3 months ago this was a random thought, revision surgery! Best thought I ever had, I’m ready for 7:45 6/12...I’ve ordered the vitamin patches, tomorrow will stock up on Protein beverages, have gained so much insight from others on this forum and the Facebook page...working tomorrow till 3am then to the hospital at 5:45. I’ve lost weight since the process started, took pics and measurements today, I’m fired up and ready to go! If I have any surgery twins let’s keep in touch and inspire and motivate each other!

@Diva302 You're going to do great! I had my DS on June 9, 2017, so it's been one year now.

@Diva302 I was revised from a lapband after two miserable years of blaming myself for the band's failure (I gained 20 pounds). Expect a stall three weeks post-op. It happens to the best of us. Everyone's journey is different, but I know it's hard not compare your loss with someone else's. I know I did. I was a slow loser. By the end of the first month, I had lost 14.5 pounds. I know most patients lose that in the first week. By 15 weeks, I had lost 40 pounds, and by 25 weeks I had lost 53 pounds. At one year, I'm 77 pounds lighter and wear a size 8-10 pants and a medium top. I rode my bike a lot last summer, but that's the extent of my exercise. Ninety-percent of my weight loss has been what has gone into my mouth and from drinking Water. I had a few weeks when my body didn't want to let go of the weight, but then "whoosh," it would drop 3 pounds in a week. Let you body have those moments to sigh and take a breath without freaking out. Trust your surgery. The first three months are the hardest. You'll have cravings but also days when nothing tastes like it used to. That will pass. And so will the gas....oh, my. Be prepared for that adventure.

Thanks for the tips !! Looking forward to feeling better, in the hospital for another week due to some complications.. Surprised to have gained in hospital on clears and IV fluids I’m up 15 pounds PLUS GAS TOO...that’s still trapped...
Awesome successful journey!
It didn’t happen overnight so I’m prepared for the peaks and valleys...but it’s on when I get home! I bought a new scale that’ll sync to my Fitbit, with all my stats,

@Diva302The reason I asked is bc I've never known a full DSER to have success with the Patches. Keep a very watchful eye on your bloods as time goes on.

Will do!! I have an appt for labs in August may go sooner if I’m feeling sluggish.. I’ve read reviews from DS patients that didn’t have an issue.. so I’ll just have to find another source to cover everything... out local hospital is Bariatric accredited Ans sells Bariatric Vitamins and foods in-house so that will bey go to !! Thanks for the heads up!! I have a month supply and will use accordingly and go from there

      Uh oh! Something happened to Matty this week. I was in a local Wawa (think east coast convenience store) and a gorgeous girl ran smack into me while I was grabbing a grape Propel - just couldn't deal with anymore water today. She was texting and walking ... okay, yeah, this missed me as Gen X'er. Well she looked up at me and flashed me one helluva smile. I was feeling pretty good that day so it was time to bring out some game, "So you know I can't let a gorgeous girl who crashes into me go without getting her phone number." LOL! She turned beet red, asked for my phone and sent herself a text message from mine. She said, "Because you men never call ..." I don't know quite what I was thinking but figured it would be one heck of a ride. What is it with me and short girls? I seem to attract them and I don't honestly care about height. She's all of 5'4". I knew she was young but it didn't occur to me how young. What did I just get myself into?
      I told myself no dating until the scale reads 190 but this new me is feeling sexually driven like I have never been before. Well, she's right I wasn't really planning on calling her so she called me. So I told her my age (41) and was shocked to hear that she generally goes for men older than 35. We must've talked on the phone close to 3 hours. You're going to think I am lying when I tell you she's a 3rd year med student and is interested in training to be a bariatric surgeon. The stars might've just aligned but I want to go slow and told her that I had weight loss surgery. She's totally my type - the professional, highly educated, and ambitious woman. That's what frightens me, because in the past, this has lead to unhealthy relationships. Well, I've got a date lined up for Saturday and I just want to have some fun. I needed money in order to make this happen so I sold a bunch of old computer equipment and managed to raise some capital for this adventure. I know I won't be drinking alcohol but that's okay.

        This is an awesome story Matty! I'm so happy for you. I hope you have a blast :)

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        I'm delighted for you! Have fun!

      3. Mattymatt

        Thank you! It's all a little too surreal because all of my relationships have been people I've met online.

      It's more successfully minded to ask questions like.... When can I begin working out.... Or when can I return to work as opposed to when can I eat that or this again.....

      Down another three pounds and had my one-month post-surgery follow-up (although its actually be 7 weeks tomorrow, their scheduling sucks). The nurse practitioner was pleased with my weight loss (36 pounds in 7 weeks) and told me I was cleared to go back to water aerobics and whatever else I would like to pursue exercise wise. Now to find a new pair of tennis shoes
