I'm 7 weeks post-op and down 58.5LBS. I was off pain meds in 5 days. I've had 2 dumping episodes and have vomited twice (I assume from overeating). I can tolerate pretty much all foods and can even have a martini or two. My only regret is not doing this surgery years ago!

For those of you that are pre-op or in your first days post-op, stay strong! It's worth it!

Me too! I just had my pre-op appt today. I'm scheduled for December 10th. Hubby not on board but willing to care for me. I'm so down tonight because he ruined my excitement. I'm 318 bmi 52. I'm down from my initial weight of 336 without dieting. I'm scared but happy because I too should have done this a long time ago. I'm 32, working full time while in college. I need group support like you ladies! Keep up the positive posts!

Congratulations on your great weight loss! I'm also 7 weeks post op, (surgery 10/9/18). So far I'm down 45 lbs since initial visit, 19 since surgery. I'm half way to the goal my surgeon set! My personal goal will probably be lower. I guess I'm not quite as adventurous as you though because I just reached the point of trying "all foods" this week per my plan. Haven't tried alcohol either. I've had a pretty nice recovery too...followed instructions as best I could and am happy with results so far!
