Doing really well, weight loss is slow, guess I just have to be patient.
Feeling really well no issues with anything apart from a little constipation. 1 month out 6 kg down. All bloods cane back today perfect, been using the Patches.
Best of luck for tomorrow, will be thinking of you. Update when you can :)

I had the mini done on 3/1/18. I don’t know about my weight losses yet though. I’m still retaining so much Fluid from the the IV’s and travel that my legs and feet are so full of fluid. I’m not going to weigh until next week.

Hello everyone I’m sorry I haven’t posted much I had my surgery March 9th and unfortunately after surgery about a leak was found and repaired immediately less 24 hours after surgery I’m covering and its taking much longer then I expected due to my leak a sequela of it I developed a abscess where the repair was so that will be drained Wednesday. Due to all of this I’m just overwhelmed. I’ve wanted to update but I’m just not up to much lately.

Hi!

I’m 4 days post op and feeling marvellous so far. Home and happy :)

I’m struggling a bit to get enough Fluid in but figure this is bruising/swelling and will ease by itself. Mission hydration is the important thing right now.

How’s everyone doing now?

How are you doing.I am considering getting the mgb as a revision surgery to the sleeve. Who was your doctor . And if you are doing better now how much weight have you loss.

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
