I had a small hemorrhage, which they said was normal, and did the procedure. Everyone was so kind and it went well. I’m feeling relieved this is over and now I can focus on my up coming surgery. Thank all you ladies for your support

Thank u so much for checking in on me! It warmed my heart! I had gastric bypass dec.5th I down 70lbs since then. I also started a new job in the medical world which I love! So I’m so happy. I think I would like to make a photo collage of my progress. I would love to see others as well! Thank u for checking on me.

hello!! I was wondering if you told your surgeon? and if so, did they test for the HCG as well? I'm in the same situation now. Except, I'm having an abortion on tuesday and the surgery is scheduled for June 15th.

You did what was needed, and if in this situation you are at peace who am I to argue?
That is something I respect,about Pope Francis, bet you didn't think he Would get mentioned here. But he has told qustioners on many subjects he will not,judge them, that is a job he is willing to leave to God. In the last week or so he told a homosexual man he is living as God created him. And to me that shows a more Christ-like attitude than others in the past have shown.👼

Hollymarie36 yes I told my surgeon, and on my surgery date my test was negative. I had gastric bypass and it’s been 6 months since surgery and I’m doing great! Down 91 pounds!

Everyone has been so amazing and supportive, I’m sorry it has taken me so long to respond my life after surgery has changed for the better! I am working full time and so active and happy! Hollymarie36 update me please on how you are doing, I am sorry you are having to go thru this, it is a extremely emotional process I and my husband have decided he will get a vasectomy this month since we would hate to have to go thru something like that again. I have many friends who got pregnant at the same time and are half way thru the pregnancy now and it is a reminder but I know we made the best choice we could.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
