Any March 2018 Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

I just got my surgery date for March 5. I am excited and nervous at the same time but I'm trying to hold it all together. :)

I'm March 12th but RNY. Does that still count? Stupid diabetes pretty much dictated the course of action.

I'm scheduled for March 12th! Yah! I've been waiting for over 8 years! My husband's insurance wouldn't cover my surgery but, now I have different insurance!

Does anyone else get nervous when you read the posts from fellow sleevers that lost 15-20 in the beginning and then nothing else? Must admit it does make me a little nervous. It has got to be so devastating to Work so hard to get to this point and then you lose such a little amount of weight.

I've only told one friend as well. I've done the shopping for the pre-op and post-op...feel like I should be doing something else! The waiting is hard I'm spending a lot of time building a Pinterest page for recipes, support blogs, motivation, exercises to help as I recover.

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

        I am sorry to hear you are struggling. Do what you need to do to stay healthy mentally and physically. I hope you can get to the other side of your depression. Hang in there.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.
