2 weeks to a new me...getting excited and nervous Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty



Recommended Posts

Hi All, Finally decided to look into weight loss surgery after no energy to work out, feet are killing me because of weight and recent photos at a wedding someone posted of me on FB. I have no idea how I got here! Yeah I know. It was cupcakes.

Wanted to get Balloon but doctor said he had a better idea. He suggested Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty . He said better results, less complications , less invasive than cutting and less costly. After a lot of research I decided to go ahead with procedure.

My doctor made it seem that it was a super quick recovery . I haven’t met with nutritionist yet but saw on forums all the no no’s!

Yikes I love coffee, occasional wine

Is it painful? When can I have my coffee and occassional wine?

Thanks in advance

I understand the first or second day after the procedure you may be a little sore, hopefully it won't be too bad for you. Walking helps.

Your doctor/nutritionist will advise on the coffe and wine.

You are about a week away from your procedure, do you have a pre-op diet?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.
