Any June 2018 Sleevers in Here?!



Recommended Posts

Awe thanks @lisarocks. I am already weaned off from caffeine and sugar due to Ramadan (16 hour fasts only eating after sundown and before sunup) so withdrawal happened for me a few weeks ago and I never really went back...it was terrible enough the first time around. I am happy it’s gotten easier for you!!

I’m anxious about going all liquid starting tomorrow. I find the shakes make me feel dehydrated and I can’t drink enough Water to make up for it and then I just feel tired. Had my hospital registration yesterday so trying to tell myself it will go quickly and get distracted at work. Got the sugar free popsicles as someone suggested to get through....

Reading about everyone on the other side makes me feel so much better when I freak out a bit though - especially the photos :-)

And although I am probably late, Happy Rid al-Fitr. I hope there would be a Muslim I could wish that for. May your surgery on the 28th be blessed with excellent healing. I will be having a RnY in July, probably the middle, and am hopeful mine will go well also.

I know it is Eid al- Fitr, my phone is a heathen with missplaced spell-correct, it not only hates foreign words it misspells English as well! Please forgive me, the phone is beyond forgiveness!😪

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!

Hi, hope you are doing better each day as I am. My sleeve surgery was last Friday 6/15 and that day was the worst but I still managed to get up and walk. My post op appt is next Tuesday, and I can't wait to weigh in. Getting tired of the liquid diet, it gets old.

First day was the hardest and everyday has goetten just a little better. Today is day 6 and I was able to cook a whole family dinner, walk 30 minutes twice without getting super tired, and drank 40 oz of fluids.... just remember that first day to keep your eye on the prize because it’s hard day.

Hi, same here with the surgery on 6/15. I have been feeling better each day. I'm anxious to weigh myself, my post op appt is next Tuesday and hopefully change my diet. Are you still on clear liquid fluids?

Yes, I'm on Clear Liquids until Sunday, then I start the full liquids diet for 2 weeks. I'm so ready to move to full liquids i miss food lol. I've got my count down going... mostly i've been craving avacados. So once i get to the mushy food stage i think i'll be fine. When do you get off clear liquids?

I broke out my scale because my mother in law said I look thinner. I was like she’s crazy I don’t feel any thinner, but since my surgery on the 19th I’ve lost 16 lbs!

Had surgery yesterday 6/21, checked out the first day. I wish i had stayed overnight. Only the pain meds there were working.

Taking tramdol now, have to crush it...no fun and doesnt work that well.

Really nauseous, hurts when i sip Water. Looking forward to feeling better soon!

Just found this site, I had my sleeve on the 13th. Was fine in the hospital, but the first 2 days home afterwards were rough. As soon as I got on the full liquid diet, it's been smooth sailing. Mostly just miss eating, but can start next Wednesday. Down 9.4 pounds since surgery.

Gypsyvangirl, I take Tramadol for back problems and it really doesn’t do much. I’m hoping the more weight I lose, the better my back will feel.

I’m 10 days out and just had a long outing to the movies and to pick up a few groceries and I’m exhausted. (I was already exhausted after my shower). I am excited - I ordered a new water bottle - it’s called a Cirkul bottle and it comes with these cartridges of flavoring. The Water doesn’t do anything unless it goes through the cartridge. I just tried the fruit punch (zero calorie or sugar or anything) and it’s amazing. It’s delicious. It also helps that it’s a sport bottle top so I can sip easier and not take big gulps. Definitely my new favorite tool for this surgery.

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      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
