m getting better now! [emoji846] My Dietician has me lots of helpful tips and advice.

I’m over the one month (5weeks) post op mark and down 12kg and now focusing on my protein intake and upping exercise! Looking forward to the next 17-18kg coming off and toning up (feeling a tad wobbling haha).

All the specialists I’ve seen have been really great. I also started seeing a Psych a few months before o started my journey and that combined with the physical improvements... I’m feeling good!

Time is flying past! Not long until I look back and I’m a year post op! [emoji33][emoji847]

Thanks! Sorry to hear you've had some troubles but good to hear you seem to be on an easier track now. Makes a big difference having a great support team, so keep up with your specialist appointments and I'm sure you continue to do great. Massive weightloss for you already! well done! I'm only just sitting at 13kgs down now at 8 weeks post op.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
