Hi everyone! Surgery on Monday!



Recommended Posts

Hi! My name is Melissa. I’ve debated whether I should post or just remain a lurker... but here I am! Everyone here is so great and supportive, I figured it would only help me if I joined y’all. I have been overweight for literally my entire life, and have never been able to keep a significant amount of weight off for long. I have no co-morbidities, but I do have PCOS. I’m 5’4’’ with a weight of 279 currently. I’m having my gastric sleeve surgery Monday the 25th!!! I’ve been on a liquid diet since last Monday and have not cheated once, so I’m super proud of myself. I really wanted a whataburger yesterday haha. I wish you all the best of luck!

Hey Melissa !

I also have PCOS and that was the driving force for my surgery. My husband and I want a family and this surgery was literally our last hope. I wish you luck and a speedy recovery. Please keep in touch with me , I would like to see how your weight loss is going after surgery, if the PCOS affects it!! The surgery is awesome and a life changer! You will do great 👍

Momo, let’s definitely keep in touch! How long ago did you have surgery? It will be so fantastic for you and your future family! I used clomid and metformin to get pregnant with my two, but I was terrified the entire time that something would happen because of my weight. I was SO lucky though... no high blood pressure, no diabetes, and full-term vaginal deliveries with both (sorry if tmi haha).
I really am so excited for you!!

@MelTed

haha don’t worry it wasn’t TMI

i have type two diabetes so it’s been difficult. My Doc isn’t going to want to give me Clomid until the 18 months is up. We’ve done everything but my weight was aslways a factor. I take my metfomin religiously!!

Honeslty im hoping that I lose enough weight with this sleeve to kick PCOS in the booty and get pregnant all on my own.

They surgery is great I’ve been having great numbers with my glucos testing!

You will do great like I said ! Just afterward get plenty of rest because once you get up and go you don’t stop !!

hi Momo & Melissa - i, too, have PCOS and am having Duodenal Switch surgery on July 11. I am excited and i also wonder how my PCOS will affect my weight loss.

Momo, it looks like you are doing great. How long has it been since you first had surgery? Do you still have PCOS symptoms?

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
