February 2018 Success Stories



Recommended Posts


I was sleeved 2/12 and still experiencing midsection pain. It’s pretty sharp and constant. Happens when I’m stretching, bending and even when I’m just been sitting too long. Really annoying and frustrating. I’m going to see my Dr. this coming week. My incision are fine but that damn pain is keeping me down.

Same here. I was sleeved on 2/21. Pains when I stretch or stay put for a long time. Seeing doctor in Tuesday. Hopefully he has some answers.

Had Gastric Bypass on 2/8 & will be celebrating 4 weeks on Thursday. So far I've lost 37 pounds & off of 2 of my 3 diabetes medications, one of them being insulin so I'm extremely happy about that. I'm back to work but still feeling weak only have enough gas in the tank til about 3 in the afternoon but pushing ahead. I'm living off of Soup, cottage cheese & yogurt. I don't think that I'd be sane if it wasn't for sugar free Popsicles. Hitting my first stall during the last couple days I was losing a pound to pound & a half a day, knew the stall was going to come but still al little bitter that the scale hasn't moved in two days. Also during the last couple days a new phenomenon has come up, just THINKING about a Protein Shake makes my mouth break into that warm pre vomit feeling, not good. Going to try and mix in some scrambled or hard boiled eggs. So weird not being physically hungry I try to explain it but nobody believes it, but I know you guys do.

Hope everyone is well, prayers for your recoveries!

Let me know how your doctors visit went please. I don’t see mine until tomorrow and experiencing a lot of sharp pain. I was sleeved 02/12. Pain should have reduced and seems it’s getting worst. I’m getting really worried

I've been doing really good since surgery. Had the sleeve on 2/9 and so far I've lost 29lbs including what I lost on preop. Today I must have done to much. Having pretty bad pain on my side just praying it's not another kidney stone or kidney infection!

DS on 2/8, doing really great with fluids and Protein but it literally takes me all day! lol. Unfortunately I had a hiccup and as soon as I had my surgery I started having problems with my gallbladder and had to have it removed 3 weeks after my wls surgery! Recovering nicely now I'm having some trouble with my liver enzymes... but I'm keeping my head up and keeping on!!! oh but the amazing thing I've lost 34 lbs since I started all this and that is amazing!!!

Sleeved on 2/28 last day of February, first day after surgery was rough as hell. But each day has gotten better. My first post op appointment is on Thursday can’t wait to graduate from Clear Liquids to full liquids. Thankfully haven’t experienced any hunger yet.

Saw my doctor.. he mentioned Neosporin with pain relief ointment. I bought it and incisions feel better.
