Any June 2018 Sleevers in Here?!



Recommended Posts

Waiting for my date! Everything went through to insurance on the 1st and they said I’ll know this week when my surgery date is! Which should be 4-6 weeks since it was submitted so I’m hoping for a June date

My problem right now is that I e been so busy with house buying ad land preparations that I’ve fallen off the wagon in regards to eating well. During my six months of medical weight loss, I’ve done incredibly well and even lost 39 pounds. I don’t need anyone to shove food down my throat. I’m currently having trouble with eating properly all on my own! 🙁

I hope you are doing ok now that you are post-op. Or stats are similar, and I'm also from Texas, so we can follow each other.

Hi everyone, I had the sleeve done on June 6th. Procedure went great! I’m doing my walking in the house. I’m very sore but nothing too bad. I just feel kind of bruised inside. Sneezing and coughing hurt. They gave me a lot of drugs. Two being pain meds. I feel the high dose ibuprofen works better than anything. It’s hard to keep to the three ounces of liquid at a time. Makes it hard to get all the pills down. I’m just glad it’s over with but I feel it’s totally worth it!! Good luck to all of you for your surgeries!!😁

Tomorrow is my day! First case of the morning. I’m excited, nervous, scared. So very emotional. I’ve been crying off and on all day. I’m ready but I don’t know how to feel. My life is changing tomorrow.

How are you feeling? I took advantage of ALL the pain relief for the first 72 hours after surgery really made a difference for me. I haven’t needed anything since, but it was great skipping the argh I’ve been hit my a truck phase.

IntergalacticGal, I am in the same boat. Tomorrow I am the first case of the day. I have been down with a Headache all day that I have decided is just from being anxious. I know that this the best thing for both of us and we will be so much better for it. Good luck and keep me posted on how you are doing.

How are you feeling? Take what you need to recover and welcome to the other side

I feel pretty good. I haven’t been hungry at all. Just thirsty. The nausea and gas pain is the worse part. Other than that, I’m ok.

Surgery went well, I was up and moving just a few hours after. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to come home yesterday because I was having so much nausea and was not able to get in enough fluids. After changing my nausea med I was doing much better and able to come home about 6pm last night. I am doing so much better today. Still taking the pain med about every 4 hrs but I don't think that will be much longer. I am ready for this next chapter of my life.

I was sleeved 6/1. First two days were miserable - really was wondering what the heck I did to myself! But feeling better, tolerating full liquids, walking 10k steps/day, no hunger pangs or intense cravings, pain basically gone, and losing weight rapidly!

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

        Had surgery on Thursday the 17th. Everything went well and came home the next day. I have been on two protein shakes and liquids/broth each day since but will finally graduate to pureed foods on Thursday. Been walking and doing my breathing exercises as recommended. No pain that Tylenol can't ease but only needed it twice since I've been home. Don't bother taking extra stuff to the hospital as you will not use it. No time to read or talking as you will be sipping all day long and walking. And they will be giving you pain meds so you will be sleepy. Definitely take lip balm and wear loose clothes to the hospital and wear the same ones home. No need to overpack. Good luck everyone who will be going next. YOU GOT THIS!!!!

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      2. Iluvbats

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
