Congratulations @New Challenge, my new Down Under friend. I'm still in training but next month💥 July💥I will receive my "call up" to the major leagues and become an RnY myself. Started my journey in August 2015, many ups,down, hairpin turns, a roadblock in February, luckily it didn't stop me completely, and I CAN SEE the Finish Line ahead. Not sure of exact date, maybe middle-ish but I do believe it will happen! Did you know our joking bypasser phrase?
We all become Kangaroos because we leave Operating Theatre with our very own pouches. So I will,become a Kangaroo Kid and I am already bouncing in anticipation!💥🚩💥😛💥🚩💥

I feel great. Never used my pain meds. Only used Tylenol sporadically for first week. Slowly introducing soft foods. 4 oz of hamburger yesterday went through the blender. I prob had only 1 oz before feeling it. The rest went to the freezer and I will try again later. Scrambled egg and cheddar was amazing!

Hi I’m new to this thread. I had a sleeve revision to bypass on 6/18 and hate clears. I feel I want substance like stage 2. I’m hungry perhaps because I haven’t been cleared to start Protein Shakes yet. Anyone else feeling hungry ?

Hi! I just had my RNY on the 18th. Im still having trouble meeting my daily quota of clears but i have been drinking clear Protein Shakes as a part of the clears. Premier Protein makes a great tropical punch one. I only drink like 1 per day at the moment. Im more focused on Water, propel, Decaf tea, and popsicles. Do you have any advice about getting more clears in?

@Buonnatale how was your pain afterwards?

I remember waking up in recovery in a lot of pain... then I just kind of passed back out from the anesthesia. Once I got to my room, I slept the rest of the afternoon and got up to start walking. It was tolerable but there was definitely pain. Every day got easier, for sure. When I got home after two days in the hospital, I took percocet for the pain but only needed them for a couple days, then switched to tylenol. I think the most uncomfortable thing for me was sleep on my back. A recliner definitely helped! I am however a side sleeper... I had issues with sleeping once I started feeling better because of this.

Hi there: I've lost 10 lbs. in 10 days on my pre-op diet. So thrilled! My goal is to lose 100 lbs. total so I feel good about the jump start as I have 90 to go. My surgery date is 4 days away. Eeeek! @Hal711 - I think I'll order some of those fruit Punch Premier Protein waters. They sound great!

How long do we have to sleep on our backs? I'm a side sleeper too.

I am a belly sleeper, which is not happening. I have used plenty of pillows to prop up in bed, which helps.

I slept on my side last night and am currently laying on my side. It hasn't bothered me. I'm a stomach sleeper and I'm too scared to try that lol

Yay! Good to know the side sleeping is working. I got a pregnancy pillow so hoping that will aid some relief in early days along with lots of extra other fluff.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      March 4, 2013   LAST VISITED
      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
