November sleevers here



Recommended Posts

Yup you are a November sleever LOL What a difference around the world with the "diet" and even all over the USA. I will be on liquids ONLY for 3.5 weeks. Then I will be on puree foods for 3 weeks, then soft foods for 3-4 weeks and then start small meals. So your puree potatoe and cottage cheese that you ate after a week, I cannot have for 3.5 weeks. Though I will like the full liquid diet so much better than this clear liquid diet. At least full liquid has Protein drinks which fill you up. Course I have not been sleeved yet. Two days. Thanks for sharing your story. I think all of us "pending" are curious and even nervous about what to expect. Everyone's experience is so different. Continued good luck to you!!!

Question...for those that have had the surgery already and those that are close. Does your surgeon put a Scopolamine patch behind your ear before surgery? My dr does. I've used these before for air and sea sickness. I wonder if he does it because of the nausea?

Yes. My doctor put one on while they were prepping me for surgery and I was allowed to remove it after 48 hours with strict disposal and hand wash instructions.

Well.... Not right away. I threw up twice in the recovery room. But, I had no nausea after that.

I know right! But at least there was no nausea after I left the recovery room.

Sleeved on Nov. 1.

Recovery room was rough and I threw up a couple times. After that I was wheeled to a room and slept for several more hours. All total I slept 12 hours post op. People kept talking to me but I was so out of it. I don't remember my husband kissing me and going home for the night.

I finally woke up at 9pm and drank some chicken broth and walked 2 miles in laps around my ward. Sipped Water. Then I konked back out.

I was up every 45 minutes going pee all night long.

Woke up the next day (today) and felt great. Walked over 4 miles throughout the day waiting for hubby to pick me up at 5p. The staff was calling me marathoner. I inspired other patients to get up and walk with me.

I had a small cup of yogurt and some tomatoes Soup and a premier chocolate shake throughout the day.

Good luck to all three other November sleevers.

Wow . That’s amazing . Glad you seem to be doing so well . I hope to feel this way after . My surgery is 11/10 - 4 more days . Did they give you that Protein Shake at the hospital or did you pack your preference?

They provided me the meals that I was allowed. I did have to add a packet of Splenda to that yogurt because it was plain and gross and I poured the shake over ice to thin it a little. For lunch I got a bowl of Tomato Soup. [emoji106]

      12/12I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week well five days ago so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy

      The sad dejected truth that you are not the same size in a plush padded vs. Lacy unlined bra. And should have known it. Sigh.

        Guess the new bra/panty set was a bust?

        I see what you did there!

        Also, boobs are dumb. I'm pretty sure I'll be tucking mine iento my socks in a few months!

      3. GreenTealael

        I see what you did lol

        They still kinda work but only by accident 😓, I couldn't find my exact size so I decided to play around with band/cup manipulation. But now I know padded bras may be adding a full cup size I don't own...

        I've been counting on that for years!

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...
