Sleeve Buddy need - Surgery date 12/4



Recommended Posts

Hi! Looking for a sleeve buddy... my surgery date is 12/4. I'm 34 and 325 and 5'7. Looking for someone with similar stats and goals. My surgeon predicts my goal weight to be 180 🤗. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of friends or family that understand what I'm going through and it's been tough so far... feeling alone. But I'm a super positive person that's looking to make the best life change ever. If you feel the same, let's be buddies 💕

My surgery date is pending and I’m hoping it will be December 4th. I’ve been doing the preop diet since October so I’m ready to go as soon as I get the funds to schedule and book my flight to MX. My stats are closer to cc1018. It’s getting close!!

I've had the same experience when I had the lap band 6 years ago and then now with the sleeve. We can all pitch in together to be buddies if that works for you? I'm 61 and right now I'm at 265 and goal weight is 140. Feeling alone with no support is a trigger for failure. We cannot accept failure and must stick to this life change for success in our lives and health. Your future is waiting for you!! Don't think me being 61 that I'm too old, people think I'm around 40-45 and I'm mommy to my grandkids. I just hope I can keep that look when I lose weight!

Hi Sunbunny!

I’m 32/295/5’7 - is A/W/H the new A/S/L? [emoji68]‍[emoji335]

I’m getting the sleeve 12/19 and definitely looking for a pal in this process as well.

How has the liquid diet been going for you? Are you pumped for next week?

Lol @JessNYC at the A/S/L thing. I thought the same when I wrote this post. I'm officially sleeved now. Still can't believe I did it!

I'm one of the lucky ones that didn't have to do a liquid diet. I was surprised but super grateful not to have to do it.

I had the sleeve Monday. I'm 35 - 252lbs - 5'3". I'm doing well with recover. The gas is the most painful part.

Ambitious question - I am stuck in NY for the holidays, and not able to go home to CA. I want to maybe see some plays and make good use of winter in NY, but am hesitant to expend the $$ if I won't feel up to it. For those recently sleeved, a week in, how viable is it to sit for 2-3 hours in a play?

Hi Sunbunny,

How is your recovery going? I am in Fl also and my stats are somewhat close to yours except for height. I started out over 400 lbs. I'm also close in age. It may be tough to do a number of things while you're recovering, so try to be patient as you go through the process. If you have any questions drop a message anytime. Also getting close to getting under 300 for the first time in at least 10 years or more.

I was sleeved on 12/5 and wanted to go to a movie today but didn't, not because I didn't feel like I could do it, just doing other things. Have fun in NY, a great place for the holidays. Was your surgery in NY?

@Roadrunner 1 recovery is going good! Finally starting to feel normal. I was really tired and nauseous last week but I got thru it 😀.

Finally had some real "food" -- yogurt and some cream of chicken.... nice change compared to all Clear Liquids and Protein Shakes. 😉

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
