Any June 2018 Sleevers in Here?!



Recommended Posts

Howdy everyone! Got sleeved this Monday (6/18). My abdomen is super sore and hurts when I get up, cough, laugh, etc. Monday and Tuesday I was very nauseous but it’s gotten a little better. I’m currently working on sipping my Water. It’s harder than I thought to take small sips instead of big gulps!

Almost 3w post, and went to the gym today for first time! Felt good - just some treadmill jogging and light weights, but no light headedness or any trouble!

So I'm great as long as I'm sitting doing nothing, but moving around makes me dizzy and weak.

First of all, great job!!! Secondly, I definitely feel your pain here. I’m trying to increase my walks, but the shortest walk exhausts me. I’m using vitamin patches for the first time today, so I feel a bit better.

Hi everyone, I have been sleeved and I truly can’t believe it! Recovery isn’t all that bad, just mostly nausea and a little pain with the incisions. Other then that, I’m so excited to start this journey!

Mine was about 3-4 days after surgery. It does get better. Just walk as much as you can!! I know everyone says that but it does work!!

The gas is killing me. I’m trying to drink Water, but then immediate gas. I walk around and burp a bunch then try to drink some more.

June 18th for me! My recovery has been very easy so far, my surgeon installed 2 On-Q pain pumps that were just removed today.

I am STRUGGLING with getting my fluids and Protein in, hoping it gets easier as the swelling goes down. I do have some abdominal distension still from the gas used in the surgery, but nothing terribly severe.

June 13th! Icky as all the I-just-had-major-surgery stuff is, at least I don't have the anxiety of waiting and the frustration of the pre-op diet anymore. Big non-offensive hugs to those still in queue.

@wittymommy.. I am finishing up day 4 pre op. First three days had bad Migraines. Withdrawal from sugar and caffeine. Was super hungry and starting re thinking the whole thing and whether I could do it. Woke up on 4th day and no Migraine and feeling strong and pumped. If it is tough at the beginning, just know it is getting easier.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
