Late December Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say good luck to all of you. I'm a late December sleever and coming up on my 1 year anniversary of my sleeve (12/30) so I was experiencing all you are now, last year. You will do great and it's completely worth it. Just listen to your body, sip sip sip and follow your surgeons plan to a T.

Thank you for your encouragement! You're starting weight is about where I started as well. Your post made me feel so much better because you're about the same height as i am! You're really inspiring.!

I actually made my husband take over meals for my kids during my pre-op (which was only 4 days) and then during a couple months post op. It was actually easier post-op because in the early days I had no desire to eat.

Thank You Brittany! This site was so helpful to me early out so if I want to do something for someone else. You will do great, it's a process and it's tough at first but it gets better with each passing day.

I had my surgery yesterday. The gas pain is awful and morphine can’t touch it. But otherwise I’m going ok. Just really sore. I get to drink some liquids today. We’ll see how that goes? Swallowing saliva burns my stomach, so I’m a little nervous about drinking. But my mouth is sooooooo dry, I’m also looking forward to it. How are you guys doing? For those of you scheduled for today or tomorrow, good luck!!

I had mine on the 20th. Pain and nausea were much worse than I was prepared for, but now things are much better in that department. I was only in the hospital for about 24 hours and had great care while I was there. Down 17 lbs so far! I also started buying smaller clothes through Woot and Groupon deals, but I’m not quite there yet (my wife also bought me a Ross gift card for Christmas). Can’t wait to see what the second week brings!

The dry mouth gets better once you’re off the IV drip and drinking fluids. Everything gets a little better each day, I promise!

December 29 is my day! Today and tomorrow (12/27-28) are my clear liquid only days prior to surgery. Nervous about the procedure.

I’m home from the hospital. In considerable pain, but no vomiting so far. I’ve been planning and stressing about vsg for months. I can’t believe I did it. Now I’m just trying to get Water in (despite the dagger to my tummy feeling). I hope this gets better soon. The nurses at the hospital were all great except one who told me I don’t look big enough for this surgery in a judgmental tone. I told her it has nothing to do with my looks. I guess some people think of this as plastic surgery. I actually am content with how I look. I did this for my bones and because of my family history. But of course that’s a lot to explain to everyone.
Oh, and I’m seeing double. Did anyone else experience that after surgery???
Good luck to all of you who are having surgery this week!!

Anyone scheduled for sleeve in late Dec? Mine is on Dec 26, and I’d love to be in touch with others going through it with me.

I had surgery on the 26th too. I just saw your post. I would love staying in touch, I don't have a big support group.

Dec. 26th sleeved as well. I came home with quite a bit of stomach pain. I believe partially to a bit of coughing, and laughing. Laughter is the best medicine with the exception of having your abdomen worked on. I have been given the go ahead to eat from the stage 2 menu options, Protein Shakes, 1/4 of rice or cream of wheat. I was given the green light for my meds and so far 3 tablespoons of food is what I can get down. Water intake has been slow as well.

I'm going to full liquids tomorrow. I'm keeping Water, crystal light down, although I do get nauseated if I drink to much, or too fast. My pain is on the left side, but I haven't taken a pain pill all day. I just feel wiped out, although I turn 63 next week, maybe it's my age toon too! lol. I do like to laugh too, but pain, and when I cough is the worse. At least we got through the surgery and to the losers bench.

      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...

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        Girl, that stall will break. Give your body a minute to realize what's happening and catch up with itself...it'll kick back in gear! 💓
