Pannulectomy at 65



Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there were any women who had had the pannulectomy at 60-65 years old and how you did with healing

Well I guess there isn't anyone as old as I am that has had the pannulectomy. My pre-appointment is getting close and I am a little nervous and wonder if I should forget about having it done because of my age.

I attended a webinar yesterday and one of the questions I asked was if age was a limiting factor in having this surgery The surgeon said no, your overall health and having reached a weight-loss goal/plateau were much more important than my age... which is 62! This is a surgeon I trust, whose work I am familiar with; he basically reconstructed my husband's leg and saved it after knee surgery went horribly wrong and became life-threateningly infected.

Will be following you. I had to google what this procedure was 🤣😁 Ah, my apron which I hate!!!! Just got sleeved and would love to have this done. When you get a Tummy Tuck does this get rid of the Apron too?

Yes it does but the Tummy Tuck is a harder surgery but the younger people do it a lot but as long as my insurance is willing to cover this I am happy. I go for an appointment just to talk to my surgeon on the 4th oct to find out anything I have missed about it.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.
