Having had my week checkup today, I promise it will work. Just make sure that you follow your Doc's plan. Anytime I'm faced with a decision that may stray from the plan, I remind myself of why it's not worth straying. Good luck, hope it goes great.

Hi everyone,

I had my endoscopic sleeve procedure done at Weill Cornell (NY Presbyterian Hospital) on Monday. So it has been only 48 hours. Everything went quite smoothly. I did not have any nausea. I went for an Upper GI X-ray and follow up blood work the next morning. I then flew home a few hours later (New York to Pittsburgh). The only discomforts am having are a very sore throat and tight chest. These are due to the tubes they insert during the procedure.

I am not hungry at all and am currently trying to find some drinks that taste good to me. My mouth is extremely dry.

Since this is my 3rd day - I am going to start with some Butternut Squash creamy Soup. Also - excited to say that I have already lost 5.5 pounds.

Day 5: feel back to normal. Dry throat and tight chest are gone. Not hungry at all. Like the taste of ensure lite and puréed soup. Lost 9 pounds so far
