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.

      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.
