I go on the 13th. I'm not able to do much walking now (bad knees and hip) so 6 miles in 2 days seems difficult to me. But I'm glad you were able to do that. So cool.

I know about bad knees. I walk with a walker now because I'm afraid I'm going to fall down. I know my weight is affecting that. I'm hoping that this journey will help with that and a few other issues along the way.

November 14th! So nervous. Been trying to stick to one meal a day and it has been tough.




Yeah I'm on the same plan I guess. I'm on lean/greena and there seem to be several options for Protein but although I really like most green veggies there doesn't seem to be as many choices for that. I also don't like being told to "eat your veggies" :)

Now that I'm almost 5 days out my energy level has dialed back a bit. I didn't realize how much the pain meds in hospital made a difference. I'm not taking the oxy they prescribed me but a Tylenol now and then is helpful. I'm walking about 2 miles a day and that's in half mile increments at a time. Pretty much eat a meal (aka drink a shake) then go for a half mile loop.

Yeah that's the main reason I'm having surgery. Yes it will feel nice to be smaller and not stared at and all the other benefits but my joints are the big reason.

Hi everyone! I just got my sleeve on Nov. 2nd. The first day was really hard but 72 hours post op I am feeling much better. I am struggling to get 64 ounces of fluids. They are having me take 1 oz every fifteen minutes. Have any of you tried to take more than 1 oz at a time? I did 3 onces and felt fine but I don't want to push it. Also, my doctor just had me on clear liquids for 48 hours and now I am on Protein Shakes which I am tolerating well.

My surgery was Nov 1 and I can drink about 2-3 ounces in a couple minutes and then wait 10-15 minutes and drink another 2-3 ounces. Liquid moves through me fast. However, with that said, I tend to forget to take drinks so I sometimes go 2-3 hours without taking a drink. I was averaging about 40 ounces a day (shakes, Water, broth combined) but I think yesterday I got up to 64 ozs because my husband was home reminding me to sip sip sip all day.

Jeez those pain meds in hospital are amazing. They prescribed me Oxy as well but I picked up sugar free liquid Tylenol and if I can help it, that's all I'm taking. They told me that energy would be low. We are on very low calories so body is dialing it back so we "survive". I've heard that after a week or so, energy levels will pick up and I guess the more Protein we get in, the better for healing and energy. good luck!!!

Haha, I hear you. I am going to try just liquids starting tomorrow because I’m worried about my liver being too large. I am only taking a week off from work and hope I’m able to function. If I need to take more time, I can though. Thank goodness for these boards, reading everything helps a lot.

      Well, I am still on schedule for a December 26th surgery, but no longer sleeve, but instead bypass. Here is a link to my latest YouTube video explaining why the change:

      Still stuck at a 50# weight-loss after three years. Starting to think the rest is never going to come off. I have decided to see a bariatric doctor, where I currently live, since I have moved away from the one that did my original surgery. Also starting to wonder what weight-loss percentage is considered a failure for this surgery. I don't want to be one of the unsuccessful stories, but I'm becoming very discouraged. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I lost the weight I did, but why won't the rest GO?!

      I have been very busy lately and my arm has finally stopped hurting, still no lifting, but my weight loss started up again so i am back to trying to find the right calorie number to hold in place. Its weird to think this way now and i am having a harder time increasing my calorie intake than i thought i would. It feels wrong to tell myself to eat more. So many years of yo-yo dieting messing with me right now. The Mental game just never ends.

        Wow, your arm hurt a long time. Glad it finally resolved. Hope you can get back to your weight training soon, I know you enjoyed that.

      2. allwet

        yea i had/have a pinched nerve at the top of the elbow and it is a very slow thing to recover from. The arm is weaker than before but feeling much better when i use it.

        every time i thought it was better i would start some form of training and it would go numb again all along the tricep. so its very light exercises and treadmill :(

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        Is there anything they can do to "un-pinch" it?

      4. allwet

        stretches and never putting pressure on back of arm, like you do if you use the bicep or tricep curl machines. Surgery is a last resort but doc says i need to try everything else first.

        The loss of so much fat around the nerve bundle allowed it to move around more.

      5. Orchids&Dragons

        That stinks. Sorry. One of those d@mn unintended consequences.
