August Sleevers-How are you doing??



Recommended Posts

Hey August 2017 sleevers ... how are you all doing? Today is anniversary + 3 weeks (I was sleeved on Aug 22, 2017) and today was a HUGE milestone: I reached normal BMI. I've officially lost 102.8 pounds with a BMI of 24.8. I'm so frickin' excited I can't stand it!

I was sleeved the same day as you a year later 8-7-18, I have lost 25lbs so far, I feel I am at a stall. I feel the same, a little depressed, I know I did this for the right reasons and I am hoping when progress starts and I see it and feel it I will be more happy with the decision.

Congratulations!!! I can only dream of hitting a normal BMI! I still have 4-6 kg (10ish pounds) to go! That is such an amazing milestone! You must celebrate!!!

I had sleeve on Nov 6th I've lost around 120lbs so far but I had to have foot surgery and I can't even get up off the couch for the last 4 weeks. It will be awhile before I can start waking again and my weight loss had stopped completely. I'm so worried that it won't start again. I still need to lose another 50 lbs at least before I reach my goals. I've also noticed more Hunger pains lately. I sure hope I don't go back to my old eating habits... I'm so stressed out and worried... 😓

I had my switch done on 7Aug18 and I must admit I feel 100% better at this point other than extreme fatigue here and there I’m 5 weeks out and 40 lbs down I know I need to increase my Proteins intake I really don’t eat much at all once a day maybe other than that pristine shakes and crystal light and Water I have tried salmon and that was fine and I have tried a few other things cooked for me but that desire to eat is not there. I do struggle with moderate diarrhea with burning but not sure if that is something all goes through when I called the med assistant said it’s normal but never said for how long and how long will my gas be wet gas. But over all I am good I go back in about a month in a half to get hernia repaired then I’ll be done with all surgery

      Going through a lot of personal issues...came to visit my mom to try and figure out what I need to do. I'm really experiencing that head hunger I keep hearing about. In my lowest moments I feel most hungry. My stomach hurts like I'm starving. Trying to get in and see a therapist ASAP. Just really struggling to keep it all together. It's really weird to feel like this and not have food...I feel lost. SOunds so ridiculous. Sorry to be a downer, just been a hell of a day. 😕

      Today I decided  along with grilled salmon I would eat yogurt. Not mixed together but bite for bite. Things are getting weird at Chateau GreenTealael

      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)

      Scheduled 11/05/2018 for the second time to get a gastric sleeve. woke up from surgery with the nurses telling me. They were unable to do surgery .unable to introduce Laparoscopy when it needed to be. had to abort it. Too dangerous for me. I was so Very Depressed. I'm doing better with the depression. I must believe My Doctor Aborted surgery to Protect me .But I wanted this surgery so bad. Well I'm suppose to see him on 11/16/18 to discuss alternative methods. Hopefully I can Reschedule it for the third time

      5 days Post op Update:
      Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!
