Thank you so much. *hugs* my time slot to be at the Hospital is 730am. I'm really excited. Also of course nervous. I'm ready to begin this journey. Not looking forward to the pain thats gonna be coming. But it will be worth it. Looking forward to using my new tool.

I'm officially on the losers bench. I had the gastric sleeve.

This morning the just had me drink some Water and I tolerated it ok. So now I'm on juice. If that is ok. I get to have coffee or tea.

The pain is a little worse then I thought. But since I can now swallow things I had oral pain meds. The IV pain meds didnt work as long.

Congrats Debbi! Welcome to the losing team!

The pain will take a week or so to subside, most of it will be gas from hell. After that I had major fatigue for about 6 weeks--all normal. Good luck.

On Wednesday I had my biggest scale victory I entered 2vill and I have only been waiting for that since before Christmas. I was close then, hovering at 308-310 and finally broke through and this morning I weighed in at 297. I am so stoked!!!!!!

Y'all are amazing and you can totally do it! Almost four years out from surgery now and I'm still going strong, don't let anyone tell you 300+ pounders will always fail/regain.

I'm 315, just started my journey. Doing the dietitian and nurse meetings now and hopefully have my surgery within the year. It's reassuring to see people who started near my weight say it's working out for them, especially long term. I know my expected weight after a year is around 220, but I'm personally hoping to get down in the 1's.

Following the thread!

        Congratulations to her Proud Granny, and wishing her a bright and successful future.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

      seems like the biggest issue right now is consistency in my bowel movement, what are yall using. I've tried probiotics but no luck,

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
